Telomere Biomarker Blood Test Predicts Cancer Years In Advance

Telomeres are sequences of DNA on the ends of chromosomes that stop them fraying and losing their integrity, but they gradually shorten as one ages and by the time one grow up they are half the length they were when a person was born, then they halve again as they enter old age.  More...

Simple Assay Determines Lymphoma Subtypes Rapidly

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the most common non-Hodgkin lymphoma, is subdivided into germinal center B-cell-like and activated B-cell-like subtypes, but these lymphomas are difficult to discriminate in routine diagnosis, impeding the development of treatments.   More...
