Madhubabu kaaja Thank you for showing interest in these medical uptake. Scientists , researchers, and doctors are delving deep into understanding of atopy , inclding asthma, in the genetic and micromolecular level. As you have mentioned, it is very interesting to see if scientists can identify the genes associated with pancreatic cancer. Doing so would be very helpful in screening and reduce mortality of pancreati...

Here are the latest updates in the field of medicine. It has been recently identified that 136 different genetic mutations are highly associated with all forms of allergies; thus, it goes to show that a strong family history of atopy is very predictive of a person's risk of having either bronchial asthma, skin asthma, allergic rhinitis or any other form of atopy. These genetic mutations can be switched on or off and researchers are now focusing on developing new anti-allergy drugs that can p...
