Major genetic study identifies 12 new genetic variants for ovarian cancer
Major genetic study identifies 12 new genetic variants for ovarian cancer
A genetic trawl through the DNA of almost 100,000 people, including 17,000 patients with the most common type of ovarian cancer, has identified 12 new genetic variants that increase risk of developing the disease and confirmed the association of 18 of the previously published variants. Published today , the findings are the result of work by the OncoArray Consortium, a huge endeavour led by scientists in the UK, the USA and Australia.

No 'weekend admission effect' for the elderly sustaining broken hips in the NHS
No ’weekend admission effect’ for the elderly sustaining broken hips in the NHS
New research has found NHS patients admitted to hospital at the weekend with a hip fracture are at no greater risk of death compared to weekdays. In fact, the risk of death during the hospital stay was lower at the weekend than in the week. Only a delay to surgery; undergoing surgery on a Sunday, when provision for operations in many hospitals is less, being discharged from hospital on a Sunday; or out of hours were associated with an increased risk of death at 30 days.

New ’gene silencer’ drug injections reduce cholesterol by 50% in early research
The first in a new class of gene-silencing drugs, known as inclisiran, has halved cholesterol levels in patients at risk of cardiovascular disease. The findings come from the largest trial yet to test the safety and effectiveness of this kind of therapy. The technique, known as RNA interference (RNAi) therapy, essentially ‘switches off' one of the genes responsible for elevated cholesterol.

New trial for blindness rewrites the genetic code
Researchers have started a new gene therapy clinical trial to treat X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP), the most common cause of blindness in young people. Retinitis pigmentosa is currently untreatable and leads to a slow and irreversible loss of vision. The trial is being run by Nightstarx Ltd (Nightstar), a biopharmaceutical spinout company of Oxford developing gene therapies for inherited retinal diseases, and researchers from the University of Oxford.

Atomic map of malaria drug gives it new life
Researchers have mapped how the malaria drug mefloquine works, providing a route to make effective alternatives and combat rising drug resistance. Malaria is caused by a family of parasites carried by certain mosquito species, leading to an estimated half a million deaths each year. With growing resistance to frontline antimalarial drugs, it makes sense to improve secondary drugs that work imperfectly, rather than always reinvent the wheel.

Top up on carbs before and during run to reach finish line quickly
People heading out on long weekend runs, including this Sunday's  Bath Half Marathon , should take on board carbohydrates both before and during a race if they are to reach the finish line as quickly as possible and avoid hitting the wall, according to researchers at the University. A  new review , recently published in the  American Journal of Physiology Endocrinology and Metabolism from researchers in the University's  Department for Health, focuses on the importance of the liver's glycogen stores in maintaining blood sugar levels during exercise.
