Trials Show Pain Drug Reduces Post-Surgery Opioid Use

Initial results from two late-stage clinical trials show an experimental pain drug with non-opioid ingredients reduces the use of opioid pain relievers following surgery, compared to a placebo and standard care. . . . → Read More: Trials Show Pain Drug Reduces Post-Surgery Opioid Use

Peptide Hydrogel Boosts Cancer Immunotherapies

A team at Rice University in Houston developed an injectable gel material that in lab mice slows the release of cancer immunotherapy drugs, enhancing the treatments’ effectiveness and reducing the need for repeated doses. . . . → Read More: Peptide Hydrogel Boosts Cancer Immunotherapies

Lab Burns Graphene Circuits into Food, Fabrics

A chemistry lab at Rice University devised a process for producing graphene, a material that conducts electricity, in materials containing carbon, including fabrics and even food. . . . → Read More: Lab Burns Graphene Circuits into Food, Fabrics

Overlooked Drugs Show Promise Against Superbugs

A class of antibiotics first discovered in the 1970s, but passed by as new drugs came on the market, are getting a second look as the need intensifies for better weapons to treat infections resistant to most antibiotics. . . . → Read More: Overlooked Drugs Show Promise Against Superbugs

Vaccine Shown Effective Against Range of Flu Viruses

An experimental vaccine made with protein-infused nanoscale particles was shown to provide long-lasting protection in lab mice against a broad range of common influenza viruses. . . . → Read More: Vaccine Shown Effective Against Range of Flu Viruses

Stem Cells Created with Gene Editing

A research lab in San Francisco devised a simpler process for creating stem cells from skin cells in mice with the gene editing technique Crispr. . . . → Read More: Stem Cells Created with Gene Editing

Technique Developed for High-Speed Antibody Screening

A process is being developed to quickly discover antibodies in a person’s immune system that can also lead to new vaccines and drugs against viruses. . . . → Read More: Technique Developed for High-Speed Antibody Screening
