Red cell distribution width-coefficient of variation (RDW-CV) (14.
Researchers studied variation in red cell distribution width, finding that social factors may be influencing the biomarker.
Objective: To determine if red cell distribution width (RDW) is elevated in thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of such elevation in the diagnosis of TTP.
The criteria used were Hb [greater than or equal to]140 g/L for men and [greater than or equal to]123 g/L for women (22); normocytic, normochromic red cells; a red cell distribution width (RDW) [less than or equal to]15%; a corrected reticulocyte index (CRI) [less than or equal to]2.
9 g/dL; mean corpuscular volume (MCV): 66 fL; red cell distribution width (RDW): 20.
The specimen comes to your lab and is processed in the normal fashion -- automated CBC and indices, including the mean cell volume (MCV) and red cell distribution width (RDW).
In all subjects, various laboratory variables were obtained, including a complete blood count, red cell distribution width, C-reactive protein, alanine aminotransferase, serum creatinine, serum iron, transferrin, transferrin saturation, and ferritin.
