Significant differences related to age were also reported for the total erythrocyte count, PCV, hemoglobin, total leucocytes, band neutrophils, eosinophils and lymphocytes (higher in juveniles).
The in vivo exacerbation of this oxidative aggression to erythrocytes would reduce their ability to deform and decrease their longevity, increasing their removal rate, the bilirubin production and the ferritin circulating levels, with consequent decrease in erythrocyte counts and acceleration of erythropoiesis, which is trivially associated with increased reticulocyte count.
It maintains normal tissue oxygen extraction level reducing erythropoietin production inturn erythrocyte count (Figure 1).
Among normoglycemic patients, erythrocyte count was correlated with Hb [A.sub.1c] almost as strongly as MCV after adjustment; among prediabetic patients both erythrocyte count and MCHC showed considerable correlation with Hb [A.sub.1c] after adjustment; and among the three glycemia classes the correlation of Hb [A.sub.1c] with MCH, MCV, and erythrocyte count decreased in the order normoglycemia > prediabetes > diabetes.
Regression analysis showed a quadratic behavior with better values for, respectively, haematocrit and erythrocyte count of 0.92 and 2.39 g [L.sup.-1] of water salinity (Figs.
The results revealed that erythrocyte count, pack cell volume, hemoglobin concentration, serum total proteins, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, mean corpuscular volume, lymphocyte and monocyte was significantly reduced in fish exposed to higher levels of triazophos (0.015 and 0.20 ppm) when compared to untreated fish (Table 1).
It is also important to draw attention to the erythrocyte count in complete blood count.
An aliquot was stored and used for determination of hematocrit percentage (GOLDENFARB et al., 1971) and erythrocyte count, in Neubauer chamber, after dilution of 1:200 in a solution of sodium chloride.
Following statistical analysis we found no significant correlations between the presence/absence of enteropathy and anaemia markers (haemoglobin level, mean corpuscular volume, haematocrit, erythrocyte count, serum iron, and binding capacity of transferrin) and FOBT positivity.
In Group A, at baseline, 35% and 25% of subjects were below laboratory reference range (Figure 1) for erythrocyte count and hematocrit, respectively, whereas in Group B 75% of subjects were below reference range for erythrocyte count and hemoglobin, and 55% for hematocrit (Table II and III).
In group A and group B the average total erythrocyte count was 11.65 and 11.88 million/cubic mm respectively.
Under the impact of a single physical exercise, the increases in hemoglobin (Hb) concentration, hematocrit (Ht), and the erythrocyte count (RBC) are observed in the red blood cells system.
