It is well known that Ferritin and Transf.sat are parameters that are influenced by various factors such as inflammation, iron overload, varying serum iron levels, etc. Therefore, better parameters are needed and hypochromic red cells are one of the most promising concerning correct titration of parenteral iron. Reticulocyte Hb content (CHr) decreases singnificantly if functional […]
Amplification of the DNA polymerase I gene of Treponema pallidum from whole blood of persons with syphilis.
The article confirms by means of the sensitive PCR technique that Treponema pallidum may be found in blood during the whole course of syphilis infection. – V. Kretschmer.
Prediction of fetal anemia with Doppler measurement of the middle cerebral artery peak systolic velocity in pregnancies complicated by maternal blood group alloimmunization or parvovirus B19 infection.
Measurement of middle artery peak systolic velocity by two-dimensional and Doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive method to safely predict low fetal hemoglobin values (100% sensitivitiy and specifity). – V. Kretschmer.
