Updated recommendations for the treatment of venous thromboembolism
Blood Res. 2021 Feb 23. doi: 10.5045/br.2021.2020083. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTVenous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, is a condition characterized by abnormal blood clot formation in the pulmonary arteries and the deep venous vasculature. It is often serious and sometimes even fatal if not promptly and appropriately treated. Moreover, the later consequences of VTE may result in reduced quality of life. The treatment of VTE depends on various factors, including the type, cause, and patient comorbidities. Furthermore, bleeding may occur as a side effect of VTE treatment...

Optimal panel of immunohistochemistry for the diagnosis of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma using bone marrow biopsy: a tertiary care center study.
Conclusion: We propose a two-tier approach for immunophenotypic analysis of newly diagnosed Bcell NHL cases with a minimum primary panel including CD5, CD23, CD79, Kappa, and Lambda for differentiation into CLL/non-CLL group and Kappa and Lambda for clonality assessment. An extended panel may be used wherever required for further subtyping of non-CLL. PMID: 33504685 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Blood Research)

First report of the unique expression of RECAF (receptor for alfa feto-protein) in adult B-NHL/CLL patients.
Conclusion: RECAF is significantly expressed in the BM of NHL/chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients. RECAF shows a unique expression pattern among the different subtypes of LPD. Furthermore, RECAF may help to detect bone marrow infiltration in lymphoma cells. This may help in the diagnosis, follow-up, and targeting of LPD.

Safety and efficacy analysis of ibrutinib in 32 patients with CLL and various B-cell lymphomas: real-world data from a single-center study in Turkey.
Conclusion: Ibrutinib is a good treatment option for CLL and other B-cell lymphomas, with an acceptable side effect profile, and high and promising CR/PR response rates. Ibrutinib treatment at an early stage decreases the burden of cytotoxic therapy in fragile patients, thereby, increasing their quality of life.

Utility of screening tools to differentiate beta thalassemia trait and iron-deficiency anemia - do they serve a purpose in blood donors?
Conclusion: A moderately high prevalence of BTT was observed among blood donors. Presently, no screening program is mandatory for screening of BTT among blood donors. Indices like MCV, MCH, and Mentzer Index were thus found to be effective to screen for BTT and IDA among blood donors, and NESTROFT was a cost-effective mass screening method to differentiate BTT and IDA.
