Researchers Discover Five Genetic Variants that Could Help Identify the Most Lethal Prostate Cancers

An international team of researchers has identified five inherited genetic variants that are strongly associated with aggressive, lethal prostate cancer. The discovery ultimately could lead to the development of a simple blood test that could be given upon diagnosis to determine which men should receive aggressive treatment versus a more conservative "watchful waiting" approach. Read more...

 

Simple Test May Help Identify People at Risk of Stroke

A new study shows that a simple ultrasound test may help to identify people at high risk of stroke who have a condition called asymptomatic carotid stenosis, a narrowing of the carotid artery found in the neck, in which few or no symptoms are present. Read more...

Researchers Discover Antibody that May Help Detect Ovarian Cancer in Its Earliest Stages 

Using a new approach to developing biomarkers for the very early detection of ovarian cancer, researchers at Rush University Medical Center have identified a molecule in the bloodstream of infertile women that could one day be used to screen for those at high risk for the disease - or even those with early-stage ovarian cancer. Read more...

 

Eating Dried Plums Helps Prevent Fractures and Osteoporosis

When it comes to improving bone health in postmenopausal women, a Florida State University researcher has found a simple, proactive solution to help prevent fractures and osteoporosis: eating dried plums. Read more...

'Virtual Patient' Models for Personalized Medicine IT

To develop the IT side of personalized medicine, researchers are using a massive computer network to create "virtual patients." These computational patient models will contain genetic data along with traditional health metrics. These computer models are intended to be prototypes of next-generation, easy-to-use health records for personalized medicine. The team is part of the pan-European IT Future of Medicine initiative, a 10-year project that unites more than 25 academic institutions and industrial partners. Read more... 

  

eMERGE Network Moves Closer to Tailored Treatments Based on Patients' Genomic Information

Researchers in the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) network will receive $25 million over the next four years to demonstrate that patients' genomic information linked to disease characteristics and symptoms in their electronic medical records can be used to improve their care. Read more...
