Metabolic Syndrome Associated with Increased Blood Clot Recurrence Risk

 People with metabolic syndrome which are a set of conditions including obesity, impaired glucose metabolism, elevated levels of fats and cholesterol in the blood, and high blood pressure, are more likely to experience recurrent blood clots. More...

Diagnostic Assay Identifies Leukemic Stem Cells

 Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common type of leukemia in adults. It is characterized by the pathological expansion of immature cells (myeloblasts) that invade the bone marrow and expand into the blood, affecting the production of the rest of the healthy cells. More...

Glycoprotein-Specific Direct Platelet Autoantibody Testing in Immune Thrombocytopenia

 Autoantibodies directed against platelet glycoproteins have long been accepted as a major pathophysiologic mechanism in immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), but platelet autoantibody (PA) testing has previously shown poor sensitivity for ITP diagnosis. More...

Biomarker Predicts Prognosis in Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients

 Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most prevalent adult acute leukemia, which is characterized by abnormal proliferation and the accumulation of immature myeloid precursor cells in the bone marrow, peripheral blood, and even some tissues, contributing to the destruction of the hematopoietic system. More...

Molecular Profiles, Microenvironment Signatures May Improve Lymphoma Prognosis

 The tumor microenvironment includes surrounding blood vessels, immune cells, fibroblasts, signaling molecules, and the extracellular matrix that encapsulate the cancerous cells. The non-lymphoma cells lingering in the tumor's microenvironment, for example, can modify the effect of the mutations. More...

Immature Natural Killer Cells Predict Relapse After Cord Blood Transplantation

 Umbilical cord blood transplantation (CBT) has become an accepted alternative treatment of patients with hematologic cancers or other disorders. Many of the disadvantages of CBT, including limited numbers of total nucleated cells, have been dealt with in significant ways, leading to marked reductions in the time to hematopoietic cell recovery.

Hypercoagulability Evaluated in New‐Onset Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Patients

 Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that involves T cell, B cell, and dendritic cell dysfunction, as well as antinuclear autoantibody production. Several clinical and scientific studies of SLE indicate an increased risk of thrombosis in these cases. More...
