    enzyme release from dead cells.
  2. Which of the following antigens has the highest frequency in caucasians?
  3. An APTT is performed on a patient and the result is 50 seconds (reference range27-37). The instrument flags the result because of a delta check failure.

  7. An initial and repeat ELISA test for antibodies to HIV-1 are both positive. A
    Western blot shows a single band at gp160.The patient shows no clinical signs
    of HIV infection and the patient's TH cell count is normal. Based upon these
    results, which conclusion is correct?
    The results are inconclusive
  8. Which of the statements below
    regarding the diagnosis of pancreatitis is correct?

    Factor IX deficient plasma
  14. What is the purpose of the complement split products C3a and C5a?
    • to cause increased vascular permeability, contraction of smooth muscle, and the
    • release of histamine from basophils
  15. When performing platelet aggregation studies, which set of platelet aggregation
    results would most likely be associated with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia?
    • normal platelet aggregation with ristocetin; decreased aggregation with collagen, ADP,
    • and epinephrine

    3-year-old male was admitted to the hospital with scattered petechiae and

    results are:
    PT: 11 sec. (10-13) platelet count: 18,000/uL (150-450 x 103/uL)

    kidney, and the kidney was removed. What immune elements might be found in the
    rejected organ?
    Tcells and macrophages

    sec. (reference range 21-35 sec.).   What is the most appropriate interpretation of these results?
    The APTT is considered uncorrected

    the admission work showed a PT of 65 seconds with an INR of 4.5. What is the
