Diversity in Your Gut Influences Your Health

By Center for Individualized Medicine Center for Individualized Medicine (@samuelsmith5209)

    Before reaching for that daily antacid, you might consider what it’s doing to the trillions of bugs living in your gut. A new Mayo Clinic study in the open access journal Microbiome shows that people who regularly take proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have less diversity among their gut bacteria, putting them at increased […]

Findings Reveal Relationship with TP63 & p63 Protein Expression in Lung Adenocarcinoma

By Center for Individualized Medicine Center for Individualized Medicine (@samuelsmith5209)

    Using next-generation sequencing analysis of mate-pair DNA libraries, a group of researchers from the Center for Individualized Medicine recently identified novel chromosomal rearrangements involving TP63 in approximately 6% in peripheral T-cell lymphomas and demonstrated that these were associated with a poorer overall survival than lymphomas without these rearrangements. These rearrangements also were found in occasional B-cell […]
