Image: Translocation: a fragment of a chromosome is moved (trans-located) from one chromosome to another and joins a non-homologous chromosome. The balance of genes is still normal (nothing has been gained or lost), but can alter phenotype as it places genes in a new environment (Photo courtesy of Indiana University).

Chromosomal Abnormalities Associated With Recurrent Miscarriage

Recurrent miscarriage, or the loss of two or more pregnancies, affects between 1% and 2% of couples. Chromosomal abnormalities are the major genetic cause of miscarriage and are detected by routine analysis in about 1 in 50 couples. More...

High Levels Of Blood Hormones Raise Prostate Cancer Risk

Men with higher levels of 'free' testosterone and a growth hormone in their blood are more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Other factors such as older age, ethnicity and a family history of the disease are already known to increase a man's risk of developing prostate cancer. More...

Use of Cell-free DNA Liquid Biopsy to Predict Glioblastoma Progression

Cancer researchers have demonstrated the potential clinical utility of liquid biopsy to measure plasma cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma in order to predict the progression of the disease. More...

Prostate Cancer Methylation Levels Linked to Epigenetic Profiles

Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in the prostate, a small walnut-shaped gland in men that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. More...

Measurable Residual Disease Assessed Post-Transplantation In Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

The detection of residual disease by techniques more sensitive than light microscopy is called measurable residual disease (MRD) and is an important prognostic marker, which dictates outcome of disease. Assessment of measurable residual disease (MRD) is rapidly transforming the therapeutic and prognostic landscape of a wide range of hematological malignancies. More...
