Prognostic Values of Platelet Parameters in Gynecological Tumors Patients

 Gynecologic cancers often involve the uterus, ovaries, cervix, vulva, vagina, fallopian tubes, or the peritoneum. The most common gynecologic cancer in the USA is endometrial cancer, followed by ovarian cancer. Many gynecologic cancers manifest as pelvic masses. More...

Image: Sacroiliac joint biopsy specimen of a 29 year old male patient with ankylosing spondylitis. The biopsy specimen shows a subchondral cellular infiltrate partly invading the cartilage. Fibroblasts and activated lymphocytes are seen in the infiltrate. In between are areas of calcification and bone formation (Photo courtesy of Professor J. Braun).

Fibrinogen-Albumin Ratio Correlated to Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity

 Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a systematic inflammatory autoimmune disease that primarily involves the spine and sacroiliac joints. Typically the joints where the spine joins the pelvis are also affected and occasionally other joints such as the shoulders or hips are involved. Back pain is a characteristic symptom of AS, and it often comes and goes. More...

NGS Identifies Genomic Characteristics of Pediatric Leukemia

 Pediatric leukemias have a diverse genomic landscape associated with complex structural variants, including gene fusions, insertions and deletions, and single nucleotide variants. Routine karyotype and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) techniques lack sensitivity for smaller genomic alternations. More...

Minimal Residual Disease Assessed in AL Amyloidosis Patients

 Amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis, also known as primary amyloidosis, is the most common form of systemic amyloidosis in the USA. Despite achieving a hematologic complete response after treatment, many patients with AL amyloidosis do not attain recovery of organ function and/or experience hematologic relapse. More...

Microbiome Composition Predicts Outcome Among Stem Cell Transplant Patients

 Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplants are common among patients with blood cancers, and while they may cure the disease, such transplants can also lead to complications such as graft-versus-host disease and infections. More...

Predictors Evaluated for Microalbuminuria in Type 2 Diabetes

 Chronic inflammation has an important role in the development and progression of type 2 diabetes through immunologic inflammatory mechanisms. The neutrophil‐to‐lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a new, simple, and inexpensive marker of subclinical inflammation and has been used as a systemic inflammatory marker in chronic diseases. More...

Dual Immunohistochemistry Bone Marrow Staining Detects Hairy Cell Leukemia

 Hairy cell leukemia (HCL) is a B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by distinct immunophenotype (positive for CD19, CD20, PAX5, CD22, CD11c, CD25, CD103, CD123, and CD200). Immunophenotypic analysis by flow cytometry (FC) is considered the gold standard for diagnosis of HCL. More...
