Abstract

Telomeres consist of long nucleotide repeats and a protein complex at chromosome ends essential for chromosome stability. Telomeres shorten with each cell division and thus are markers of cellular age. Dyskeratosis congenita (DC) is a cancer-prone inherited bone marrow failure syndrome ...read more

Lung Fibrosis & Scleroderma

Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune disease that leads to hardening of connective tissues in the body. Lung fibrosis and disease is one of the leading causes of deaths in patients with scleroderma. Here is the latest research.

Esophageal Carcinoma

Esophageal carcinoma has two main subtypes, esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma and esophageal adenocarcinoma. Several factors, both genetic and environmental, have been shown to increase risk of developing esophageal carcinoma. Here is the latest research.

Telomere Dysfunction

Telomere dysfunction in response to critical telomere shortening induces dna damage checkpoints that lead to cell cycle arrest and/or cell death.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

Hereditary Cancer Syndromes

Hereditary cancer syndromes comprise 5% of all cancers and have an increased risk of early onset and of multiple or bilateral malignancies. Here is the latest research on hereditary cancer syndromes.
