Lymphocyte Count Correlated to Comorbid Diabetes and COVID-19

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that erupted in China since December 2019 and has gradually spread throughout the world. At present, it has caused tens of thousands of deaths, and the efficacy of certain antiviral drugs is still under review. More...

Clonal Hematopoiesis Prevalence Determined in Healthy Donors

Clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) is defined as the presence of a clone at more than 2% of variant allele frequency (VAF) in peripheral blood (PB) of individuals with no evidence of hematologic disease. More...

Hodgkin Lymphoma Therapy Response Linked to T-Cell Receptor Repertoire

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a type of lymphoma in which cancer originates from a specific type of white blood cells called lymphocytes. Symptoms may include fever, night sweats, and weight loss. Often there will be non-painful enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, under the arm, or in the groin. More...

Microfluidic Device Explores Ovarian Cancer Interactions

In many cancers, platelet interactions with circulating tumor cells and their role in metastasis have been studied extensively. In ovarian cancer, platelet extravasation into the tumor and resulting metastasis is thought to be regulated mostly by the vascular endothelium. More...

Biomarkers Evaluated for Severity of Diabetic Kidney Disease

Type 2 diabetic mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder with multiple complications, including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetic kidney disease (DKD) as well as cardiovascular diseases. T2DM is related to an exacerbated systematic inflammation. More...

The TriVersa NanoMate LESA uses chip-based electrospray ionization technology that combines the benefits of liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry, chip-based infusion, fraction collection, and direct surface analysis into one integrated ion source platform (Photo courtesy of Advion BioSciences).

Nanoparticle System Captures Heart-Disease Biomarker From Blood

Physicians currently use an antibody-based test called enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to help diagnose heart attacks based on elevated levels of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in the patient's blood sample. While the ELISA test is sensitive, patients can have high levels of cTnI in the blood without having heart disease, which can lead to expensive and unnecessary treatments for patients. More...

Blood Bank NAT-Based Assay Prevents Transfusion-Transmitted Malaria

Blood transfusion is an essential component of health care, which saves millions of lives across the world. The screening of blood donors for transfusion-transmissible agents is crucial in reducing risks of transfusion of infected units. More...
