Why do Labrador retrievers love food so much?
Labrador and flat-coat retrievers are particularly fond of food and are inclined to be obese. Understanding the genetic mutation underlying this could help treat human obesity. (Medical News Today)

Does freeze-thawing and IV delivery affect the therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stromal cells?
Before the therapeutic potential of using human tissue-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) to treat immune and degenerative diseases can be fully determined, the effects of freeze-thawing and... (Medical News Today)

Personalized breast cancer treatment steps closer with gene discovery
Researchers have shed light on which gene mutations and mutational signatures drive breast cancer development, bringing us closer to personalized treatment for the disease. (Medical News Today)

Choroideremia gene therapy gives long-lasting improvements to vision
Patients who took part in the world's first gene therapy clinical trial for choroideremia have had a real and long-lasting improvement in vision. (Medical News Today)

Mapping somatic mutations in breast cancer whole genomes
The most comprehensive analysis to date of somatic (acquired) mutations, across whole-genome sequences for breast cancer, is reported in a paper published this week in Nature. (Medical News Today)

Happiness genes located for the first time
For the first time, from a genome-wide analysis of nearly 300,000 people, scientists have located gene variants associated with subjective well-being, depression, and neuroticism. (Medical News Today)

Shape of tumor may affect whether cells can metastasize
Only a few cells in a cancerous tumor are able to break away and spread to other parts of the body, but the curve along the edge of the tumor may play a large role in activating these tumor-seeding... (Medical News Today)

New gene testing technology finds cancer risks 'hiding in plain sight'
A research team led by an award-winning genomicist at Western University has developed a new method for identifying mutations and prioritizing variants in breast and ovarian cancer genes, which will... (Medical News Today)

A long-noncoding RNA regulates repair of DNA breaks in triple-negative breast cancer cells
Findings give 'new insight' into biology of tough-to-treat breast cancer.The discovery of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) has dramatically changed the understanding of the biology of diseases such... (Medical News Today)

'Youth gene' identified by researchers
Researchers have pinned down a particular genetic variation that plays a role in defining whether you look older or younger than your years. (Medical News Today)
