A new platform, named Virtual Synthon Hierarchical Enumeration Screening, has been developed by researchers to efficiently discover drugs.
Researchers have developed kidney organoids that resemble the collecting duct system, using ureteric bud progenitor cells.
Using computer modelling, a team has shown that a molecular chaperone called GRP78 could be targeted by drugs in strategies to treat COVID-19.
Regulator genes and proteins have been identified on circulating tumour cells in mice which allow them to target other organs in the body.
The human body’s blood stem cells produce approximately 10 billion new white blood cells – termed immune cells – every day. Scientists in the U.S. have now discovered that some blood stem cells pick up the slack should any others fail to achieve these levels.
Researchers in the US have undertaken meta-analysis studies to ascertain the optimum approach for doctors treating rare mixed phenotype acute leukaemia (MPAL). They found that a less-toxic regimen gives better results.
Scientists have discovered a molecule that enhances cartilage regeneration and decreases inflammation.
Researchers have developed an ultrasound-based system that can non-invasively and remotely control genetic processes in live immune T cells so that they recognise and kill cancer cells.
Liver metastases are formed from cancer cells that have originated in other organs and migrated to the liver via the bloodstream.
