This study was aimed to identify hematological and microbiological profile of culture-proven neonatal sepsis in Indonesian tertiary neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).MATERIALS AND METHODS: Hospital based cross-sectional study was conducted in all inborn neonates that were suspected sepsis neonatal over a period of six months from April to September 2019. Complete blood count, c-reactive protein (CRP) and blood culture were examined before antibiotic administration. Statistical analysis were calculated based on Chi-Square's Test and Mann-Whitney U test and p

by James W. Swann, Sarah Tayler, Harriet Hall, Richard Sparrow, Barbara J. Skelly, Barbara Glanemann ObjectivesTo determine whether veterinarians in primary care practices (PCPs) and board-certified clinicians (BCCs) approach treatment of dogs with immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia (IMHA) similarly, and whether practitioners with more experience treat similarly to those with less experience. We hypothesised those in PCPs would show more variation in their approach to similar cases than BCCs. MethodsA cross-sectional study was conducted by distributing a questionnaire to BCCs and veterinarians in PCPs. The questionnaire in...

Background: Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) is major used as an indicator for the differential diagnosis of anemia. Macrocytic anemia in decompensated cirrhosis is common. However, the relationship between macrocytic anemia and decompensated hepatitis B virus (HBV) associated cirrhosis has not been fully addressed.Methods: In this cross-sectional study, a total of 457 patients diagnosed decompensated HBV associated cirrhosis who met all inclusion criteria from 2011 to 2018 were analyzed. Association between macrocytic anemia and the liver damaged (Model for End Stage Liver Disease (MELD) score) were examined using multiple l...

Six hemoglobin isoforms were identified in the peripheral blood of male Wistar rats by PAAG electrophoresis. Erythrocytes can be separated into 6 fractions by fractional centrifugation; the fractions differ by the content of reticulocytes and cells with fetal hemoglobin. Cells in each fraction contain one light and one heavy hemoglobin isoforms, and their combination is specific to each fraction. Changes in the hemoglobin isoforms in the whole blood in case of blood loss can be associated with changes in physical and chemical properties of circulating erythrocytes, as well as with the formation of various cell populations ...

Acta Haematol. 2021 Sep 17:1-4. doi: 10.1159/000519028. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSickle cell disease is characterized by vaso-occlusive phenomena and haemolytic anaemia. There is a significant concern that the overlap of COVID-19 lung disease with acute chest syndrome that occurs in sickle cell patients may result in serious complications. Case reports of sickle cell patients with COVID-19 have been published. Here, we present a case series of COVID-19 infection in sickle cell patients in a developing country (Brazil). Only 10 patients tested positive so far for SARS-CoV-2 of 600 patients followed at our institution, ...

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate ferumoxytol-enhanced vascular suppression for visualizing branch nerves of the brachial plexus in magnetic resonance (MR) neurography.Materials and methodsSignal simulations were performed to determine ferumoxytol ’s effect on nerve-, fat-, and blood-to-muscle contrast and to optimize pulse sequence parameters. Prospective, in vivo assessment included 10 subjects with chronic anemia who underwent a total of 19 (9 bilateral) pre- and post-infusion brachial plexus exams using three-dimensional (3D), T2-weighted short-tau inversion recovery (T2-STIR) sequences at 3.0  T. Two musculoskel...
