Researchers compared schizophrenia genetic risk loci in individuals from East Asian and European populations, uncovering many shared features.

The trial aims to combine personal information, pharmacogenomics data, and machine-learning tools to select the best anti-seizure medication for patients. 

 

 

The findings suggest a potential avenue to treat or prevent Alzheimer's disease, the researchers said.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation-led project aims to lead researchers to new insights about biomarkers indicating Parkinson's disease progression.

Researchers have tied nearly 200 candidate genes, including ones involved in neurodevelopment, apoptosis, and inflammation, to the volume of brain structures.

A study presented at ASHG Tuesday showed that newly identified schizophrenia risk genes appear to have some overlap with genes involved in autism spectrum disorder.

Thousands of parent-child exomes helped researchers identify apparently causative mobile element insertions in a handful of children with developmental disorders.

Acquired epilepsy is a form of the neurological disorder that results from other conditions such as stroke, infections, and traumatic brain injury.

The search uncovered two post-traumatic stress disorder loci in Europeans and a third in individuals with African ancestry, highlighting immune- and brain-related genes.

The organizations noted in a letter to HHS and FDA that they "believe the agency's actions may in fact inflict greater harm on patients and impede innovation."

Researchers also uncovered associations between any psychotic experience and the genetic liability for schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder.

The analysis further found that the degree of network perturbation correlated with the severity of toddlers' autism spectrum disorder.

The blood-based test is designed to detect changes in levels of microRNAs that are enriched in specific brain regions affected by Alzheimer's disease.

Investigators identified dozens of Alzheimer's-related epigenetic signatures based on cytosine methylation and other profiles in Alzheimer's-related cell lines and patient samples.
