This Week in PNAS

In PNAS this week: approach for analyzing the expression of endogenous retroviruses, circular RNAs that influence host-virus interactions, and more.

Data for nearly 306,500 individuals revealed the impact of independent lifestyle and genetic factors on stroke risk over roughly seven years of follow up.

Using data from the UK Biobank, researchers explored relative contributions that genetics and lifestyle make to cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk.

Data from almost 19,500 individuals did not show clear ties between a heterozygous mutation in the HBB hemoglobin beta gene and ischemic stroke risk.

In Nature this week: method that uses DNA methylation signatures to classify central nervous system tumors, and more.

The researchers uncovered more than 20 new stroke-associated genetic loci, some of which are the targets of antithrombotic drugs.

A study led by Johns Hopkins describes a method for automating slow, inaccurate manual chart review when searching for signs of misdiagnosis.

The model aims to uncover stroke patients at high, medium, or low risk of cerebral amyloid angiopathy, which is linked to additional strokes or dementia.
