Innovative “Viro-Immunotherapy” Designed to Kill Breast Cancer Cells

A leading scientist has devised a new treatment that employs viruses to kill breast cancer cells. The research could lead to a promising “viro-immunotherapy” for patients with triple-negative breast cancer, an aggressive type of the disease that currently has no targeted treatment options.   More...

New Device Designed to See Communication between Immune Cells

The immune system is a complicated network of many different cells working together to defend against invaders. Effectively combating an infection depends on the interactions between these cells. A new device offers a much more detailed image of that specific cellular communication. Using this device, which captures pairs of cells and collects data on each as they interact with each other, researchers have already learned more about how T cells become activated during infection.

Genome Editing Application Has Potential in Modifying Human Stem Cells

A unique genome editing tool known as CRISPR has been used by researchers for several years to fit, replace, disrupt, or add to sequences of an organism’s DNA. Now, scientists have shown that the system also precisely and effectively changes human stem cells, which could become a new advance in the use of stem cells for treatment and disease research.  More...

MRI Probe Combined with Magnetic Nanostructure and Antibody can Detect Alzheimer’s Disease Early

A noninvasive MRI application has been designed that can detect the Alzheimer’s disease in a living animal, well before typical Alzheimer’s symptoms appear. The researchers created an MRI probe that combines a magnetic nanostructure with an antibody that searches for the amyloid beta brain toxins responsible for onset of the disease. The accumulated toxins, because of the associated magnetic nanostructures, are revealed as dark areas in MRI scans of the brain.  More...

Protein Bioengineering Applications May Offer a Treatment for Huntington’s Disease, Improving Motor Function and Reducing Brain Shrinkage

Researchers have improved motor function and brain abnormalities in lab animals with a form of Huntington’s disease, a severe neurodegenerative disorder, by modifying the levels of a key signaling protein. This new findings may become the basis of a new treatment for individuals suffering from this lethal, progressive disease.  More...
