Genetic Tests


Blood Test Could Identify Diabetes Decades Before It Develops

A small molecule circulates in the blood of people who are in the early stages of type 1 diabetes and a simple blood test could detect this biological marker years, maybe decades, before symptoms develop.  More...

Epithelial cadherin is present in all epithelial cell types of the stomach, whereas ARHGAP26 is restricted to parietal cells (Photo courtesy of A*STAR\'s Genome Institute of Singapore).

Genomic Aberrations of Asian Gastric Cancer Discovered

The fusion of two genes gives rise to the destruction of the stomach surface barrier, resulting in gastric acids affecting the stomach tissues; moreover, this fusion also hampers wound-healing.  More...
