Genomic Subtypes of Non-invasive Bladder Cancer with Distinct Metabolic Profile and Female Gender Bias in KDM6A Mutation Frequency

Improved prognostic biomarkers and localized therapy are needed for this large patient group. We defined two major genomic subtypes of primary stage Ta tumors. One of these was characterized by loss of 9q including TSC1, increased KI67 labeling index, upr

Genes that hold the clues to bladder cancer and its treatment

Scientists have discovered the 'genetic signatures' of the most common form of bladder cancer...The genetic flaws that contribute to the development of the tumours are not inherited but accumulate throughout life, largely through exposure to environmenta

Three new lung cancer genetic biomarkers identified

SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms) are variations in our DNA that determine our susceptibility to developing some diseases. Using the largest genome-wide SNP-smoking interaction analysis reported for lung cancer, a research team has identified three n

Three new lung cancer genetic biomarkers are identified in Dartmouth study

In their study, three novel SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms), or variations in our DNA that underlie our susceptibility to developing disease, were identified in the interaction analysis, including two SNPs for non-small cell lung cancer risk and o

Cigarette Smoking alters Epigenetics

smoke from cigarettes actually changes the epigenetic makeup of DNA, thereby paving the road to lung cancer. Unfortunately, smoking is responsible for death in about 50% of the people who don’t quit. Unfortunately, second hand smoke affects children and
