The genetic information we receive from our parents in the form of chromosomes are mosaics assembled from the two copies of chromosomes each parent has. How such cuts -- or breaks -- in our genetic material are repaired is the research interest of a team of researchers whose findings give important…

A new potential biomarker and target has been identified in lung cancer, namely epiregulin, an under-studied EGF-like growth factor. This discovery led researchers to question whether this upregulation was happenstance, correlative, or in fact causative in the disease.

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 targeting those mutations.

A strong connection between a protein, SIRT5, and healthy heart function has been identified by researchers. SIRT5 has the ability to remove a harmful protein modification known as lysine succinylation, which robs the heart of its ability to burn fatty acids efficiently to generate the energy…

Alcohol related deaths are most likely set to increase in England as incomes outstrip rises in taxation, argue experts. This prediction is based on the researchers' analysis of trends in alcohol related harm in the context of changes in the alcohol marketplace, in turn driven by changes in fiscal…

In 2009, more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat milk were included in the food voucher package provided by USDA's Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). As a result, the diet quality improved for the roughly 4 million children who are served by WIC,…
