A complete blood cell count is an easy available screening method to know the effect of benzene on haematopoietic system. The present aim of the study is to evaluate the complete blood cell count, Hb concentration among petrol pump workers in and around Nandyal, so that necessary preventive measures can be taken to avoid the effect of benzene toxicity.
The present study concludes that long term exposure to petrol fumes has deleterious effects on human haematopoietic system leading to bone marrow depression.
However, the purpose of this project is multifaceted; as from the viewpoint of modern biological physics the inherent motility of the cellular constituents of the bone marrow places the haematopoietic system under the remit of a rapidly advancing area of soft-condensed matter physics known as 'Active Matter'; which broadly speaking, aims to extend the paradigm of condensed matter physics to include living systems.
These are used for diseases of the immune and haematopoietic systems. Biotest also develops monoclonal antibodies in the indications of cancer of plasma cells and systemic lupus erythematosus, which are produced by recombinant technologies.
