PURPOSE: An increasing number of patients with end-stage heart failure are supported with left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation and must be maintained on a consistent anticoagulation regimen. Pre-emptive extraction of carious teeth in these patients is necessary to prevent seeding of the implanted device and endocarditis. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate bleeding complications after minor oral surgery, specifically teeth extractions, in this unique patient population requiring long-term anticoagulation...

Numerous acquired molecular and cytogenetic abnormalities are strongly associated with hematological malignancies. The breakpoint cluster region-ABL proto-oncogene 1 (BCR-ABL) rearrangement leads to a p210 chimeric protein in typical chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), whereas 17-25% of patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia and 0.9-3% patients with de novo acute myeloid leukemia (AML) carry a p190(BCR-ABL) fusion protein. Cases of patients with AML/CML carrying two specific primary molecular changes, BCR-ABL and core binding factor-β-myosin heavy chain 11 (CBFβ-MYH11) fusion genes have been rarely reported...

BACKGROUND: The mechanisms of acid-base changes during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) remain unclear. We tested the hypothesis that, when used as CPB pump prime solutions, Plasma-Lyte 148 (PL) and Hartmann's solution (HS) have differential mechanisms of action in their contribution to acid-base changes. METHODS: We performed a prospective, double-blind, randomized trial in adult patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery with CPB. Participants received a CPB prime solution of 2000 mL, with either PL or HS...

BACKGROUND: Radiation exposure poses a significant threat to public health. Hematopoietic injury is one of the major manifestations of acute radiation sickness. Protection and/or mitigation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) from radiation injury is an important goal in the development of medical countermeasure agents (MCM). We recently identified thioredoxin (TXN) as a novel molecule that has marked protective and proliferative effects on HSCs. In the current study, we investigated the effectiveness of TXN in rescuing mice from a lethal dose of total body radiation (TBI) and in enhancing hematopoietic reconstitution following a lethal dose of irradiation...

Referral to hematology for anemia is common. In paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), cells deficient in the glycosylphosphatidyl inositol (GPI) anchor are lysed by complement. Eculizumab improves overall survival and quality of life while reducing hemolysis, transfusion requirements, and thrombosis. We evaluated the frequency of screening for PNH in patients with unexplained anemia. Key clinical features, laboratory data, and investigations were recorded for patients referred for anemia since 2010, without a specific cause found...

BACKGROUND: White blood cell counts are routinely measured with automated hematology analyzers, by flow cytometry, or by manual counting. Here, we introduce an alternative approach based on DNA methylation (DNAm) at individual CG dinucleotides (CpGs). METHODS: We identified candidate CpGs that were nonmethylated in specific leukocyte subsets. DNAm levels (ranging from 0% to 100%) were analyzed by pyrosequencing and implemented into deconvolution algorithms to determine the relative composition of leukocytes...

No unified immunophenotypic profiles and corresponding analytic strategies have been established for the rapid diagnosis of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) using flow cytometry (FCM). Here we describe a characteristic immunophenotypic panel that can rapidly and accurately distinguish APL from other types of adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) using only FCM. By comparing APL cells and non-APL AML cells that share APL common immunophenotypes (CD34(-)CD117(+)HLA(-)DR(-)) we found that CD64 was a significant factor that differentiated APL from other AMLs...

OBJECTIVES: Umbilical cord blood is used for transplantation purposes in regenerative medicine of hematological disorders. MicroRNAs are important regulators of gene expression that control both physiological and pathological processes such as cancer development and incidence. There is a new relation between p53 (tumor suppressor gene) and miR-145 (suppressor of cell growth) upregulation. In this study, we have assessed how adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) affect the expansion of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), as well as miR-145 and p53 expressions...

The in vivo rodent Pig-a mutation assay is a sensitive test to identify exposure to mutagenic substances, and has been proposed as an assay for the identification of impurities for pharmaceuticals. Red blood cells (RBCs) and reticulocytes (RETs) are analyzed by flow cytometry after exposure to potentially mutagenic chemicals for cells deficient in the cell surface anchored protein CD59, representing mutation in the X-linked Pig-a gene. The full potential of the assay as well as its limitations are currently being explored...

The zebrafish, Danio rerio, is a powerful model for the study of erythropoiesis and defining the genetic basis of hematological diseases. The mechanisms of erythroid differentiation are highly conserved in the zebrafish, permitting translational research studies and the modeling of erythropoiesis in higher vertebrates. An advantage of the system is the ability to manipulate gene expression and observe the effect on erythroid development in vivo, with relative ease and rapidity. The production of optically transparent embryos also makes it an attractive tool for visual analysis of circulating erythrocytes that can be used to study erythropoiesis...

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) improve the prognosis of patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) by inducing substantial deep molecular responses (DMRs); some patients could successfully discontinue TKI therapy after maintaining DMR for ≥1 year. In this cessation study, we investigated the optimal conditions for dasatinib discontinuation in patients who maintained DMR for ≥2 years. This study included 54 patients with CML who were enrolled in D-STOP multicenter prospective trial, had achieved DMR, and had discontinued dasatinib after 2-year consolidation...

DISEASE OVERVIEW: The eosinophilias encompass a broad range of nonhematologic (secondary or reactive) and hematologic (primary, clonal) disorders with potential for end-organ damage. DIAGNOSIS: Hypereosinophilia has generally been defined as a peripheral blood eosinophil count greater than 1500/mm(3) and may be associated with tissue damage. After exclusion of secondary causes of eosinophilia, diagnostic evaluation of primary eosinophilias relies on a combination of morphologic review of the blood and marrow, standard cytogenetics, fluorescent in situ-hybridization, flow immunocytometry, and T-cell clonality assessment to detect histopathologic or clonal evidence for an acute or chronic myeloid or lymphoproliferative disorder...

BACKGROUND: Patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) often have concurrent aplastic anemia (AA). This study aimed to determine whether eculizumab-treated patients show clinical benefit regardless of concurrent AA. METHODS: We analyzed 46 PNH patients ≥18 years of age who were diagnosed by flow cytometry and treated with eculizumab for more than 6 months in the prospective Korean PNH registry. Patients were categorized into two groups: PNH patients with concurrent AA (PNH/AA, N=27) and without AA (classic PNH, N=19)...

The ability to characterize the mechanical properties of erythrocytes is important in clinical and research contexts: to diagnose and monitor hematologic disorders, as well as to optimize the design of cardiovascular implants and blood circulating devices with respect to blood damage. However, investigation of red blood cell (RBC) properties generally involves preparatory and processing steps. Even though these impose mechanical stresses on cells, little is known about their impact on the final measurement results...

INTRODUCTION: Flow cytometry is a useful tool for diagnosis and minimal residual disease (MRD) study of hematological diseases. Standard sample preparation protocols are characterized by stain-lyse-wash (SLW). To prevent nonspecific bindings and achieve high sensitivity in MRD studies, lyse-wash-stain-wash (LWSW) is required. To our knowledge, no comparison between the two methods has been performed. METHODS: We compared mean fluorescence intensity (MFI), stain index, signal-to-noise ratio, and percentage of positive cells of 104 antibodies and of 13 selected antibodies tested in 10 samples simultaneously prepared with the two methods...
