stroke Genetic Study Explains Link Between Osteoporosis Drug, Cardiovascular Risk The findings underscore the value of carrying out large-scale human genetic analyses as part of drug target identification and validation efforts. New Genetic Score Predicts Stroke Risk Better Than Established Risk Factors The score's developers also suggest that current guidelines for stroke prevention may not be sufficient for individuals at higher genomic risk for the condition. Healthy Sleep Patterns May Counteract Genetic Susceptibility of Heart Disease, Stroke Individuals with high genetic susceptibility to heart disease but good sleep habits appeared less likely to develop disease than those with poor sleep patterns. Fauna Bio Awarded $229K NIH Grant for Animal Genomics-Based Drug Discovery Platform The company aims to repurpose drugs by translating the mechanisms that allow hibernating animals to withstand the stresses of extended sleep. Stroke Test Being Developed to Detect Cause, Enable Better Treatment Premium The firm is using a microarray-based platform as part of a laboratory-based test to diagnose different types of stroke from blood samples.
