Drugs that were being developed to treat enterovirus have also been found to treat certain cancers in mice.
A study in mice has found that a compound modelled on a protein found in bananas safely protects against multiple strains of the influenza virus.
A new study into why neurons in the gut die and how the immune system protects them could lead to better treatments for IBS that work by boosting polyamine production.
Recent research into why autoimmune disorders affect women four times more frequently than men has revealed several novel therapeutic targets that may lead to the development of future treatments.
Researchers have produced a capillary model which allows investigation of the dynamics of blood flow obstruction in real scale and could be used to test new therapies for P. falciparum malaria.
A new experimental drug was shown by researchers to restore natural brain rhythms in mouse models of Alzheimer’s and promote learning and memory.
A study suggests there may be common genetic pathways between alcohol use disorder and other addictions, so GWAS identification of affected genes could provide the targets for new therapies.
A possible new avenue for treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) has opened up after US scientists pinpoint how the cancer spreads using excessive amounts of vitamin B6.
A team of scientists in the United States has successfully used a drug, which blocks AHR receptors, to prevent and treat obesity in mice. Their findings have spurred further research into the receptors’ association with diet and the gut microbiome.
Researchers have found inhibiting vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA) signalling can mediate psoriasis development in the epidermis and could be a potential target for novel therapies.
PPP2R2A gene allele deletion in prostate cancers promotes the uncontrolled division of cells, reinstatement of its protein causes cancer cell death, so could provide a new therapeutic option.
In a world first, researchers have grown immune cells from pluripotent stem cells in a dish, which could be used to develop immunotherapies or to test autoimmune disease treatments.
Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assays (ELISAs) are one of the most common immunoassays on the market.
