Contents Hemopoiesis, blood cell types, and bone marrow examination -- Erythrocytes, anemias, and polycythemia -- Additional erythrocytic measurements -- Iron, associated proteins, and vitamins -- Leukocytes -- Immunotoxicology -- Hemostasis -- Preanalytical variables -- Analytical variables and biosafety -- Data processing and interpretation
Summary Hematology data from in vivo toxicology studies is one of the most predictive measures for human risk, as the same measurements made in pre-clinical toxicology studies can be made in early clinical trials. This book addresses pre-analytical and analytical variables, as these tend to be more difficult to control in animal studies
