NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Following on the successful development of a genetic test for heritable jaundice, researchers from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) and specialty pharmaceutical firm P2D have begun work on a next-generation sequencing assay to identify mutations associated with inherited forms of pancreatitis.

Meantime, P2D and CCHMC continue to work on a follow up to the jaundice test that will use next-gen sequencing to screen for genetic mutations in order to diagnose a number of additional liver diseases.
