What can we do with Gastrointestinal Organoids?

Researchers review the latest discoveries from studies of tissue-derived and pluripotent stem cell–derived intestinal, gastric, esophageal, liver, and pancreatic organoids in the May issue of Gastroenterology. Studies of organoids have provided valuable information about GI development, tissue homeostasis, and disease and might be used to develop personalized medicines. In vitro organoid cultures are

Genetic Analysis of Tumors Could Improve With Proper Controls

Up to two thirds of mutations identified in tumors also exist in matched, non-tumor tissues, researchers have found. It is therefore important for oncologists to identify the mutations that actually promote the progression of a patient’s tumor before selecting therapy. The finding, published in Science Translational Medicine on 15 April, comes
