The main laboratory findings included a mild macrocytic hyperchromic anemia, hypoglobulinemia, decreased bile acids, and increased alkaline phosphatase.
A small, solitary, hard nodule subsequently developed and was later accompanied by similar satellite lesions that tended to become confluent and form harder nodules, sometimes hyperchromic with flat and shiny surfaces (Figure 1, panel A).
Many of the symptoms and the altered brain structure observed in the treated SJL/J mice were similar to the symptoms exhibited by children with an ASD diagnosis, including: growth delay: reduced locomotion: exaggerated response to novelty; and, for the brain structure, densely packed, hyperchromic hippocampal neurons with altered glutamate receptors and transporters.
The growth was noted to be forming cords and islets within the desmoplastic stroma, with hyperchromic, large nuclei and prominent nucleoli.
This is presumably due to the electron delocalization of the chromophoric group resulted from grafting benzophenone chromophoric group to the main polymer chains, and so the extended chromophoric conjugation contributed to bathochromic and hyperchromic shifts in UV-VIS absorption [14].
Self-association of pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid in aqueous solution as determined from ultraviolet hypochromic and hyperchromic effects.
Hyperchromic cells, present in hereditary spherocytosis, are those with an abnormally high concentration of Hgb.
The prominent sign of folacin deficiency is anemia that is indistinguishable from that of vitamin [B.sub.12] deficiency--described as macrocytic (large cells), hyperchromic (high amount of red pigment) anemia.
If color is increased, the cell is described as hyperchromic. Hyperchromicity is very rare because cells can only hold a finite amount of hemoglobin (Kee, 1994).
Spectral subtleties such as hyperchromic effect, hypsochromic red shift and blue shift may predict the behavior of the drug towards ds.DNA [18, 19, 21].
The band assigned to [alpha], [beta]-unsaturated system centered at 315 nm has an important hyperchromic effect, evidencing the increase of [pi]-conjugation in 1.
This study revealed that majority of patients (52%) was associated with microcytic hypochromic followed by normocytic normochromic (32%) and macrocytic hyperchromic (16%), which reported nutritional anaemia as the major cause for anaemia in detailed study.
