Single-Cell Analysis Elucidates Mutation Patterns in Myeloid Malignancies

Myeloid malignancies are clonal diseases of hematopoietic stem or progenitor cells. Myeloid malignancies, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML), arise from the expansion of these hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells that acquire somatic mutations. More...

Anticoagulant Adjustment Evaluated Using Different Prothrombin Time Tests

Preanalytical variables may affect the results of routine coagulation assays. One important variable is hematocrit (Ht), which affects coagulation testing results. A sample with high Ht has lower plasma quantity, resulting in a dilution effect on the sample by an excess of the anticoagulant sodium citrate. More...

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...
