How genetic and genomic analysis are leading to new therapies in Kawasaki disease Jane Burns UCSD School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics Abstract: Our first genetic studies of Kawasaki disease (KD) began in 1998 when we found a skewed distribution of two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the promoter region of TNF? that were potentially implicated in increased gene expression. These early observations inspired a small clinical trial of pentoxifylline, a modulator of TNF?...

Host: Haixu Tang School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University, Bloomington ABSTRACT While the debate is still on-going over the priority between the research uses of human genomic data versus the privacy of human subjects, privacy-preserving techniques are available for a balanced consideration of both of them. I will showcase a few examples, where customized privacy-preserving approaches have been adopted, implicitly or explicitly, for sharing different kinds of human...

DIETARY MAGNESIUM INTAKE IS INVERSELY ASSOCIATED WITH MORTALITY IN ADULTS AT HIGH CARDIOVASCULAR RISK

submitted by: Marta Guasch
The relation between dietary magnesium intake and cardiovascular disease or mortality has been evaluated in several prospective studies, but few of them have assessed the risk of all-cause mortality, which has never been evaluated in Mediterranean adults at high cardiovascular risk. The aim of this study was to assess the association between magnesium intake and cardiovascular disease and mortality risk, in a Mediterranean population at high cardiovascular risk with high average magnesium...

Ensuring Privacy and Security for Healthcare Data Repositories Jaideep Vaidya Rutgers University Abstract: Big data has the potential to transform the healthcare system. However, to truly unlock this potential, we must be able to collect, analyze, and share data in healthcare repositories in a safe fashion. In this talk, we will examine some of the privacy and security challenges in maintaining large data repositories. I will present attacks against healthcare repositories from the...
