Benign Hypertension-Causing Tumors Linked to Somatic Co-Driver Mutations

Most aldosterone-producing adenomas (APAs) have gain-of-function somatic mutations of ion channels or transporters. However, their frequency in aldosterone-producing cell clusters of normal adrenal gland suggests a requirement for co-driver mutations in APAs. More...

Automated Detection of Arm-Level Alterations for Individual Cancer Patients

Copy number alterations (CNAs) can be gains, losses, or loss of heterozygosity (LOH) of a chromosome segment. Based on the length of the altered segment, they are crudely classified as “focal alterations” and “arm-level alterations”. More...

A heat-map, where red shows high levels of a compound, and blue shows low levels of a compounds, reveals the link between certain metabolites and dementia. Compounds in sub-group A were typically higher in dementia patients and lower in healthy elderly people. Compounds in sub-group B-E showed the opposite effect (Photo courtesy of Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology)

Metabolic Biomarker Panel Shows Promise for Diagnosis of Dementia

A biomarker panel based on five groups of metabolites was shown to be potentially useful for diagnosis and therapy of various forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease. More...
