Live bacteria from cystic pancreatic lesions, which are precursors to pancreatic cancer, have been found to have an over-representation of Gammaproteobacteria and Bacilli, both of which normally reside in the digestive tract.
People who respond well to the recommended dietary therapy for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have an abundance of particular types of bacteria in their gut, reveals new research from the Wellcome Sanger Trust and Addenbroke Hospital in the U.K.
Cell free DNA formulated in synthetic matrix that is compatible with diverse extraction platforms provides greater flexibility in choosing reference materials.
As it looks to leverage its technology, the company is focused on building industry partnerships that will allow it collect and analyze large-scale datasets to help it develop machine-learning pipelines.
The researchers developed the largest open-access database on microscopic images of bone marrow cells to date, consisting of more than 170,000 single-cell images from more 900 patients with various blood diseases.
Clearing dysfunctional fat cells at least once a month reduced symptoms and slowed down the development of type 2 diabetes in a mouse model, which researchers believe could translate to humans at risk of developing the condition in the future.
The drug riluzole could slow the gradual loss of Purkinje neurons that occurs in Niemann-Pick disease type C1 (NPC1), according to a laboratory study by scientists at the National Institutes of Health.
Next steps in the research will include further personalize the CF Lung Airway Chip by generating versions in which bronchial epithelial, vascular endothelial, and immune cells are obtained from the same patient.
DNA tests showed that a specific region of the oxytocin gene was consistently more methylated in maltreated children. The researchers then linked this hypermethylation with changes in brain structure and activity.
This research is reportedly the first to create a new workflow for neoantigen identification that incorporates both genetic sequencing and protein identification to create a personalized treatment for medulloblastoma in children.
Population diversity in genomics databases is the key to providing true precision medicine.
The microorganisms on us and inside us can determine our health and even impact the efficacy of treatments.
The new omics-based technology may be taking research labs by storm, but will it have a similar impact in the clinic?
The latest research from the BabySeq project shows that the delivery of genomic information from healthy newborns does not increase anxiety in parents.
