The Effects of Indirect- and Direct-Acting Anticoagulants on Lupus Anticoagulant Assays: A Large, Retrospective Study at a Coagulation Reference Laboratory.
Abstract Objectives: To investigate the effects of indirect- and direct-acting anticoagulants on the interpretation of lupus anticoagulant (LAC) assays. Methods: A retrospective database review was performed to identify all LAC panels from November 2012 to November 2015. The positivity rates for three LAC tests were compared among various anticoagulant medications. Results: This analysis included 7,721 LAC panels. Direct oral anticoagulants, warfarin, and unfractionated heparin (UFH) were associated with higher LAC positivity rates compared with patients not receiving documented anticoagulation (83% for ...

Diagnostic Performance of Ultrasound-Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration of Nonpalpable Breast Lesions in a Multidisciplinary Setting: The Institut Curie's Experience.
ijanienko J Abstract Objectives: To assess the diagnostic performance of ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (USFNA) in nonpalpable breast lesions (NPBLs) in a multidisciplinary setting. Methods: In total, 2,601 NPBLs underwent USFNA by a radiologist-pathologist team. Gold-standard diagnosis was based on surgery, core-needle biopsy, or 1-year imaging follow-up. USFNA's diagnostic performance was analyzed in different clinical and imaging subgroups. Results: USFNA's sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) were, respectively, 92.6% (95% confidence...

A Limited Immunohistochemical Panel Can Subtype Hepatocellular Adenomas for Routine Practice.
Conclusions: Inflammatory and β-catenin-activated adenomas were readily identified by immunostaining patterns. These findings reinforce the necessity of immunohistochemistry in classifying adenomas, as assessing morphology alone often provided inaccurate subclassification. β-Catenin-activated and inflammatory adenomas can be accurately diagnosed using only a limited panel of widely available immunostains.

Determination of VH Family Usage in B-Cell Malignancies via the BIOMED-2 IGH PCR Clonality Assay.
Conclusions: We have developed an algorithm that can correctly assign V H family usage when all three BIOMED-2 framework reactions produced clonal products. Given the wide adoption of BIOMED-2 assay, the algorithm can facilitate collection of IGH V H usage data without additional cost to the laboratories.

Using the Modified Magee Equation to Identify Patients Unlikely to Benefit From the 21-Gene Recurrence Score Assay (Oncotype DX Assay).
This study aimed to compare a modified Magee equation with Oncotype DX (Genomic Health, Redwood City, CA) recurrence score (RS) and identify patients who are unlikely to benefit from Oncotype DX. Methods: Magee equation RS was calculated in 438 cases and correlated with Oncotype DX RS. Results: The Pearson correlation coefficient ( r ) for the Magee equation and Oncotype DX RS was 0.6645 ( P

Comparison of the Mutational Profiles of Primary Myelofibrosis, Polycythemia Vera, and Essential Thrombocytosis.
Conclusions: PMF, PV, and ET show different mutational profiles, which may be helpful in resolving the differential diagnosis between MPNs. Due to the relatively small number of cases and variable testing over time, larger controlled studies are necessary to confirm the findings.

CD4-Negative Variant of Cutaneous Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm With a Novel PBRM1 Mutation in an 11-Year-Old Girl.
Conclusions: CD4- variant of BPDCN may be mistaken for myeloid sarcoma or extramedullary lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma because of their overlapping morphologic and immunophenotypic features; thus, a careful clinicopathologic evaluation is essential to reach the correct diagnosis. PBRM1 mutation seems to be a driver event in this case. Our study underscores the importance of alterations in chromatin remodeling in the pathogenesis of BPDCN.

Bile Cast Nephropathy in Cirrhotic Patients: Effects of Chronic Hyperbilirubinemia.
Conclusions: To our knowledge, this is the largest study of BCN in human subjects and a first report describing the association of BCN with HCV-related cirrhosis. We demonstrated that in the face of protracted chronic hyperbilirubinemia, bile casts are formed at much lower bilirubin levels than previously thought. Furthermore, we proposed an algorithm to assist in better identification of bile casts. PMID: 28398539 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: American Journal of Clinical Pathology)
