Corrected reticulocyte count
= (reticulocyte% x patient's HCT)/normal HCT.
And, in spite of anemia, the reticulocyte count
did not respond to the stimuli; it was very low during this treatment in this case (Figure 4).
Absolute reticulocyte count
= Reticulocyte count
(%) x RBC count.
Lower vitamin D levels were associated with lower hemoglobin and hematocrit but with higher reticulocyte counts
, AST, LDH, and total and indirect serum bilirubin levels.
, serum iron levels, total iron binding capacity (TIBC), serum ferritin, vitamin B 12 levels, RBC folate levels were recorded.
Secondly, within one week of therapy there is no significant increase of Hb compared to baseline values whereas absolute reticulocyte count
increased significantly in the same period.
Key secondary endpoints include transfusion avoidance during the 16-week randomized controlled period, as well as week 16 changes from baseline in reticulocyte count
, lactate dehydrogenase levels and FACIT-Fatigue scale score.
A corresponding decrease in absolute reticulocyte count
and the percentage of reticulocytes, with a trend towards improved pain as measured by ASCQ-Me, was also observed at 13 weeks in Population A.
The parameters evaluated included haemoglobin, reticulocyte count
, total leucocyte count (TLC), and peripheral blood smear (PBS).
The patient's hemoglobin level rose to 10.6 g/dL and reticulocyte count
to 3% over 10 days; no blood transfusion was required.
The Bayer Diagnostics hematology analyzer used in the study reports CHr as part of the reticulocyte count
