The immature platelet count (IPF#) is a new haematological diagnostic parameter available from a routine blood laboratory test. Discover in this white paper how it can help you to evaluate the effectiveness of antiplatelet medication and forecast the risk of adverse cardiovascular events.
The intended objective of this newsletter is to highlight the importance of early detection of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The diagnosis of CKD often require the input of many disciplines along side that of the primary health care giver. It is common for patients with CKD to also have other chronic conditions, including but not restricted to hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Malaria is a detectable, preventable, and curable disease, but the burden on global health is still very high. This SEED article discusses a broad range of aspects, from the latest figures from the World Health Organisation and the Plasmodium life cycle to the limitations of stablished diagnostic tests, and how new technologies, such as the Sysmex XN-31 analyser, can enlighten the way towards malaria elimination.
During HSCT patients suffer from many critical conditions such as thrombocytopenia or infections, as well as it is necessary to closely monitor the engraftment. This white paper explains how a Sysmex haematology analyser can answer your clinical demands.
There has been an increase in the use of neoadjuvant systemic therapy (NAST) in breast cancer patients in recent years. The main indications include shrinking the primary tumour, thus reducing the extent of surgery, or enabling breast conserving surgery instead of mastectomy. Moreover, it allows an assessment of the tumour’s response to systemic therapy.
Platelet formation: As described by Wright for the first time, platelets are small non-nucleated ‘extensions’ of megakaryocytes – the platelet precursor cells present in bone marrow that develop from a stem cell in the course of thrombopoiesis (platelet generation).
