Non-Invasive Prenatal Sequencing Designed for Multiple Mendelian Monogenic Disorders

Current non-invasive prenatal screening is targeted toward the detection of chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. However, screening for many dominant monogenic disorders associated with de novo mutations is not available, despite their relatively high incidence. More...

Dengue Severity Predicted by Gene Expression Signature

About 400 million individuals annually are infected with any of the four dengue virus (DENV) serotypes and although the majority of symptomatic individuals present with acute dengue fever, a fraction, between ∼5% to 20% of these patients progress to severe dengue infection. More...

Accuracy of Self-Sampling for HPV Screening Evaluated

Molecular testing for human papillomavirus (HPV) using patient-collected cervico-vaginal samples has shown similar levels of accuracy to testing done on clinician-collected samples and could boost participation in overall HPV screening. More...

Symptomatic Respiratory Pathogen Found in Transplant Recipients

As opportunistic pathogens, microsporidia cause symptomatic infections mainly in patients with impaired immune function; and microsporidial dissemination to the central nervous system, eyes, and respiratory and urinary tracts has been documented in these patients. More...

Genetic Causes of Salivary Gland Carcinoma Discovered

Acinic cell carcinoma is the third most common malignant form of salivary gland cancer. These tumors are similar to normal salivary gland tissue and occur most frequently in the parotid gland. Until now, the molecular causes for the illness were unknown. More...

Whole-Exome Sequencing Evaluates Fetal Structural Anomalies

In about 3% of pregnancies, ultrasound imaging will reveal a significant fetal physical anomaly and knowing the cause of the anomaly can help doctors and parents be better prepared, both during the pregnancy and after delivery. More...
