pulmonary fibrosis

The consortium aims to develop assays that can detect biomarkers of pulmonary fibrosis that can be used as early indicators of a treatment's activity.

Among the study's goals is to identify molecular signatures that can distinguish idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis from interstitial lung disease.

Veracyte will offer 5 million shares at $10.25 per share. It has granted underwriters an option to purchase an additional 750,000 shares.

The assay correlates shortened telomere lengths in patients of different ages to potential risks for inherited diseases, such as bone marrow failure syndrome and liver cancer.

Researchers found that mutations in this gene increased the risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bone marrow failure, and other conditions.

The funding will support analyses of different tissue regions and cell types of IPF lungs, with the goal of better understanding the disease's pathogenesis.

Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center uncovered variants in two genes tied to pulmonary fibrosis and telomere shortening.

A group of researchers from several US institutions has identified a gene expression signature that can predict which patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis are likely to have a worse outcome, based on how long they lived with the disease before death or before requiring a l

In Nature Genetics, an international team led by investigators at the University of Minnesota described findings from a forward genetic screen aimed at uncovering mutations that drive the development of

The assay, which its developers claim can measure telomere length in less than half the time of other PCR-based methods while using 20-fold less genetic material, will be deployed as part of a clinical study designed to monitor changes in telomere length in response to certain therapies in patients with telomere diseases.
