ctDNA Provides Prognostic Clues in Advanced BRAF-Mutated Melanoma Cases

A BRAF mutation is a change in a BRAF gene. That change in the gene can lead to an alteration in a protein that regulates cell growth that could allow the melanoma to grow more aggressively. Approximately half of melanomas carry this mutation and are referred to as mutated, or BRAF positive. More...

22-Gene Genomic Classifier Validated in Recurrent Prostate Cancer Patients

When prostate cancer has been detected or has returned following initial treatment with surgery, radiation therapy and/or hormone therapy, it is said to be recurrent or relapsed. Treatment of recurrent prostate cancer depends on what treatment a patient has previously received and the extent of the cancer. More...

Blood Biomarker Predicts Dementia in Cerebral Small Vessel Disease

Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) is a highly prevalent condition, which causes lacunar stroke, vascular cognitive impairment and vascular dementia. Few treatments have been shown to delay disease progression. More...

Proteogenomic And Metabolomic Studies Characterize Human Glioblastoma

Glioblastoma (GBM) is an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain or spinal cord. Glioblastoma forms from cells called astrocytes that support nerve cells. Glioblastoma can occur at any age, but tends to occur more often in older adults. It can cause worsening headaches, nausea, vomiting and seizures. More...

Exome Sequencing Identified Pathogenic Variants in Cerebral Palsy Patients

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Signs and symptoms vary among people and over time. Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors. More...

Biomarkers Evaluate Kidney Injury in Cancer Patients

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) are monoclonal antibodies that can unleash the immune system by blocking surface molecules that serve as important breaks (or checkpoints) that mediate negative regulation of T cells. ICI have substantially improved the prognosis for patients with a wide range of malignancies. More...

Biomarker Predicts Pancreatic Cancer Patients’ Response to CD40 Immunotherapy

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is the most common type of pancreatic cancer and currently the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the USA. Despite the fact that it only accounts for about 3% of new cancer cases, it is responsible for more than 7% of all cancer deaths, and only10% of patients survive five years with the disease. More...
