Health News - Genetics

Ebola gene study traces origin of current outbreak
The genomes of Ebola currently raging in West Africa likely began with one leap to humans, and differ from genomes of previous outbreaks by over 300 mutations, says a new study. (Medical News Today)

Newly discovered gene changes in Crohn's disease can be detected in blood samples
Genetic changes that occur in patients with the bowel condition Crohn's disease could hold clues to fighting the illness. (Medical News Today)

Animal study reduces harmful accumulation of proteins in lysosomal storage disease
Treating the rare disease MPS I is a challenge. MPS I, caused by the deficiency of a key enzyme called IDUA, eventually leads to the abnormal accumulation of certain molecules and cell death. (Medical News Today)

Diabetes study finds hidden 'obesity' genes
People who are obese and have type 2 diabetes are often told that overeating and a sedentary lifestyle are the main causes of their condition. (Medical News Today)

Probing cancer's molecular make-up
Scientists have shown how to better identify and measure vital molecules that control cell behaviour - paving the way for improved tools for diagnosis, prediction and monitoring of cancer. (Medical News Today)

The epigenetic signature could be key to glioblastoma's therapeutic resistance
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have found one of the keys to why certain glioblastomas - the primary form of a deadly brain cancer - are resistant to drug... (Medical News Today)

New approach developed to identify 'drivers' of cancer
UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have developed a new integrated approach to pinpoint the genetic "drivers" of cancer, uncovering eight genes that could be viable for targeted... (Medical News Today)

Predicting aggressive lymphoma by statistical genetic analysis
Each year, more than one thousand Norwegians develop lymphoma. A statistical genetic analysis can detect when the disease will be aggressive. Thereby, treatment can be initiated in time. (Medical News Today)

Leukemia and other cancers could be treated more effectively with drug used for DNA repair defects
A team of scientists led by Research Associate Professor Motomi Osato and Professor Yoshiaki Ito from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI Singapore) at the National University of Singapore... (Medical News Today)

Study shows a direct correlation between smoking and mortality
A study based on blood samples from more than 55,000 Danes conducted by the University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen University Hospital shows a direct correlation between smoking and mortality. (Medical News Today)

Insights into the cancer epigenome have implications for treatment, prevention
Regardless of their stage or type, cancers appear to share a telltale signature of widespread changes to the so-called epigenome, according to a team of researchers. (Medical News Today)

Unique prostate cancer treatment programs could be tailored using RNA sequencing
Sequencing RNA, not just DNA, could help doctors predict how prostate cancer tumors will respond to treatment, according to research published in the open access journal Genome Biology. (Medical News Today)

Retinal thinning can be used as an early marker for frontotemporal dementia, prior to the onset of cognitive symptoms
Researchers at the Gladstone Institutes and University of California, San Francisco have shown that a loss of cells in the retina is one of the earliest signs of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) in... (Medical News Today)

Neanderthals and modern humans co-existed for thousands of years
A new study finds evidence that Neanderthals lived in Europe at the same time as modern humans for up to 5,400 years and suggests they died out gradually and not all at once. (Medical News Today)

A decade-long effort in genetic engineering is close to re-programming yeast cells to make palliative medicines in stainless steel vats
For centuries poppy plants have been grown to provide opium, the compound from which morphine and other important medicines such as oxycodone are derived. (Medical News Today)

Epigenetic changes found in children with Crohn's disease
A host of new clues on gene-environment interactions in Crohn's diseaseA new study finds a wide range of epigenetic changes - alterations in DNA across the genome that may be related to key... (Medical News Today)

Neural apoptosis inhibited by recombinant adenovirus-mediated DHCR24
3β-Hydroxysteroid-Delta24 reductase (DHCR24) is a multifunctional enzyme that localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and has neuroprotective and cholesterol-synthesizing activities. (Medical News Today)

High concordance between EGFR mutations from circulating-free tumor DNA and tumor tissue in non-small cell lung cancer
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations found in the circulating free tumor DNA (ctDNA) from the plasma of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients correlates well with the EGFR... (Medical News Today)

Novel oncogenic RET mutation found in small cell lung cancer
For the first time an oncogenic somatic mutation at amino acid 918 in the RET (rearranged during transfection) protein has been identified in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) tumors and enforced... (Medical News Today)

DNA test for congenital cataracts leads to faster, more accurate diagnoses of rare diseases linked to childhood blindness
Researchers in the United Kingdom have demonstrated that advanced DNA testing for congenital cataracts can quickly and accurately diagnose a number of rare diseases marked by childhood blindness... (Medical News Today)

Unique alterations involving telomerase revealed by sequencing of rare kidney cancer
An international scientific collaboration led by Baylor College of Medicine has revealed clues about genetic alterations that may contribute to a rare form of kidney cancer, providing new insights... (Medical News Today)

Genetics and lifestyle have a strong impact on biomarkers for inflammation and cancer
In a new study published in Nature Communications, research scientists from Uppsala University present for the first time a large-scale study of the significance of genetic, clinical and lifestyle... (Medical News Today)

Seals and sea lions may have carried tuberculosis to the Americas
Grade school history lessons often have it that American Indians largely were wiped out by diseases such as whooping cough, chicken pox, influenza and tuberculosis brought to the New World by... (Medical News Today)

Genetic 'recipe' for how lizards regenerate their tails may impact future therapies for spinal cord injuries
By understanding the secret of how lizards regenerate their tails, researchers may be able to develop ways to stimulate the regeneration of limbs in humans. (Medical News Today)

Previously hidden causes of brain malformation identified by new gene technique
Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) scientists have developed a strategy for finding disease-causing mutations that lurk in only a small fraction of the body's cells. (Medical News Today)
