Although bone marrow stem cell transplantation is an option for some, patients without a matched donor have few treatment options....

Platelets are small cells that circulate in the blood and are key to the processes of blood clotting and wound healing. In this genome-wide study, the team used a multidisciplinary approach to successfully identify new genetic variants involved in the formation of...
