Baby Fitz was born without an immune system. His treatment offers hope for curing rare diseases.

USA Today

Babies with Fitz’s condition, commonly known as “bubble boy disease,” rarely survive to toddlerhood. He became one of the first babies anywhere to get a specific diagnosis within days of birth and an experimental therapy several months later that appears to have worked.

Artificial Intelligence Aiding Human Interpretation Of Sequenced Genomes

Diagnostics World

A “quiet revolution” has been underway over the past year, exponentially growing the number of genetic variants discoverable by genome sequencing, according to Stephen Kingsmore, M.D., president and CEO of Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine in San Diego. Notably, it is now possible to identify an enormous number of structural variants—large genomic alterations that […]
