A drug target is anything within a living organism to which a drug is directed and/or binds, resulting in a change in its behaviour or function.
New findings on dementia reveal that brain atrophy spreads via connected brain networks, rather than simply adjacent areas of the brain.
Cells containing Meflin play a role in restraining the progression of pancreatic cancer and could lead to new therapies against the disease.
Microglia brain immune cells are vital in conjunction with the APOE4 gene during the development of Alzheimer’s in mouse models, researchers have found.
A technique to 'trick' bacteria into revealing pores in their cell walls has been developed and targeting these could make antibiotics more effective.
Scientists in the US have identified a particular bacterial strain, Segmented filamentous bacteria (SFB), that can prevent and cure rotavirus in mice.
A new algorithm has been developed which personalises which cancer mutations are best targets for immunotherapy.
Researchers have discovered that a specific subset of gamma delta T cells can be found in higher numbers of breast cancer survivor tissue, indicating its role in fighting the condition.
A study has uncovered the mechanism behind calcium entry and exit into T cells, which could be used in development of autoimmune disease treatments.
Researchers have identified a protein on the surface of cells that cause MS and have used antibodies as an effective treatment for the condition in mice.
Researchers have imaged an inflammation-related protein receptor on cell membranes which could inform future drug designs to prevent cell death.
Researchers have uncovered a treatment that may be used to treat heart attacks or to prevent heart failure, using the circadian clock.
A study has revealed that a mutation in the NKAP gene causes a rare syndrome, providing researchers with the potential to develop treatments for the condition.
A study has demonstrated that blocking certain receptors in mice reduced Ewing sarcoma growth and metastasis, which could be used within future treatments.
