How mood and stress reduce lifespan
The way people respond to stress and mood disorders can shorten lifespan. A thorough piece of research may have pinned down one of the genes responsible. (Medical News Today)

Neuroscientists illuminate role of autism-linked gene
A new study from MIT neuroscientists reveals that a gene mutation associated with autism plays a critical role in the formation and maturation of synapses - the connections that allow neurons to... (Medical News Today)

Deadly brain cancer genes identified
Glioblastoma multiforme is an aggressive form of brain tumor. Researchers find a genetic signature that may help improve future treatment and extend life. (Medical News Today)

New study surveys genetic changes linked with Parkinson's disease
After Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease (PD) is the leading neurodegenerative disorder, affecting close to a million Americans, with 50,000 new cases diagnosed every year. (Medical News Today)

Cannabis use alters DNA to increase disease risk, study says
Chemicals in cannabis alter DNA, causing gene mutations that may increase the risk of cancer and other diseases, a new study suggests. (Medical News Today)

Research revealing early changes at epigenetic level points to possible new prevention strategies for ovarian cancer
The discovery of early changes in the cells of the Fallopian tubes of women carrying the BRCA genetic mutation could open the way for new preventative strategies for ovarian cancer, reducing the... (Medical News Today)

Loss of Y chromosome in blood cells associated with developing Alzheimer's disease: New research could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease (AD), and this is in addition to an increased risk of death from other... (Medical News Today)

Study finds breast and ovarian cancer may have similar origins
While breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in women worldwide, ovarian cancer also is a significant source of mortality as the fifth leading cause of cancer death among women. (Medical News Today)

Breaking research shows that men whose blood cells have lost their Y chromosomes have increased Alzheimer's risk. Could this explain why men die younger? (Medical News Today)

Discovery of new disease gene will lead to better screening for severe paediatric heart disease
Cardiomyopathy, or a deterioration of the ability of the heart muscle to contract, generally leads to progressive heart failure. (Medical News Today)

Mouse studies hold promise for a simple, non-surgical treatment for an aggressive gastric neuroendocrine tumour
Patients with aggressive neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) have limited treatment options and there are few oncologists who are specialised in this relatively rare disease. (Medical News Today)

Could swimming pools, hot tubs increase the risk of gene mutations?
Disinfectants used in swimming pools and hot tubs react with sweat, urine, and other human compounds to create byproducts, which researchers say have the potential to alter DNA. (Medical News Today)

Temperature influences gene expression, life cycle in vibrio cholerae
Vibrio cholerae infects roughly four million people annually, worldwide, causing severe diarrheal disease, and killing an estimated 140,000 people. (Medical News Today)

Skin cancer could be prevented with 'sunscreen gene'
Researchers have identified a gene called UVRAG that repairs cellular DNA damage caused by ultraviolet radiation - a primary cause of skin cancer. (Medical News Today)

Lab cell study shows that HOXA5 protein acts as tumor suppressor in breast cancer
Many breast cancers are marked by a lack of HOXA5 protein, a gene product known to control cell differentiation and death, and lower levels of the protein correspond to poorer outcomes for patients. (Medical News Today)

Heart defect prediction technology could lead to earlier, more informed treatment
An experimental model uses genetics-guided biomechanics and patient-derived stem cells to predict what type of inherited heart defect a child will develop, according to authors of a new study in... (Medical News Today)
