Genomic Copy Number Predicts Esophageal Cancer Years Before Transformation

Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the lining of the esophagus changes, becoming more like the lining of the small intestine rather than the esophagus. This occurs in the area where the esophagus is joined to the stomach. More...

Circulating Tumor DNA Analysis Directs Therapy in Breast Cancer

Multiple tumor mutations are potentially targetable for advanced breast cancer treatment. Some of these mutations are common, such as activating PIK3CA mutations that are targetable with PI3K inhibitors. More...

Gut Microbiome Data Helps Routine Screening of Cardiovascular Disease

Besides genetics and environmental factors, gut microbiota has emerged as a new factor influencing cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although cause-effect relationships are not clearly established, the reported associations between alterations in gut microbiota and CVD are prominent. More...

Genetics Influence Risk for Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an increasingly recognized cause of myocardial infarction (MI) in young and otherwise healthy women, for which the etiology is incompletely understood. More...

Sequencing Could Augment Other Newborn Screening Methods

Newborn screening (NBS) was established as a public health program in the 1960s and is crucial for facilitating detection of certain medical conditions in which early intervention can prevent serious, life-threatening health problems. More...

Jagged Ends of Double-Stranded DNA Characterized

Cell-free DNA in plasma has been used for noninvasive prenatal testing and cancer liquid biopsy. The physical properties of cell-free DNA fragments in plasma, such as fragment sizes and ends, have attracted considerable recent interest. More...

Diabetes Blood Markers Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease Pathology

Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but late-stage Alzheimer's, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment. More...
