To the development of fundamentally new and innovative technologies needed to boost the cost of sequencing a genome reduced 10,000-fold, the National Human Genome Research Institute $ 13,000 awarded in new grants to nine universities and corporations in the U.S., including UCSD. The institute, which is part of the National Institutes of Health , is the the funding program as an incentive for the routine use of genomics in medical research and care.

It is believed that telemedicine will lead to better control of blood glucose levels and therefore a better pregnancy and birth. Valerie Whiteman, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology, is the project co-investigator. (more…)

‘We have to understand the strengths of different model organisms, such as a new protein by this new by this new gene functions, ‘Winning said Irene Zohn, in humans. Group studying mice genetics at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, led, and is one of the first authors on the CCDC40 study with Burdine the group. A third group, led by physician Heymut Omran and based at the University Clinic in Freiburg, Germany, rounded out the team, with other individual participants located elsewhere. ‘These results would have been possible without the collaboration between the three groups,’Zohn added.

PNH is a rare acquired genetic blood disorder hemolysis hemolysis, destroyed destroyed red blood cells by complement, a component of the body’s immune system. The primary endpoint of the study is the reduction of hemolysis from the baseline.

So thatering To Mend Broken Hearts – Scaffold approach could help Engeeniring other tissuesBroken hearts could one day be mended using a novel scaffold developed by MIT researchers and colleagues. The idea is that living heart cells or stem cells were seeded onto such a scaffold in a patch of cardiac tissue to treat the congenital heart defects, or help restore tissue could be damaged by a heart attack. The biodegradable scaffold gradually be absorbed into the body, so that. Behind the new tissue. (more…)

The future of improved drug safety and value in health care is based on a drug regulation process that keeps pace with the advances in science and technology. I look forward to working with the Congress and my colleagues at the FDA to allow it.

Granted, there is a tension between balancing the risks and benefits of innovative new treatments for patients in need of hope. All medicines have risks associated with them. We need these risks against the need to to to new innovations for patients who can benefit from them. We can minimize these risks and still pursue the necessary new technologies through innovations such as FDA Critical Path Initiative must more intelligent and personalized medicine so that we can new drugs targeted.
