Confidence, knowledge, and skills at the beginning of residency: a survey of pathology residents.
CONCLUSIONS: Respondents gained exposure to pathology primarily through elective rotations, and most felt the elective experience prepared them for pathology residency. However, elective time may be enhanced by providing opportunities for students to increase hands-on experience and understanding of resident duties.

Cytogenetic and Flow Cytometry Evaluation of Richter Syndrome Reveals MYC, CDKN2A, IGH Alterations With Loss of CD52, CD62L and Increase of CD71 Antigen Expression as the Most Frequent Recurrent Abnormalities.
CONCLUSIONS: Newly diagnosed RS is an oncologic emergency, and a quick diagnostic decision is crucial in clinical practice. Therefore, in patients with CLL/SLL and rapidly enlarging asymmetric lymphadenopathy and/or extranodal tumors, we strongly advise FCM of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) material, including CD62L, CD52, and CD71 analysis as well as assessment of karyotype and at least MYC abnormalities by FISH of the same FNAB material. Loss of CD52 expression in RS most likely predicts resistance to alemtuzumab therapy, which is frequently used in CLL. PMID: 25511139 [PubMed - in process] (Source: American Jo...

Most clinical laboratory testing in kampala occurs in high-volume, high-quality laboratories or low-volume, low-quality laboratories: a tale of two cities.
CONCLUSIONS: Clinical laboratory density in Kampala (1/1,781 persons) is high, approaching that in the United States (1/1,347 persons). Low-volume/low-quality and high-volume/high-quality laboratories do 90% of the daily aggregate testing. Quality improvement (QI) schemes for Africa must be appropriate to low-volume laboratories as well as to the large laboratories that have been the focus of previous QI efforts.

Blood Flow Cytometry in Sézary Syndrome: New Insights on Prognostic Relevance and Immunophenotypic Changes During Follow-up.
CONCLUSIONS: We confirm the relevance of CD26 negativity in SS diagnosis and monitoring. Nevertheless, the presence of rare CD26+ cases suggests that a multiparameter flow cytometry approach should be used. Changes in methylation profile could account for phenotypical heterogeneity.

CONCLUSIONS: Findings suggest that patients with B-cell counts of 5 to 10 × 10(9)/L behave clinically more similar to patients with B-cell counts of less than 5 × 10(9)/L. PMID: 25511144 [PubMed - in process] (Source: American Journal of Clinical Pathology)

Upfront Special Staining for Helicobacter pylori in Gastric Biopsy Specimens Is Not Indicated.
CONCLUSIONS: Upfront staining of gastric biopsy specimens is not cost-effective since a significant proportion of the gastric biopsy specimens were normal or showed minimal inflammation; in none of these biopsy specimens was the organism found. Special stains should be performed only in selected biopsy specimens that reveal any degree of chronic active gastritis or moderate inactive gastritis.

Uncovering bias in the cytologic evaluation of cervical squamous lesions.
CONCLUSIONS: Cytotechnologists are not influenced by an expected number of abnormal Pap cases per day since this would result in deviation toward the mean daily rate of diagnosis. Possible explanations for the unanticipated clustering of SIL interpretations include clinical clustering effects or, alternatively, the influence a SIL interpretation might have on lowering the threshold for this interpretation again in subsequent specimens on the same day. The analysis presented here could serve as a model to detect bias in other aspects of medical decision making. PMID: 25511153 [PubMed - in process] (Source: American Jour...

The Next Chapter in Patient Blood Management: Real-Time Clinical Decision Support.
CONCLUSIONS: We have been able to significantly reduce inappropriate blood transfusions and related costs through an educational initiative coupled with real-time CDS. In deriving increased value out of health care, CDS can be applied to a number of overuse measures in laboratory testing, radiology, and therapy such as antibiotics, as outlined by the American Board of Internal Medicine's Choosing Wisely campaign.

Cancer tracking: clinician compliance and program outcome.
CONCLUSIONS: Confirmation that the physician caring for a patient receives a pathology diagnosis is important for patient management and quality assurance. While the surgical pathology report was placed in the chart, it was impossible to confirm that the responsible physician had reviewed the report in 9% of cases. Techniques for communication and confirmation of transmission of anatomic pathology diagnoses need to be developed.

Circulating donor-specific anti-human leukocyte antigen antibodies and complement c4d deposition are associated with the development of cardiac allograft vasculopathy.
CONCLUSIONS: Compared with the general HTR population, patients with graft dysfunction and DSA or positive C4d on EMB show a statistically significant increased incidence of CAV and allograft failure, suggesting an antibody-mediated injury. The presence of pre- and posttransplant DSA, even in the absence of positive C4d immunofluorescence, may identify a group of HTRs at increased risk of developing CAV.
