Stem Cell-Based Test Predicts Leukemia Patients' Response to Therapy

A 17-gene signature derived from leukemia stem cells has been developed that can predict at diagnosis if patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) will respond to standard treatment. More...

Increased Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration Scrutinized for Accuracy

In daily practice in hematology laboratories, spurious increased mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) induces an analytical alarm and needs prompt corrective action to ensure delivery of the right results to the clinicians. More...

Novel Device May Provide Rapid POC Assessment of Clot Ability

Researchers have developed a sensor that, on initial testing, accurately assessed blood-clotting ability 95 times faster than current methods, which uses only a single drop of blood. The device also provided more information than existing approaches. More...

Genetic Testing Identifies High-Risk Subtype of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is less common in adults than in children, but adults are far less likely to survive. Adults make up about 40% of the estimated 6,590 new cases of ALL identified annually in the USA. More...

Lab Tests Discriminate Bacterial from Nonbacterial COPD Exacerbations

The discrimination of bacterial from nonbacterial acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) is difficult, causing antibiotics overuse and bacterial resistance. Sputum cultures are of limited use because results take time. More...

Plasma NT-ProBNP Levels Predict Severity of Enterovirus-71 Infection

Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) is caused by a variety of human enteroviruses, mainly by enterovirus 71 (EV71) and coxsackievirus A16 (CA16), and is characterized by fever and vesicular exanthema on the hands, feet, and mouth. More...

Cryopreservation Improves Longer-Lasting Blood Supply

The development of highly efficient methods to cryopreserve cells, tissues, and organs is becoming exceedingly important to meet the increasing demands of emerging cellular therapies. Cryopreservation of blood and stem cells has had tremendous impact on regenerative and transfusion medicine. More...
