At the end of the trial, immune response of tilapia measured in terms of hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (Ht), white blood cells (WBC), red blood cells (RBC), mean corpuscular
volume (MCV), mean corpuscular
hemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular
hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) by following the standard protocols.
Erythrocyte Parameters Assay: Red blood cell (RBC) counts, haemoglobin content (HGB), hematocrit (HCT), mean corpuscular
volume (MCV), mean corpuscular
hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular
hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and distribution frequency of red blood cell (RDWC) were determined using rat mode of veterinary blood cell counter (Abocus Junior Vet-5, Austria) in whole blood.
In the febrile seizures group the mean hemoglobin was 9.36 +- 1.29 gm/dL, the mean, mean corpuscular
volume was 67.19 +- 6.39 fL, mean MCHC was 29.37 +- 2.73 and mean ferritin levels were 8.60 +- 4.75 ng/dL.

Hematologic differences between African-Americans and whites: The roles of iron deficiency and alpha-thalassemia on hemoglobin levels and mean corpuscular
Blood sample of 5mL was collected from each participant to analyze white blood cells (WBC); total leukocytes counts (TLC); red blood cells (RBC); mean corpuscular
value (MCV); mean corpuscular
hemoglobin (MCH); mean corpuscular
hemoglobin concentration (MCHC); hemoglobin (HB) and hematocrit (HCT).
Decreases in red blood cell counts, hemoglobin concentrations, and packed cell volumes, and increased mean corpuscular
hemoglobin concentrations were observed when animals were under general anesthesia.
The Wilcoxon test was used for the analysis of dependent variables not normally distributed (heart rate, Sp[O.sub.2], body temperature, respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, Hb, mean corpuscular
volume [MCV], mean corpuscular
Hb [MCH], and mean corpuscular
Hb concentration [MCHC]).
Inclusion criteria were, no intake of hematinics in past 1 month and the absence of anemia or iron deficiency with, Hb >13g/dl for males and Hb >12 g/dl for females, and mean corpuscular
volume (MCV) >80 fl.
Haemoglobin (Hb), Mean Corpuscular
Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC), Mean Corpuscular
Haemoglobin (MCH) and Mean Corpuscular
volume (MCV) were calculated according to the formulae described by Dienye et al.
Laboratory results are as follows: hemoglobin (Hgb) 7 g/dl, hematocrit 23%, mean corpuscular
volume (MCV) 73 fl/red cell, mean corpuscular
hemoglobin (MCH) 25 pictograms/cell, mean corpuscular
hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) 30 g/dl, increased total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) 550 mcg/dl, low serum iron 50 mcg/dl, and low serum ferritin 15 ng/ml.
A complete blood picture revealed the followings: erythrocyte, 0.28 x 1012/L; hemoglobin, 73 g/L; mean corpuscular
volume, 114.3 fl; mean corpuscular
hemoglobin, 260.7 pg; mean corpuscular
hemoglobin concentration, 2,281 g/L; reticulocytes, 6.2%; leukocyte, 7.14 x 109/L; neutrophil, 5.06 x 109/L; lymphocyte, 1.51 x 109/L; and platelets, 798 x 109/L.
However, there was a statistically significant decrease in MCV (mean corpuscular
volume) and RDW (red cell distribution width) and increase in MCHC (mean corpuscular
hemoglobin concentration) in PTS samples as compared to hand delivered samples (Table 1).
volume, red blood cell distribution width, mean corpuscular
hemoglobin content, unsaturated iron-binding capacity, and total iron-binding capacity were significantly higher in HG compared to CG, while red blood cell count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and serum iron levels were significantly lower.
