Integrated protein “communications” networks link genetic variations to complex aging-related diseases

Addressing one of the largest remaining knowledge gaps in biomedical science, researchers from Novartis, SomaLogic, and the Icelandic Heart Association have found a way to tie genetic variations to complex disorders, such as heart disease and diabetes. Their findings, published online today in the journal Science, demonstrate that communication between networks of proteins can explain the connections between genes and diseases.

Translating the “Book of Life”

An article published today in the journal Nature brings us closer to understanding how differences in the genomes of individuals help contribute to common diseases and influence disease risk. Specifically, this study – by far the largest of its kind to date – revealed the effects of genetic variations on the levels of circulating blood proteins across thousands of individuals.

Large-scale profiling of blood proteins identifies new markers of heart damage

A new report published online in the American Heart Association journal Circulation describes the successful measurement of changes in blood proteins at a previously unattainable scale. The results revealed a large number of proteins that increased significantly soon after a heart attack—some that are well-known markers of myocardial damage but many that are completely new. This proof-of-principle study demonstrates that comprehensive protein profiling to diagnose and treat human health and disease is on the horizon.
