  • flow cytometry
  • To determine if blunting of apoptotic response (with two or more consecutive apoptotic fractions) following treatment using annexin V staining of peripheral blood CD5+ and CD19+ lymphocytes by flow cytometry is predictive of outcome (i.e. lack of clinical response). (knowcancer.com)
  • The combination of the microscopic examination of the peripheral blood and analysis of the lymphocytes by flow cytometry to confirm clonality and marker molecule expression is needed to establish the diagnosis of CLL. (wikipedia.org)
  • Apheresis
  • By giving a growth factor, such as Leukine, before apheresis, the number of progenitor cells in peripheral blood can be enhanced and the number of progenitor cells in peripheral blood can be enhanced and the number of apheresis procedures can be decreased. (centerwatch.com)
  • Apheresis is less invasive than bone marrow harvesting and requires no anesthesia. (centerwatch.com)
  • Autologous HSCT requires the extraction (apheresis) of haematopoietic stem cells (HSC) from the patient and storage of the harvested cells in a freezer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Blood, which requires extraction through apheresis, wherein blood is drawn from the donor (similar to a blood donation), and passed through a machine that extracts the stem cells and returns other portions of the blood to the donor. (wikipedia.org)
