European Journal of Human Genetics: New challenges for BRCA testing: a view from the diagnostic laboratory

Many diagnostic laboratories are adopting next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to increase their screening capacity and reduce processing time and unit costs. However, migration to NGS introduces complexities arising from choice of components of the BRCA testing workflow, such as NGS platform, enrichment method and bioinformatics analysis process. An efficient, cost-effective accurate mutation detection strategy and a standardised, systematic approach to the reporting of BRCA test results is imperative for diagnostic laboratories.

Research article: Analysis of Founder Mutations in Rare Tumors Associated With Hereditary Breast/ Ovarian Cancer Reveals a Novel Association of BRCA2 Mutations with Ampulla of Vater Carcinomas

A total of 102 male breast, 68 pancreatic and 33 peritoneal/fallopian tube carcinoma cases were included in the study. The BRCA2 c.156_157insAlu mutation was observed with a frequency of 7.8% in male breast cancers, 3.0% in peritoneal/fallopian tube cancers, and 1.6% in pancreatic cancers, with estimated total contributions of germline BRCA2 mutations of 14.3%, 5.5%, and 2.8%, respectively. No carriers of the BRCA1 c.3331_3334del mutation were identified.

Biovox - How to invest in Biotech - Rudi Mariën

"The current biotech landscape is full of interesting companies with a lot of potential. A great example is Multiplicom. They are doing a really good job with their genetic testing kits; they developed a BRCA test for detecting breast cancer – 1 in 2 labs uses their kits – and they just launched their line of NIPT prenatal tests. There's a good team in charge and the company has products on the market. This is an excellent position for a company to be in!"(...)

AACR Publications: Highly sensitive and cost-effective detection of somatic cancer variants using single-molecule, real-time sequencing

Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing offers several advantages, including the ability to sequence single molecules with very high accuracy (>QV40) using the circular consensus sequencing (CCS) approach. The availability of genetically defined, human genomic reference standards provides an industry standard for the development and quality control of molecular assays for studying cancer variants.

Canadian Journal of Diabetes: Searching for Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY): When and What for?

Maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY) is a group of monogenic diseases that results in primary defects in insulin secretion and dominantly inherited forms of nonautoimmune diabetes. Although many genes may be associated with monogenic diabetes, heterozygous mutations in 6 of them are responsible for the majority of cases of MODY.
