Epigenetic Predisposition to Radiation Fibrosis
Radiotherapy is a highly efficient treatment for many cancers including breast cancer. Intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT), a relatively new type of radiation therapy, has proven successful as a curative treatment for early cancer stages.... [Read more on EpiBeat]
Transient Imprinting of Genes in the Human Placenta
When the fertilization occurs, the maternal and paternal pronuclei have thousands of opposite methylated regions. Most of this germline methylation are resolved during the postfertilization epigenetic reprogramming by active mechanism... [Read more on EpiBeat]
Epigenetic Diagnostics: Locus-specific DNA Methylation Testing Poised for Clinical Impact
Precision medicine holds great potential to make a direct positive impact in the clinic. A growing number of diagnostic panels addressing a list of disease indications are now available for testing. Currently most tests are designed... [Read more on EpiBeat]
Epigenetic Dysregulation Within the Brainstem in Alzheimer’s Disease
The elusive nature of the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) impedes scientific breakthroughs in diagnostics or efficient therapeutics for this devastating disorder. To date, the long-prevailing theories of genetic contribution... [Read more on EpiBeat]
