    Genomics and genetics of clear cell renal cell carcinoma: a mini-review

    Valerie H. Le, James J. Hsieh
    Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) represents a heterogeneous group of malignancies derived from the kidney, of which clear cell RCC (ccRCC) accounts for nearly 75% of cases. Despite major advances in effective therapies, metastatic ccRCC is still associated with a 10%-20% 5-year survival and remains... Read more

    Personalized medicine in epilepsy patients

    Alessandro Orsini, Mariagrazia Esposito, Daniele Perna, Alice Bonuccelli, Diego Peroni, Pasquale Striano
    The large number of different syndromes and seizure types together with an interindividual variable response to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) make the treatment of epilepsy challenging. Fortunately, the last few years have been characterized by a huge interest in epilepsy genetics and two methods,... Read more

    Challenges in implementing genomic medicine: the 100,000 Genomes Project

    Julian G. Barwell, Rory B.G. O’Sullivan, Laura K. Mansbridge, Joanna M. Lowry, Huw R. Dorkins
    Many important medical conditions may be the result of an inherited mutation in one of a number of different genes. Technical advances have reduced the cost of whole genome sequencing and whole exome sequencing to a level where it is now feasible to analyse multiple genes in one test. Every human... Read more

    Biomarkers and therapeutic targets: microRNA roles in the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of eosinophilic esophagitis

    Kristin A. Lambert, Punit Jhaveri, Pooja Jhaveri
    Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic inflammatory disease that is increasingly recognized as the cause of common gastrointestinal symptoms including dysphagia, chest and abdominal pain, heartburn, food impaction, and food refusal in children and adults. Often referred to as “asthma of the... Read more

    The failure of “engineered rejuvenation”: laboratory genomics do not translate into precision anti-aging therapies

    Marios Kyriazis
    There is a general failure of reductionist and mechanistic approaches to rejuvenation biomedical technologies which aim at providing treatments against aging (defined as “time-dependent dysfunction”). Importantly, it is becoming increasingly recognised that genomic research findings in animals... Read more

    Exome sequencing identifies FLNC and ADD3 variants in a family with cardiomyopathy

    Alejandro J. Sanoja, Hua Li, F. Jay Fricker, Stephen F. Kingsmore, Margaret R. Wallace
    Aim: Idiopathic cardiomyopathy is often genetic in origin, typically autosomal dominant, and restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM) is the rarest form. Clinically, RCM prognosis is poor with most patients requiring heart transplant due to impaired diastolic function leading to heart failure. In some... Read more

    Parathyroid carcinoma

    Jessica Costa-Guda
    Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare but clinically-aggressive tumor. While most cases are sporadic, parathyroid cancer is overrepresented in hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor syndrome, or rarely other heritable syndromes. Evidence suggests that sporadic parathyroid carcinomas rarely, if ever, evolve... Read more

    Novel molecular players of X chromosome inactivation: new technologies and new insights

    Piotr Przanowski, Urszula Waśko, Sanchita Bhatnagar
    The dosage compensation in placental mammals is achieved by silencing of one copy of the X chromosomes in a female cell by a process called X chromosome inactivation (XCI). XCI ensures equal gene dosage for X-linked genes between the two genders. Although the choice of X chromosome to be silenced... Read more
