CD200 Expression Marks Leukemia Stem Cells in Human AML

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is organized as a hierarchy sustained by a minor population of leukemia stem cells (LSCs) with self-renewal capacity that drive disease. The LSC populations of AML exhibit phenotypic, genetic, and functional heterogeneity that contribute to therapy failure and relapse. More...

Blood Cell Mutations Underlie Severe Autoinflammatory Disease

Severe adult-onset autoinflammatory disorders often manifest with overlapping clinical features. Affected individuals may develop episodes of high, spiking fevers, a pink or salmon colored rash, joint pain, muscle pain, a sore throat and other symptoms associated with systemic inflammatory disease. More...

Paper Diagnostic Directly Measures Fibrinogen in Whole Blood

Fibrinogen is a protein found in blood that is needed for clotting. When a patient experiences traumatic injury, such as a serious car accident, or major surgery and childbirth complications, fibrinogen is required in their blood to prevent major hemorrhaging and death from blood loss. More...

Newborns Getting Preoperative Blood Transfusions Have More Complications

Blood transfusions in the neonatal patient population are common, but there are no established guidelines regarding transfusion thresholds. Little is known about postoperative outcomes in neonates who receive preoperative blood transfusions (PBTs). More...

Single-Cell Sequencing Reveals Clonal Diversity Among AML Patients

A growing body of evidence supports the role of clonal diversity in therapeutic resistance, recurrence, and poor outcomes in cancer. Clonal diversity also reflects the history of the accumulation of somatic mutations within a tumor. More...

Image: Mutations in cell free DNA (cfDNA) or cells in the peripheral blood along with anemia or thrombocytopenia are the hallmark of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). The diagnosis of MDS is confirmed when mutations in hematopoietic cells are detected at relatively high levels (Photo courtesy of Genomic Testing Cooperative).

Inherited Causes of Clonal Hematopoiesis in Multiplicity of Whole Genomes

The age-related acquisition of somatic mutations that lead to clonal expansion in regenerating hematopoietic stem cell populations has recently been associated with both hematological cancer and coronary heart disease, and this phenomenon is termed clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP). More...

New Technology Rapidly Diagnoses Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of blood disorders typically inherited from a person's parents. The most common type is known as sickle cell anemia (SCA). It results in an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein hemoglobin found in red blood cells. More...
