51 Possible Causes for Osmotic Fragility of Red Blood Cells

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Testing Location Flow Cytometry Testing Frequency Mondays Alternate Name(s) Erythrocyte Fragility, Osmotic Fragility - Erythrocyte, Red Blood Cell Osmotic Fragility Reference[calgarylabservices.com] The samples were examined by flow-cytometric osmotic fragility test and the percentage of residual red blood cells was used to determine HS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] blood cell, resulting in an osmotically fragile and characteristically spherical red blood cell.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anemia

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    Circulation 104 : 79 – 84 5 1989 Hyperglycemia can cause membrane lipid peroxidation and osmotic fragility in human red blood cells.[doi.org] Biophys J 84 : 356A (Abstract) 4 2001 Genetic determination of p47 phox -dependent superoxide anion production in murine vascular smooth muscle cells.[doi.org]

  • Varicose Veins

    These cells were more sensitive to hemolysis than red blood cells from the peripheral blood vein.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Changes in the plasma membrane of the erythrocytes from varicose vein were also confirmed by measuring osmotic fragility.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acquired Spherocytosis

    One blood test used to diagnose HS is called osmotic fragility. The patient’s red blood cells are placed in different concentrations of salt water (saline) for 24 hours.[ihtc.org] However, they have a high osmotic fragility—when placed into water, they are more likely to burst than normal red blood cells.[en.wikipedia.org] Interpret the osmotic fragility test and distinguish between normal and HS red blood cells using this assay.[hematology.org]

  • Chorea

    We found a marked increase in the osmotic fragility of red blood cells in the ChAc mutant mice backcrossed to 129S6/Sv and FVB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acquired Hemolytic Anemia

    Interpret the osmotic fragility test and distinguish between normal and HS red blood cells using this assay.[hematology.org] In PNH, the red blood cells are missing certain proteins. The test for PNH can detect red blood cells that are missing these proteins. Osmotic fragility test.[theoncologyinstitute.com] In PNH, the red blood cells are missing certain proteins. The test for PNH looks for red blood cells that are missing these proteins. Osmotic fragility test.[daviddarling.info]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    It is likely that nifedipine inhibiting cytoplasmic calcium accumulation could restore some red blood cell membrane properties.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the present study we were able to demonstrate that erythrocyte deformability and two other related variables such as membrane fluidity and osmotic fragility improve significantly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Erythrocyte Membrane Abnormality

    Erythrocyte osmotic fragility [ edit ] Osmotic fragility (OF) refers to the degree or proportion of hemolysis that occurs when a sample of red blood cells are subjected to[en.wikipedia.org] blood cells, is shown on the horizontal axis.[oncohemakey.com] However, they have a high osmotic fragility–when placed into water, they are more likely to burst than normal red blood cells.[theartofmed.wordpress.com]

  • Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia Type 2

    A patient with multiorgan involvement of non-iatrogenic hemochromatosis secondary to congenital dyserythropoietic anemia (CDA) type 2 is described. The clinical manifestations of hemochromatosis preceded the diagnosis of CDA. CDA should be included among the hematological disorders associated with iron overload. Iron[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
