Veracyte Announces Launch of New Afirma Xpression Atlas at 2018 AACE Congress

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 21 maggio 2018

Veracyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCYT) today announced the launch of the new Afirma Xpression Atlas, an RNA sequencing-based test that provides extensive genomic information to aid in surgery and treatment decisions for patients with potentially cancerous thyroid nodules. The new test is being introduced at the AACE 27th Annual Scientific & Clinical Congress where robust test performance data will be shared in a Product Theater event and poster presentation by Veracyte and external researchers. The AACE meeting is being held May 16-20 in Boston.
The Afirma Xpression Atlas detects 761 DNA variants and 130 RNA fusion pairs in over 500 genes that have been linked to thyroid cancer. In some cases, these gene alterations have demonstrated association with more aggressive thyroid cancers or with higher-stage disease.
“For patients who are already going to surgery for suspected thyroid cancer, the Afirma Xpression Atlas provides additional genomic information that physicians and patients may use in decisions about the surgical approach,” said Peter M. Sadow, M.D., Ph.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. “Additionally, as more is understood about gene alterations and their impact on thyroid cancer development, prognosis and tumor pathway dependence, this RNA sequencing information may help to further guide patient care.” Dr. Sadow will present performance data for the Xpression Atlas test during a poster session at the AACE meeting on Saturday, May 19. The gene variants and fusion partners in the Afirma Xpression Atlas were derived from the thyroid literature and from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). The RNA-sequencing based panel is offered as an extension to Veracyte’s market-leading Afirma Genomic Sequencing Classifier (GSC), which is widely used to identify benign nodules among those deemed indeterminate by cytopathology so that patients can avoid unnecessary surgery.“In tandem with our Afirma GSC, the Afirma Xpression Atlas provides physicians with the most comprehensive and evidence-based genomic information available to inform diagnosis, stratify thyroid cancer risk and, for those who are diagnosed with cancer, aid in therapeutic selection,” said Bonnie Anderson, Veracyte’s chairman and chief executive office.

Basic cardiovascular science congress set to stimulate public discussion on genome editing

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 27 marzo 2018

Vienna, Austria 20 to 22 April. The European Society of Cardiology’s (ESC) basic science congress is set to stimulate public discussion on the use of genome editing and other cutting edge technologies to prevent cardiovascular disease.Frontiers in CardioVascular Biology (FCVB) 2018 is organised by the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science of the ESC in collaboration with 12 European cardiovascular science societies. It will be held from 20 to 22 April at the Austria Centre Vienna. The full scientific programme is available here.Germline genome editing, which is performed in either the oocyte or sperm, could be used to prevent disease – for example hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is caused by a mutation in the MYBPC3 gene. It could also be used to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by, for example, introducing a loss-of-function in the PCSK9 gene, thereby interfering with cholesterol levels. Another application could be to introduce advantageous or otherwise desirable traits such as athletic ability.Tissue engineering will also be explored at the congress. The technique could be used in patients with end-stage heart failure by growing a patch of healthy cells outside the body and then implanting it into the damaged area of the heart to support its pump function.Experts will present the latest data linking gut bacteria and their metabolites with health and disease. Certain combinations have been associated with atherosclerosis, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and heart failure.
Leaders in the field of cell therapy, in which stem cells or progenitor cells are injected into the patient to repair a damaged heart, will explore the pros and cons of this technique and discuss why meta-analyses of randomised trials assessing cell therapy to promote cardiac repair in myocardial infarction have reported conflicting results.Professor Wojta said: “Another issue is that the results of cell therapy have been promising in animal models but modest in humans. One explanation is that we have used young, healthy animals with artificially induced myocardial infarction whereas patients are older, unhealthy, and have developed coronary heart disease over years or decades until experiencing a myocardial infarction.”He concluded: “Cell therapy is an area of research in which we moved very quickly from the bench to the bedside. We need to go back to the bench and come up with more relevant animal models that could give us better solutions for use in humans.”

