Blood cell ratios correlate with leukaemia risk

A new study, published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, has reported that genetically induced shifts in blood cell […]

Evolutionary selection of mutations in blood controls disease progression

A new study, published in Nature Communications, has developed a machine learning model that can identify the evolutionary pressures acting […]

The promise of glioma detection using blood plasma and urine samples

Researchers have developed two novel methods to detect a brain tumour (glioma) using cell-free DNA in the blood plasma and […]

Blood stem cells are linked to the progression of aggressive brain tumours

Using transcriptome analysis and gene expression sequencing, researchers have discovered that blood stem cells (HSPCs) cause increased cell division in […]

CRISPR injected into the blood treats genetic disease

For the first time, researchers have injected CRISPR into the blood of people with a genetic disease and shown that […]

Blood cancers originate decades before diagnosis

Researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and EMBL-EBI have reconstructed the lineage history of individual hematopoietic stem […]

Making a murderer: How African Salmonella jumped from gut to bloodstream

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have harnessed the combined power of genomics and epidemiology to understand how a type […]

A New Blood-Based Model for Dementia

There are nearly 50 million people living with dementia globally. Furthermore, ~50-70% of all dementia cases are caused by Alzheimer’s […]

High Blood Pressure Could Increase Your Risk of Pneumonia

Epidemiological analyses have linked hypertension to an increased risk of pneumonia. This study from the UK biobank confirmed this correlation […]
