At ASHG, a FinnGen researcher reported new recessive disease associations for cataracts, hearing loss, and other conditions, identified through the population study.

Since the mutations are only found in a subset of patients' blood cells, the disorder, called VEXAS, might be treatable with a bone marrow transplant.

Within the KiCS study researchers found targetable mutations in more than half of the kids, but few actually received drugs based on those molecular markers.
