People who carry a "G" instead of an "A" at a specific spot in their genetic code have a sixfold higher risk of developing certain types of brain tumors.
Pathologist at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and senior author Robert Jenkins, M.D., Ph.D., says, “Based on our findings, we are already starting to think about clinical tests that can tell patients with abnormal brain scans what kind of tumor they have, just by testing their blood.” The Mayo Clinic and University of California, San Francisco study is online in the journal Nature Genetics.
Animation of the genome variant, lab b-roll and interview sound bites with Dr. Jenkins are available in the downloads above.
