Researchers have developed a screening system and identified a set of compounds that protect neuronal mitochondria in mice.
Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assays (ELISAs) are one of the most common immunoassays on the market.
Researchers have produced a mathematical framework enabling quick assessment of how different parameters control interactions between molecules with multiple binding sites.
Lab-grown brain organoids from patients’ glioblastomas could be useful models to rapidly test and identify effective personalised treatments, find researchers.
Researchers have developed a luciferase assay that can be used to monitor the effects of treatments on six different molecular targets at once.
Gene editing using the CRISPR system has been established as the most powerful tool in the search for new drugs and is now being exploited for therapeutic purposes. Here, Pushpanathan Muthuirulan discusses the promises and wider opportunities of using CRISPR technology to open up the possibility of large-scale screening of…
Open innovation – a collaboration between academia and the pharmaceutical industry to further leverage drug discovery expertise and assets
Increasing numbers of companies in the pharma industry are consolidating their services and outsourcing to CROs to reduce business costs. AstraZeneca’s Marian Preston, David Murray and Mark Wigglesworth discuss how this can not only drive innovation but also prove successful in identifying lead compounds, as evidenced through recent collaborations.
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell transfer has had success as a treatment for leukemia and lymphoma, but solid tumors have been more challenging due to the rarity of true tumor-specific target molecules and the immunosuppressive nature of the tumor microenvironment.
Expert view – The Octet HTX system: enabling multi-purpose screening of therapeutic biologics during development
Current trends in the development of therapeutic biologics suggest that engineered molecules such as bispecific antibodies and antibody-drug conjugates are the future of the industry, yet despite this, monoclonal antibody (mAb) development remains a dominant focus.
Kinase-mediated phosphorylation is a control point for nearly all activity within a cell, making kinases important in many diseases.
This issue includes a discussion on the future of high-throughput screening through collaboration, an analysis of mass spectrometry as a structural biology tool and an exploration of the challenges of hit-to-lead when researching tropical diseases. Also in the issue are articles on immuno-oncology and assays.
The Olympus scanR high-content screening station rapidly acquires quantitative data from cell-based assays
Self-learning microscopy opens new horizons in high-content analysis and advances phenotypic screening.
