New Research Points to Common Gene Expression Profile of Autism Spectrum Disorder

The results indicate that while the DNA of individuals with autism may harbor different alterations, the activity of these genes is similar in people with the disorder, and differs from that of the same genes in the brains of people without autism.

PrecisionLife’s AI Platform Identifies 59 Drug Candidates with Potential vs. Sepsis in COVID-19

According to PrecisionLife, the 59 drug candidates could be studied in future drug trials and repurposing projects—and also hold potential as high-risk biomarkers for COVID-19.

Biomarker in Cerebrospinal Fluid of Infants May Predict Development of Autism

The study showed that the hormone vasopressin was present at much lower levels in the CSF of 0–3-month-old babies who were later diagnosed with ASD than it was in CSF samples from infants who weren’t subsequently diagnosed with ASD.

Tapping into the Potential of Circulating Tumor Cells

The detection of CTCs with the Genesis System has several potential clinical research applications in cancer. This technology could guide upfront treatment decisions, predict which tumors will metastasize, and identify therapeutic response early in the treatment cycle, thereby allowing decisions about whether to stop or continue their course of therapy.
