Imaging technique reveals previously unseen nanostructures in brain tissue
Swellable hydrogels have enabled researchers to “decrowd” biomolecular structures in cells and tissues, revealing previously hidden nanostructures and providing imaging of the structure of Alzheimer’s-linked amyloid beta plaques in greater detail than has been possible before.
Oncolytic virotherapy, immunotherapy combo shows promise for treatment-resistant cancers
A combination of oncolytic virotherapy, a technique using cancer-fighting viruses, acting in concert with immunotherapy shows promise for treatment-resistant cancers, according to new research.
CRISPR reveals way to enhance the function, persistence of CAR T-cell therapies
The use of CRISPR knockout screens have uncovered a new regulator of immunity that could enhance the function and persistence of anti-cancer T-cell therapies, according to a study published on August 24 in the journal
Biomolecular condensates could transform drug discovery, says Dewpoint Therapeutics
Boston-based biotech company Dewpoint Therapeutics contends there are untapped opportunities for targeting biomolecular condensates to develop therapeutic agents for a wide array of diseases, potentially transforming the drug discovery process.
Antiviral-antibody combination improves influenza outcomes in mice
Researchers at McMaster University found in a mouse study that combining a class of well-known antiviral drugs and neutralizing antibodies was more effective than either approach alone, which they contend could be used to treat seasonal influenza and help prevent the next flu pandemic.
Blood-brain barrier cells regulate neurons in fruit flies, suggesting role in neurodegeneration
Cells in the blood-brain barrier regulate nerve ensheathment and neurotransmitter release in fruit flies, suggesting they may play a role in neurological conditions in humans.
Synthesis breakthrough opens door to development of natural product as cancer therapy
Princeton University scientists have halved the number of steps needed to synthesize pleurotin, setting the stage for work to realize the anticancer and antibiotic potential of the molecule.
Repurposed drug shows promise in animal studies as potential therapy for ALS
A drug used to treat enlarged prostates and high blood pressure could help to slow the progression of motor neuron disease, which is also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disorder.
New molecular editing strategy empowers chemists to create novel drug candidates
A new unified late-stage “molecular editing” strategy to directly modify bicyclic aza-arenes could enable chemists to synthesize a more diverse range of drug candidates.
CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing can give rise to cell toxicity, genomic instability: study
Gene editing using CRISPR-Cas9 can lead to cell toxicity and genome instability depending on the targeted spot of the human genome, according to a new study by researchers at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona.
