The primary objective of this study is to obtain de-identified, clinically characterized, whole blood specimens for use in assessing new biomarkers for the detection of neoplasms of the lu...
Natural Killer (NK) cells play a unique role during innate immune responses as they are able to recognize and eliminate, without specific sensitization, tumors, microbe-infected cells as w...
The purpose of this study is to determine if collecting information and blood from a group of people who never smoked but who have lung cancer, is possible across the US. The investigators...
The primary objective of this study is to obtain de-identified, clinically characterized, whole blood specimens to evaluate biomarkers associated with cancer for diagnostic assay developme...
The purpose of this study is to help us better understand the cellular changes that may lead to the development of lung cancer. We want to compare people who have never smoked and yet have...
Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a parameter measured in blood sample tests that reflects the variation in the volume of erythrocytes and used to differentiate an anemic state. The RDW has b...
BACKGROUND The mechanism by which diabetes mellitus (DM) impacts the association between ABO blood types and pancreatic cancer is unclear. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective case-control study of 26...
Isolation of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) has generated clinical and academic interest due to the important role that CTCs play in cancer metastasis and diagnosis. Here, we present a PDMS and glass ...
Herein is presented a platform capable of detecting less than 30 cells from a whole blood sample by size-exclusion filtration, microfluidic sample handling, and mass spectrometric detection through si...
The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.
The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.
The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.
The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.
