“Based on these new findings, we may be able to predict who will respond better and tailor immunologic therapies for patients for optimum response.” Dr. Caimi’s team also had two other related posters which used the same patient cohort to further determine risk stratification in DBCL patients. In Abstract #3611, they showed that patients who experienced venous thrombotic events after diagnosis had poorer outcomes and also validated a method to identify patients at risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs). In Abstract #1863, the researchers found that DBCL patients older than 75 have a higher mortality risk following diagnosis. These patients respond equally well to treatment but have additional risk for complications such as heart attacks and blood clots. “These studies in total provide us with important new information on how to modify treatments for certain patients,” says Dr. Caimi, who is also Assistant Professor at the School of Medicine. “For lymphoma patients at risk for clotting and those over age 75, we are better able to provide targeted therapies to improve long-term outcomes.” Additional information on UH Seidman Cancer Center/ School of Medicine Presentations: Abstract #1146 Rethinking Risk-Benefit Assessment for Phase I Multiple Myeloma Trials Monday, December 5, 2016: 5:45 PM Authors: Akiva Diamond, MD, Sabarish Ram Ayyappan, MBBS, Raisa Pinto, MD, Ehsan Malek, MD, Ben K.

Law enforcement officers across New Mexico will soon be required to undergo training on how to use evidence kits in rapes and other sexual assault cases and how to apply DNA findings to their investigations. Officials with the state Department of Public Safety and victim advocacy groups announced the new training Tuesday. It will start in January for officers who are certified in New Mexico and will be a part of the law enforcement academy’s curriculum going forward. The announcement comes as the state grapples with a backlog of thousands of untested evidence kits. State Auditor Tim Keller’s office spent the past year querying law enforcement agencies around the state about their policies for handling the kits. The resulting audit found that a lack of resources, training and attitudes about the credibility of victims are partly to blame for kits going untested. ___ 9 a.m. A lack of human and financial resources is partly to blame for New Mexico’s backlog of more than 5,400 untested evidence kits from rapes and other sexual assaults. State Auditor Tim Keller has released the findings from a special review aimed at identifying practices that led to the untested kits languishing in evidence vaults around the state. Albuquerque’s crime lab still carries the bulk of the backlog, with about 73 percent of the untested kits.
