Immunohematology, more commonly known as blood banking is a branch of hematology which studies antigen-antibody reactions and analogous phenomena as they relate to the pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of blood disorders. A person employed in this field is referred to as an immunohematologist. Their day-to-day duties include blood typing, cross-matching and antibody identification.
The specialist Immunohematology and Transfusion Physician provides expert opinion for difficult transfusions, massive transfusions, incompatibility work up, therapeutic plasmapheresis, cellular therapy, irradiated blood therapy, leuko reduced and washed blood products, stem cell procedures, platelet rich plasma therapies, HLA and cord blood banking.
Advancing novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of malignancy into the marketplace is an increasingly costly and lengthy process. As such, new strategies for drug discovery are needed. Drug repurposing represents an opportunity to rapidly advance new therapeutic strategies into clinical trials at a relatively low cost. Known on-patent or off-patent drugs with unrecognized anticancer activity can be rapidly advanced into clinical testing for this new indication by leveraging their known pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, and toxicology.
Here, several scientific approaches used to identify drug repurposing opportunities are highlighted, with a focus on hematologic malignancies. In addition, a discussion of the regulatory issues that are unique to drug repurposing and how they impact developing old drugs for new indications is included. Finally, the mechanisms to enhance drug repurposing through increased collaborations between academia, industry, and nonprofit charitable organizations are discussed.
Pediatric Hematology and Oncology is an international peer-reviewed medical journal that covers all aspects of pediatric hematology and oncology. The journal covers immunology, pathology, and pharmacology in relation to blood diseases and cancer in children and shows how basic experimental research can contribute to the understanding of clinical problems. Physicians specialized in hematology are known as hematologists or hematologists.
Their routine work mainly includes the care and treatment of patients with hematological diseases, although some may also work at the hematology laboratory viewing blood films and bone marrow slides under the microscope, interpreting various hematological test results and blood clotting test results. In some institutions, hematologists also manage the hematology laboratory. Physicians who work in hematology laboratories, and most commonly manage them, are pathologists specialized in the diagnosis of hematological diseases, referred to as hematopathologists.
Experimental Hematology is a peer-reviewed medical journal of hematology, which publishes original research articles and reviews, as well as the abstracts of the annual proceedings of the Society for Hematology and Stem Cells and they should be done under the Hematology guidelines.
Hematology is the science or study of blood, blood-forming organs and blood diseases. The medical aspect of hematology is concerned with the treatment of blood disorders and malignancies, including types of hemophilia, leukemia, and lymphoma and sickle-cell anemia.
Hematology is a branch of internal medicine that deals with the physiology, pathology, etiology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention of blood-related disorders. Hematologists also focus on lymphatic organs and bone marrow and may diagnose blood count irregularities or platelet irregularities. They are able to treat organs that are fed by blood cells, including the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus and lymphoid tissue.
Hematology nurses are specially trained to provide nursing care for patients with blood diseases or disorders. Some of the more commonly-known blood diseases and disorders a hematology nurse may encounter include: leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia and hemophilia. Hematology nurses initiate a plan of care to manage symptoms that result from such blood problems. Hematology nursing is often closely associated with oncology nursing, and some nurses will help patients with pain management if their cancer is particularly aggressive.
Hematology nurses may work with adults only or specialize in working only with children. Their responsibilities include: taking medical histories, performing examinations, starting IVs and working with physicians to diagnose various blood diseases and disorders. Hematology nurses also educate patients and their families on how to live with and manage their blood disease. They may also assist with blood transfusions, blood tests, research and chemotherapy. Advanced practice hematology nurses have some prescriptive authority and can also order diagnostic lab work done.
Blood tests are done on animals for a variety of reasons. Screening tests, such as a complete blood count (CBC), may be done on clinically normal animals when they are acquired to avoid a financial and/or emotional commitment to a diseased animal, to examine geriatric patients for subclinical disease, or to identify a condition that might make an animal an anesthetic or surgical risk. Screening tests are often done when an ill animal is first examined, especially if systemic signs of illness are present and a specific diagnosis is not apparent from the history and physical examination.
Decisions to request hematology tests in animals are largely based on the cost of the test versus the potential benefit of the result to the animal. A CBC is routinely done to establish a database for patient evaluation, while other hematology tests may be done in an attempt to evaluate a specific problem.
They're sometimes given as a pill, and that they facilitate keep blood clots from breaking down. These medicines most frequently are used before dental work or to treat bleeding from the mouth or nose or gentle intestinal bleeding. Some semisynthetic hormones are accustomed treat people that have gentle hemophilia A.
Currently pharmaceutical firms are involved in the main specializing in Recombinant, genetically engineered pharmaceuticals which may be smart alternative for treatment. If you have got a gentle form of hemophilia, a medicine referred to as desmopressin acetate (DDAVP) will briefly increase the concentration of factor VIII in your blood. DDAVP may be given intravenously, through an injection, or within the type of nasal spray. Antifibrinolytic medicines like tranexamic acid and epsilon aminocaproic acid are that are typically used with replacement therapy to assist keep blood clots from breaking down.
Stem cell therapy is the treatment where stem cells are used to prevent a disease or condition. Hematopoietic stem cells are usually derived from bone marrow, or peripheral blood. Bone marrow transplantation is widely used stem cell therapy. It may be autologous, allogeneic or syngeneic.
Applications of Stem Cell Therapy:
Brain and spinal cord injury
Blood cell formation
Pancreatic beta cells
A scientific examination of a sample of blood, generally advised by the physician for the diagnosis of illness, for the detection and measurement of drugs, assess your general state of health, to assess the functioning of the certain organs such as liver and kidneys.
Types of blood test:
Complete Blood Count
Kidney Test: Renal Profile
Cholesterol Test: Lipid Profile
Blood Glucose Test
Liver Function Test
Blood Clotting Test
It is a branch of medicine that deals with the cause, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the diseases related to blood of infants, children and adolescents. Pediatric hematologists/Oncologists are specially trained to treat children with blood disorders and cancer.
Sickle Cell Disease
Congenital Amegakaryocytic Thrombocytopenia
Pediatric factor VII & XIII diseases
Hereditary disorders of red cells permeability
Decrease in hemoglobin level or red blood cells count in blood leads to Anemia. The symptoms include: Irritability, Palpitations, Breathlessness, Tingling, Glossitis (inflammation or infection of the tongue), Angina, Angular cheilitis (inflammatory lesions at the mouth's corners), Poor appetite, Dysphagia due to formation of esophageal webs (Plummer-Vinson syndrome), numbness, or burning sensations, Restless legs syndrome. If left untreated it leads to heart failure, arrhythmias and frequent infections.
Iron deficiency anemia
Vitamin deficiency anemia
Anemia of chronic disease
Anemia associated with bone marrow disease
Sickle cell anemia
Hemochromatosis is a disease where excess iron is accumulated in the body by any cause. Commonly affected organs by hemochromatosis are heart, endocrine glands and liver. It can be diagnosed by Ferritin test, Liver function test, Iron test, UIBC, TIBC and Transferrin test. Hemochromatosis may present with the following clinical syndromes: Liver Cirrhosis, Arthritis, Testicular Failure, Joint and bone pain and Cardiomyopathy.
