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.

Two Parkinson’s Associated Genes Play Role in Mitochondrial Recycling in Neurons

In most cells, damaged mitochondria are decomposed in a process known as mitophagy, which is initiated by two proteins, PINK1 and Parkin. Mutations in these same proteins also cause hereditary forms of Parkinson’s disease.

Measuring Pre-Treatment ctDNA May Predict Long-Term Lung Cancer Survival

There are currently no predictive biomarkers for long-term survival after neoadjuvant immunotherapy for lung cancer. However, identifying patients with non-small lung cancer (NSCLC) who obtain long-term benefit from IO is essential to optimize treatment.

New Research Shows Why ApoE4 Increases Alzheimer’s Disease Risk

The researchers found that the lipid composition was healthy in the brain of mice with ApoE3 with sufficient amounts of unsaturated fatty acids and endocannabinoids. But when compared to the brain cells of E3, the E4 mice did not receive enough lipids.
