New research findings from IGP
Genes associated with hearing loss visualised in new study
Researchers at IGP and the Department of Surgical Sciences have shown in a new study that differences in the risk of age-related hearing loss is partly due to genetic factors that affect structures and functions in the human inner ear. The study was recently published in BMC Medicine.
Cardia cancer in Chinese patients could be due to local dietary habits
In an area in northern China, cancer in the cardia occurs at high rates and the cancer type has distinct features compared to Western countries. Together with Chinese colleagues, Xingqi Chen’s research group at IGP have found that the presence of many copies of the ERBB2 gene can be correlated with better prognosis for patients with cardia cancer. The genetic alterations could be due to local dietary habits in the area.
New knowledge from small amounts of archived tissue samples
Researchers at IGP have developed a novel method to study histone modifications in very small amounts of archived tissue samples. The method can be used to increase the knowledge about epigenetic alterations in cancer and other diseases and has been recently described in the journal Nucleic Acids Research.
