The Journal of Gene Medicine | RG Impact & Description …

Background/objectives: Selenoprotein P (SeP) is involved in transporting selenium from the liver to target tissues. As SeP confers protection against disease by reducing chronic oxidative stress, this study aims to assess the level of SeP in the serum of patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS) with a history of cardiovascular disease (CVD).Subjects/methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on 63 and 71 subjects with and without MetS in the presence of documented CVD. All demographic, anthropometric and with cardiometabolic variables (lipids, blood glucose, blood pressure) were assessed. Continue reading

Gene Editing Pioneers Receive Americas Most Distinguished …

Gene Editing Pioneers Selected to Receive Americas Most Distinguished Prize in Medicine August 15, 2017 – Albany, NY For their roles in the creation of a remarkable gene editing system that has been called the discovery of the century, five researchers have been announced as the recipients of the Albany Medical Center Prize in Medicine and Biomedical Research for 2017. All five awardees have made important contributions to the development of CRISPR-Cas9, a gene engineering technology that harnesses a naturally occurring bacterial immune system process. The technology has revolutionized biomedical research and provided new hope for the treatment of genetic diseases and more Continue reading

UCLA Human Genetics

The Department of Human Genetics is the youngest basic science department in the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. When the Department was launched just prior to the sequencing of the human genome, it was clear that the practice of genetics research would be forever changed by the infusion of massive amounts of new data. Continue reading
