Low plasma haptoglobin in march haemoglobinuria

Journal of Clinical Pathology
R B Payne


A student had haemoglobin in the urine after running but not after cycling. The haemoglobinuria was related to the hardness of the surface on which he ran and to his running style. The concentration of haptoglobin in his plasma was less than normal. This was most pronounced after he had been running, when haptoglobin had combined with free haemoglobin, but the concentration was also low when there had been no haemolysis for six weeks. Thus two factors combined to give him haemoglobinuria: lysis of red cells by mechanical damage and lack of haptoglobin to combine with liberated haemoglobin.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
