There is an urgent need to develop a vaccine to prevent gonorrhea infection due to rapidly increasing incidence and growing antibiotic resistance. BUSM researchers (in collaboration with University of Toronto researchers) have been investigating the use of animal models of gonorrhea, to study how the infection evolves and for potential use to determine the efficacy […]Continue Reading ...
Screen shot of Jackson Laboratory-Alzheimer’s Association slide: Together we can end Alzheimer’s disease. Credit: The Jackson Laboratory The MODEL-AD Center, an ambitious project to develop and distribute precise mouse models of late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (AD), has released eight new models carrying genetic mutations found in patients. In past decades, most AD researchers had to rely […]Continue Reading ...
The excitement of the Football World Cup is now over and we are well into the holiday season. This might be the silly season for the newspaper industry, but we get no such break in the white heat of Drug Discovery as covered by Drug Discovery Today. This month’s offering covers a very diverse field […]Continue Reading ...
June 25, 2018 Pancreatic cancer is lethal in about 95% of cases mostly due to failure of first-line therapy gemcitabine. AntiCancer Inc.’s oral methioninase (AC 00619), which is in late pre-clinical development as an anti-cancer as well as an anti-aging drug, has now been shown to overcome gemcitabine resistance in mouse models of human pancreatic […]Continue Reading ...
May 30, 2018 Computer-designed, 3D-printed models are emerging as a useful new tool for planning and carrying out cosmetic plastic surgery of the nose, reports a paper in the June issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Customized, life-sized, 3D-printed, models can provide a […]Continue Reading ...
March 2, 2018 The Allen Institute for Brain Science has produced the first comprehensive, publicly available database of predictive neuron models, along with their corresponding data. The generalized leaky integrate-and-fire (GLIF) and biophysically detailed models are described in two articles published in the journal Nature Communications. “The publication of these mathematical-physical models of the individual […]Continue Reading ...
August 13, 2018 The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have awarded $6.5 million to a consortium that includes the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, the University of Washington, the University of Connecticut, and the University of Auckland, New Zealand, to establish the Center for […]Continue Reading ...
Repositive initially created its unique PDX model sharing platform in 2017 and successfully extended the scope of the platform to become the broader Cancer Models Platform in 2018. Repositive will be demonstrating the platform’s new functionalities at the Tumor Models Conference in Boston, MA, 16 – 18 July 2018. Chris Taylor, Product Manager at Repositive, […]Continue Reading ...
June 11, 2018 New predictive computer models designed to optimize HIV therapy in countries with limited healthcare resources are published online this week in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (JAC). The models, which were developed with data from tens of thousands of patients around the world, accurately predict how an individual on failing therapy will […]Continue Reading ...
March 16, 2018 Researchers at the University of Sheffield have successfully used computer simulated models and medical imaging to test the strength of young children’s bones, producing results which could help car seat manufacturers design safer car seats for young children. The study, the first on infant bone strength in relation to age/weight using models […]Continue Reading ...
October 4, 2017 Researchers are 3D printing replica human vertebrae which act and feel like real bone tissue to help train spinal surgeons before they go into live operations. A project led by Nottingham Trent University aims to give trainee surgeons the “tactic knowledge” of how it feels to partly remove or drill into vertebrae […]Continue Reading ...