New ESC guidelines on syncope and latest science to be released at EHRA 2018 congress

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 febbraio 2018

Barcelona, Spain 18 to 20 March 2018. New European Society of Cardiology Clinical Practice Guidelines on syncope will be presented and published online for the first time during EHRA 2018, which will be held 18 to 20 March in Barcelona, Spain.Formerly the EHRA Europace congress held annually in June, EHRA 2018 marks the beginning of a new schedule, in which the congress will be held in March each year. It is the annual congress of the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). EHRA’s aim is to improve quality of life by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reducing sudden cardiac death. The yearly congress is an important activity towards meeting this aim; it covers the full spectrum of arrhythmias management, from atrial fibrillation to stroke, and from simple to complex arrhythmias. It will be held from 18 to 20 March in Barcelona, Spain, at the Fira Gran Via. The full scientific programme is available here.A record number of late-breaking science abstracts were submitted for the congress this year.2 Highlights to be presented include the AXAFA-AFNET trial on the impact of continuous apixaban during catheter ablation; the MORE-CRT MPP trial on the benefits of cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) with multipoint pacing; two studies on the outcome of surgical versus catheter ablation in atrial fibrillation; and new data from the BRUISE CONTROL-1 and 2 trials on continued versus interrupted non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) during device implantation.Innovative technologies will be presented in a special session that will focus on the accuracy of smartphone applications for detecting atrial fibrillation; the effectiveness of a novel endovascular balloon for treating vein tears during transvenous lead extraction; and the benefit of ultra-low temperatures for cryoablation of atrial fibrillation.Registries provide real life data and late-breaking findings will be presented in a dedicated session. Two-year follow-up results with the WATCHMAN left atrial appendage closure device will reveal the impact on stroke and bleeding; two-year outcomes will also be presented from the GLORIA-AF registry on dabigatran use in almost 5,000 patients with atrial fibrillation; and the ALTITUDE registry of more than 145,000 patients will give insights into how device programming can reduce unnecessary implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) shocks.
EHRA will launch a scientific document on arrhythmias and cognitive function, and a practical guide on the use of NOACs in atrial fibrillation.An entire session is devoted to the novel use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to guide ablation of atrial fibrillation. International experts will present cutting edge data, giving a complete picture on whether real-time MRI guidance can improve ablation outcomes.Controversial issues will be debated by world opinion leaders on issues such as whether a subcutaneous ICD should be preferred over a transvenous ICD to prevent sudden death, and whether anticoagulation can be stopped after successful catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation.
Summits will be held on e-health, cardiac mapping, lead and device management, and ventricular tachycardia. Members of the press can watch state-of-the-art techniques being performed in live sessions streamed from Barcelona and Leipzig on atrial fibrillation ablation, pacing, lead extraction, ventricular tachycardia, and MRI-guided procedures.The Einthoven Lecture will be given by Professor Josep Brugada of the University of Barcelona. Professor Jonathan M. Kalman of the University of Melbourne will deliver the Intercontinental Lecture. Professor Helmut Puererfellner, scientific programme vice-chairperson, said: “This is the congress on cardiac arrhythmias, with updates on the entire armamentarium. Save the date now and be among the first to hear the latest scientific findings in this fast-moving field.”

