New Blood Test Predicts Sepsis in Burn Patients

A new study suggests that measuring three biomarkers of neutrophil function could help determine which burn victims are likely to develop sepsis during their treatment. More...

Blood Coagulation Detector Helps Monitor Stroke Risk

An analyzer recently developed to measure blood coagulability has the sensitivity to detect hypercoagulability associated with stroke risk in those without atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation (AF) causes an irregular and sometimes fast heart rate, and is a common risk factor for stroke. More...

Test Developed to Predict Sepsis in Burns Patients

The diagnosis of sepsis represents a major clinical challenge as many classical diagnostic biomarkers are masked by the ongoing systemic inflammatory response syndrome following major burn injury. More...

Faulty Genetic Instructions Drive Deadly Leukemia in Adults

Acute myeloid leukemia is one of the most common acute leukemia or blood cancer types in adults, and involves over-production of immature blood cells that then crowd out normal, healthy cells. More...

Flow Cytometric Assay Evaluated for Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia

Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is an immune-mediated thrombocytopenia associated with heparin therapy and the diagnosis consists of a combination of pretest probability and laboratory testing. More...

Novel Approach Could Make Bone Marrow Transplants Safer

Treatment has been developed for bone marrow, via blood stem cell, transplantation safer and, as a result, more widely available to the millions of people living with blood disorders like sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). More...

Peripheral Blood Eosinophilia Correlates with Hyperplastic Nasal Polyp Growth

A reliable way to track the course of nasal polyps in chronic sinus disease, maybe linked to rising levels of immune system white blood cells, called eosinophils, with regrowth of polyps removed by surgery. More...
