Lymphocytic Infiltration Explored as Biomarker for Stable Colorectal Tumors

Identifying stage II patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) at higher risk of progression is a clinical priority in order to optimize the advantages of adjuvant chemotherapy while avoiding unnecessary toxicity. A remarkable feature of CRC is the difference in prognosis of patients diagnosed at early versus late stages of the disease. More...

MAIT Cell Activation Dynamics Associated with COVID-19 Disease Severity

The balance between protective versus pathological immune responses in COVID-19 has been a concern since the onset of the pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 infection can lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a condition characterized by aggressive inflammatory responses in the lower airways. More...

Serum Thyroglobulin Assays Compared for Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma

Measurement of serum thyroglobulin (Tg) plays a key role in the post‐thyroidectomy management of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). In this context, the performance of new‐generation thyroglobulin assay has clinical implications in the follow‐up of DTC patients. More...

Performance Compared for Three Ebola Rapid Diagnostic Tests

Ebola is a rare but deadly virus that causes fever, body aches, and diarrhea, and sometimes bleeding inside and outside the body. As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. Ultimately, it causes levels of blood-clotting cells to drop. More...

Mannose-Binding Lectin Associated with Coagulopathy in Severe COVID-19

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant morbidity and mortality worldwide, as well as profound effects on society. COVID-19 patients have an increased risk of thromboembolic (TE) complications, which develop despite pharmacological thromboprophylaxis. More...

Unique Antibody Profile Differentiates Gluten Sensitivity from Celiac Disease

Until recently, many doctors often dismissed the complaints of people who claimed to be sensitive to foods containing gluten but did not have celiac disease, a well-documented autoimmune disease triggered by exposure to the dietary protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. More...
