New CRISPR method strategically targets gene mutations to correct DMD heart defect

2 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have developed a CRISPR technique to efficiently correct the function of heart cells in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). It involves making a single cut at strategic points...Show More Summary

New CRISPR method efficiently corrects DMD defect in heart tissue

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) Scientists have developed a CRISPR gene-editing technique that can potentially correct a majority of the 3,000 mutations that cause Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) by making a single cut at strategic points along the patient's DNA, according to a study from UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Following treatment guidelines more important than volume for assessing heart failure care

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) Looking at how well hospitals adhere to treatment guidelines for heart failure is more important than comparing patient volumes at hospitals, new research shows.

Simmons Cancer Center researchers part of historic CAR-T breakthrough

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) A historic study involving researchers from UT Southwestern's Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center demonstrates the effectiveness of CAR-T therapy, which uses genetically modified immune cells to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia in children and young adults.

Researchers demonstrate RAS dimers are essential for cancer

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) Researchers at UT Southwestern's Simmons Cancer Center have shown that RAS molecules act in pairs, known as dimers, to cause cancer, findings that could help guide them to a treatment.

Proper exercise can reverse damage from heart aging

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) Exercise can reverse damage to sedentary, aging hearts and help prevent risk of future heart failure -- if it's enough exercise, and if it's begun in time, according to a new study by cardiologists at UT Southwestern and Texas Health Resources.

Precision Editing of Gut Bacteria: Potential Way to Treat Colitis

UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have used precision editing of the bacterial populations in the gut to prevent or reduce the severity of inflammation in a mouse model of colitis.

State-of-the-art MRI technology bypasses need for biopsy

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) The most common type of tumor found in the kidney is generally quite small (less than 1.5 in). These tumors are usually found by accident when CAT scans are performed for other reasons and the serendipitous finding poses a problem for doctors.

FDA-approved high blood pressure drug extends life span in roundworms

DALLAS - Dec. 20, 2017 - UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers find that an FDA-approved drug to treat high blood pressure seems to extend life span in worms via a cell signaling pathway that may mimic caloric restriction. The drug, hydralazine, extended life span about 25 percent in two strains of C. Show More Summary

CLOCK gene may hold answers to human brain evolution

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) A gene controlling our biological clocks plays a vital role in regulating human-specific genes important to brain evolution. The findings from the O'Donnell Brain Institute open new paths of research into how CLOCK proteins produced by the CLOCK gene affect brain function and the processes by which neurons find their proper place in the brain.

UTSW researchers identify possible new way to treat parasitic infections

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have identified a chemical that suppresses the lethal form of a parasitic infection caused by roundworms that affects up to 100 million people and usually causes only mild symptoms.
