Oncogenic signatures mapped in TCGA aid in development of personalized therapy

Clinical trial design for new cancer therapies has historically been focused on the tissue of origin of a tumor, but a paper published in Nature Genetics supports a new approach: one based on the genomic signature of a tumor rather than the tissue of o… Continue reading

A genome-forward approach to tackling drug-resistant cancers

A new approach to tackling drug-resistant cancers permits analysis of human cancer in unprecedented detail. The new work shows that those transplanted cancers, known as PDX (for patient-derived xenografts), are very good genomic replicas of the origina… Continue reading

New study supports intracerebral injections of bone marrow-derived stem cells to prevent or reduce post-stroke cognitive deficits

Cognitive deficits following ischemic stroke are common and debilitating, even in the relatively few patients who are treated expeditiously so that clots are removed or dissolved rapidly and cerebral blood flow restored. A new study demonstrates that i… Continue reading

Air quality measurements: New manufacturing method for nano gas sensors opens doors

Nano-sized gas sensors in mobile telephones that measure the atmospheric humidity are nothing new as such. However, so far it was necessary to rely on complex lithographic methods to produce the required nano-structure of the sensors, and they have the added disadvantage that they do not work well on uneven surfaces. A relatively new approach is the focused electron beam deposition method – in which the nano-structures can be “written directly” without requiring any pre- or after-treatment. Continue reading
