No transmissions occurred among antiretroviral therapy users with CD4 counts below 200 per microliter during 132 person-years of follow-up.
In addition, operators can vary the flow rate infinitely up to 24 microliters per minute by adjusting the stepper motor speed up to 300 rpm.
The principles behind microliter spectrophotometry are the same as for standard spectrophotometry: different light spectra are passed through a sample and the absorbance or transmission of this light provides information about the sample, such as concentration levels.
IDSA-USPHS guidelines in 2002 recommended discontinuing primary prophylaxis for PCP when antiretroviral therapy leads to immune reconstitution, defined as a CD4 count rebound to more than 200 cells per microliter for at least 3 months.
At study entry, 62 percent of patients had primary myelofibrosis; 46 percent of patients were thrombocytopenic; 32 percent of patients had baseline platelet counts less than 100,000 per microliter; and 16 percent of patients had platelet counts less than 50,000 per microliter; normal platelet counts range from 150,000 to 450,000 per microliter.
In the long-term extension study, Nplate maintained platelet counts within a range of 50,000 to 200,000 platelets per microliter in the majority of adult patients with chronic ITP with minimal decreased or increased dose adjustments for up to 277 weeks.
The MEPS system is a miniature of conventional SPE packed bed devices from milliliter to microliter bed volumes.
Because in some situations, deviations as small as one microliter can mean the difference between success and failure.
An advantage of centrifugal methods is that all separations, down to banding in microliter gradients, can be (and have been) done with the virions in suspension, a process that avoids aggregation that may occur on filter surfaces.
The risk of a bleeding event increases when platelet counts drop to less than 30,000 platelets per microliter.
