ABO Blood Group and the Risk of Pancreatic Cancer Background Other than several rare, highly penetrant familial syndromes, genetic risk factors for sporadic pancreatic cancer are largely unknown. ABO blood type is an inherited characteristic that in previous small studies has been associated with the risk of gastrointestinal malignancies. Methods We separately examined the relationship between ABO blood type and the risk of incident pancreatic cancer in two large, independent, prospective cohort studies (the Nurses’ Health Study and Health Professionals … Continue reading “Latest Research on ABO Blood : Nov 2020”

New prognostic scoring system for primary myelofibrosis based on a study of the International Working Group for Myelofibrosis Research and Treatment Therapeutic decision-making in primary myelofibrosis (PMF) is becoming more challenging because of the increasing use of allogeneic stem cell transplantation and new investigational drugs. To enhance this process by developing a highly discriminative prognostic system, 1054 patients consecutively diagnosed with PMF at 7 centers were studied. Overall median survival was 69 months (95% confidence interval [CI]: 61-76). Multivariate analysis … Continue reading “Latest Research on Myelofibrosis : Nov 2020”

Anemia of Chronic Disease New therapeutic strategies have emerged along side our understanding that disturbances of iron homeostasis, impaired proliferation of erythroid progenitor cells, and blunted erythropoietin response occur in anemia of chronic disease. This review discusses advances in our knowledge of the causes and management of the condition. [1] Autoimmune hemolytic anemia Red blood corpuscle (RBC) autoantibodies are a comparatively uncommon explanation for anemia. However, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (AIHA) must be considered within the medical diagnosis of hemolytic anemias, … Continue reading “News Update on Anemia Research: Jan – 2020”

Osteogenesis in transplants of bone marrow cells After heterotopic (e.g. subcutaneous) transplantation of bone marrow, haemopoiesis within the graft ceases; reticular tissue develops instead, and later bone is made (Denis, 1958). The result are often achieved by grafting either free pieces of bone marrow or those placed in diffusion chambers (Petrakova, Tolmacheva & Friedenstein, 1963; Rosin, Freiberg & Sajnek, 1963). within the case of free transplantation the bone formed is later crammed with bone marrow. After transplantation in diffusion chambers … Continue reading “Latest Research News on Bone Marrow: Jan – 2020”

Primary central nervous system lymphoma in japan: a nationwide survey Purpose: to research clinical features, treatment results, and prognostic factors of primary central systema nervosum lymphoma (PCNSL) in Japan, we conducted a nationwide survey. Methods and Materials: We analyzed 466 patients with histologically proven PCNSL treated between 1985 and 1994 at 62 institutions, including 56 medical schools. Results: Patient and tumor characteristics of the 466 patients weren’t greatly different from those reported previously, apart from the relatively high proportion of … Continue reading “Latest News on Lymphoma Research: Jan – 2020”
