Teams of geneticists from nine countries, involving more than 100 scientists, analyzed the genes of more than 33,000 individuals in the hope of finding genetic variations responsible for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss among people age 50 or older. Their research, involving complex computational analysis of more than 12 million genetic variations across the human genome, identified 52 variations associated with the disease.

Health-care tech and data analysis offer huge potential to the National Health Service but they also come with risks. However, while the concerns raised about security are valid, they are not insurmountable.  Digital technology has unleashed a scale of transformation that was hard to imagine a few decades ago. Today we use contactless credit cards that don’t require a Pin to authenticate them; we carry personal tracking devices that allow our every move to be recorded (they...

L'organisation...

Once the three-billion-letter-long human genome was sequenced, we rushed into a new "omics" era of biological research. Scientists are now racing to sequence the genomes (all the genes) or proteomes (all the proteins) of various organisms – and in the process are compiling massive amounts of data.

Le projet de loi pour une République numérique devra donc s’y conformer, ce qui impliquera de l’adapter en cours de procédure...L’action de la CNIL confortée mais le montant des sanctions inchangé Le projet de loi tend également à renforcer les pouvoirs de la CNIL et à conforter ainsi son engagement dans la régulation du numérique et son activité d’accompagnement des particuliers, des...

The role of big data in medicine Technology is revolutionizing our understanding and treatment of disease, says the founding director of the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at New York’s Mount Sinai Health System. Most companies make a conscious and deliberate decision to embrace digitization and the information revolution. Yet the role of big data in medicine seems almost to compel organizations to become involved. In this interview, Dr. Eric Schadt, the founding...

HIV transmission from mother to child is a major, and preventable, factor in the ongoing prevalence of AIDS in Africa. While transmission rates are below 5% with effective prenatal treatment, the World Health Organization says they can range up to 45% without treatment —unfortunately, a common situation in the developing world. Postnatal testing, then, is often vital in spotting infections in newborns, and treating them. But even as testing has become more accessible in Africa, it has...

There is great potential for health analytics in the UK, with big data having received widespread attention in the healthcare sector in recent years. There are thoughts that the large volume of data being collected by the NHS, supplemented by independent...

Genomic Health today announced results from multiple Oncotype DX breast cancer test studies at the 38th CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) reconfirming that the Oncotype DX test accurately predicts clinical outcomes, including risk of recurrence and breast cancer survival, in patients with early-stage invasive breast cancer. Data include results from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program of the U.S. National Cancer Institute...
