A researcher has revealed that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) may increase the risk of severe lung complications in COVID-19.
Research into the structure of the drug-integrin complex has enabled the creation of drugs which inhibit integrin as effectively as currently used compounds, without causing excessive bleeding.
We are on the precipice of realising the true potential of genomics studies. Following completion of the Human Genome Project six years ago, huge strides have been made in understanding how the genome works, shedding light on disease pathogenesis and forging therapeutic efforts. In this article, Pushpanathan Muthuirulan explains how…
