Decision Support Tool Boosts Genetic Testing Knowledge in Breast Cancer Patients

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Genetic testing for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients can help guide treatment and identify whether family members are at increased risk, but many patients aren't aware of these benefits. A new study shows that decision support tools used in tandem with genetic counselors can help patients understand.

Sequencing RNA in 20,000 Cardiac Cells Reveals Insights into Heart Development and Disease

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Scientists using a powerful new technology that sequences RNA in 20,000 individual cell nuclei have uncovered new insights into biological events in heart disease. In animal hearts, the researchers identified an array of cell types and investigated the “transcriptional landscape” in rich detail.

UCLA researchers discover aggressive prostate and lung cancers are driven by common mechanisms

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers have discovered a common process in the development of late-stage, small cell cancers of the prostate and lung. These shared molecular mechanisms could lead to the development of drugs to treat not just prostate and lung cancers, but small cell cancers of almost any organ.

Amputation injury is communicated to opposing limbs

Tufts University

In research that extends knowledge about the physiology of regeneration and wound repair, Tufts University biologists have discovered that amputation of one limb is immediately reflected in the bioelectric properties of the contralateral, or opposing, un-damaged limb of developing frogs.

Chemotherapy May Lead to Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Skeletal Muscle

American Physiological Society (APS)

Chemotherapy drugs to treat breast cancer may promote muscle mitochondrial dysfunction, according to new research. Dysfunctional mitochondria, the energy centers of the cells, may contribute to fatigue and weakness that some people with breast cancer experience through the course of disease treatment. The study is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Cell Physiology.

Solving a medical mystery: Cause of rare type of dwarfism discovered

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

For children born with Saul-Wilson syndrome, and their parents, much of their lives are spent searching for answers. First defined in 1990, only 14 cases are known worldwide. Today, these individuals have answers. A study published today in the American Journal of Human Genetics, has uncovered the cause of Saul-Wilson syndrome.

Viruses in Blood Lead to Digestive Problems

Washington University in St. Louis

Some people suffer unpredictable bouts of abdominal pain and constipation. A new study in mice, from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, shows that viruses that target the nervous system can kill neurons in the gut that coordinate the process of moving waste along. Such viruses may be involved in causing people's digestive woes.

Analysis Reveals Genomic Effects of a New Cancer Treatment Now in Clinical Trials

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

A twist on the molecular mechanism of how a new cancer drug works could aid in better identifying the best treatments for patients for an array of cancers. The team identified over 500 sites in DNA that require an enzyme called ATR checkpoint kinase to not break when they are replicated.

UIC receives Department of Defense grant to lead clinical trial of stem cell therapy for eye injuries

University of Illinois at Chicago

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have received a four-year, $5.25 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to lead a multi-site clinical trial to test the efficacy of a stem cell-based treatment for eye injuries.The treatment uses mesenchymal stem cells — cells that can differentiate into fat, bone or cartilage, but which also produce an abundance of anti-inflammatory factors that have been shown to speed healing and reduce scaring in experimental models of eye injury.
