Diagnostic Significance of Cell Kinetic Parameters in World Health Organization Type A and B3 Thymomas and Thymic Carcinomas
The prognostic importance of histologic classifications of thymic epithelial neoplasms is controversial. Evidence suggests that difficulties in reproducibility affect prognostic studies. A recent article in Human Pathology by Mayo Clinic, first author Anja Roden, M.D., addresses the diagnostic significant of cell kinetic parameters in type A or B3 thymoma and thymic carcinomas.

In the November issue of Clinical Biochemistry, Mayo Clinic researchers, first author Leslie Donato, Ph.D., conducted a study to assess the performance of two point of care (POC) devices for capillary lipid screening in fasting and post-prandial adults.
Short transverse myelitis is considered non-characteristic of neuromyelitis optica (NMO) spectrum disorders (NMOSDs). Mayo Clinic researchers conducted a study, recently published in Jama Neurology, to determine the frequency of short lesions at the initial myelitis manifestation of NMOSD and to compare the demographic, clinical, and radiological characteristics of aquaporin-4-IgG (AQP4-IgG) seropositive and seronegative STM.
