Scientists have demonstrated that AR-12 can inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication and are working to initiate clinical trials evaluating the antiviral drug.
Researchers report that removing the vSLFN gene from the ectromelia virus (ECTV) caused a potent immune response which protected animal models.
Scientists explore whether the anti-stress drug, 4-Phenylbutiric acid (4-PBA), could prevent cytokine storms causing respiratory failure in COVID-19 patients.
Inhaled general anaesthetics have been used for over 100 years and continue to be used daily for surgeries around the world. But how do they induce changes to consciousness? This article explores the research that suggests the anaesthetics chloroform and isoflurane disrupt the organisation of lipid rafts within cellular membranes…
Having resolved the structure of psychedelic drugs bound to the 5-HT2A serotonin receptor researchers are now developing new therapeutic drugs.
The non-infectious quantum dot probes are designed to enable researchers to safely study interactions between the SARS-CoV-2 Spike (S) protein and human cells.
According to researchers, the DMBT1S8 molecule can halt inflammation in the respiratory tract through its interaction with the Siglec-8 receptor on immune cells.
Researchers showed CXCL1 signalling to neutrophils drove brain inflammation in herpes simplex virus (HSV) encephalitis and blocking the protein resulted in less severe disease.
SARS-CoV-2 entry into human cells is dependent on heparan sulfate and disrupting this interaction using heparin reduces infectivity of the coronavirus, find scientists.
There are currently no licenced pharmaceuticals to treat cocaine addiction. To overcome this issue, US researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have been exploring how cocaine alters transcription in the nucleus accumbens, a region of the brain implicated in compulsive drug use. Here, Hannah Balfour discusses with Dr…
The component, now developed into a drug called Ab8, was highly effective at treating and preventing SARS-CoV-2 infection in animal models.
The detailed analysis of adenosquamous cancer of the pancreas (ASCP) suggested FGFR and RORC were two promising therapeutic targets.
The study evaluating Down syndrome endothelial cells presented novel drug targets for leukaemia and suggested why DS patients may be at greater risk from the cancer.
