Diabetes Respite

University of Pittsburgh-led team finds that gene therapy could treat mice with type 1 diabetes for a few months, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Over the next three years, Immunovia and its partners will use the firm's Immray PanCan-d assay to screen 6,000 diabetes patients for pancreatic cancer.

The Salk Institute-led team developed a system for in vivo activation of endogenous target genes through trans-epigenetic remodeling.

A null mutation in the SERPINE1 gene was associated with longer telomeres and increased longevity among carriers, a new study found.

With exome and/or RNA sequences for dozens of insulinomas, researchers saw epigenetic, development, and other pathways prompting insulin-producing cell expansion.

The researchers believe that the discovery of the genetic loci linked to T2D and CHD will lead to therapeutic opportunities to lower the risk of both diseases.

Startups offering blockchain technology to support genomics and precision medicine still need to prove themselves and find markets.

The newly announced Microbiome Immunity Project seeks to discover links between autoimmune diseases and bacteria in and on the human body.

The collaboration will place T1D in the field of precision medicine, potentially allowing JDRF to identify factors that potentially lead to T1D.

On a conference call, the firm's CEO said that it and other industry players are pushing to postpone implementation of PAMA to no earlier than July 1, 2018.
