إكتشفت Mayo Clinic أن الطفرات الجينيّة ترتبط بسرطان البنكرياس وتستدعي إجراء اختبارات موسعة

Mayo Clinic

روتشستر، مينيسوتا. — هناك ستة من الجينات الوراثية تحتوي على طفرات جينيّة يُمكن أن يتوارثها أفراد الأسرة الواحدة وتزيد بشكل كبير من خطر تعرُّض الشخص للإصابة بسرطان البنكرياس. وذلك وفقًا لأحـد البحوث الصادرة عن Mayo Clinic والمنشورة في إصدار التاسع عشر من يونيو من JAMA. على الرغم من ذلك، فقد اكتشف الباحثون وجود تلك الطفرات الوراثية في مرضى لا تُعاني عائلاتهم من أي تاريخ سابق للإصابة بسرطان البنكرياس، ولذلك فإنهم يوصون بإجراء اختبارات جينيّة لجميع مرضى سرطان البنكرياس كمعيار جديد للرعاية.

The Immune System: Cracking Open the Black Box

American Technion Society

A technology developed at Israel's Technion will provide the scientific community with novel tools to gain a comprehensive understanding of immune system activity. Based on millions of scientific publications, the technology uses artificial intelligence to map disease immune profiles. These maps, which have already identified previously unknown biological interactions, will enable development of personalized, immuno-centric therapies

Researchers Uncover New Target to Stop Cancer Growth

The Rockefeller University Press

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have discovered that a protein called Munc13-4 helps cancer cells secrete large numbers of exosomes—tiny, membrane-bound packages containing proteins and RNAs that stimulate tumor progression. The study, which will be published June 21 in the Journal of Cell Biology, could lead to new therapies that stop tumor growth and metastasis by halting exosome production.

Mayo Clinic Discovers Gene Mutations Linked to Pancreatic Cancer, Calls for Expanded Testing

Mayo Clinic

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Six genes contain mutations that may be passed down in families, substantially increasing a person’s risk for pancreatic cancer. That's according to Mayo Clinic research published in the June 19 edition of the JAMA. However, because researchers found these genetic mutations in patients with no family history of pancreatic cancer, they are recommending genetic testing for all pancreatic cancer patients as the new standard of care.
