Sind Konsumenten bereit für genetische Tests?

2. April 2018 – Sind Konsumenten bereit für Gentests, welche sie bei entsprechenden Firmen and Labors durchführen lassen können und bei welchen sie ihr gesamtes Genom analysiert erhalten können, wenn sie das denn wünschen? Das war die spannende und zentrale Frage, welche in einem kürzlichen Artikel  von Matt Smith in der englischen Ausgabe von Medscape gestellt wurde.

Midostaurin (Rydapt) verlängert das Leben von AML-Patienten mit FLT3-Mutation

26. November 2017 – Die Akute Myeloische Leukämie (AML) zählt zu den besonders aggressiven Leukämieformen mit seit einem Vierteljahrhundert unverändert schlechter klinischer Prognose. Dies scheint sich nun zu ändern: Eine neue Studie hat gezeigt, dass nach Jahrzehnten des therapeutischen Stillstands der Multikinase-Inhibitor Midostaurin (Rydapt) das Leben von AML-Patienten mit FLT3-Mutation beträchtlich verlängern kann.

Personomik: Der fehlende Link zwischen Präzisionsmedizin und personalisierter Medizin

23. Oktober 2017 – In einer Publikation aus dem Journal of Personalized Medicine (J Pers Med 2017 Oct;7(4), PubMed Identifikation (PMID): 29035320 ) wird ein oft übersehener Aspekt der Medizin besprochen und ins Zentrum gestellt: Der Patient.

Der Author, R.C. Ziegelstein, hält fest,

Personalisierte Medizin per se schütz nicht vor schwerwiegenden Arzneimittelnebenwirkungen

25. April 2017 – Personalisierte Medizin per se schütz nicht vor schwerwiegenden Arzneimittelnebenwirkungen. Dies ist eine wichtige Erkenntnis für Patienten / Patientinnen welche eine sogenannte personalisierte (gezielte) Therapie erhalten. Die Informationen und Bewerbungen rund um Arzneimittel welche personalisierte und gezielte Therapien erlauben, könnten nämlich leicht den Eindruck erwecken,

Für Eltern gut zu wissen: Verwendung von Tramadol kann bei einigen Kindern ein ernsthaftes gesundheitliches Risiko darstellen

19. Oktober 2015 – Auch Eltern müssen sich zunehmend mit theragenomischer und personalisierter Medizin befassen. Dies, um für sich selber auf dem neuesten Stand zu sein, und vor allem auch, um die Auswirkungen moderner Theragenomik auf ihre Kinder einschätzen zu können. Als Paradebeispiel für diese Feststellung kann die Untersuchung der Amerikanischen Food &

  • Distinct social profile and high ASD risk, 3q29 deletion survey finds July 19, 2019
    A survey of 93 people with 3q29 deletion syndrome reveals a distinct pattern of social disability and anxiety, even without a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. The results were published online in Molecular Autism on July 16.
  • Study sheds light on the darker parts of our genetic heritage July 19, 2019
    More than half of our genome consists of transposons,DNA sequences that are reminiscent of ancient, extinct viruses.Transposons are normally silenced by a process known as DNA methylation, but their activation can lead to serious diseases. Very little is known about transposons but researchers in an international collaboration project have now succeeded for the first time […]
  • Molecular cause for severe multi-organ syndrome July 19, 2019
    Three unrelated families on three continents (from continental Portugal, the United States and Brazil), all with healthy ancestors, had children with a very rare multi-organ condition that causes early-onset retinal degeneration, sensorineural hearing loss, microcephaly, intellectual disability, and skeletal dysplasia with scoliosis and short stature.
  • Researchers determine epigenetic origin of docetaxel-resistant breast cancer July 19, 2019
    Researchers at the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) have published a study in Molecular Cancer Research in which they identify methylation patterns associated with different subtypes of breast cancer, and a subclassification of the group of "triple negatives," a breast cancer type typically associated with poor prognosis. In addition, they identified changes in DNA methylation […]
  • Researchers report the function of reverse-twisting DNA July 19, 2019
    Normally, the two strands of the DNA double helix wind around each other in a right-handed spiral. However, there is another conformation called Z-DNA in which the strands twist to the left. The function of Z-DNA has remained a mystery since its discovery. A newly published paper unambiguously establishes that the Z-conformation is key to […]

  • Flexible user interface distribution for ubiquitous multi-device interaction July 19, 2019
    KAIST researchers have developed mobile software platform technology that allows a mobile application (app) to be executed simultaneously and more dynamically on multiple smart devices. Its high flexibility and broad applicability can help accelerate a shift from the current single-device paradigm to a multiple one, which enables users to utilize mobile apps in ways previously […]
  • Atomically precise models improve understanding of fuel cells July 19, 2019
    Simulations from researchers in Japan provide new insights into the reactions occurring in solid-oxide fuel cells by using realistic atomic-scale models of the electrode active site based on microscope observations instead of the simplified and idealized atomic structures employed in previous studies. This better understanding of how the structures in the cells affect the reactions […]
  • Predicting long-term risk of death from chest X-rays July 19, 2019
    Researchers in this study looked at whether a computing system that analyzed data from thousands of chest X-rays of smokers and nonsmokers and developed a risk score could predict long-term risk of death.
  • Ivacaftor may reduce common infections in patients with CF July 19, 2019
    Patients with cystic fibrosis who take ivacaftor appear to have fewer respiratory infections over time than those not taking the drug, according to new research published online in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.
