Penn Pioneer in Personalized Medicine Advocates that National Translational Medicine Consortia is Best Equipped to Drive Human Phenotyping for the Clinic

Penn translational med pioneer advocates that to “influence emergence of the clinic of the future, one designed to practice precision medicine,” an NIH plan to establish large-scale collaborative clinical trials needs also to pay better attention to three areas of emerging practice: adaptive clinical trials, merging EMRs and biobanks, and human phenotyping.

Investigational Personalized Cellular Therapy Tolerated Well by Patients with Advanced Mesothelioma, Ovarian and Pancreatic Cancers

Genetically modified versions of patients’ own immune cells successfully traveled to tumors they were designed to attack in an early-stage trial for mesothelioma and pancreatic and ovarian cancers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The data adds to a growing body of research showing the promise of CAR T cell technology. The interim results will be presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2015, April 18-22.

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey is joining forces with Meridian Health in offering patients with rare forms of cancer or with cancer that no longer responds to standard treatment access to a clinical trial. The research will use genomic analysis to identify abnormal changes in the genetic make-up of the cancer. The clinical trial is part of the ‘precision medicine’ initiative at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, which aims to tailor or ‘personalize’ cancer treatment for patients.

Scientists Pinpoint Molecule That Controls Stem Cell Plasticity by Boosting Gene Expression

631477.image.jpg

Stem cells can have a strong sense of identity. Taken out of their home in the hair follicle, for example, and grown in culture, these cells remain true to themselves. After waiting in limbo, these cultured cells become capable of regenerating follicles and other skin structures once transplanted back into skin. It’s not clear just how these stem cells — and others elsewhere in the body — retain their ability to produce new tissue and heal wounds, even under extraordinary conditions.

Unregulated Web Marketing of Genetic Tests for Personalized Cancer Care Raises Concerns in New Study

Dr.StacyGray.jpg

Websites that market personalized cancer care services often overemphasize their purported benefits and downplay their limitations, and many sites offer genetic tests whose value for guiding cancer treatment has not been shown to be clinically useful, according to a new study from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Researchers have just released a “precision medicine” approach to diabetes prevention that could keep more people from joining the ranks of the 29 million Americans with diabetes – using existing information like blood sugar levels and waist-to-hip ratios, and without needing new genetic tests.
