SARS changes the composition of human blood

SARS changes the composition of human bloodGroup Hong Kong scientists have published the results of observation of patients undergoing atypical pneumonia, and was first identified and summarized the changes that can be detected with the disease in the General blood analysis, biochemical analysis and coagulogram v analysis, describing the state of the blood coagulation system. They compiled data on 64 men and 93 women who were treated at the Hospital Prince of Wales in Hong Kong. For the study were selected from patients with SARS who have not previously diagnosed with any diseases of the blood. Blood tests were performed daily until three days after the fever. Moreover, we have analyzed the results of the autopsies. It turned out that the most typical changes include lymphopenia (reduction in the number of lymphocytes), which was observed in 98 percent of patients, neutrophilia (increased neutrophils) v at 82 percent, thrombocytopenia (decrease in platelets) v at 55 percent, followed by thrombocytosis (49 percent) increase in APTT (activated partial thromboplastin time) is 63 percent. In 61 percent of patients also noted a decrease in hemoglobin level of more than 20 grams per liter of the base, and 2.5 percent developed disseminated intravascular coagulation. From the very beginning of the disease has decreased CD4 and CD8 T-lymphocytes. Their low level, and increased lactate dehydrogenase activity were classified as adverse prognostic features.
