Cancer gene mutations can predict response to less intensive treatment in AML patients

Cancer gene mutations can predict response to less intensive treatment in AML patients

Patients with the most lethal form of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) - based on genetic profiles of their cancers - typically survive for only four to six months after diagnosis, even with aggressive chemotherapy. [More]
Study finds genomic regions with copy number variants linked to schizophrenia risk

Study finds genomic regions with copy number variants linked to schizophrenia risk

Many of the genetic variations that increase risk for schizophrenia are rare, making it difficult to study their role in the disease. [More]

Scientists from Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine and other institutions are using synthetic biology to capture elusive, short-lived snippets of DNA that healthy cells produce on their way to becoming cancerous. [More]
Implementation of large-scale genomic tumor profiling viable but faces several challenges

Implementation of large-scale genomic tumor profiling viable but faces several challenges

Researchers leading the largest genomic tumor profiling effort of its kind say such studies are technically feasible in a broad population of adult and pediatric patients with many different types of cancer, and that some patients can benefit by receiving precision drugs targeted to their tumors' mutations or being enrolled in clinical trials.
