immune system diseases

With genome sequences for nearly 900 individuals with primary immunodeficiency, researchers identified candidate genes and common variant contributors.

Blueprint Genetics, recently acquired by Quest Diagnostics in January, will base the 600-gene panel on its whole-exome sequencing capability.

A large genome-wide association study that included more than 400,000 UK Biobank participants led to 69 new or known loci associated with 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels.

An international group of researchers aim to develop an approach that may be able to diagnose multiple conditions, including pneumonia, tuberculosis, sepsis, with one blood sample.

Investigators analyzed the expression of protein-coding genes in 18 blood immune cell populations, comparing the expression profiles with those in other cell and tissue types.

During the five-year collaboration, the partners will research disease-causing gene mutations and develop new CRISPR-based technologies for drug discovery.

The two Netherlands-based firms will market their joint offering to pharmaceutical companies and others researching immune system-related diseases.

The study, which is recruiting 1,130 children with undiagnosed genetic diseases, is testing two web-based interactive tools.

The new multinational consortium, backed by the EU and Canada, seeks to improve understanding of immune responses and uncover new therapeutic targets.

An analysis of B cell adaptive immune receptor sequences in 10 individuals uncovered exceptionally diverse antibody repertoires with a subset of shared antibody clonotypes.
