Tissue Microarray of Hematological Malignancies

2019-11-03 15:11:09 | BioPortfolio


The aim of the study is to create new tools for improving management of patients with hematological malignancies by combining extensive clinical data from patients newly diagnosed with hematological malignancies and innovative laboratory analyses made on available tissue samples in regional biobanks from these patients.


Firstly, clinical information is collected on all hematological malignancies diagnosed in our hospital district area retrospectively between the years 2000 and 2019. Clinical outcomes, laboratory results, clinically relevant diagnoses, characteristics defining clinical stage and established prognostic parameters are gathered.

Simultaneously a tissue microarray (TMA) of diagnostic samples is compiled using representative annotated tissue areas. This TMA is used in combination with additional control material to identify prognostic and predictive biomarkers.

A combined microarray dataset of hematological malignancies (Hemap) is utilized to point out genes of possible drug targets, disease specific markers, prognostic markers, or predictive markers.

The clinical datasets and Hemap dataset is ultimately utilized to gain knowledge, new tools for prognostication and diagnostics, and targets for treatment.

Saprochaete clavata Infections in Patients Undergoing Treatment for Hematological Malignancies: A Report of a Monocentric Outbreak and Review of the Literature.

Saprochaete clavata is a a rare cause of fungemia with deep organ involvement in patients with hematological malignancies with reported mortality rates of 60-80%.

Heterozygous loss of Srp72 in mice is not associated with major hematological phenotypes.

Familial cases of hematological malignancies are associated with germline mutations. In particular, heterozygous mutations of SRP72 correlate with the development of myelodysplasia and bone marrow apl...

CAR T-cell Therapy in Hematologic Malignancies: A Voyage in Progress.

The development of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy for select hematological malignancies represents one of the most remarkable therapeutic advances in the past decade. Currently, CD19-t...

Hepatitis B and C virus infection and risk of hematological malignancies.

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are classified as oncogenic human viruses. Chronic HBV and HCV infections are associated with higher risk of hematological malignancy development. D...

Antibiotic treatment ameliorates Ten-eleven Translocation 2 (TET2) loss-of-function associated hematological malignancies.

TET2 is among the most frequently mutated genes in hematological malignancies, as well as in healthy individuals with clonal hematopoiesis. Inflammatory stress is known to promote the expansion of Tet...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Use of HIRUDINS as an anticoagulant in the treatment of cardiological and hematological disorders.

A hematopoietic growth factor which promotes proliferation and maturation of neutrophil granulocytes. Clinically it is effective in decreasing the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive therapy or in reducing the duration of neutropenia and neutropenia-related clinical sequelae in patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myeloblastive chemotherapy followed by BMT. It has also been used in AIDS patients with CMV retinitis being treated with GANCICLOVIR. (Gelman CR, Rumack BH & Hess AJ (eds): DRUGDEX(R) System. MICROMEDEX, Inc., Englewood, Colorado (Edition expires 11/30/95))

A tetracyclic compound with antidepressant effects. It may cause drowsiness and hematological problems. Its mechanism of therapeutic action is not well understood, although it apparently blocks alpha-adrenergic, histamine H1, and some types of serotonin receptors.

An alkylating agent of value against both hematologic malignancies and solid tumors.

A condition caused by a brief whole body exposure to more than one sievert dose equivalent of radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is initially characterized by ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; VOMITING; but can progress to hematological, gastrointestinal, neurological, pulmonary, and other major organ dysfunction.