Innovations to prevent heart disease take centre stage at EuroPrevent congress

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 8 marzo 2017

Sophia AntipolisSophia Antipolis. Innovations to prevent heart disease will take centre stage at EuroPrevent 2017 in Malaga, Spain.EuroPrevent is the annual congress of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). EuroPrevent 2017 takes place 6 to 8 April at the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos de Malaga (FYCMA). This year’s theme is “innovations in preventive cardiology”. The congress will explore novel ideas and technologies that could have an impact on society and what that impact could mean. “It’s the right time to talk about innovation in preventive cardiology because we are moving beyond classical treatments and approaches on a number of fronts,” said Professor Jean-Paul Schmid, programme committee chair.
Could the Nordic diet be the new Mediterranean diet? Experts will discuss how it provides cardiovascular protection that is also eco-friendly. Sessions on nutrition will also explore diet and the microbiome as the next frontier in cardiovascular prevention, examine whether patients with metabolic syndrome should eat low carbohydrate or low cholesterol diets, and ask “Do superfoods exist and do we need them?”.“Nutrition used to be our main weapon to lower cholesterol but it took a back seat when statins came on the scene,” said Professor Schmid. “EuroPrevent will look at new therapeutic uses of food and nutrients and also the potential dangers of genetically modified food.”
A breakthrough in the management of high cholesterol could see some patients using monoclonal antibodies called PCSK9-inhibitors. Journalists will find out which patients should add these to their statin regime and how effective the newer drugs are. Novel oral antidiabetic drugs are another important discovery that will be presented.Professor Schmid said: “Monoclonal antibodies are used in oncology and rheumatology, and now intensive lipid lowering with this new class of drugs is a hot topic. This potent medication may help patients unable to reach cholesterol targets on statins alone and better protect patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia who have genetically high cholesterol. Leaders in the field will talk about the safety of very low lipid levels.”
A session on social inequalities will examine cardiovascular disease incidence and survival in migrants, and explain the association between cardiovascular risk factors and borough socioeconomic level. “Cardiovascular disease in migrants is an increasingly important topic and we need strategies for prevention,” said Professor Schmid. “Members of the press will hear about the scale of the problem, how these populations are unique, and how we might screen and then help them.”
The latest science on the health effects of e-cigarettes and waterpipe will be presented, along with the impact of TV and movies on tobacco use and cessation in the young. “After the harms of secondhand smoke were confirmed and actions taken to prevent it we thought we knew everything about tobacco,” said Professor Schmid. “But e-cigarettes have reactivated the discussion about smoking, smoking cessation, and smoking behaviour. We will delve into the latest facts about the hazards of e-cigarettes and waterpipe.”
Experts will present the most up-to-date evidence on physical activity monitoring in patients with cardiovascular disease and investigate whether mobile apps help prevent cardiovascular disease in people of all ages. Journalists will hear lively, balanced debates on whether too much exercise can be detrimental to cardiovascular health, and whether exercise restriction is necessary for athletes with cardiac disease.Dr Michael Joner, previous winner of an ESC Grant for Medical Research Innovation will give the EuroPrevent 2017 Keynote Lecture. The Spanish Society of Cardiology will hold cardiopulmonary resuscitation workshops for the general public at Malaga Town Hall on all three days of the congress.Professor Schmid said: “As the leading international congress in preventive cardiology, EuroPrevent covers epidemiology and population science, cardiac rehabilitation and exercise, and sports cardiology. We are expecting more than 1000 cardiologists, allied health professionals, general practitioners, researchers and policy makers to attend. Journalists should register now for this top notch event.”

Pope Francis at ESC Congress 2016

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 1 settembre 2016

pope francisRome. His Holiness Pope Francis honoured the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) with an historic visit to ESC Congress 2016, the world’s largest scientific summit on cardiovascular medicine. “You look after the heart,” His Holiness told the cardiologists. “How much symbolism is enshrined in this word! How many hopes are contained in this human organ! In your hands you hold the beating core of the human body, and as such your responsibility is very great!”Pope Francis added: “The Magisterium of the Church has always affirmed the importance of scientific research for human life and health. The Church not only accompanies you along this demanding path, but also promotes your cause and wishes to support you.”ESC President, Professor Fausto Pinto, in introducing the Pontiff, said: “The European Society of Cardiology, like the Vatican, is committed to alleviating suffering and promoting healthy lifestyles. Both share a common purpose of delivering care to those in need and helping people live more productive lives.” The European Society of Cardiology brings together healthcare professionals from more than 150 countries to push the boundaries of cardiovascular medicine. ESC Congress, held annually at the end of August, presents more than 6,000 scientific abstracts, identifying the latest discoveries and breakthroughs in the field of cardiology. This year’s congress attracted a record 33,000 cardiology professionals.“There is so much more that could be done, that must be done,” Professor Pinto said to Pope Francis. “In Europe alone, 1.4 million people under the age of 75 die prematurely each year from heart attacks and strokes because, in many cases, they are not getting the timely and effective healthcare they need. “Governments, public health systems, clinics, hospitals, universities, we must all recognise the urgency of this public health crisis. And a crisis is exactly what it is, and how it should be seen.”

