A team led by the University of British Columbia homed in on a variant that linked to increased liver enzyme levels and liver injury during interferon-β treatment.

They demonstrated the applicability of the Simoa platform for nucleic acid detection, and miRNA detection in particular, as Quanterix prepares to launch a new system.

Using small RNA sequencing, investigators found miRNAs in the blood that track with cirrhosis, hepatitis, type 2 diabetes, or acetaminophen toxicity.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The International Serious Adverse Events Consortium has finished enrolling two studies investigating genetic markers linked to drug-induced liver injury and hypersensitivity reactions, and it has launched a new study focused on finding markers of treatment-related inf

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The International Serious Adverse Events Consortium today said that it will collaborate with scientists at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy on research into the genetics behind drug-induced renal inju

The data release is the third for the International Serious Adverse Events Consortium since the public-private collaboration launched three years ago.

Researchers hope to tease out the signature effects that different carcinogens leave on the genome to determine their contributions to disease, Mosaic reports.

The Wall Street Journal looks into the cost of new gene therapies.

An Imperial College London-led team reports that it was able to use a gene drive to control a population of lab mosquitos.
