Prader-Willi Syndrome

Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is a rare genetic disorder caused by missing or non-working genes on chromosome 15. In infancy, symptoms include hypotonia, feeding difficulties, and delayed development; later on, affected children develop an extreme appetite, typically resulting in obesity. Here is the latest research on this complex multisystem disorder.

22q11 Deletion Syndrome

22q11.2 deletion syndrome, also known as DiGeorge syndrome, is a congenital disorder caused by a partial deletion of chromosome 22. Symptoms include heart defects, poor immune system function, a cleft palate, complications related to low levels of calcium in the blood, and delayed development. Discover the latest research on this disease here.

4H Leukodystrophy

4H Leukodystrophy involves hypomyelination with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and hypodontia. It is also known as POLR-3 Related Leukodystrophy. 4H syndrome symptoms include delayed or abnormal puberty, issues with central nervous system signal transmission, abnormal development of teeth, and symptoms tend to progressively get worse over time. Here is the latest research on this disease.

AAV-based Gene Therapy

Adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based gene therapy is a biological vector that is being researched to be used as a potential therapeutic option. This gene therapy is designed to insert fragments of DNA into targeted cells to help treat diseases, such as hemophilia a. Discover the latest research on AAV-based gene therapy here.

ALS: Genetics

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle weakness. ALS is a genetically heterogeneous disorder with several causative genes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the genetics of this disease.

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia & RNA

Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a common hematological type of cancer. As the population ages, there has been a rise in the frequency of AML. RNA expression has been used to see if there are different genetic profiles that exist within AML and whether these may underpin the variations in survival rates. Here is the latest research on AML and RNA.
