Hundreds of Potential Drug Targets to Starve Tumors Identified

Cover-2.jpg

A massive study analyzing gene expression data from 22 tumor types has identified multiple metabolic expression changes associated with cancer, as well as hundreds of potential drug targets that could cut off a tumor’s fuel supply or interfere with its ability to synthesize essential building blocks. Published in Nature Biotechnology.

Will Cell Therapy Become a “Third Pillar” of Medicine?

Treating patients with cells may one day become as common as it is now to treat the sick with drugs made from engineered proteins, antibodies or smaller chemicals, according to UC San Francisco researchers. They outlined their vision of cell-based therapeutics as a “third pillar of medicine” in an article published online April 3 in Science Translational Medicine.

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are developing a medical instrument that will be able to quickly detect a suite of biothreat agents, including anthrax, ricin, botulinum, shiga and SEB toxin. The device, once developed, approved by the Food and Drug Administration and commercialized, would most likely be used in emergency rooms in the event of a bioterrorism incident.

"After the Genome" Tackles Tough Questions About Medicine, Miracles and Morality

Medical advances in biotechnology seem to be coming faster than the public can understand them all or even discuss how society should handle ethical, legal and moral considerations. To spark the national conversation Wake Forest University has partnered with Baylor University for “After the Genome: The Language of our Biotechnological Future” April 12-13 at Wake Forest’s Benson University Center. Fourteen scholars from across North America with expertise in medicine, science, religion and communication will present.

Mutated Gene Causes Nerve Cell Death

Researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA) in Vienna have identified a completely new mechanism in the onset of motor neuron diseases. Their findings could be the basis for future treatments for these presently incurable diseases.
