Somatic Evolution Identified in Non-Neoplastic IBD-Affected Colon

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a debilitating disease characterized by repeated flares of intestinal inflammation. The two major subtypes of IBD, Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are distinguished by the location, continuity, and nature of the inflammatory lesions. More...

Liquid Biopsy Test Accurately Detects Cancer in Nonsymptomatic Individuals

A liquid biopsy test that analyzes levels of circulating tumor DNA methylation detected cancer in nonsymptomatic individuals up to four years before tumors were found by current diagnostic methods. More...

Elevated Angiotensin 1–7/Angiotensin II Ratio Predicts Favorable Outcomes in Patients with Heart Failure with Potential Link to COVID-19 Patients

A high ratio of angiotensin 1-7 to angiotensin II (Ang 1–7/Ang II ratio), was found to be an independent and incremental predictor of beneficial outcomes, higher survival rate, and decreased hospitalization duration for patients with heart failure and possibly in patients with cardiovascular complications due to COVID-19. More...

Nanostar Biosensors Use Raman Scattering for Direct Detection of Cancer-Related MicroRNAs

A novel non-invasive nanoparticle-based assay detects cancer-related microRNAs without use of labels or target amplification. More...

Pediatric Ependymoma Single-Cell Analysis Signatures Linked to Outcomes

An ependymoma is a tumor that arises from the ependyma, a tissue of the central nervous system. Usually, in pediatric cases the location is intracranial, while in adults it is spinal. The common location of intracranial ependymomas is the fourth ventricle. More...

Combined Proteomic/Genomic Method Detects Early Signs of Pancreatic Cancer

A new method that utilized a combined proteomic and genomic approach for profiling serum proteins in solution demonstrated high accuracy for distinguishing samples derived from pancreatic cancer patients and those from healthy controls. More...

RNA Sequencing Identifies Novel Cell Class Linked to Rheumatoid Arthritis Flares

A novel class of blood cells has been identified, which may serve as a biomarker able to predict the imminent occurrence of an episodic “flare” in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. More...
