Health News - Genetics

New hope for rare disease drug development - Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 1A disease (CMT1A)
Using combinations of well-known approved drugs has for the first time been shown to be potentially safe in treating a rare disease, according to the results of a clinical trial published in the... (Medical News Today)

UK project paves way for clinical genetic diagnosis: Thousands of families will benefit from pioneering programme for diagnosing rare diseases
A pioneering programme for diagnosing the genetic cause of rare developmental diseases in children has demonstrated the feasibility and value of introducing large-scale sequencing diagnostics into... (Medical News Today)

Cancer genes contribute to congenital disorders
Cancer genes may also be responsible for the development of congenital disorders. (Medical News Today)

New colorectal cancer risk factor identified
Adiponectin, a collagen-like protein secreted by fat cells, derives from the ADIPOQ gene. Variations in this gene may increase risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and various cancers. (Medical News Today)

Novel agent decreases neuropathic pain in patients with type 2 diabetes
Molecular Medicine, a peer-reviewed biomedical journal published by the Feinstein Institute Press, published the results of a new study reporting clinically significant pain reduction in type 2... (Medical News Today)

Mutations in GTPBP3 cause a mitochondrial translation defect associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and encephalopathy
Diseases of dysfunctional mitochondria (aka mitochondrial diseases) are relatively rare with prevalence of 1/2000-4000. (Medical News Today)

Networks of genetic changes across cancers identified by algorithm
Cancers often involve far more than a genetic mutation acting alone. Multiple mutations, many of which are rare, may occur in different networks of multiple genes. (Medical News Today)

Sexual crimes may be solved using microbial 'signature' from pubic hairs
Bacterial communities living on an individual's pubic hairs could be used as a microbial 'signature' to trace their involvement in sexual assault cases, according to a study published in the open... (Medical News Today)

Discovery of on-off switch for key stem cell gene may propel advances in regenerative medicine
Consider the relationship between an air traffic controller and a pilot. The pilot gets the passengers to their destination, but the air traffic controller decides when the plane can take off and... (Medical News Today)

Current practices in reporting on behavioural genetics can mislead the public
"Media reports about behavioural genetics unintentionally induce unfounded beliefs, therefore going against the educational purpose of scientific reporting," writes the University of Montreal's... (Medical News Today)

Are you genetically predisposed to antisocial behaviour?
Both positive and negative experiences influence how genetic variants affect the brain and thereby behaviour, according to a new study. (Medical News Today)

Researchers uncover a mechanism regulating dopamine levels in the brain
Researchers in Montreal led by Jacques Drouin, D.Sc., uncovered a mechanism regulating dopamine levels in the brain by working on a mouse model of late onset Parkinson's disease. (Medical News Today)

Malaria drug resistance in Southeast Asia caused by a single mutated gene in the disease-causing parasite
Growing resistance to malaria drugs in Southeast Asia is caused by a single mutated gene inside the disease-causing Plasmodium falciparum parasite, according to a study led by David Fidock, PhD... (Medical News Today)

The unique genetics of women used to uncover neurologic disorders
Using a basic genetic difference between men and women, the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) has uncovered a way to track down the source of a neurological disorder in a young girl. (Medical News Today)

Big data tool developed to better classify tumor cells and guide personalized cancer treatments
New statistical model allows better identification of different cell types found in solid tumors to enable more targeted treatment options. (Medical News Today)

Fat cell decoding discovery may explain why we gain weight
University of Rochester researchers believe they're on track to solve the mystery of weight gain - and it has nothing to do with indulging in holiday eggnog. (Medical News Today)

How fast you age depends on your parents
In the hunt for better knowledge on the aging process, researchers from Lund University have now enlisted the help of small birds. (Medical News Today)

DNA barcoding used to check authenticity of Ginkgo biloba, other popular herbal supplements
Dr. Damon Little, Associate Curator of Bioinformatics in the Cullman Program for Molecular Systematics at The New York Botanical Garden, has just published a new study in the journal Genome... (Medical News Today)

Cells can build a communication system that can function in the presence of so much noise
Scientists have discovered a general principle for how cells could accurately transmit chemical signals despite high levels of noise in the system which they report in the journal Science. (Medical News Today)

A story of birdsong and human speech told by genes
His office is filled with all sorts of bird books, but Duke neuroscientist Erich Jarvis didn't become an expert on the avian family tree because of any particular interest in our feathered friends. (Medical News Today)

Study highlights importance of nutritional immunity in fighting infectious disease
Examination of DNA from 21 primate species - from squirrel monkeys to humans - exposes an evolutionary war against infectious bacteria over iron that circulates in the host's bloodstream. (Medical News Today)

Better understanding of how viruses replicate and role of telomeres in stopping viruses
A team of scientists, led by researchers at The Wistar Institute, has found that an infection with herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) causes rearrangements in telomeres, small stretches of DNA that serve... (Medical News Today)

A new form of genetic regulation revealed by the mapping of the human loop-ome
The ancient Japanese art of origami is based on the idea that nearly any design - a crane, an insect, a samurai warrior - can be made by taking the same blank sheet of paper and folding it in... (Medical News Today)

Human exposure to metal cadmium may accelerate cellular aging
A new study led by a researcher at Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) at the George Washington University looks at the metal cadmium and finds that higher human exposure... (Medical News Today)

New mechanism identified which gives a better understanding of cancer development
A Danish Research Team identified a molecular mechanism that ensures that when cells divide, the genomic material passes correctly to the resulting daughter cells:Microscopic view of a human cell... (Medical News Today)
