PharmGKB Researchers Hope PharmCAT Tool Will Help Improve Clinical Implementation of Pharmacogenomics Premium The Pharmacogenomics Clinical Annotation Tool interprets variants from sequencing or genotyping tests and generates a report to inform prescribing decisions. Pharmacogenetic Variant Reporting May Increase Utility of Clinical Exome But Barriers Exist Premium NHGRI researchers showed that they were able to extract more useful pharmacogenetic information from exome data than from current chip data. Pharmacogenomic Incidental Findings in Exome, Genome Data May Be Clinically Useful Premium Two research teams found potentially useful PGx variants in more than 1,000 participants in the NIH Undiagnosed Diseases Program, as well as in a handful of ClinSeq participants. NIH Awards $14M to Stanford, St. Jude's Researchers to Examine Genetics of Drug Response The funds will be used to expand the PharmGKB database and support the activities of the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium.

Study Points to Benefits of Local Consolidative Therapy, Targeted Treatments in Cancer Care In JCO Precision Oncology, researchers report that local consolidative therapy combined with molecularly targeted treatments could improve survival for some lung cancer patients. Genetic Variants That Lower LDL Cholesterol Linked to Reduced Heart Disease Risk Rare variants in two genes that lower LDL cholesterol are also associated with a decreased risk of coronary heart disease, according to a new JAMA Cardiology study. Study Links Evolution of Longevity, Social Organization in Mammals With the help of comparative phylogenetics and transcriptomics, researchers in Nature Communications see ties between lifespan and social organization in mammals.
