Mismatch Repair/Microsatellite Instability Evaluated Using Cytology Effusion Specimens

DNA mismatch repair (MMR) status is routinely assessed in colorectal and endometrial carcinoma as a method of cancer prevention, surveillance in patients with Lynch syndrome and their families, and for prognostic, predictive, and therapeutic implications. More...

Metastatic Gastric Cancer Outcomes Informed by Single-Cell Transcriptome Profiles

Peritoneal Carcinomatosis (PC) is a late stage manifestation of several gastrointestinal malignancies including appendiceal, colorectal, and gastric cancer. In PC, tumors metastasize to and deposit on the peritoneal surface and often leave patients with only palliative treatment options. More...

Alzheimer's Disease Subtypes Proposed from Brain Gene Expression Profiles

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia in the elderly, estimated to affect more than 5.8 million individuals in the USA and more than 50 million worldwide, with almost half of individuals aged over 75 years. More...

Common Brain Malformation Traced to Its Genetic Roots

About one in 100 children has a common brain disorder called Chiari 1 malformation, but most of the time such children grow up normally and no one suspects a problem. However about one in 10 of those children, the condition causes headaches, neck pain, hearing, vision and balance disturbances, or other neurological symptoms. More...

Combination Urinary Biomarker Panel Detects Pancreatic Cancer Earlier

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the deadliest cancers, with only around 9% of patients surviving more than 5 years. Asymptomatic in its initial stages, PDAC is mostly diagnosed late, when already a locally advanced or metastatic disease, as there are no useful biomarkers for detection in its early stages, when surgery can be curative. More...

Multiplex Bead-Based Immunoassay Validated for Non-Invasive Bladder Cancer Detection

Cancer of the urinary bladder has two unique features: the tumor is continuously immersed in a urine and the tumor is able to shed cells or release tumor associated products (e.g., protein, DNA, RNA) directly into urine, which is easily collected and assessed. More...

Single-Cell Transcriptome Links Gut Development, Pediatric Crohn's Disease

Development of the human intestine is a highly complex process that requires synergy between a wide range of cell types. Importantly, environmentally triggered alterations in early development have been implicated in a range of immune-mediated pathologies, including inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). More...
