Hematology

Factor IX Inhibitor Incidence in Pediatric Hemophilia B Examined

 Hemophilia B is a blood clotting disorder causing easy bruising and bleeding due to an inherited mutation of the gene for factor IX, and resulting in a deficiency of factor IX. It is less common than factor VIII deficiency (hemophilia A). More...

Physical Activity and Thrombophilic Risk Investigated

 Among the effects of physical exercise on coagulation, the influence on protein anticoagulant system and PC deficiency-related thrombophilic risk are still controversial. The impact of physical activity on the coagulation system has been described. More...

Image: The DOAC dipstick is a diagnostic urine test strip, which is intended for qualitative detection of the absence or presence of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs: Dabigatran, Apixaban, Edoxaban and Rivaroxaban) in human urine by visual identification of colors (Photo courtesy of DOASENSE GmbH).

Direct Oral Anticoagulants Determined by RDT in Urine Samples

 The rapid determination of the presence of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in a patient remains a major challenge in emergency medicine and for rapid medical treatment decisions. All DOACs are excreted into urine. More...

Immune Profiles Analyzed in Acute Myeloid Leukemia Bone Marrow

 In acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myeloid lineage precursor cells modified by somatic mutations and transcriptomic dysregulation infiltrate the bone marrow (BM) and disrupt normal hematopoiesis. More...

Image: Acute Myeloid Leukemia: The blasts are medium to large in size and have an elevated nuclear: cytoplasmic ratio. The nuclear chromatin is fine and there are prominent nucleoli. Frequent blasts show indented or “cup-shaped” nuclear contours (Photo courtesy of Elizabeth Courville, MD).

Bone Marrow Donors May Transfer Pathogenic Mutations to Patients

 Clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential, or CHIP, is characterized by the presence of mutant hematopoietic stem cell clones in the bone marrow without overt signs of disease. More...

Metabolic Syndrome Associated with Increased Blood Clot Recurrence Risk

 People with metabolic syndrome which are a set of conditions including obesity, impaired glucose metabolism, elevated levels of fats and cholesterol in the blood, and high blood pressure, are more likely to experience recurrent blood clots. More...

Diagnostic Assay Identifies Leukemic Stem Cells

 Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common type of leukemia in adults. It is characterized by the pathological expansion of immature cells (myeloblasts) that invade the bone marrow and expand into the blood, affecting the production of the rest of the healthy cells. More...
