Different Clinical Hematology Lab Configurations Compared

Automated hematology analyzers are key clinical laboratory instruments that measure blood counts, identify subsets of nucleated blood cells, and flag specimens for further manual analysis. These analyzers range in price and functionality. More...

Immune Signature Drives Leukemia Relapse after Transplantation

Transplantation of hematopoietic cells from a healthy individual (allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT)) demonstrates that adoptive immunotherapy can cure blood cancers: still, post-transplantation relapses remain frequent. More...

Biomarker Predicts Factor VIII Response in Hemophilia A

Hemophilia A is a genetic deficiency in clotting factor VIII (FVIII), which causes increased bleeding and usually affects males. In the majority of cases it is inherited as an X-linked recessive trait, though there are cases, which arise from spontaneous mutations. More...

CRYOcheck Factor VIII Inhibitor Kit Cleared for Distribution

Hemophilia A is an inherited bleeding disorder caused by insufficient clotting factor VIII (FVIII) in the blood. People with hemophilia A experience prolonged bleeding, which can lead to permanent joint damage and life-threatening hemorrhages. Prophylaxis, the regular infusion of clotting factor concentrates, is used to prevent bleeds thereby minimizing joint damage. More...

Adverse Drug Response Risk Gene Identified for IBD

Investigators have uncovered genetic variants in a gene called Nudix hydrolase 15 (NUDT15) that seem to coincide with treatment-related complications in individuals of European ancestry with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). More...
