A JAMA study has found that hemoglobin A1C measurements — a biomarker frequently used to diagnose diabetes — may be less accurate in African-Americans with sickle cell trait.
A Northwestern Medicine study has established a new safety index for a common group of chemotherapy drugs, by using a stem cell model to screen such therapies for cardiotoxicity.
A paper published in Molecular Cell provides new insight into a protein complex called COMPASS and its function during histone methylation, a key modification that regulates gene expression.
A new strategy for targeting a protein called GRP78 could be used to simultaneously provide diagnostic imaging and deliver treatment for inflammatory breast cancer, according to a recent study.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have received a $7.5 million grant to study how genetic information from African American patients can predict their responses to medications.
When it comes to gene regulation, there are more similarities between fruit flies and humans than previously thought, according to new Northwestern Medicine research.
Identifying mutations in the estrogen receptor (ER) gene can help clinicians choose effective therapies for patients with ER-positive metastatic breast cancer, according to recent research.
New research describes a never-before-observed identity switch in differentiated cells derived from so-called induced pluripotent stem cells.
Northwestern Medicine scientists and collaborators discovered that mutations in the TEK gene lead to primary congenital glaucoma, validating previous findings in mice and suggesting a target for future therapies.
