A human disease network is a network of human disorders and diseases with reference to their genetic origins or other features. More specifically, it is the map of human disease associations referring mostly to disease genes. For example, in a human disease network, two diseases are linked if they share at least one associated gene. A typical human disease network usually derives from bipartite networks which consist of both diseases and genes information. Additionally, some human disease networks use other features such as symptoms and proteins to associate diseases. In 2007, Goh et al. constructed a disease-gene bipartite graph using information from OMIM database and termed human disease network. In 2009, Barrenas et al. derived complex disease-gene network using GWAs (Genome Wide Association studies). In the same year, Hidalgo et al. published a novel way of building human phenotypic disease networks in which diseases were connected according to their calculated distance. In 2011, Cusick et ...
Human genome sequencing and new biological data generation techniques have provided an opportunity to uncover mechanisms in human disease. Using gene-disease data, recent research has increasingly shown that many seemingly dissimilar diseases have similar/common molecular mechanisms. Understanding similarity between diseases aids in early disease diagnosis and development of new drugs. The growing collection of gene-function and gene-disease data has instituted a need for formal knowledge representation in order to extract information. Ontologies have been successfully applied to represent such knowledge, and data mining techniques have been applied on them to extract information. Informatics methods can be used with ontologies to find similarity between diseases which can yield insight into how they are caused. This can lead to therapies which can actually cure diseases rather than merely treating symptoms. Estimating disease similarity solely on the basis of shared genes can be misleading as ...

When exploring whether disease genes encode hubs, we, and authors of other earlier studies (27-29), ignored the fact that some human genes are essential in early development and functional changes in these contribute to the high rate of first-trimester spontaneous abortions, which might be as much as 20% of recognized pregnancies. One strategy to explore the impact of this in utero essential segment of human disease is to consider human orthologs of mouse genes that result in embryonic or postnatal lethality when disrupted by homologous recombination (Mouse Genome Informatics; www.informatics.jax.org). All together, we find 1,267 such mouse lethal orthologs of human genes, of which 398 are associated with human diseases, representing 22% of all known human disease genes. This allows us to distinguish between two classes of human genes: 1,267 "essential genes" and 1,379 "nonessential disease genes," the latter obtained by removing from the full list of 1,777 OMIM disease genes the 398 that are ...

Human gene mutations resulting in specific disease phenotypes were first reported in the scientific literature over 50 years ago [1, 2]. Since then, protein and nucleotide sequence changes associated with human disease have accumulated at a rapid rate. A large body of literature has appeared on human disease-associated mutations, normal sequence variation, and alterations that acquire pathological significance when combined with other deleterious alleles or second-site mutations. With this information compiled into organized databases [3, 4], it is now possible to conduct large-scale, comprehensive analyses of human disease genes. Such studies acquire additional discriminatory power with the availability of multiple genome sequences from model organisms, as comparative studies can provide novel evolutionary insights into the selective relevance of genetic changes. In the present study, we have used a collection of nearly 1,200 human disease gene sequences to perform a large-scale analysis of ...
Despite considerable progress in understanding the molecular origins of hereditary human diseases, the molecular basis of several thousand genetic diseases still remains unknown. High-throughput phenotype studies are underway to systematically assess the phenotype outcome of targeted mutations in model organisms. Thus, comparing the similarity between experimentally identified phenotypes and the phenotypes associated with human diseases can be used to suggest causal genes underlying a disease. In this manuscript, we present a method for disease gene prioritization based on comparing phenotypes of mouse models with those of human diseases. For this purpose, either human disease phenotypes are

GWAS and more recently whole-exome/genome sequencing have generated a massive expansion in the number of candidate disease genes. Animal models will have an essential role in validating candidate genes and understanding their role in pathobiology. Advances in targeted genome engineering with TALENs and CRISPRs now makes it feasible for individual laboratories to generate heritable and precise sequence modifications of their gene of interest in any organism. Zebrafish are an attractive model system because they share the vast majority of human disease genes. Genome editing tools such as CRISPR-Cas9 and TALENs permit heritable and precise sequence modification of the genome. In this session I will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the new genome editing tools and compare these methods to existing gene knock-down approaches. I will provide a brief overview of how we are applying these exciting genome editing tools to generate more informative models of human disease.. ...

Experiments have been run on monkeys with similar diseases and drugs. Introduction of ARV drugs drastically dropped HIV levels followed by a sharp rise when the GS-9620 drug was introduced right after. This rise is exactly what researchers were looking for, as it shows that reservoir cells are activating and are now visible to the immune system. After this drug therapy, the monkeys showed drops in HIV levels around the body, although scientists still dont know for sure how these reservoir cells are being eliminated. This research are being be expanded upon (since small clinical trials on HIV-infected people are starting), sending us a lot closer to finally finding a reliable cure for AIDS ...

But using preventable to describe diseases like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc. is sort of misleading. The biggest risk factor for all of them, like, absolutely far and away the biggest risk factor, is age. Diet, exercise, regular checkups, all these things may delay the onset of various diseases, but it wont stop you from getting them eventually. Look at the numbers. About 2.4 million people died in 2009, and 1.6 million of them died of heart disease or cancer. But 1.8 million of the total were over age 65. Thats a whole lotta old people. And guess what? The death rate is still 1.0. So while some people may not get heart disease or cancer, or whatever, there isnt any single thing that we can point to and say Do this and you wont get that. So describing them as preventable is a bit of a stretch ...
