The Hill, by Arielle Kane

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched a precision medicine initiative, “All of Us,” on May 1st, 2018. In this first-of-its kind longitudinal study, researchers aim to collect genomic, environmental, lifestyle, and socio-economic information on 1 million Americans over a period of 10 years. The overarching goal of the project is to identify health patterns across a diverse range of individuals and translate this information to more personalized approaches to medicine. Along with advancing healthcare at large, the research can help individual participants understand their personal health risks, make lifestyle choices to reduce disease risk, and receive personalized treatments if they become i...

A recent study by Dr. Allison Kurian of Stanford University School of Medicine provides information on the uptake and outcomes of multigene panels for patients with breast cancer. Researchers surveyed and analyzed data from 5,026 women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. They found that 26% of individuals had genetic testing, usually in genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 only. When multi-gene panels were ordered, it was typically by genetic counselors. Authors found that multi-gene panels have enabled much higher detection of clinically relevant mutations without an associated increase in prophylactic mastectomy; however, for many patients, sequencing was performed too late to influence treatment decisions.

The Guardian, by Sally Williams

In this article, women share their experiences of tragedy watching close family members pass away from breast or ovarian cancer. These individuals have a known genetic mutation predisposing them to breast and ovarian cancer, and they are determined not to suffer the same fate as their "unlucky" family members. While removing organs such as the breasts and ovaries is a difficult decision, these women feel like it was absolutely worth it.

Press Release by FH Foundation

The FH Foundation in partnership with Color launched a research study that aims to understand the willingness of individuals with a clinical diagnosis of familial hypercholesterolemia and their family members to undergo confirmatory genetic testing. The study will offer individuals with FH enrolled in the FH Foundation's CASCADE FH Registry Patient Portal complimentary access to Color's genetic testing and genetic counseling.

Oxygen makes up about 65% of the mass of the adult body—most of this is in the form of water.

Oxygen also makes up approximately 50% of the mass of the Earth’s crust and 21% of the atmosphere (air)—the rest of the atmosphere is mostly nitrogen (78%). The Earth is the only planet in the solar system with a high percentage of oxygen.

Oxygen Characteristics:

Oxygen is critical for chemical reactions that keep the body alive, including the reactions that produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) —the molecule used for energy. Brain cells are sensitive to a lack of oxygen because of their demand for a high-and-steady production of ATP.

Brain damage is likely within five minutes without oxygen (cerebral hypoxia, and death is lik...

Background:

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMC) has materialized as a significant and important autologous biological means in health care therapeutic strategies. The use of biologics for tissue repair and regenerative processes are still at its infancy when compared to surgical interventions and pharmaceuticals. However, autologous biologic therapies are rapidly becoming an integral part of Modern Therapeutic Medicine (Figure 1).
