  • New Sequence Capture Technology Allows Targeted Sequencing for Human Exomes

    Targeted exome sequencing enables the discovery of many of the functional variations that are responsible for various diseases. Exome sequencing can also shed light on why diseases occur more often in certain populations, and can help uncover why drugs are effective only in a subset of the patients or population. The prevailing method for complexity reduction has been the preparation of amplicons by parallel, multiplex, or long-range PCR amplification. These PCR methods have severe cost and performance limitations, when scaled to the level required to take full advantage of the capacity of currently available sequencing systems. As a result, the bottleneck for sequencing projects has shifted to sample preparation more

  • Rare Variants of IFIH1 Protect Against Type-1 Diabetes

    Nejentsev and co-workers have found that rare alleles of all associated IFIH1 polymorphisms consistently protect from type-1 diabetes, whereas IFIH1 alleles carried by the majority of the population predispose to the disease. This observation suggests that variants that disrupt IFIH1 function in the host antiviral response have been negatively selected rather than positively selected, because they confer protection from type-1 diabetes. Although the mechanisms by which IFIH1 polymorphisms contribute to type-1 diabetes pathogenesis remain to be explored, the authors noted that one of the protective variants is a non-sense mutation leading to a truncated 626-amino acid protein lacking the C-terminal helicase domain (Figure 1), whereas two other protective variants localize to the conserved splice donor sites and probably disrupt normal splicing of the IFIH1 transcript. This suggests that variants, which are predicted to reduce function of the IFIH1 protein, would decrease the risk of type-1 diabetes, whereas n more

  • Orphan Drugs – An Alternative to the declining Blockbuster Model?

    Up until the new millennium, the pharmaceutical industry grew stronger by 11%. However, the blockbuster model is increasingly at risk and the declining growth rates in the industry require a search for new strategies. In this context, orphan drugs are becoming increasingly important more
