Study identifies possible genetic link between children's language and mental health
A new study suggests there may be genetic explanations for why some children with poor language also have poor mental health.
Genetic testing in women diagnosed with breast cancer decreases cost of care nationwide
A new study suggests that Oncotype DX-guided treatment could reduce the cost for the first year of breast cancer care in the US by about $50 million (about two percent of the overall costs in the first year). The study by Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and the country’s National Cancer Institute researchers was published April 24, in JNCI.
Great white shark's genetic secrets revealed
The great white shark, one of the most fearsome predators in the world’s oceans in both fact and fiction, is a formidable creature — right down to its genes.
Researchers correct genetic mutation that causes IPEX
UCLA researchers led by Dr. Donald Kohn have created a method for modifying blood stem cells to reverse the genetic mutation that causes a life-threatening autoimmune syndrome called IPEX. The gene therapy, which was tested in mice, is similar to the technique Kohn has used to cure patients with another immune disease, severe combined immune deficiency, or SCID, also known as bubble baby disease.
Love of coffee may be genetic
Coffee's bitter taste shouldn't be a selling point. But a genetic variant explains why so many people love the brew, a new study suggested.
Genetic factors tied to obesity may protect against diabetes
Some genetic variations linked with obesity actually protect against Type 2 diabetes, heart attack and stroke, new findings suggested.
Stroke: Can lifestyle changes trump genetic risk?
Strokes happen when an obstruction restricts the blood supply to the brain, and so the brain does not receive enough oxygen. A person's genetic makeup and their lifestyle both influence their risk of stroke, but which is more important?
Cancer-related genetic testing is rare for women on Medicare
Testing for gene mutations linked to breast and ovarian cancer is rare among some Medicare patients who have the cancers and qualify for such tests, a new study found.
Genetic tool could help scientists identify the most resilient types of corals
A team at Stanford University has started using a genetic editing tool called CRISPR to identify the genes that make corals more heat-tolerant.
New platform poised to be next generation of genetic medicines
A City of Hope (a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases) scientist has discovered a gene-editing technology that could efficiently and accurately correct the genetic defects that underlie certain diseases, positioning the new tool as the basis for the next generation of genetic therapies.
Cross-species genetic transfer driving evolution
The transfer of genes between species has significantly influenced the genetic makeup of mammals, an Australian study found.
Genetic variations in DNA could help improve efficacy of clinical trials
The evolution of medicine relies heavily on the results of clinical trials, which while essential, are extremely costly and carry the potential of unintended adverse consequences.
An enzyme involved in cancer and aging gets a close-up
Like a genetic handyman, an elusive enzyme deep inside certain cells repairs the tips of chromosomes, which fray as cells divide. It’s prized by rapidly dividing cells – like stem cells and tumor cells – and by scientists on the hunt for cancer and other disease therapies.
Genetic influence on social outcomes greater in meritocratic than communistic societies
A team of researchers from the UK, Australia and the US has found evidence that suggests genetic influence on social outcomes is greater in meritocratic than in communistic societies.
