Authors: Schroader B, Kong SX, Anderson S, Williamson T, Sireci A, Shields K Abstract INTRODUCTION: The development of precision medicine and targeted therapies have revolutionized cancer treatment. Historically, treatment was chosen based on the tumor-histology, but can now be tailored to patient-specific actionable biomarkers. Investigations have shown up to 40% of cancer patients who undergo molecular testing have an actionable biomarker with a drug currently available, and that patients benefit from these drugs. In 2018, larotrectinib became the first drug developed and approved exclusively as a tumor-agnostic ...

In the past few blogs, I've been discussing the recent publication of my book,Evolution ’s Clinical Guidebook: Translating Ancient Genes Into Precision Medicine. The premise of this book is that modern medicine is based on an understanding of evolutionary processes. Evolution shows us the relationships between the subdisciplines of medicine that benefit directly from Precision Medicine (i.e., pathology, microbiology, clinical genetics, pharmacology, and bioinformatics). In Evolution's Clinical Guidebook, all of these diverse fields are brought together, under the subject of evolution. To illustrate, I have listed bel...

Discussion Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) is a rare genetic syndrome first characterized by Silver in 1953 and Russell in 1954. Patients with SRS have characteristic growth patterns and clinical findings, although within an individual patient there are phenotypical differences. Patients are born small-for-gestational age (SGA) but have a relative macrocephaly. There is postnatal growth failure and difficulty feeding, with a very low body mass index. Body asymmetry (e.g. hemihypertrophy) and facial features (i.e. protruding forehead, triangular facies, micrognathia, dental anomalies, downturned mouth corners, and ear anomali...

The objective was to describe the main causes of hospitalization in people with Angelman syndrome (AS). MethodPopulation‐based cross‐sectional study in the Community of Madrid (CM), Spain. The information source for AS cases was the information system for rare diseases in the CM. Variables related to hospitalization, for the period 2006–2014, were the following: number of episodes, outcome, main cause, length of stay and type of admission. Main causes of hospitalization were described by age group and sex. ResultsThe most frequent causes of hospitalization were the following: oral–dental care (28.9%), seizu...
