Genome-Wide Association Leads to Heart Failure Risk Loci

 Heart failure (HF) affects more than 30 million individuals worldwide and its prevalence is rising. HF-associated morbidity and mortality remain high despite therapeutic advances, with 5-year survival averaging around 50%. More...

Molecular Characteristics of Leptomeningeal Melanoma Metastases Identified

 Patients with advanced melanoma who develop metastases in the leptomeninges, the fluid filled membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, have an extremely poor prognosis. Most patients only survive for eight to 10 weeks after diagnosis. More...
