Gene Therapy Reactivates Cell Death Pathways in Cervical Cancer Cells

A team of molecular virologists has presented evidence demonstrating the possibility of developing anticancer therapies based on viral vectors that transfect carcinoma cells with RNA-protein complexes capable of reactivating genes in the cancer cells that cause cell cycle arrest and eventual cell death.  More...

Deletion of the FOXO1 Gene Transforms Intestinal Cells into Insulin Producers

After having demonstrated that gut endocrine progenitor cells of mice could be differentiated into glucose-responsive, insulin-producing cells by elimination of the transcription factor FOXO1, diabetes researchers have extended these findings by obtaining similar results with human gut endocrine progenitor and serotonin-producing cells.  More...

Ultrasound and Self-Healing Hydrogels Noninvasively Deliver Targeted Chemotherapy

Modern drug-delivery systems used to administer chemotherapy to cancer patients typically release a constant dose of the drug over time. But a new study challenges this gradual approach and offers a unique way to locally deliver the drugs “on demand.”   More...
