Blood Test 24 Hours After Start of Chemotherapy Predicts Survival

Acute myeloid leukemia is an aggressive blood cancer with poor survival. Despite high rates of initial chemotherapy response, patients often relapse due to the selection and development of chemotherapy-resistant leukemic cells. Researchers have now found a new method that within hours can predict if certain cancer patients will survive or not after chemotherapy. More...

Laboratory Diagnostic Workup of Microcytic Anemia Evaluated

In microcytic anemia, the red blood cells (erythrocytes) contain less hemoglobin and are usually also hypochromic, meaning that the red blood cells appear paler than usual. This can be reflected by a low mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC). More...

First Leukemia Diagnostic Test Based on DNA Sequencing Detects up To 51 Gene Mutations

Until 2022 the only leukemia tests done could detect two gene mutations. Now, a new leukemia diagnostic test is capable of detecting 51 gene mutations, marking a significant technological and medical advancement. More...

Haptoglobin 1 Allele Predicts Higher Serum Haptoglobin Concentration in SCD

Approximately 30% of the hemolysis in sickle cell disease (SCD) is intravascular, resulting in increasing plasma cell–free hemoglobin which contributes to organ damage through direct oxidative injury, consumption of nitric oxide, and upregulation of inflammatory pathways. More...

Novel Digital Morphology Analyzer Performance Evaluated

Microscopic examination of peripheral blood smear (PBS) is essential in clinical hematology laboratories. Manual counting is, however, inefficient because the process is technically demanding and labor-intensive resulting in long turnaround time (TAT), and the results may be subjective with inter-observer variation. More...

Laboratory Features of Trichinellosis and Eosinophilia Threshold Determined

Trichinella nativa is a nematode worm, one of the species of the genus Trichinella, found in arctic and subarctic regions. It is highly pathogenic and has a high resistance to freezing. It is encapsulated, and infects a wide variety of mammals and birds. More...
