Similarly, in the study conducted by Akkaya and Uysal,14 which was a rare study investigating whether there is a significant relationship between the success of single-dose methotrexate treatment and complete blood cell count parameters, no significant result was observed between surgery requirement and PLT and PDW percentage.

We received 11281 samples for complete blood cell count in the 5-day period, of which 50 had basophilia, as defined above.
Lab tests may include TSH levels, complete blood cell count, prolactin levels, or a pelvic ultrasonogram, according to the position statement.
Table 1 Diagnostic studies done before autologous bone marrow transplantation Cardiopulmonary function studies * Multigated acquisition scans (at rest and during exercise) * Pulmonary function studies * Electrocardiogram Diagnostic studies to stage cancer * Computed tomography scans (chest, abdomen, pelvis, head) * a Bone scan * Bilateral bone marrow biopsy and aspirations * Complete blood cell count with differential * Chemistry profile (with liver function tests) * 24-hour urine test for creatinine and total protein measurements * Viral serology studies
Results of a complete blood cell count revealed a marked inflammatory leukogram, and cytologic examination of a crop swab sample identified gram-negative bacilli and occasional yeast organisms.
The latter could be accomplished in 2 ways: (1) have laboratories establish flow cytometry referral procedures, with results to be received within 72 hours, for all cases where the Rosette or acid elution techniques indicate additional doses of RhIg are required; and (2) encourage blood cell analyzer manufacturers to add FMH detection methods to the flow cytometry components of their complete blood cell count analyzers, eliminating the need for initial Rosette or acid elution testing and making an effective FMH detection and quantitation method widely available to most laboratories in the industrialized world where obstetric services are offered.
(4-6) Results of a complete blood cell count may show leukocytosis, neutrophilia with left shift, and thrombocytopenia.
Manufacturers of automated analyzers and published literature often cite that blood specimens, kept at either room temperature or at 4 [degrees] C (refrigerated) for up to 24 hours, generally yield reliable results for complete blood cell count (CBC) and automated differential leukocyte count (differential).
Stored blood smears from 70 psittacine bird cases seen at the Louisiana State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital (Baton Rouge, LA, USA) were retrieved along with the accompanying complete blood cell count (CBC) reports.
Complete blood cell count revealed the following values: white blood cell count, 3.5 x [10.sup.9]/L (reference range, 3.2-9.8 x [10.sup.9]/L); hemoglobin, 83 g/L (reference range, 120-155 g/L); hematocrit, 0.26 (reference range, 0.35-0.45); and platelet count, 224 x [10.sup.9]/L (reference range, 150-450 x [10.sup.9]/L).
A complete blood cell count and plasma biochemical analyses were performed at the start of the study and within 3 hours after the last treatment.
