Cystic hygroma


A Cystic hygroma is a fluid filled sacs which occurs due to blockage in the Lymphatic system. It mostly occurs in neck and head area, but it can be found anywhere in the body. It may be found in a baby during a pregnancy ultrasound, or it may be clear at birth as a delicate bulge beneath the skin. Cystic hygromas influence 1 in 800 pregnancies and 1 in 8,000 live births. In 80% of cases, cystic hygromas show up on the face, counting the head, neck, mouth, cheek, or tongue. The growths may also occurs in other parts of the body; i.e. armpits, chest, legs, chest, buttocks and groin.

When it is distinguished on pregnancy ultrasound, there's an increased chance for miscarriage. In some cases, it isn't found until a person is older. Indications can change depending on its size and the particular area, and it can possibly cause issues with adjacent structures or organs.

Cystic hygromas usually influence children, but there have been uncommon cases of them showing up in adulthood.


The Cystic hygromas is caused due to environmental and genetic factors both. The exact cause of cystic hygromas isn't known but hereditary anomalies are present in around 25% to 75% of influenced children. The disease is more common in people with Turner syndrome, Down syndrome, or Klinefelter syndrome.


Symptoms may vary depending on the area of the cysts. A few children may not encounter any indications other than the growth.

If a child has symptoms, they may include:

·         fluid-filled sacs on the tongue

·         large cysts that appear blue

·         obstructive sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that causes breathing to stop and start

·         breathing and feeding difficulties

·         failure to thrive

·         bone and teeth abnormalities

In rare cases, the hygromas may bleed or become infected.


Designer baby

A designer baby is a genetically modified organism whose DNA sequencing has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. It is not a general way of Genetically Modified Organism or GMO which are used in the production of different types of medications, foods, and persuading scientific research. It is a great milestone in the field of human genetics. The designer baby which is made in vitro condition chooses the uncommon characteristics, which can change from lowered disease-risk to gender determination. The DNA sequence of the baby is altered by the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism or deletion of a particular sequence.

With the growing research and technologies, scientists are developing new methods of genetic engineering and getting closer to being able to fiddle with the genes of a human embryo.

Designer babies represent an area inside embryology that has not ended up a practical reality till now, but in any case, draws out ethical concerns about whether or not it'll get to be fundamental to execute limitations regarding designer babies within the future.

Pros and Cons of Designer Babies


·         Reduces risk of genetic diseases

·         Reduces risk of inherited medical conditions

·         Keep pace with others doing it

·         Better chance the child will succeed in life

·         A better understanding of genetics

·         Increased life span

·         a completely new gene can be given to the child (non-hereditary)

·         Preventing the next generation from having any hereditary disease.


·         Termination of embryos

·         Could create a gap in society

·         The possibility of damage to the gene pool

·         Baby has no choice in the matter

·         Genes often have more than one use

·         Geneticists are not perfect

·         Loss of Individuality

·         Other children in the family could be affected by the parent's decision

·         Only the rich can afford it


Cancer epigenetics

Epigenetic mechanisms are fundamental for normal development and maintenance of tissue-specific gene expression patterns in warm-blooded animals. Disturbance of epigenetic processes can lead to altered gene work and dangerous cellular transformation. Worldwide changes within the epigenetic landscape are a trademark of cancer.

Epigenetic changes may be just as important, or indeed more critical, than hereditary mutations in a cell's transformation to cancer

The greatest conceptual breakthrough in the war on cancer was the acknowledgment by the 1980s that it is always a hereditary disease. Now and then the hereditary flaw is acquired. In some cases, it is the result of exposure to an exterior agent such as tobacco smoke or radioactivity. In some cases, it is plain bad luck; a miscopying of a piece of DNA during the typical prepare of cell division.

Metabolic recoding of epigenetics in cancer

Cancer-induced metabolic changes modify the epigenetic scene, particularly adjustments on histones and DNA, in this manner promoting harmful change, adjustment to lacking nutrition, and metastasis. The accumulation of certain metabolites in cancer can target epigenetic proteins to universally change the epigenetic landscape. Cancer-related metabolic changes lead to the locus-specific recoding of epigenetic marks.

The reversible nature of epigenetic variations has driven to the development of the promising field of epigenetic treatment, which is as of now making an advance with the later FDA endorsement of three epigenetic drugs for cancer treatment. In this survey, we examine the current understanding of changes within the epigenetic scene that occur in cancer compared with normal cells, the parts of these changes in cancer initiation and movement, counting the cancer stem cell model, and the potential utilizes of this information in planning more effective treatment procedures.

