NSH webinar IHC for Leukemia/Lymphomas presented by Dr. Madhu Menon, PhD, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit
1-2 p.m. EDT, April 22
The diagnosis of leukemia and lymphoma in the current era is highly complex requiring integration of morphology, immunophenotype and molecular data. Immunohistochemistry is vital for accurate diagnosis as well as subclassification of leukemias and lymphomas. Along with morphology, immunohistochemistry in lymphoma diagnosis does not just equate to positive and negative staining but also provides relevant information pertaining to immuno-architecture. This lecture will provide basic information pertaining to the indication and use of immunostains in leukemia and lymphomas.

By Cait Harrison
Call it a new form of academic cheating. Peer reviews for scholarly journals have come under the spotlight lately — and the future isn't looking so bright. U.K.-based publisher BioMed Central recently retracted 43 scientific and medical articles because of peer reviews written by people who forged scientists' names. These instances of research fraud are rare, but they're becoming more common with an increase in technology as well as pressure on scholars to get published. What can journals do to prevent the chance of something like this happening again?

UV light robot to clean hospital rooms could help stop spread of 'superbugs'

Can a robot clean a hospital room just as well as a person? According to new research out of the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, that is indeed the case. Dr. Chetan Jinadatha, M.P.H., assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Medicine and chief of infectious diseases at the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System in Temple, is studying the effectiveness of a germ-zapping robot to clean hospital rooms, which could hold the key to preventing the spread of "superbugs" — in turn, saving countless dollars and, most importantly, lives.
