A study has shown that treatments to reduce levels of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) in the brain may help to prevent dementia.
The study shows how drug-like small molecules inhibit the activity of Transient Receptor Potential Canonical 1/4/5 (TRPC1/4/5) channels and could transform the development of future therapies.
A collaboration between academia and industry has produced an assay and new screening technique which utilises directed evolution for the discovery of antibody-based drugs.
Researchers captured 13,000 images of a mouse norovirus using an electron microscope and compiled the images to reveal the structure of the virus.
Scientists have identified two master controller regions that are essential for alpha-synuclein aggregation and could be targeted by future therapies.
A technique to 'trick' bacteria into revealing pores in their cell walls has been developed and targeting these could make antibiotics more effective.
"As an experimental chemical, further rigorous testing and refinement of KHS101 is required before trials in people can begin.”
Scientists and chemists are re-examining old compounds to see whether they could hold the key to a future drug to combat increasingly resistant bacteria...
By developing a chemical to inhibit β-lactamase enzymes, a significant proportion of antibiotic resistance may successfully be reversed...
Since the sequence of the human genome was published some 20 years ago, omics strategies have enabled the generation of detailed molecular signatures of cancers and their subtypes.
New research led by Queen’s University Belfast has discovered how a genomic approach to understanding bowel cancer could improve the prognosis and quality of life for patients.
The human body’s peripheral nervous system could be capable of interpreting its environment and modulating pain, neuroscientists have established, after successfully studying how rodents reacted to stimulation.
