Do you use transcriptional signatures?

Do you assume they represent the same biology in pre-clinical & clinical samples?

What if I told you some of the most widely-used signatures in cancer research are being completely misinterpreted.… read on👇👇🧵
For a long time we have been using clinical samples to identify epithelial biology and signalling in specific cells of interest, but in the end we knew we needed to find a better way to account for the histological heterogeneity of diagnostic tissue samples
Biomarker and signature development is increasingly performed in pre-clinical models (in vitro, in vivo or ex vivo) that are exquisitely suited for precise characterisation of discrete mechanistic signalling enabling almost absolute control over the experimental conditions

Here is our Tweetorial from our Nature Medicine paper published today. (1/8)…
DNA from patients with Barrett’s oesophagus can show who is most likely at risk to develop oesophageal cancer up to *8 years* before cancer is diagnosed, improving detection and decreasing overdiagnosis. (2/8)
Using a low resolution whole genome sequencing method, we looked for signals of copy number changes in the DNA. This is common in tumours and important in oesophageal cancer. Samples from patients with early cancer showed more changes than samples from patients who had not. (3/8)

When I heard of Chadwick Boseman's passing, it hit me hard. My father recently passed due to stage four cancer. Too many people have lost loved ones to this terrible disease, and Black people are disproportionately hurt due to structural inequalities in healthcare & beyond.

My fight for justice for Black lives includes addressing racial health disparities.

In Georgia, we can start by expanding Medicaid, which has been shown to reduce disparities in cancer detection and treatment and improve outcomes for everyone. #gapol #BlackLivesMatter (3/5) A Black hand stitches a piece of fabric.  Text: Medicaid exp

It was really sad to wake up to the news of the passing away of one of my favorite Hollywood movie icon "CHADWICK BOSEMAN" popularly known as "BLACK PANTHER".

He was reported to have died after 4 years of battling with Colon Cancer.

Cancer can start any place in the body. Cancer that starts in the colon or rectum is called colorectal cancer. It starts when cells in the colon or rectum grow out of control. This makes it hard for the body to work the way it should. @drpenking Image
