liver disease Blood, Urine Biomarker Study Leads to Linked Loci, Disease-Related Risk Scores By uncovering genetic factors behind blood and urine biomarkers, researchers came up with polygenic scores related to biomarker status and related disease risk. Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Progression Can Be Traced by Gene Expression Signature A transcriptomic study found 25 genes that are differentially expressed at various disease stages, suggesting the proteins they encode could serve as biomarkers. Ymir Genomics Licenses Urine Biomarkers for Liver Disease Detection From OHSU Ymir Genomics and OHSU will share in any value created by the biomarkers and will jointly publish and validate the biomarkers in a large-scale multi-center study. DiscernDx Acquires Luminist Labs Luminist Labs is developing diagnostic technology for liver disease, which DiscernDx will integrate into its precision medicine platform. Namocell, Takara Bio, HepaTx Partner on Single-Cell Genomics for Late-Stage Liver Disease The partners will use Namocell's single-cell dispensing tool and Takara's Smart-seq technology to isolate and characterize HepaTx's hepatocyte-like cells.
