Scientific Questions Being Studied
What is the the effect of Fy-/- genotype on WBC and ANC?
White blood cell (WBC) counts and absolute neutrophil counts (ANC) are known to vary by race/ethnicity. African American and other populations including Latinos with African ancestry and some Middle Eastern populations have lower WBC counts and lower ANC. Our goal is to identify how WBC and ANC should be interpreted among carriers of Fy -/- genotype.
- Disease Focused Research (neutropenia)
- Population Health
We will check distribution of WBC counts and ANC in different populations. Will study the association of Fy -/- genotype and WBC counts and ANC in different populations.
We hope to establish new standards to evaluate WBC counts and ANC in different populations. The results may improve the interpretation of test results of WBC counts and ANC in different populations.
