Inherited Genetic Variants Increase Risk of Hodgkin Lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a type of lymphoma, in which cancer originates from a specific type of white blood cell called lymphocytes, where multinucleated Reed–Sternberg cells (RS cells) are present in the patient's lymph nodes. Symptoms may include fever, night sweats, and weight loss. Often, nonpainful enlarged lymph nodes occur in the neck, under the arm, or in the groin. More...

D-Dimer and Thrombosis Risk in Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

D-dimer is a marker of fibrinolysis harkening the presence of or risk for thrombosis, and it has been found to be a powerful predictor of thrombosis in solid cancers and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). More...

NGS Blood Test Qualitatively Detects Thalassemia Mutations

A new detection kit based on the combinatorial probe-anchor synthesis sequencing method, a next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, can qualitatively detect α-thalassemia and β thalassemia mutations. More...

Flow Cytometry Of Reactive T-Cells Differentiates Lymphoproliferative Diseases

Classic Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) is an unusual form of lymphoma characterized by a small number of neoplastic Hodgkin and Reed–Sternberg (HRS) cells in an extensive inflammatory background and about 90% of all Hodgkin lymphomas are this type. More...

Bleeding Phenotype Defined in Nonsevere Hemophiliacs

Persons with hemophilia have an increased bleeding tendency in which those with mild hemophilia mainly experience bleeding events provoked by trauma or surgery. In contrast, persons with severe hemophilia, especially when not treated on prophylaxis, experience frequent spontaneous bleeding events. More...

AI Holography System Accurately Checks Quality of Red Blood Cells

Researchers have developed an AI holography system that automatically extracts important information and inspects the quality of red blood cells. The new system is expected to become a key technology for enabling cleaner and healthier red blood cell injections to patients through accurate quality inspection of red blood cells stored for a certain period of time for blood transfusion.

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Genomic Study Reveals New Subtypes

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. It affects the white blood cells called lymphocytes. It tends to develop very slowly. It is more common in older people and is rare in people younger than 40. More...
