A new study has shown the possibility of using RNA splicing as a potential molecular target for Alzheimer's disease.
A new method to reactivate 'tumour suppressor' genes switched off by cancer cells could lead to new targeted biotherapies for cancer.
Almost all animal subjects exposed to genital herpes were protected by the novel vaccine.
CRISPR is the buzzword of the moment in the drug discovery industry – mainly due to its potential to correct disease-causing mutations. However, those using the technology need to be mindful that it is used responsibly, and possible risks are considered before use. Mark Behlke discusses the potential of CRISPR…
A potential treatment for polycystic kidney disease has shown positive results in animal testing.
The number of oligonucleotide-based platforms on the market is constantly increasing and has led to the emergence of innovative nucleic acid-based therapeutic modalities such as CRISPR-Cas, sgRNAs or mRNAs.
New study finds immunotherapy reduces cardiac fibrosis and restores heart function in mice after cardiac injury.
Structural and functional study of the nervous system, also known as Neuroscience, is one of the scientific fields that has always crystallized the hopes and fantasy of humankind - not only interms of disease understanding and treatment but also in terms of capacity improvement.
Researchers discover that a non-coding region of the genome originates a key molecule for the proliferation of cancerous tumours.
A research team have found a signalling pathway which plays a critical role in the maturation of periodontal ligament, providing information for the development of dental treatments.
A research team have developed a new CRISPR platform called RESCUE (RNA Editing for Specific C to U Exchange).
Researchers have analysed the physical origin and biological consequences of DNA-RNA hybrids which could inform gene therapies.
A recent study has uncovered a key mechanism that allows some of the world's deadliest viruses to replicate.
Many studies indicating that DNA nanostructures can enter cells more readily than simple DNA strands are 'flawed'.
