Could the Food we Eat Affect Our Genes?
Almost all of our genes may be influenced by the food we eat, according to new research.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Microbiome May Hold the Key to Fighting Obesity
In a unique study of free-ranging brown bears, Swedish researchers were able to show that the bears’ dietary variation goes hand-in-hand with dramatic changes in the animal’s gut microbiota.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells
Microreactor replaces animal testing.
Proteins Seek, Attack, Destroy Tumor Cells in Bloodstream
Using white blood cells to ferry potent cancer-killing proteins through the bloodstream virtually eliminates metastatic prostate cancer in mice, Cornell researchers have confirmed.
Why Do Some Infections Persist?
In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found.
Flipping Molecular 'Switch' May Reduce Nicotine's Effects in the Brain
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered that a lipid (fat molecule) in brain cells may act as a “switch” to increase or decrease the motivation to consume nicotine.

Multiplexed Diagnostics 2010

The multiplexed diagnostics market has grown rapidly and generated sales of approximately $2.4 billon in 2009, but is now balanced on multiple tipping points. Will the FDA finally release the updated IVDMIA guidelines? If so, will the FDA close the CLIA loophole and/or will the FDA require 510(k) approvals for all multivariate diagnostics? Will Genomic Health and Agendia be able to maintain high prices for their flagship tests amidst growing competition? How many new tests will reach the market in 2010? Does the inability of Genomic Health’s new colon cancer diagnostic to predict response to chemotherapy indicate ongoing challenges in developing new multivariate diagnostics or is this an isolated example? Will growing competition lead to market confusion? In situations with similar tests, how will physicians and payers decide? Will they want to see more prospective clinical trials? Will prospective clinical trials be more attractive due to the experience of XDx? As multiplexed diagnostics become more established, will physicians and payers begin to actively seek these new tests to increase the efficiency of healthcare? Will changes in healthcare policies, especially in the US, be a net positive because of the expanded use of tests (for aging and expanding populations) or a net negative because of cost controls? Will new multiplexing technologies, such as MagPix from Luminex and BeadXpress from Illumina, create another shift in the market or are diagnostics laboratories becoming entrenched with current methods? Will new biomarkers, such as microRNA and methylated DNA, be more powerful than gene expression levels? For genetic tests, how far will multiplexing go? Is Counsyl’s combination of 100 genetic tests only the beginning? If so, will the increasing complexity of genetic tests usher in the era of diagnostic DNA sequencing?

On the whole, the multiplexed diagnostics market is expected to tip in favor of continued rapid growth, reaching almost $5.8 billion in 2015, according to a new report, Multiplexed Diagnostics 2010, published by Select Biosciences and written by BioPerspectives and Bachmann Consulting. This report explains the unmet needs, trends, regulations, reimbursement, competition, technologies and business strategies. This 572-page report includes a survey of more than 400 respondents, interviews with 12 experts, a detailed database of more than 190 commercial multiplexed diagnostics and a two-tiered quantitative worldwide market model. In addition, the report comes with one hour of consulting (in the form of a conference call) with one of the authors, Dr. Steven Bodovitz, Principal of BioPerspectives, or Dr. Jutta Bachmann, CEO of Bachmann Consulting.
