Researchers from the University of Illinois have identified a new class of ribosomally synthesised and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) named "daptides" that have haemolytic activity.
Scientist and doctors from Spain have uncovered that oxaliplatin, a chemotherapy drug used to treat colon and rectal cancer, avoids the side effects this treatment can have on normal tumour cells, including potential chemotherapy resistance
British researchers uncover peptide: PEPITEM that could reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related conditions.
Scientists from Rice University are using fluorescence lifetime to shed new light on a peptide associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
The researchers developed nanoparticles able to penetrate the neural retina and deliver mRNA to the photoreceptor cells whose proper function makes vision possible.
The researchers explored the possibility of using the probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus reuteri as a novel oral drug delivery platform to treat rheumatoid arthritis in an animal model.
Researchers have found peptides that bind to chains of ubiquitin proteins in cancer cells, suggesting they could be used as a therapeutic strategy.
German researchers have designed peptides that bind to amyloidogenic proteins linked to Alzheimer’s and type 2 diabetes, to effectively suppress both cytotoxic amyloid aggregation and amyloid cross-accelerating interactions.
A new implant that combines internal radiation and chemotherapy dissolved tumours in mice across multiple models.
Researchers have eradicated malignant tumours in mice by combining an immunotherapy agent with a molecular delivery system that targets tumour acidity.
Using computational screening, researchers have discovered an antibiotic called Dynobactin, that halts the advance of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Potential uses for the study could include repairing spinal cord injuries and a range of other localised injection applications.
