Blood Test Improves Treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukemia

A simple blood test has been developed that is capable of detecting trace levels of leukemia cells remaining after intensive chemotherapy. The test can predict which patients with acute myeloid leukemia are at risk of their cancer returning in the future, helping to guide doctors on what further treatment is needed.   More...

Fungal Infection Identified by Pathogen Detection Array Technology

Patients who are undergoing treatment for diseases such as cancer often face the added challenge of a compromised immune system, which can be challenging to both of their condition and the drugs used to treat it, leaving them vulnerable to various opportunistic infections.  More...

Nonradioactive Serotonin Release Assay Compared to Gold Standard

The serotonin release assay is considered the gold standard laboratory test for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and the classical SRA method uses platelets loaded with radiolabeled serotonin to evaluate platelet activation by HIT immune complexes.  More...

Early and Accurate Prediction of Leukemia Made Possible

Acute myeloid leukemia is the most common type of leukemia in adults and recent studies demonstrate that early and accurate prediction of this aggressive cancer is possible how it will develop in individuals.  More...

Key Genes Identified for Leukemia Development

Human leukemia is characterized by the prevalence of recurrent chromosomal translocations, resulting in the generation of chimeric fusion proteins with aberrant oncogenic activities.   More...

Microfluidic Device Automatically Monitors Whole Blood Hemostasis

An assay has been devised for testing blood's clotting tendency, also known as hemostasis, which could one day prove lifesaving in a variety of clinical situations in which a patient's health is jeopardized by abnormal blood coagulation and platelet function.  More...

Protein Patterning: Novel Tool for Studying Sepsis

In a new approach using quantitative targeted proteomics, researchers have for the first time developed a way to use mass-spectrometry to measure hundreds of organ proteins in a single blood sample. The resulting protein patterns can help determine sepsis severity, which organs have been damaged, and may lead to faster diagnostics.  More...
