Blood count going down down down

My last count was 2500. Normal range is 4000 to 10000. I can't really recall if I rode prior to the last blood test, but chances are good that I did at least a day or two prior. I've fluctuated over the past few months, with the count getting as high as 3600, I think.

Research Study

Hi Nightingale,

It's nice to hear from someone who's directly involved in the study I was wondering how many participants are there and if they are planning on getting more later. Also, how far from Newark do they take the participants?
