New Diagnosed Anemia Linked to Crohn’s Disease Risk

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) includes Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). IBD is a chronic inflammatory gastrointestinal disorder that involves complex interactions among genetic, environmental, immunological, and microbiological factors. More...

Hematological Parameters Evaluated for Cervicocranial Arterial Dissection Stroke

As artery detachment, artery dissection refers to the vascular disease in which blood flow enters the artery wall and causes dissection of vascular wall. Cervicocranial arterial dissection (CCAD) can lead to stenosis or occlusion of the lumen has become one of the most frequent causes for ischemic stroke in the young. More...

Quantitative Agglutination Determined on Automatic Hematology Analyzer

The currently available agglutination identification methods are slide methods and test tube methods. Based on the distribution, uniformity and comprehensive changes of non-aggregated cells and agglutinating cells in the liquid, the agglutination degree and strength can be determined by the naked eye. More...

Complex ABO Glycan Phenotypes Predicted by Lectin Microarrays

Serological classification of individuals as A, B, O, or AB is a mainstay of blood banking. ABO blood groups or ABH antigens, in addition to other surface glycans, act as unique red blood cell (RBC) signatures and direct immune responses. ABO subgroups present as weakened, mixed field, or unexpected reactivity with serological reagents, but specific designations remain complex. More...

Positive Lymphocyte Gene Rearrangement Evaluated for Hematologic Malignancies

The diagnosis of a lymphoid malignancy requires the establishment of monoclonality of a lymphocyte population through morphologic assessment and laboratory testing, such as flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and cytogenetic analysis. More...

Image: A blood film with a normal mature lymphocyte with a single large nucleus is seen on the left, compared to two segmented neutrophils on the right with multiple nuclear lobes. The lymphocytes are decreased in comorbid diabetes and COVID-19 patients (Photo courtesy of Ed Reschke).

Lymphocyte Count Correlated to Comorbid Diabetes and COVID-19

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that erupted in China since December 2019 and has gradually spread throughout the world. At present, it has caused tens of thousands of deaths, and the efficacy of certain antiviral drugs is still under review. More...

Clonal Hematopoiesis Prevalence Determined in Healthy Donors

Clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) is defined as the presence of a clone at more than 2% of variant allele frequency (VAF) in peripheral blood (PB) of individuals with no evidence of hematologic disease. More...
