Background : Recently live blood analysis was populated in korean society. So we evaluated clinical utility of Live blood analysis, as compared the Live blood analysis result of patients who have confirmed diagnosis of disease with that of controls who have no known health problems.
Methods : We carried out Live blood analysis to patients(n=30) who was entered to an admission in Yongdong severance hospital from February 2000 to March 2000 and to controls (n=30) who worked in that hospital at same time. We examined 3 abnormal finding; rouleau formation, spicule, protoplast, which were often observed in Live blood analysis.
Results : At comparison of parient group and control grup, rouleau formation was observed in 27 patients except 3 partients and it was observed in all 30 controls. Spicule was observed 2 in 9 partients except 1 patients and it was observed in all 30 controls. Protoplast was observed in 16 patients and 13 controls. There was no difference between patients and controls in observing 3 abnormal fingding.
Conclusion : We conclude that Live blood analysis may have no clinical significance.
