Results indicated higher phagocytic index of treated groups (at dose rate of 100 and 200 mg/kg body weight), which may be due to reticuloendothelial
system stimulation (Neha and Mishra, 2011; Hajra et al.
Tf incorporates iron coming from two major sources: dietary iron (both inorganic and heme iron) absorbed in the duodenum to compensate for daily iron loss and iron derived from destruction of old and effete erythrocytes by reticuloendothelial
cells in the spleen and liver (Figure 3).
Splenectomy can also serve as a therapeutic option by removing the major reticuloendothelial
The questions address such areas as anesthesia/analgesia, cardiovascular, first aid and transport, fluids and electrolytes, hematology, neurology, ophthalmology, parasites, polysystemic disease, shock/sepsis, reproduction, the reticuloendothelial
system, trauma, and urinary.
The resultant protamine-heparin complex is rapidly cleared by the reticuloendothelial
Spleen is the main reticuloendothelial
system where anti- platelet antibodies are produced and autoantibody- platelet complex is destroyed.
8) In addition, IL-1 and TNF-[alpha] induce ferritin transcription, which increases iron storage in the reticuloendothelial
Leprosy is a systemic disease involving skin, nerves and the reticuloendothelial
system, the liver being the commonest internal organ affected.
It also should not be forgotten that in HH, serum iron levels and the transferrin saturation rate can be within normal limits in cases with an excessive accumulation of iron in reticuloendothelial
system organs and higher ferritin levels.
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by destruction of circulating antibody bound platelets by reticuloendothelial
system, particularly in the spleen9.
As in tuberculosis, macrophages assist in dissemination of the organism via lymphatics and the blood to the adjacent lymph nodes and throughout the reticuloendothelial
system (liver, spleen, lymph nodes, adrenal glands, and bone marrow).
