In brief: Breakdown

Hemolysis is a breakdown in the redblood cells freeing hemoglobin to present as free serum hemoglobin.
Such a product may secondarily affect the kidney causing impained function and rise in creatinine. FDA will cancel a trial where a drug such as a cancer mAb induces hemolysis.

In brief: Loss of cells

Hemolysis, by definition is lysis, breakdown, rupture of red blood cells.
Hemolysis causes loss of hemoglobin. Depending on the rate of hemolysis red cell count may go down.
