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.

HC-based NGS helps detect genomic alterations not identified in routine lung cancer screening

HC-based NGS helps detect genomic alterations not identified in routine lung cancer screening

The use of hybrid capture-based (HC-based) next-generation sequencing (NGS) to identify targetable oncogenic drivers in patients with lung adenocarcinoma results in the detection of genomic alterations (GAs) not identified in routine screening, and impacts treatment decisions and clinical outcomes.

Scientist receives $1.7 million grant to study how early life toxic exposures predispose to diabetes

Scientist receives $1.7 million grant to study how early life toxic exposures predispose to diabetes

Some studies indicate that early life exposure to pollutants such as PCBs and phthalates can predispose people to disease. Now environmental scientist Alicia Timme-Laragy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has received a five-year, $1.7 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences for a multi-level study of early life exposure to environmental contaminants and aberrant pancreas development, which may predispose one to diabetes.
