The length of time between the administration of a COVID-19 vaccine and evidence of a robust immune response to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) means that treatments are still required. In this article, Sheraz Gul and Alp Tegin Sahin explore the various therapeutic targets that have been identified…

Dr Louis Boon offers guidance on how to select the best CHO cell for the upstream bioprocessing of biologics. He also explains how automation can aid monoclonality and why the most efficient approach during the development of biological drugs is to utilise an established cell line platform.
Sheraz Gul reviews where we are a year into the COVID-19 pandemic and the treatment options currently available. He also highlights the potential opportunities and challenges posed by SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.
In this ebook, find articles exploring some of the assays used to identify the most promising COVID-19 drugs and discussing the development of a novel assay to reveal potential peptide therapeutics for cancer.
In this issue, find articles discussing how high-throughput experimentation can enhance automated molecular discovery, why bNAbs present a promising COVID-19 treatment and how a novel rhinovirus vaccine was developed. Also included are features on immuno-oncology, cell line development and assays.
Professor David Merryman explains how his team targeted the serotonin 2B receptor in animal models to preserve cardiac function six weeks after a heart attack.
Professor Martin Michaelis and Dr Mark Wass explain why new SARS-CoV-2 variants are emerging around the world and how vaccines will have to adapt in response.
Dr Ying Kai Chan discusses his latest research into how the delivery of AAV vectors for gene therapies can be made safer and more effective.
A year on from discovering COVID-19 we are starting to understand why some people suffer more severely after infection. Sadya Arnett discusses recent research into the interconnection between host inflammation and SARS-CoV-2.
Mark Mortenson, CSO of Clene Nanomedicine, discusses the use of proprietary gold nanocrystals as catalysts to prevent the progression of, and act as a treatment for, neurodegenerative disease.
This article introduces insights into combatting multidrug resistance via high-throughput laboratory evolution, pointing to the mechanisms of underlying evolved drug resistance.
Vito Quaranta, professor of biochemistry and pharmacology, discusses how cancerous cells adopting novel mechanisms of energy production could be sensitised to existing therapies with a focus on melanoma.
In this article, Ian Chan, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of biotech company Abpro, discusses the development of neutralising antibodies for SARS-CoV-2. Abpro’s neutralising antibody candidate ABP 300 is currently in Phase II/III trials.
