Using Next-Generation Sequencing to Understand and Treat Disease

How time flies! It seems almost impossible that the many events of 2003 are now almost ten years in the past. It’s also hard to believe that the completion of the Human Genome Project, a government-led initiative involving researchers from all around the world, was nearly a decade ago.

Some Kids With Heart Defects May Experience Abnormal Growth Regulation

Children who are born with complex heart defects like congenital heart disease can often have poor growth. A new study from a pediatric cardiologist and her team at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia suggests that that this poor growth may stem from factors beyond deficient nutrition, and may include abnormalities in overall growth regulation.

Study Finds Link Between Genes and Lifespan

Several gene variants can influence a person’s potential lifespan by either raising the probability of developing a disease or by providing protection from disease, according to new research from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Searching for the Signs of Autism in Infants

One out of 88 children in the United States has been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. There is no cure and relatively few treatments that work well for everyone on the autism spectrum. But research, including ground-breaking studies on infants, is making great strides to better understanding autism spectrum disorders.

Unlocking the Secrets of Mitochondria

A team led by CHOP’s Marni J. Falk, MD, has expanded next-generation gene tools designed to sequence nuclear DNA to analyze a separate source of DNA — that found within mitochondria. Mitochondria are key suppliers of the energy needed for the multiple functions of our cells. Mitochondria contain their own DNA, and play a pivotal role in human health and disease.

The Human Genome — Yep, There’s an App for That!

It’s been nearly a decade since scientists completed the Human Genome Project — a scientific marvel that, in its essence, provided the blueprint for the genetic make-up of humans.

The Cornerstone of Personalized Medicine

The idea of “personalized” medicine isn’t just about a one-on-one encounter with a doctor, the use of sophisticated mobile applications, or heightened access to healthcare providers, medical records, and services. Personalized medicine also extends into the depths of who each of us are at our essence — to our individual genetic makeup.

Longer CPR Saves Lives in Children and Adults

Two recently published studies show that extending cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) longer than previously thought useful saves lives in children and adults. The research teams analyzed the impact of duration of CPR in patients who suffered cardiac arrest while hospitalized.
