Inflammatory biomarkers as a herbal anti-arthritic drug discovery tool

11 July 2017 | By , , , , ,

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is joint-related, immune-based inflammatory disarray that affects almost 1% of the world’s population. The most evidenced pathogenesis is T-cell activation, which leads to clusters of differentiation (CD) in the T-cells and concurrently increases various inflammatory biomarkers.

Development by design methodology: the key to successful manufacturing of patient-specific cell therapies

11 July 2017 | By ,

Recognised as the next wave of medicine, cell therapies have made significant strides over the last several years. But such advancements can present unique challenges, especially as more products move out of the clinic and toward commercialisation. And unlike typical pharmaceuticals, cell therapies rely heavily on the manufacturing process to…

New drug targets identified to defend against chlamydia infections using CRISPR and stem cells

7 July 2017 | By

Human induced pluripotent stem cell derived macrophages (iPSDMs) provide a cell-based model system to study chlamydia infection in the laboratory. Amy Yeung from Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute explains how she used this model in combination with CRISPR-Cas 9 technology to explore the potential of the two genes, IRF5 and IL10RA,…