Unique Brain 'Fingerprint' Can Predict Drug Effectiveness

A unique "brain fingerprint" may offer assistance to distinguish the foremost useful therapeutic intervention for individual patients with neurologic clutter such as Alzheimer's disease,  possibly saving millions from experiencing ineffective treatment, modern research suggests. Investigators utilized computational brain modeling and artificial intelligence strategies to analyze positron emission tomography (PET) and MRI from over 300 patients with Alzheimer's Disease and healthy controls.

Thanks to technological advancement as that might change. From later discoveries, it is presently possible to think of personalized treatment for patients with certain neurological conditions. The concept capitalizes in reading the brain’s fingerprint. This tech can be utilized to better group patients with neurological illnesses so as to put them in line with the most successful therapeutic arrangements based on their particular needs.

The technique is called pTIF (personalized Therapeutic Intervention Fingerprint) and it rotates around anticipating the effectiveness of focusing on particular biological perspectives, such as brain amyloid/tau deposition, neuronal, functional dysregulation, and inflammation — with the sole expectation of managing how a patient’s disease evolves. This treatment option capitalizes on present-day innovations, artificial intelligence, and computational brain modeling.

The interesting portion is that usually the only study that has ever unmasked a direct connection between brain dynamics, molecular and cognitive alterations and predicted therapeutic reactions in patients. Meaning, specialists can presently utilize subtypes to plan drugs that do best with the specific patient, based on their phenotypic brain characteristics and their unique gene expression profile. Something the researchers expressed could be a major milestone in personalized medicine, and could immensely progress the effectiveness of treatment. Top on that this will cut the budget for clinical drug trials since researchers will be able to choose patients without guesswork.


Lithium: a key to the genetics of bipolar disorder

Lithium is a decades-old treatment for bipolar disorder, profoundly effective in those who react. It comes with a few side effects, and lithium has been superseded in huge part by newer mood stabilizers. But lithium’s effectiveness in the one-third of bipolar patients who react to the medicate compares favourably with the newer medications. Neglect of this reasonable medicine implies bipolar patients who could be helped never get a chance to encounter its benefit.

Until now, analysts have not caught on why these patients have not reacted to the common treatment, whereas others have reacted well to the drug. Now as the universal Consortium on Lithium Lithium is a decades-old treatment for bipolar disorder, profoundly effective in those who react. It comes with a few side effects, and lithium has been superseded in huge part by newer mood stabilizers. But lithium’s effectiveness in the one-third of bipolar patients who react to the medicate compares favourably with the newer medications. Neglect of this reasonable medicine implies bipolar patients who could be helped never get a chance to encounter its benefit.

Genetics, the bunch has considered the underlying hereditary qualities of more than 2500 patients treated with lithium for bipolar disorder. Researchers found that patients clinically analysed with bipolar disorder who showed a poor reaction to lithium treatment all shared something in common: a high number of genes already recognized for schizophrenia, This doesn't proof that the patient too had schizophrenia -- but in case a bipolar patient features a high 'gene load' of schizophrenia hazard genes, our research appears they are less likely to reply to mood stabilizers such as lithium. In addition, researchers identified new genes within the immune system that will play a vital biological part within the underlying pathways of lithium and its effect on treatment response.


Impact of epigenetics in the management of cardiovascular disease: a review

Epigenetics is the new study of all the heritable changes which have a tremendous potential to introduce new biomarkers in the Cardiovascular disease (CVD) field and also new avenues for innovative research therapies.

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading diseases and is responsible for one-third of all deaths worldwide and accounting for an important burden of healthcare expenditure.

Epigenetic mechanisms represent a stable cellular memory that allows the propagation of gene activities from one generation of cells to the next generation.

There are several pathological conditions which affects the heart including Cardiac hypertrophy, Coronary artery disease, hypertension etc. which leads to the failure of the heart.

Already, epigenetic modifications were reported to play an urgent part in process underlying CVD, counting atherosclerosis, irritation, and hypertension. To date, most of the restrictions for the complete understanding of the hereditary impact on cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are likely due to the inactive basic assessment of the DNA code.

In epigenetics, through the study of a few energetic pathways, alter moreover the genome’s functionality under exogenous impact, which may recognize novel mechanisms and targets within the control of gene regulation, with noteworthy acquisitions in CVD information of its hereditary risk and pathophysiology. In fact, epigenetic alterations such as histones alterations, DNA methylation, and little noncoding RNAs occur in response to natural changes. Pollution and diet will significantly alter these epigenetic alterations and trigger susceptibility to CVD

There are several potential benefits of using the epigenetic biomarkers such DNA methylation of specific genes or miRNAs. As compared to the classical biochemical biomarkers present ones can give valuable data about gene functions and phenotypes which would be helpful for CVD diagnosis, outcome, prognosis, treatment monitoring and stratification.
