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...

Higher Female TSH Associated With Lower Mannan-Binding Lectin

 Mannan-binding lectin (MBL) is a main component of the lectin pathway of the complement system. Lower MBL levels are associated with, among other conditions, hypothyroidism and adverse pregnancy outcomes. 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...

Plasma HSP90α Levels Used for Detection of Hepatocellular Carcinoma

 Liver cancer is composed mostly of primary liver cancers and secondary liver cancers. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), as the major type of primary liver cancer, is the fifth most common tumor worldwide and the third leading cause of cancer mortality, responsible for 745,500 cancer deaths annually. More...

Multiplex Nested Polymerase Chain Reaction Developed for Congenital Infections

 Infections are the leading cause of perinatal mortality in low- and middle-income countries, which have a higher prevalence of infections, and are responsible for 50% of infant deaths in the first year of life. Definitive diagnosis of congenital and perinatal infections is largely dependent upon the results of laboratory tests. More...

Rapid Diagnostic Tests for Chagas Disease Field Evaluated

 Chagas disease, caused by infection with the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, is the neglected tropical disease exerting a highest burden in the Western hemisphere. It is estimated that there are around seven million people affected worldwide, the majority of them living in Latin America where the insect vectors that transmit the infection are endemic. More...

Rapid Diagnostic Test for The Detection of G6PD Deficiency Evaluated

 To reduce the risk of drug-induced hemolysis, all patients should be tested for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency (G6PDd) prior to prescribing primaquine (PQ)-based radical cure for the treatment of vivax malaria. More...
