Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9936572A1] The invention relates to a method for the treatment of a body fluid sample containing eosinophils, so as to derive an RNA therefrom that is suitable for analysis especially RT-PCR. The method according to the invention is characterised in that eosinophils are removed from said sample before the RNA is subjected to analysis. This method prevents degradation of RNA by ribonuclease derived from eosinophils.
