Sep. 16, 2016 — With the addition of four new reference materials (RMs) to a growing collection of 'measuring sticks' for gene sequencing, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can now ... read more

Drug-Loaded Synthetic Nanoparticles Can Distinguish Lung Cancer Cells from Healthy Cells

Sep. 15, 2016 — A synthetic polymer that can transport a drug into lung cancer cells without going inside of normal lung cells has now been successfully developed by scientists, a new report ... read more

Brain Cancer and Leukemia: New Molecular Mechanisms Decoded

Sep. 14, 2016 — New molecular causes of brain cancer and leukemia have been revealed by new research. This research provided insight into the effect of mutations of enzymes involved in the development of these ... read more

Sep. 9, 2016 — Tumors also differ among patients with the same type of cancer, so how is a physician able to prescribe a tailored regimen for the patient? Researchers approach to infer the evolutionary track of ... read more

Case for Liquid Biopsies Builds in Advanced Lung Cancer

Sep. 9, 2016 — For patients with advanced lung cancer, a non-invasive liquid biopsy may be a more effective and suitable alternative to the gold standard tissue biopsy to detect clinically relevant mutations and ... read more

Computerized Tissue Image Analysis Reveals Underlying Genomics of ER+ Breast Cancer

Sep. 7, 2016 — The number of tubules in tumors may predict which women with estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer will benefit from hormone therapy alone and which require chemotherapy. A computer program ... read more

Sep. 6, 2016 — Changes in the genetic make-up of tissue samples can be detected quickly and easily using a new method based on nanotechnology. A new study in first clinical tests with genetic mutations in patients ... read more

Gene Defect as a Potential Gateway for Targeted Prostate Cancer Therapy

Sep. 5, 2016 — The loss of CHD1, one of the most frequently mutated genes in prostate tumors, sensitizes human prostate cancer cells to different drugs, including PARP inhibitors. This suggests CHD1 as a potential ... read more

Study Opens Door to Targeted Treatments for Esophageal Cancer

Sep. 5, 2016 — Esophageal cancer can be classified into three different subtypes, paving the way for testing targeted treatments tailored to patients' disease for the first time, scientists have ... read more

Novel Culprit for Type 2 Diabetes Gene at Well-Established Genomic Location

Aug. 31, 2016 — Gene researchers have used sophisticated scientific tools to reveal a new gene for type 2 diabetes at a well-established genomic location. Because this gene codes for a protein that regulates how the ... read more

Single Gene Mutation Causes Severely Debilitating Disease of Brain Blood Vessels

Aug. 29, 2016 — The cause of a disease that targets blood vessels in the brain -- leading to multiple debilitating symptoms and, often, to early death -- has been tracked to a single mutated gene, opening up the ... read more

Aug. 29, 2016 — Breast cancer researchers have discovered that mutations found outside of genes that accumulate in estrogen receptor positive breast tumors throughout their development act as dominant culprits ... read more

Asthma Risk Increases When Child Had Bronchiolitis

Aug. 24, 2016 — Asthma risk increased 17 times when children who had bronchiolitis in the first two years of life also had a common variation of the Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 gene, new research ... read more
