    Keysight NMR Metabolomics as Novel Screening Tool for New-borns (For Research Only)
 
Metabolomics is a systematic study of all the metabolites in a cellular tissue or bio-fluid. It is suspected that more than 30,000 metabolites are present in the human cell and some of them can be detected using NMR spectroscopy.

In this interview, Dr. Oscar Millet, group leader of the Precision Medicine and Metabolism group of the CIC bioGUNE, talked to News Medical about his research into the use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) metabolomic analysis as a clinical screening tool. His team has used NMR to screen urine samples form new-borns for congenital metabolic disorders.

Genetic factor enables regeneration of adult skin like a newborn'sA newly identified genetic factor allows adult skin to repair itself like the skin of a newborn babe. The discovery by Washington State University researchers has implications for better skin wound treatment as well as preventing some of the aging process in skin.

Genetic test identifies patients with invasive lobular carcinoma at high risk of recurrenceNew results to be presented at the 12th European Breast Cancer Conference show that a test, which looks at the activity of 70 genes in breast cancer tissue, is possible to use in the clinic to identify patients with invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) that is at high risk of recurring and progressing.

Scientists map genetic networks that control the biology of regulatory T cellsUnlike most T cells, which launch immune responses against foreign molecules, regulatory T cells are the peacekeepers of the human immune system, damping down inflammatory reactions when they're not needed.
 
 
 New, rare genetic form of dementia discovered
 
New, rare genetic form of dementia discoveredA new, rare genetic form of dementia has been discovered by a team of Penn Medicine researchers. This discovery also sheds light on a new pathway that leads to protein build up in the brain -- which causes this newly discovered disease, as well as related neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's Disease -- that could be targeted for new therapies.
