This Week in Nature

In Nature this week: genome-wide association study links genetic variants to a number of hair traits, and more.

Genomic and transcriptomic sequence data from hundreds of mesothelioma tumors has uncovered recurrent gene mutations, gene fusions, and pathway alterations.

Survey results reflect strong penetration of Castle Biosciences' uveal melanoma test among specialists as the company plans a future focus on more prevalent diseases.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Australia's Asbestos Diseases Research Institute (ADRI) has recently begun enrolling patients in a Phase I trial of a microRNA-based treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), marking the second time a drug based on the small, non-coding RNAs has moved into human t

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Cancer molecular diagnostics firm Castle Biosciences today said that it raised $11.8 million in a Series E financing round.

Proteomics diagnostics firm Somalogic reported data this week supporting the utility of its blood-based 13-protein panel for the detection of malignant mesothelioma.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Castle Biosciences has licensed the IP and technology rights from Brigham and Women's Hospital for a gene expression profiling test for mesothelioma, the company announced today.

Blood levels of the microRNA miR-625-3p could serve as a predictive biomarker for the early diagnosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma, according to research by a group from the Concord Hospital Asbestos Diseases Research Institute in Sydney, Australia.

The test will be promoted as a means of determining whether plaintiffs in asbestos litigation have lung cancer or mesothelioma.
