European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week 2017: tackling late diagnosis

Read the WHO top story on the European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week. 

Early detection is key in the prevention and treatment of HIV and hepatitis B and C. In most countries in the Region, HIV testing services for those at risk are inadequate, and access to HIV and viral hepatitis prevention, treatment and care services is limited. WHO therefore recommends that countries prioritize, fund and support an acceptable level of services

Open Data: Fantastic idea or bureaucratic nightmare?

In this article on gains and challenges in "open data" on Professor Jens Lundgren talks about the use of open data in PERSIMUNE Datawarehouse.

Open access to data - it's not that simple

To elucidate the advantages and challenges of open data in science, the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF) conducted a survey among its researchers on open access to data. The report include a section on the PERSIMUNE Datawarehouse. 
The results are presented here.

New PERSIMUNE Publication

PERSIMUNE in publication in Nature genetics " Bayesian analysis of genetic association across
tree-structured routine healthcare data in the UK Biobank
." .
Professor Lars Fugger contributed
to an analysis comparing classified phenotypes against findings from analysis of host genomics and report an improvement of more than 20% increase in power to detect genetic effects over other approaches and identifies new associations between classical human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles and common immune-mediated diseases (IMDs). The study emphasises that a more careful system biological characterisation (in this instance host genome bioinformatics analysis) contributes to a better and biologically-determined classification of causes of disease.
