Bridging The Public Knowledge Gap Around Cell And Gene …

By Morrie Ruffin, ARM Foundation for Cell and Gene Medicine Cell and gene therapies hold the potential to transform medicine; however, if patients are to gain access to these therapies, we must increase public awareness and understanding of how these therapies can benefit them. According to a review of recent research studies that measured U.S. public opinion related to gene medicine,1 the public is not yet aware of gene medicine; is unfamiliar with the terms being used to describe the topic; and, when faced with multiple therapeutic options, is worried about making informed decisions Continue reading

COPD RESEARCH STUDY Biology of the Oral Epithelium of Electronic Cigarette Smokers Little is known about the oral health risks of smoking electronic cigarettes, an increasingly popular form of inhaled alternative tobacco products. Based on the knowledge that adverse effects are observed at the biologic level long before clinical abnormalities manifest, we propose to evaluate the oral epithelium of chronic e-cigarette smokers and those who have never smoked Continue reading

HBB gene – Genetics Home Reference

Sickle cell anemia, a common form of sickle cell disease, is caused by a particular mutation in the HBB gene. This mutation results in the production of an abnormal version of beta-globin called hemoglobin S or HbS. In this condition, hemoglobin S replaces both beta-globin subunits in hemoglobin. Continue reading

CRISPR editing is advancing precision medicine, this time …

Scientists from Boston University School of Medicine and Klogene Therapeutics have made precision medicine news this week by showing efficient transcriptional activation of the anti-aging multifunctional gene Klotho by CRISPR-dCas9, as reported in a paper published today in the "Journal of Molecular Neuroscience." CRISPR is a gene editing tool first introduced six years ago. Continue reading
