Nanoparticles Boost T-Cells to Fight Leukemia

A cancer research lab designed a process to treat leukemia by reprogramming cells in the immune system with genes on nanoscale biodegradable particles. . . . → Read More: Nanoparticles Boost T-Cells to Fight Leukemia

Corn, Shellfish Ingredients Enable DNA Vaccine Pills

Biomaterials researchers discovered substances from corn and shellfish can package genetic material to pass through the digestive system, making possible vaccines as pills rather than injections. . . . → Read More: Corn, Shellfish Ingredients Enable DNA Vaccine Pills

FDA, Emulate to Test Organs-on-Chips for Drug Toxins

A joint venture between Food and Drug Administration and a developer of chip devices simulating human organs, is evaluating the chips as a way to test new drugs for toxic effects. . . . → Read More: FDA, Emulate to Test Organs-on-Chips for Drug Toxins

NIH Funds Drug-Resistant Malaria Therapy Trial

An agency of National Institutes of Health is funding a clinical trial of a new malaria drug engineered to overcome resistance developed to earlier treatments. . . . → Read More: NIH Funds Drug-Resistant Malaria Therapy Trial

Engineered Bacteria Designed to Detect Gut Inflammation

A bioengineering team at Rice University developed a genetically modified form of bacteria that in lab mice detects inflammatory diseases in the gut. . . . → Read More: Engineered Bacteria Designed to Detect Gut Inflammation

Antibody Shows Promise Against Marburg Virus Infections

Tests with lab animals show an experimental synthetic antibody protects against deadly Marburg and Ravn viruses as long as 5 days following infections. . . . → Read More: Antibody Shows Promise Against Marburg Virus Infections

Prodrugs Designed to Better Target Cancer Therapies

A delivery mechanism is being developed to package cancer drugs in a nanoscale precursor state that reacts only in tumor regions, to protect against adverse effects. . . . → Read More: Prodrugs Designed to Better Target Cancer Therapies

Enhanced Gene Therapy Boosts Anti-Tumor Response

Gene therapies delivered with electronic pulses were shown in lab mice to increase production of natural immune-system proteins and reduce melanoma, or advanced skin cancer, tumors. . . . → Read More: Enhanced Gene Therapy Boosts Anti-Tumor Response

CARB-X Commits $48M for Antibiotic Resistance R&D

A public-private partnership is spending $48 million in grants to biotechnology companies for research on treatments and diagnostics to counter antibiotic resistance, with half of that amount distributed immediately. . . . → Read More: CARB-X Commits $48M for Antibiotic Resistance R&D

Diet Enhancing Gut Microbes Shown to Slow Type 1 Diabetes

A diet that produces certain short-chain fatty acids in the gut is shown in lab mice to support the immune system and slow the onset of type 1 diabetes. . . . → Read More: Diet Enhancing Gut Microbes Shown to Slow Type 1 Diabetes
