How Do We Regulate Advanced Technologies Along Social or Ethical Lines?

The public’s wariness with new technologies, like CRISPR-9 and gene editing, is largely based on ethical, religious and social concerns, rather than concerns about safety or efficacy, which is what regulatory agencies are limited to consider.

Doctors Treat Deadly Cancerous Disorders with Gene-Guided, Targeted Therapy

KumarJCIinisght_petscan.jpg

Genomic testing of biopsies from patients with deadly, treatment-resistant cancerous blood syndromes called histiocytoses allowed doctors to identify genes fueling the ailments and use targeted molecular drugs to successfully treat them. Researchers report their data in Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight (JCI Insight). They recommend the regular use of comprehensive genomic profiling at diagnosis to positively impact clinical care,

DNA Patterns Can Unlock How Glucose Metabolism Drives Cancer, Study Finds

Less aggressive cancers are known to have an intact genome—the complete set of genes in a cell—while the genome of more aggressive cancers tends to have a great deal of abnormalities. Now, a new multi-year study of DNA patterns in tumor cells suggests that these aberrant genetic signatures are not random but reflect selective forces in tumor evolution.
