Molecular brochure

  1. 1. “GENETIC COMPOSITION OFMULTICENTRIC LUNG TUMORS APPEARS TO BE SIMILAR” AND “SCHIZOPHRENIA RESEARCH, A PATH TO THE BRAIN THROUGH THE NOSE” María del Pilar Agudelo - Medical Student UPB
  2. 2. Brochure
  3. 3. Brochure
  4. 4. Introduction Early detection and prediction of diseases. It‟s important to understand the patient‟s characteristics and genetic predispositionNeural stem cells genes
  5. 5. Science Daily “Schizophrenia Research a Path to the Brain Through the Nose” (Jan. 25, 2012)
  6. 6. “Schizophrenia Research a Path tothe Brain Through the Nose” An obstacle to progress in understanding psychiatric disorders: obtaining living brain tissue for study. The sense organ of smell is continually regenerating new sensory neurons
  7. 7. “Schizophrenia Research a Path tothe Brain Through the Nose” Sensory neurons from stem cells can be collected by biopsy. Stem Cells from patients with schizophrenia are compared with healthy individuals.
  8. 8. “Schizophrenia Research a Path tothe Brain Through the Nose” Patients cells proliferate faster “This is an important finding, as scientists are already aware of many developmental abnormalities in the „schizophrenia brain‟” (Mackay- Sim)
  9. 9. Observation I think this kind of investigations has to go on and improve each day. Schizophrenia is a really awesome and deep disease who has so much to say
  10. 10. Science Daily “Genetic Composition of Multicentric Lung Tumors Appears to be Similar” (Jan. 9, 2012)
  11. 11. “Genetic Composition of MulticentricLung Tumors Appears to Be Similar” EGFR and KRAS genes can be used to define clinically relevant molecular subsets of lung adenocarcinoma. Can define tumor clonaty.
  12. 12. “Genetic Composition of MulticentricLung Tumors Appears to Be Similar” The information on genetic status of multiple lung cancers might be able to presume the genetic background for carcinogenesis of the lung.
  13. 13. “Genetic Composition of MulticentricLung Tumors Appears to Be Similar” “These findings demonstrate that multicentric carcinogenesis under the same genetic backgrounds occurs in lung adenocarcinoma” (Dr. Sugio)
  14. 14. Observation Genetic studies allows the identification and characterization of a large number of pathologies. Such works do nothing but improve medicine as we know it and provide better treatments and patients control.
  15. 15. ClinicalRelevance
  16. 16. Clinical Relevance The olfactory tissue biopsy lets the medicine in a direct approach to the schizophrenia process
  17. 17. Clinical Relevance the study of genes related to lung tumors is going to help our doctors to predict the tumor clonality and presume genetic backgrounds for carcinogenesis of the lung.
  18. 18. Clinical Relevance Early diagnostic and prompt treatment.
  19. 19. Bibliography
