Effect of radio frequency electromagnetic field from mobile phones ’ base station antennas on maturation of rat erythrocytes

AbstractThe biological effects of radiation emitted by mobile telephone base station antennas are still controversial. The present study was designed to evaluate the effects of radio frequency electromagnetic field frequency range of 1200 –1400 MHz, from a mobile phone base station on erythropoietic cells in the rat bone marrow. Out of a total of 48 rats, 24 were exposed for 2 h each day for 7, 14, 30, and 60 days to electromagnetic radiation at specific absorption rate (SAR) levels 1.165 W/kg. Electromagnetic field–exposed r ats were compared with sham-exposed control rats. The animals of the sham-exposed control group and each radio frequency electromagnetic field–exposed group were killed on the final day of exposure. Bone marrow smears were examined. In comparison with the sham-exposed animals, the findings reveale d significantly increased polychromatic erythrocytes (P

However, ROSE by a cytopathologist or cytotechnologist is not always available during the procedure. The purposes of this study were to verify that a pulmonologist, after receiving training in cytology, could accurately assess an EBUS-TBB specim...

METHODS: In patients with any stage of newly diagnosed syphilis swabs were performed from urethra, rectum, pharynx and cervix according to the gender and type of sexual intercourse. From these smears standard val...

This article uses a case-based approach, complemented with diagnostic algorithms and images, to highlight hematologic changes of pathologic relevance in horses, namely, marked erythrocytosis, anemia or leukocytosis, inflammatory leukograms, lymphocytosis in adult horses, thrombocytopenia, and pancytopenia. These hematologic abnormalities occur with certain diseases and their identification can help clinicians narrow to down differential diagnostic lists. This article highlights the importance of blood smear examination, particularly, but not only, when numerical red flags are identified on automated blood counts.

AbstractCervical cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for women in the Dominican Republic. Pap smear screening in the Dominican Republic has not achieved adequate reduction in cervical cancer mortality. The purpose of this study was to examine Dominican provider practices for cervical cancer screening and the use of national or international screening guidelines. We surveyed 101 gynecology specialists, 50 non-specialists, and 51 obstetrics-gynecology residents in the Santo Domingo and Monte Plata provinces of the Dominican Republic regarding their cervical cancer screening practices and use of guidelines.

Besides a prompt diagnosis and an early treatment initiation, respiratory isolation of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) patients is a key element to reduce transmission of the infection and its spread into the community.1,2 Pulmonary TB with high-bacillary loads poses a high risk of transmission. Therefore, putting in isolation all patients with newly diagnosed pulmonary TB with smear-positive sputum is recommended.1,2 Such measures can be avoided or discontinued when two to three serial smear-negative sputum samples are available.
