NIH Asks for Comments Regarding the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI)
Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. NIH seeks feedback, specifically regarding community engagement strategies, to help guide creating the cohort for the PMI. Submit comments by June 19, 2015.
Protein Linked to Dermatomyositis Found to Have Role in Regenerating Muscle
Many people with a rare muscle disease called dermatomyositis carry antibodies to a protein called T1F1γ, but the proteinís role in normal and diseased muscle has been elusive. New NIAMS research shows that T1F1γ has a role in muscle regeneration.
Stem Cell-Based Strategies Offer Personalized Approaches For Treating Inherited Skin Disease
Two new studies describe efforts to develop stem cell-based approaches for treating Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare, genetic skin disease. People with EB have skin so fragile that the slightest friction causes blisters.
Long-term Follow-up Data From Large Orthopaedic Studies May Help Guide Clinical Practice
Musculoskeletal conditions like spinal stenosis and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in the knee affect people of all ages and can be debilitating. Recently reported long-term data provide clinically valuable insights into outcomes associated with treatments.
Osteocyte Cultures Go to the International Space Station
With support from NIAMS, NASA, and others, the Osteocytes and mechano-transduction (Osteo-4) investigation team at NASA will analyze the effects of microgravity on osteocytes, a type of bone cell. Understanding these effects could have implications for patients on Earth who have metabolic diseases such as osteoporosis.