80th anniversary of the establishment of the World Jewish Congress

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 agosto 2016

NEW YORK – As the World Jewish Congress prepared to mark its 80th anniversary, President Ronald S. Lauder declared that vigilance and bold steps were as necessary today as they were in 1936 to defend Jews and Jewish community life, adding that the very existence of the WJC, the international Jewish umbrella organization, keep the situation for Jews around the world from deteriorating to the level of pre-Holocaust Germany. Ronald S. Lauder said:“In 1936, our founding fathers and mothers gathered in Switzerland to unite against the growing threat of Nazi Germany and to bring the Jewish plight to the world’s attention. Today, the world’s attitude toward Jews may still be hostile, but two things have certainly changed. Firstly, we have changed. The era of the quiet Jew, the timid Jew, the Ghetto Jew, is long over. Those leaders who set up the WJC 80 years ago buried that Jew – and he’s not coming back.“Secondly, there is the State of Israel, the only Jewish state in the world. The World Jewish Congress works to defend Israel and its people in the international arena, and we hope to contribute to achieving peace and stability in the Middle East “The founding of the World Jewish Congress put Jewish interests on the map of international diplomacy for the first time. I am sure that the founding fathers and mothers of the WJC, who could not prevent the Holocaust but who did much to help Jews during and after World War II, would have been proud of what the WJC and what Israel have achieved in recent decades.“Much needs to be done to fight anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry, but as we look back over the last 80 years, it is clear that the world would be an even more dangerous place for Jews were in not for the establishment of the WJC as the representative voice and diplomatic arm of world Jewry.”
8-15 August 1936: Founding assembly of the World Jewish Congress in Geneva The World Jewish Congress was formally established in Geneva, Switzerland, by a plenary assembly of 230 elected representatives from Jewish communities in 32 countries to serve as an umbrella body tasked to defend Jewish rights vis-à-vis governments and international bodies and to mobilize for the establishment of a Jewish home in what was then the Mandate of Palestine.Today, the WJC has affiliated member organizations in over 100 countries and territories and remains the only truly global Jewish umbrella organization.
8 August 1942: Riegner Telegram alerts world to Holocaust During World War II, the WJC set up a relief body to assist persecuted Jews in Europe and it alerted the world to the Holocaust. On 8 August 1942, the WJC’s Geneva representative Gerhart Riegner sent the famous telegram in which he informed the United States for the first time about the Nazis’ ‘Final Solution of the Jewish Question’, the plan to exterminate all Jews in the German-occupied territories. Riegner had received his information from the German industrialist Eduard Schulte.Throughout the war, the WJC lobbied the Allied governments to grant entry visas to Jewish refugees. Despite the US State Department’s opposition, the WJC obtained permission from the US Treasury Department, headed by Henry Morgenthau, to transmit funds to Europe for the rescue and assistance of persecuted Jews. According to a report by Riegner, these funds helped to bring 1,350 Jewish children from the occupied countries to Switzerland and 70 to Spain.
First Plenary AssemblyOn 9 August 1944, the head of the WJC’s Rescue Department, Arieh Leon Kubowitzki, sent a letter to the US Undersecretary of War John McCloy, relaying a message from Ernest Frischer of the Czechoslovak State Council urging the destruction of gas chambers and crematoria in Auschwitz-Birkenau and the bombing of railway communications in this area.
On 14 August 1944, McCloy replied to Kubowitzki by rejecting the idea, saying that “such an operation could be executed only by the diversion of considerable air support essential to the success of our forces now engaged in decisive operations elsewhere and would in any case be of such doubtful efficacy that it would not warrant the use of our resources.”In April 1945, the WJC managed to obtain the liberation of 4,500 inmates from the women’s concentration camp Ravensbrück through direct negotiations with top Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler.
In the aftermath of World War II, the WJC undertook efforts to rebuild Jewish communities in Europe, provided assistance to displaced persons and Shoah survivors, pushed for the indemnification of victims by Germany, and advocated for the punishment of Nazi leaders who committed crimes against humanity.In 1951, WJC President Nahum Goldmann established the Conference of Jewish Material Claims Against Germany to handle Jewish reparation claims.The World Jewish Congress also successfully lobbied the United Nations and governments to support the establishment of the State of Israel. After 1948, the WJC focused its attention on the plight of Jewish refugees in Arab countries and also drew international attention to the plight of Jews in the Soviet Union, who were ultimately granted permission to move to Israel or to remain in their communities.During the 1980s, the World Jewish Congress exposed the Nazi past of former UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim, who was elected president of Austria in 1986.During the 1990s, the WJC successfully lobbied for the restitution of assets of Holocaust victims held in so-called ‘dormant’ bank accounts in Switzerland and elsewhere, and it ensured that they were returned to their rightful owners, or that adequate compensation was paid. Commissions were set up in 17 nations to investigate Holocaust-era assets, including looted art, and the funds recovered have been used to support a multitude of programs worldwide.The WJC also fought for justice for forced laborers – both Jewish and non-Jewish – whose agonizing hardship had gone uncompensated for decades, resulting in the setting up of a US$ 5 billion fund by Germany in 2001.
The World Jewish Congress has also been at the forefront of fostering a better understanding with other religions, notably with the Catholic Church, and the organization facilitated the establishment of diplomatic relations between Israel and the Holy See in 1993. (photo: First Plenary Assembly)
