Amit Sengupta, MBBS, MD, PhD

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: April 23, 2020

In some patients, a significant fall in the viscosity, hematocrit and plasma protein level was observed. We noted no post-treatment survival benefit in them. The fall in viscosity was possibly linked to lowering of immunological factors, anti-inflammatory response, reduction in cancer cell density and also serum proteins and hematocrit. We need to conduct well designed studies in...
