Neurons sending pulsating electric impulses and communicating with each other. Concept For Neurological Diseases, Tumors And Brain Surgery

Brain Disease-Focused Neumora Launches, Announces $100M Collaboration with Amgen

Neumora was founded in response to the lack of targeted, effective medicines for brain diseases and the high failure rates associated with neuroscience drug development. Including the investment from Amgen, the company has raised $500 million to date, with a Series A investment round led by ARCH Venture Partners.

Vanderbilt Study Looks for Omic Drivers of Pulmonary Fibrosis

PF is currently a general term. It can be caused by exposure to asbestos or silica dust, but is also seen in patients with autoimmune diseases such as systemic sclerosis or arthritis. It is known that genetic factors are important in risk of the condition.

Breakthrough Precision Treatment for Major Depression Announced

The success of this proof-of-principle study rests on the researchers’ discovery of a specific pattern of brain activity that indicates the onset of symptoms (a neural biomarker) in the patient, and their customizing the deep brain stimulation device to trigger a response selectively when it detects the pattern that constitutes the biomarker.

NGS Leveraged for HPV Diagnostic Tool

In a cohort of patients with advanced cervical cancer, researchers reported their new sequencing method detected 20-fold lower levels of HPV circulating tumor DNA.

Digital Insights to Tumor Biology

Digital Insights to Tumor Biology is a complimentary, half-day virtual event dedicated to embracing not just the power of digital pathology but the value of partnerships and end-to-end workflows to better serve the scientific community. This complimentary digital event will address critical issues around biomarker development.

TGen Study Pinpoints Biomarkers for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

The researchers identified differences in DNA methylation (DNAm) that accurately predicted different stages of liver fibrosis in as many as 94% of patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), according to the study published in the journal Clinical Epigenetics.

MYO10 Levels Indicative of Breast Cancer Susceptibility to Immune Checkpoint Blockade

Experiments in tumor-bearing mice indicated that breast tumors—including the most malignant triple-negative breast cancers—with high levels of MYO10 responded favorably to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy, supporting the use of this type of treatment against these tumors.
