How DNA outside cells can be targeted to prevent the spread of cancer

Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) is DNA found in trace amounts in blood, which has escaped degradation by enzymes. Scientists from Tokyo University of Science, led by Prof Ryushin Mizuta, have now discovered exactly how cfDNA is generated. They also talk about the applications of DNase1L3—the enzyme mainly responsible for generating cfDNA—as a novel molecule to prevent the spread of tumors. Prof […]

Uncovering possible role of polyphosphate in dialysis-related amyloidosis

Long-term dialysis treatment is tough on the body in many ways, but one of the most serious complications is dialysis-related amyloidosis, a disease characterized by abnormal buildup of protein aggregates—called amyloid fibrils—in joints, tissues and organs. Although there is no cure, recent research by Osaka University researchers sheds light on how amyloid fibrils form and aggregate, thereby allowing the identification […]

Seven-country study reveals viruses as new leading cause of global childhood pneumonia

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and other viruses now appear to be the main causes of severe childhood pneumonia in low- and middle-income countries, highlighting the need for vaccines against these pathogens, according to a study from a consortium of scientists from around the world, led by a team at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Pneumonia is the […]

Researchers criticize study calling for expansion of genetic testing for breast cancer

Researchers at the University of Cambridge have criticised a recent study calling into question guidelines on genetic testing for hereditary breast cancer. In an article published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in December 2018 entitled “Underdiagnosis of Hereditary Breast Cancer: Are Genetic Testing Guidelines a Tool or an Obstacle?”, 27 US researchers argued for expanded genetic testing in all […]
