eISSN 2093-6338 there is no de nite marker to distinguish MDS from other hematologic diseases based on the patient’s peripheral blood. Findings of dysplastic features from peripheral blood are limited. Large or abnormally granulated platelets, pseudo–Pelger-Huët anomaly and hypogranular cytoplasm in neutrophils, basophilic stippling, and poikilocytosis in red blood cells (RBCs) are features that can be observed in a peripheral blood smear using light microscopy [1]. However, these features are…

Measurements of 3-D morphology of individual red blood cells upon localized photothermal effects using gold nanorods
This work investigated the in-situ photothermal response of human red blood cells by combining photothermal heat generation and 3D quantitative phase imaging techniques and investigated the irreversible deformation of RBCs when multiple intense excitation shocks are applied.


Profiling individual human red blood cells using common-path diffraction optical tomography
This study presents the simultaneous and quantitative measurement of the morphological, chemical, and mechanical parameters of individual RBCs employing optical holographic microtomography and demonstrates that the correlation analyses of these RBC parameters provide unique information for distinguishing and understanding diseases.
Minimal morphological criteria for defining bone marrow dysplasia: a basis for clinical implementation of WHO classification of myelodysplastic syndromes
A score to define minimal morphological criteria associated to the presence of marrow dysplasia was developed and showed high sensitivity/specificity, acceptable reproducibility and was independently validated.
The Effects of Ethanol on the Morphological and Biochemical Properties of Individual Human Red Blood Cells
Significant decreases of Hb content and concentration in RBC cytoplasm at the lethal condition were observed and dynamic fluctuation of RBC membranes increased significantly upon ethanol treatments, indicating ethanol-induced membrane fluidization.
Lipid bilayer and cytoskeletal interactions in a red blood cell
The DPD simulations serve as validation of the unique two-component model and lead to useful insights into the biomechanical interactions between the lipid bilayer and the cytoskeleton of the RBC, and provide a basis for further studies to probe cell mechanistic processes in health and disease.
Real-time visualization of 3-D dynamic microscopic objects using optical diffraction tomography.
The real-time visualization capability of optical diffraction tomography is demonstrated with imaging the dynamics of Brownian motion of an anisotropic colloidal dimer and the dynamic shape change in a red blood cell upon shear flow.
Active illumination using a digital micromirror device for quantitative phase imaging.
A powerful and cost-effective method for active illumination using a digital micromirror device (DMD) for quantitative phase-imaging techniques and the fast and stable illumination-control capability of the proposed method is demonstrated by imaging colloidal spheres and biological cells.
Dyserythropoiesis of myelodysplastic syndromes
A better understanding of the mechanisms of dyserthropoiesis is required to treat anemia in non-del(5q) MDS, especially in case of resistance to first-line therapy by erythropOiesis-stimulating agents.
Refractive index tomograms and dynamic membrane fluctuations of red blood cells from patients with diabetes mellitus
The observations strongly support the idea that slow and irreversible glycation of haemoglobin and membrane proteins of RBCs by hyperglycaemia significantly compromises RBC deformability in diabetic patients.
Biconcave shape of human red-blood-cell ghosts relies on density differences between the rim and dimple of the ghost's plasma membrane

The experiments in this paper identify some of the underlying determinates of cell shape and appear to be evidence that the difference in the densities between the rim and the dimple regions of red blood cells and their ghosts may be responsible for their biconcave shape.
