Acute Myeloid Leukemia Regulatory Networks Identified

Adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of cancer in which the bone marrow makes abnormal myeloblasts (a type of white blood cell), red blood cells, or platelets. AML is a heterogeneous disease caused by a variety of alterations in transcription factors, epigenetic regulators and signaling molecules. More...

Malaria Parasitaemia Correlated with Monocyte to Lymphocyte Ratio

In spite of a declining trend in the number of cases and deaths over the last few years, malaria still causes significant mortality and morbidity and the bulk of the burden is observed in children under five years of age. More...

Rapid Test for Sickle-Cell Disease Evaluated

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a common, life‐threatening genetic disorder that is best managed when diagnosed early by newborn screening. Sickle cell disease (SCD) is highly prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa and central India. Sickle cell anemia is the most common and severe form of SCD. More...
