• antibodies
  • The IgG antibodies attach to a red blood cell, leaving their FC portion exposed with maximal reactivity at 37 °C (versus cold antibody induced hemolytic anemia whose antibodies only bind red blood cells at low body temperatures, typically 28-31 °C). The FC region is recognized and grabbed onto by FC receptors found on monocytes and macrophages in the spleen. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe anemia
  • The combination of poor diet and chronic loss of blood makes for particular susceptibility to severe anemia. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Laboratory findings include severe anemia, increased mean corpuscular volume (MCV, due to the presence of a large number of reticulocytes), and hyperbilirubinemia (from increased red cell destruction) that can be of the conjugated or unconjugated type. (wikipedia.org)
  • Blood Cells
  • Some types of anemia are named for the factors causing them: poor diet ( nutritional anemia ), excessive blood loss ( hemorrhagic anemia ), congenital defects of hemoglobin ( hypochromic anemia ), exposure to industrial poisons, diseases of the bone marrow ( aplastic anemia and hypoplastic anemia ), or any other disorder that upsets the balance between blood loss through bleeding or destruction of blood cells and production of blood cells.
