gondii infection both decreases red blood cell (RBC) production as evidenced by reduced numbers of circulating reticulocytes, and simultaneously increases the loss of circulating RBC.
On each occasion, 2 ml of whole blood was collected into an EDTA vacutainer for measurement of haemoglobin concentration [Hb], haematocrit (Hct), and reticulocytes (%retics) (Sysmex XT-2000i; Sysmex Corporation, Japan).

These parameters are the number of circulating reticulocytes (RET), IRF, hemoglobin content of reticulocytes, and nucleated red blood cells.
1) They have a short lifespan in the circulation and therefore reflect current megakaryopoietic activity, exactly comparable with reticulocytes and erythropoiesis.
Reticulocytes are the immature red cells and contain the remnants of ribosomes and ribonucleic acids (RNA).
