TGen and international team find new avenues of precision medicine for treating cancer
(The Translational Genomics Research Institute) An international team of scientists, including those at the Translational Genomic Research Institute, have discovered new avenues of potential treatments for a rare and deadly cancer known as adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC). In a study published today in the scientific journal Cancer Cell, researchers conducted an extensive genomic profile of ACC, a cancer of the adrenal glands, located above the kidneys. Current treatment options for ACC have not changed in decades and are not curative. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

TERT promoter mutations in adrenal tumours
The telomerase reverse transcriptase gene (TERT) is essential for telomere stabilization and cell immortalization. A role for TERT promoter mutations C228T and C250T has been demonstrated in aggressive human cancer. The underlying mechanisms of telomerase activation is not known in adrenal tumors. Liu and colleagues assessed C228T and C250T TERT mutations, finding that TERT promoter mutation C228T is a recurrent event associated with adrenocortical carcinoma, but rarely occurs in paraganglioma or pheochromocytoma. The involvement of the TERT gene in adrenocortical carcinoma is a new finding. Read the full article at Liu e...

Monday's pick of the day
The first day of BES 2014 kicks off with a host of varied, topical symposia, clinical management workshops, and an applied physiology workshop. Look out for our first education workshop at 15.45, room 3B Teaching and learning in endocrinology. Make sure you catch Peter Taylor’s talk at 13.45, room 1A on the link between low thyroid hormone levels and a genetic variant, and the development of low IQ. The work is covered today in news stories in the Telegraph, BBC and Mail online. The abstract is the Clinical Endocrinology Trust top-scoring clinical abstract. We are grateful to our industry supporters who have en...
