Cd55 And Cd59 Expression
What's the normal range in percentage for cd3, cd4, cd8, cd5, cd19 and cd20 antigens in peripheral blood for female adults?
Why do you ask?: You are of course talking about percentages of either all white blood cells or of lymphocytes. This question does not arise in general clinical medicine, and if someone has offered this to you without a strong suspicion of immunodeficiency or leukemia, you need to insist on an explanation. And in such workups, the search is either for a mutant clone or a grave deficiency; percentages are moot. ...Read more

Horses, not zebras: You don't have "immune dysfunction." you have a mild abnormality of a lab test that shouldn't have been drawn in the first place. Focus on common causes of fatigue, not rare ones. ...Read more

In some cases but...: Noted lyme specialist raphael stricker discovered that many lyme patients have a low cd57 count (this is a subset of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells) and that the level often increases as patents improve. However, not all lyme patients have low cd57 counts. A low cd57 may be supportive of a lyme diagnosis but a high level in no way rules it out. See my comment for more info:. ...Read more
How do dna, mutation, genotype, phenotype, and natural selection interconnect to cause evolution?
Modern synthesis: It's as well-established as anything in science, but would take more than 400 characters to explain. You owe it to yourself, as an educated person who must participate in community decision making, to understand it. There are a huge number of good books on the subject. Best wishes. ...Read more
No, but...: There are carcinomas that produce carbohydrates that can bind to type o blood cells and mimic b, but i've not heard of a lymphoma doing that. However, there are a few "weak b" blood groups that have typed as o's in the past. I'll bet this is you. Your blood bank knows how to deal with these. Best wishes. ...Read more
The lymphoid population consists of polyclonal b cells cd19,cd20,cd45 pos, cd5, cd10 neg w/o light chain. What does this mean on flow cytometry?
This is normal: We would worry if you had Monoclonal Lymphocyte excess, a polyclonal pattern is normal. But why did you have the Flow cytometry done in the first place? Give us more detailed history if you need our guidance. ...Read more
0.6 cd4/cd8 ratio, 40% of T-cells are cd4, HIV/HTLV negative, no reason found. Is this idiopathic cd4 lymphocytopenia? Even if cd4 are 40% no lower?
LEUKOCYTOSIS: LEUKOCYTOSIS = elevated WBC. These labs associated with infection/leukemia /lymphoma and demand prompt evaluation You need an Exam/Labs/UAC&S and CXR to start. Also ct scan of chest/abd/pelvis .If no source is found then a hematology consult with bone marrow biopsy may be warranted. If BMB IS NEGATIVE IT MAY BE CLASSIFIED IDIOPATHIC AND BE CLOSELY MONITORED. ...Read more

It depends: Cd markers tell us what subsets of lymphocytes we have in our blood. Cd3 is found on the surface of all t cells. T cells are involved in directing other immune cells and in killing other cells. Cd8 cells are a subset of cd3 cells, and are commonly called cytotoxic t cells. They can go up in a viral infection, leukemia, etc. You need to know your other subsets, and if any other markers are abnormal. ...Read more
