And is on its way to the Governors desk.


The group is urging Governor Quinn to enact the legislation now. Senate Bill 326 exceeded the Senate today by a vote of 46-8, unanimously on Thursday 118-0 after passing the home. The legislation was sponsored in the Senate by Senators Heather Steans and Jacqueline Collins and in the House by Representatives Barbara Flynn-Currie , and Sara Feigenholtz . ‘This legislation provides sweeping reforms that will radically enhance the quality of caution and protection for nursing home occupants in Illinois,’ said AARP Senior Manager for Advocacy, Nancy Nelson.No buccal sample was available for the sole individual with a mutation in FLNB , which means this mutation could not be assumed to be somatic. These studies hence confirmed somatic mutations in five genes regarded as mutated in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes and identified recurrent mutations in GNAS that have not really been previously reported in hematologic cancers. We performed genomewide evaluation of copy-number changes in a subgroup of 75 samples, using Affymetrix 6.0 SNP arrays. In addition to the known cytogenetic abnormalities, we recognized an individual case with a focal deletion encompassing ETV6, a gene that is recurrently involved in translocations in acute leukemia but is not known to be mutated in myelodysplastic syndromes .
