Methylation Signature Identified for Brain Metastases of Lung Cancer

When lung cancer metastasizes to the brain, it means the primary lung cancer has created a secondary cancer in the brain. About 20% to 40% of adults with non-small cell lung cancer go on to develop brain metastases at some point during their illness. More...

Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Classified from Whole-Genome Sequencing

A diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer means that the three most common types of receptors known to fuel most breast cancer growth–estrogen, progesterone and the HER-2/neu gene are not present in the cancer tumor. More...

Multigene Testing for Breast Cancer Patients Proves Cost-Effective

Health systems in the UK and USA could cost-effectively screen all women with breast cancer for risky germline changes in a handful of breast or ovarian cancer genes, according to a new economic modeling analysis, identifying at-risk individuals who could benefit from additional imaging tests and cancer-reducing interventions.

New Blood Test Capable of Detecting Multiple Cancer Types

A new blood test in development has shown ability to screen for numerous types of cancer with a high degree of accuracy, a trial of the test shows. In study, test proved able to detect and localize more than 20 types of cancer with a high degree of accuracy. More...

Blood Monocyte Functions Altered in Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease is characterized by the slow degeneration of the neurons in brain due to the abnormal accumulation of a protein called alpha-synuclein. This leads to the patients shaking and then to the slow, stiff movements which many people associate with the disease. More...

Hematological Parameters Detect Patients with Acute VTE

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) encompasses deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). VTE causes cardiovascular death and disability and the risk of PE‐associated mortality and morbidity extends far beyond the acute phase of the disease. More...

Targeted RNA Sequencing Technology Diagnoses Breast Cancer

In recent years, RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) technology has become the standard for transcriptome analysis because of its flexibility, sensitivity, and accuracy in measuring gene expression. RNA-seq is a technology in which cDNA is derived from RNA, followed by library construction and massively parallel deep sequencing. More...
