Maternal smoking during pregnancy leaves its lasting mark on the child's genetic make-up

If mothers smoke during pregnancy, they influence the epigenetic programming of their unborn child's genetic make-up in the long term. This may give rise to an increased risk of the development of disease risks later in the child's life. Researchers at t

'Liquid biopsy' blood test detects genetic mutations in common form of lung cancer

A simple blood test can rapidly and accurately detect mutations in two key genes in non-small cell lung tumors, researchers report in a new study, demonstrating the test's potential as a clinical tool for identifying patients who can benefit from drugs t

Prospective Validation of Rapid Plasma Genotyping for the Detection of EGFR and KRAS Mutations in Advanced Lung Cancer [FREE FULL TEXT]

Plasma ddPCR detected EGFR and KRAS mutations rapidly with the high specificity needed to select therapy and avoid repeat biopsies. This assay may also detect EGFR T790M missed by tissue genotyping due to tumor heterogeneity in resistant disease.

[Germany] Maternal smoking during pregnancy leaves its lasting mark on the child's genetic make-up

The researchers determined that smoking particularly affects enhancer regions in the genome.... "If an enhancer region is affected by the effects of smoking, this may lead to deregulation of several genes at the same time."

Avoiding the Dangers of Thirdhand Smoke

Beyond the unpleasant sensory experience, there’s another reason the residue of smoking – not just the smoking itself or secondhand smoke – is garnering increasing attention: Emerging research from testing cultured human cells to more recent animal studi

Smoking During Pregnancy Seems to Alter Fetal DNA, Study Finds

The researchers were also able to pinpoint new development-related genes that were affected by a mother-to-be's smoking. The findings may help improve understanding about the connection between smoking during pregnancy and children's health problems, th

Pathways to smoking behaviours: biological insights from the Tobacco and Genetics Consortium meta-analysis

By running gene and pathway analyses for several smoking behaviours in the Tobacco and Genetics Consortium (TAG) sample of 74 053 individuals, 21 genes and several chains of biological pathways were implicated. Analyses were carried out using the HYbrid
