3rd stage of cell normoblast
4th stage of cell reticulocyte
5th stage of cell erythrocytes
Thalassemia an inherited defect in the ability to produce hemoglobin, usually seen in persons of Mediterranean background
Pernicious anemia lack of mature erythrocytes caused by inability to absorb vitamin B12 into the body
Iron deficiency anemia deficiency in erythrocytes or hemoglobin caused by lack of iron
Hemolytic anemia reduction in red blood cells due to excessive destruction

Can you transfuse blood from an O type donor into a B type recipient Why/why not Yes Antibodies are diluted in the recipients blood
Can you transfuse blood from an AB type donor into a B type recipient Why/why not No Anti-A antibodies cause agglutination
When symptoms return from a disease where they had been gone is called relapse
