As the threat of antibiotic resistance looms, microbiologists aren’t the only ones thinking up new solutions. James Zou, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical data science at Stanford, has applied machine learning to create an algorithm that generates thousands of entirely new virtual DNA sequences with the intent of one day creating antimicrobial proteins. The algorithm, called Feedback GAN, […]Continue Reading ...
A clinical trial at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and other centers found that patients responded to a new “smart drug” for women with an aggressive form of breast cancer.Continue Reading ...
Scientists at Linköping University have developed a new method to produce hydrated materials, hydrogels, that have properties similar to the natural environment of cells in the body. They describe in an article in Biofabrication how to adapt the material to the various requirements of difficult-to-culture cell types, and to produce organ-like structures on a microchip. […]Continue Reading ...
An increasing number of new anti-cancer drugs are made available each year. During the authorization process, such new drugs usually undergo comparisons to one, but only rarely to multiple established drugs. This practice leads to a lack of comparisons between therapies, and makes it increasingly difficult for physicians to choose the best treatment for their […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers of the Veterinary Faculty of the CEU Cardenal Herrera University (CEU UCH) and the National Institute of Farming and Food Research and Technology (INIA) have designed a new protocol to synchronize heats and ovulation periods to improve the reproduction of ovine cattle, which is based on the use of natural hormones. This new system […]Continue Reading ...
Feb 13 2019 Method for growing kidney organoids under flow enhances their vascularization and maturation, increasing their potential for drug testing and regenerative medicine In recent years, researchers have created mini-organs known as organoids in the culture dish that contain many of the cell types and complex microarchitectures found in human organs, such as the […]Continue Reading ...
FRIDAY, Feb. 8, 2019 — Optimism may be key to coping with chronic pain, claims a new study of soldiers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. And you don’t need to be a vet to benefit from a positive attitude, the research suggests. Among nearly 21,000 veterans, those with a positive outlook before they were […]Continue Reading ...
New insights on circumventing a key obstacle on the road to anti-scarring treatment have been published by Maksim Plikus, an associate professor in development and cell biology at the UCI School of Biological Sciences and colleagues in Nature Communications. The research team discovered that the natural scar-free skin repair process relies partially on assistance from […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina reveal a novel binding site for a class of anti-cancer drugs known as E1 inhibitors. This finding could lead to the design of more efficient E1 inhibitors. A research team at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has discovered a new mechanism for a class of […]Continue Reading ...
The study of natural toxins and their derivatives may help in the development of medicines to treat diseases like cancer and osteoarthritis, says coordinator of the Center of Excellence in New Target Discovery. Animal venoms are the subject of study at research center based at the Butantan Institute in São Paulo. But in this case, […]Continue Reading ...
Feb 13 2019 Preventing infections will help us get antimicrobial resistance (AMR) under control, according to a new plan from the UK Government. Darius Hughes Increasing the use of vaccines to prevent people from catching infections in the first place could help the UK reduce the number of antibiotics it uses and start turning the […]Continue Reading ...

Researchers Subhash Tripathi, Ankitha Shetty and Tommi Välikangas from Turku Centre for Biotechnology celebrate the new publication. The study is part of the dissertation research of Ankitha Shetty and Tommi Välikangas. The research groups of Academy Professor Riitta Lahesmaa and Research Director Laura Elo from Turku Centre for Biotechnology have discovered new proteins that regulate […]Continue Reading ...
A new study in children aged 6 to 12 years of dasotraline, a promising new treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), showed significant improvement in efficacy in the treatment of ADHD compared to placebo beginning at week 1 and continuing throughout the study. A detailed description of the trial design and the results is […]Continue Reading ...
