Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 49-year-old man who presented to a medical facility with splenomegaly, vertigo, and a high white blood cell (WBC) count. Topics include a diagnosis of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), which is a genetic disorder characterized by the specific cytogenetic translocation t(9;22)(q34;qll.2), or Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome, a bone marrow biopsy, and a fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis indicating BCR/ABL1 gene fusion.

    Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) is typically associated with reciprocal translocation between long arms of chromosome 9 and 22, t (9, 22) (q34; q11.2) and with the formation of a BCR-ABL fusion gene. In a minority of newly diagnosed CML cases, complex cytogenetic variants of the Ph chromosome...

    Background: The BCR/ABL gene rearrangement is generated by a reciprocal translocation t(9;22)(q34;q11) in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. In most cases, it is cytogenetically visualized by the Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome. About 5-10% of CML patients lack cytogenetic evidence of the Ph...

    BACKGROUND The swim-up and hyaluronan (HA)-binding methods are used for the selection of good quality spermatozoa to improve pregnancy rates and embryo quality and to reduce the number of miscarriages after IVF. We evaluated whether the processing of sperm by these methods reduces the frequency...
