Asthma Risk Heightened by Genetic Predisposition, Poor Sleep Patterns
Researchers found that favorable sleep patterns can dial down asthma risk in individuals at high polygenic risk, while poor sleep patterns boost prevalence of the condition.
Gastric Cancer Risk Variants, Pathogen Interactions Found in Retrospective Study
Sequencing on gastric cancer cases and controls helped flag nine susceptibility genes, including genes that interact with Helicobacter pylori infection to bump up risk.
Breast Cancer Study Leads to New Susceptibility Gene, Potential Treatment Strategies
Researchers found risk variants in the DNA damage checkpoint gene ATRIP in a Polish founder population and linked the gene to breast cancer risk and HRD in other populations.
Black Women With High Cancer Risk Lack Access to Genetics Experts, Specialists, OSU Study Finds
After interviews showed Black women are more likely to seek cancer risk information from PCPs, Ohio State researchers are delving deeper into disparities research.
Lung Function GWAS Meta-Analysis Yields Insights Into Healthy, Diseased States
A multi-ancestry meta-analysis revealed more than 550 lung function-related genes, along with genetic risk scores linked to several traits or conditions.
