platelet count;

- CLINICAL CHEMISTRY: serum creatinine, BUN, glucose, AST(GOT), ALT(GPT), albumin,

total bilirubin, total protein, and alkaline phosphatase;

- HIV antibody and hepatitis B surface antigen screens;

•*URINALYSIS: by dipstick, microscopic examination if dipstick positive; and.

- URINE DRUG SCREEN: ethyl alcohol, amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines,

cannabinoids, cocaine metabolites, opiates and phencyclidine.
