This Week in Science

In Science this week: updated gorilla genome, long non-coding RNA linked to celiac disease, and more.

Researchers identified a common variant in a long non-coding RNA that may contribute to inflammation seen in patients diagnosed with celiac disease. 

Using genotyping data, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia-led team found high heritability across pediatric-onset autoimmune diseases.

Through a meta-analysis of 10 pediatric-onset autoimmune diseases, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia researchers found 22 loci shared among the conditions.

According to one of the researchers, the study offers basic scientific insights into celiac disease and could prove useful in developing therapies for the disease.

The firm will develop companion and standalone diagnostic tools for Celiac disease as its immunotherapy Nexvax2 heads toward Phase II clinical trials.
