Answer

General laboratory studies should include complete blood cell (CBC) count with differentials; a platelet count; serum levels of electrolytes, uric acid, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and creatinine; and liver function tests. All patients should also be checked for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B (HBV) infection.
