Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Linked to Thyroid Levels

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a common disease marked by lengthy spells of weakness, fatigue and depression. Its diagnosis is predominantly based on symptoms and on ruling out any underlying medical condition, rather than on laboratory tests and physical examination. More...

Unusual Blood Clots Characterized in Leprosy Patients

Leprosy is a chronic infection by Mycobacterium leprae and causes body-wide symptoms, deformities, and disability. It remains a public health problem worldwide, despite the existence of antibiotic combinations that can cure it. More...

Flow Cytometry Detects Myelodysplasia in Peripheral Blood

Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) are a group of myeloid neoplasms characterized by inefficient hematopoiesis, peripheral blood (PB) cytopenias and high risk of leukemic progression. More...

Image: Chromosomes with telomeres at their tips, in green. The intensity of the green signal is one indicator of telomere length, which is a measure of cellular “aging” and determines how many times a cell can divide (Photo courtesy of Professor George Daley, MD, PhD).

Telomere Length Test Influences Treatment Decisions

Telomeres protect the ends of DNA and they normally shorten with aging. They are made up of repetitive sequences of DNA, and normal telomeres have enough length to withstand the erosion that occurs over the normal lifespan of a cell. More...

Multiple Myeloma Risk Genes Revealed

Two genes have been uncovered with apparent ties to inherited multiple myeloma risk, starting from analyses of several large American families that are frequently affected by the complex blood plasma cell cancer. More...

Blood Test Helps Identify CV Patients Most at Risk

A new blood test could provide a clue as to why some patients are at higher risk of cardiovascular disease risk after suffering a heart attack, which may help scientists to identify new targets for reducing the risk and eventually lead to more effective treatments. More...

Residual Disease in Leukemia Patients Identified by ddPCR

Currently, minimal residual disease for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients is typically monitored using real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR), but often leukemic stem cells with the BCR-ABL1 rearrangement are present below the limit of detect of RT-qPCR. More...
