More than a third of the U.S. Population carry obesity gene, the brain tissue lossThree years ago, reported the geneticists the startling discovery that nearly half of all people in the U.S. Carry with European descent, a variant of the fat mass and obesity gene, which causes them to gain weight – 3-7 pounds, on average – but worse is, they are at risk for obesity.
Population is at risk for a variety of diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. With magnetic resonance imaging, produced the researchers dimensional ‘maps ‘of brain volume differences drawn in 206 healthy elderly subjects from 58 sites in the U.S. As part of the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, is a large, five-year study to better understand factors the disease to resist the brain as help the elderly.. Coverage in the early online edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, senior study author Paul Thompson, a UCLA professor of neurology, lead authors April Ho and Jason Stein, PhD discovered in laboratory Thompson and colleagues found that the FTO variant is also associated with loss of brain tissue.The period I clinical trial data underscore the role which genetic modifications other than the to BRAF is has shown a patient experience the resistant to targeted BRAF inhibitor, a targeted treatment, unprecedented game play with metastatic disease.
