Pathologists call for new training program to support personalized medicine
Doctors in the Department of Pathology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) have issued "A Call to Action" for the medical profession to catch up with the technology and business communities in the application of genomics to personalized health care.  View News Article (2010-07-01)

Patient outcomes linked to biomarker levels by quantitative technology
Researchers in the Department of Pathology at Yale University School of Medicine report that when using current pathology methods of biomarker detection, the concentration of antibodies used dramatically alters the apparent relationship of biomarker level to clinical outcome. View News Article (2005-12-21)

Prevalence of prenatal brain damage amongst infant deaths investigated
The researchers are currently completing a two-year, Scotland-wide study of the prevalence of prenatal brain damage in almost 400 babies who died around the time of their birth. The next, linked, project will be to look at a possible connection between the apolipoprotein E gene (ApoE) and brain damage in babies. This gene has a known association with vascular and neurodegenerative diseases in... View News Article (1999-10-28)

CT colonography detects wide-range of extracolonic abnormalities in elderly patients
CT colonography (CTC), when used in elderly patients, can detect a high number of new and significant abnormalities outside the colon (including cirrhosis and tumors) and is well tolerated, according to a recent study conducted by researchers at St. James's University Hospital in Leeds, United Kingdom (UK). View News Article (2007-11-16)

Other Illnesses, Body Weight Do Not Explain Racial Disparities in Colon Cancer Survival, UAB Researchers Say
A new study by University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) researchers shows that body-mass index (BMI) and co-existing medical conditions (co-morbidity) do not explain the decreased survival observed among African-Americans compared to Caucasians who also have colon cancer.  View News Article (2009-11-24)

UAB Researchers Discover Antibody Receptor Identity, Propose Renaming Immune-System Gene
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) have uncovered the genetic identity of a cellular receptor for the immune system's first-response antibody, a discovery that sheds new light on infection control and immune disorders.  View News Article (2009-11-20)

Newly identified antibodies effectively treat Alzheimer's-like disease in mice
