Eosinophil Count Provides Diagnostic Information for COVID-19

Early diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and patient isolation are important for both individual patient care and disease containment. The diagnosis is confirmed by testing for the presence of nasopharyngeal viral RNA with a polymerase chain reaction assay, which has limited availability, variable turnaround time, and a high false-negative rate.

Micro-Lab on a Chip Detects Blood Type Within Minutes

Blood transfusion, if performed promptly, is a potentially life-saving intervention for someone losing a lot of blood. However, blood comes in several types, some of which are incompatible with others. Transfusing an incompatible blood type can severely harm a patient. More...

Endotheliopathy Assessed in COVID-19-Associated Coagulopathy

An important feature of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 pathogenesis is COVID-19-associated coagulopathy, characterized by increased thrombotic and microvascular complications. COVID-19 infection coagulopathy is characterized by high D-dimer and fibrinogen concentrations with minor changes in prothrombin time and platelet count. More...

COVID-19 Patients with Lymphocytopenia Are Likely to Suffer Severe Disease Symptoms

An easily recognizable feature in blood samples may be an indicator of whether a COVID-19 patient will be likely to suffer from a severe form of the disease. More...

Immunogenomic Landscape of Hematological Malignancies Mapped

The reaction of the body's immune system against cancer can be thought of as a cycle. Cancer cells contain proteins that differ from proteins in other tissue. Their components, known as antigens, have to be presented to the T cells of the immune system by the cancer cells. More...

Clonal Hematopoiesis of Indeterminate Potential Associated with hsC-Reactive Protein

Clonal hematopoiesis (CH) occurring in normally aging subjects, initially suggested by X-chromosome inactivation studies, is caused by acquired mutations in genes recurrently mutated in hematological cancers, and in non-driver candidates. More...

Novel Device Compared to Thromboelastography for Clotting Defects

Clotting disorders occur when the body is unable to make sufficient amounts of the proteins that are needed to help the blood clot, stopping bleeding. These proteins are called clotting factors (coagulation factors). All clotting factors are made in the liver which requires vitamin K to make some of the clotting factors. More...
