Nathan Boggs, MD, PhD, an assistant professor of medicine at the Uniformed Services University who is engaged in systemic mastocytosis (SM) translational research, helped Mark Withers, MD, obtain a definitive diagnosis of SM after 20-plus years. Tracy George, MD, ARUP Laboratories president and chief scientific officer, has led the effort to develop highly sensitive tests at ARUP that aid in the diagnosis of SM and has played a key role in clinical trials for emerging treatments.
For 20-plus years, Mark Withers had inexplicable episodes of a severe anaphylaxis-like phenomenon. ARUP’s unique expertise and highly sensitive tests help patients like him find the right diagnosis.
