Chemists have designed triple-threat cancer-fighting polymer capsules for guided drug delivery. They combine three traits: good imaging contrast with low-power ultrasound, stable packaging of the cancer drug doxorubicin, and ability to trigger drug release with low- or higher-power ultrasound.

When Proteins Court Each Other, the Dance Moves Matter

proteinvibes.jpg

Proteins shake their bodies and wave their limbs — essentially dancing — all with the goal of optimizing their interaction with other molecules, including other proteins. A new study shows that, in biological courtship, dance moves matter. The findings help to lay a foundation for the development of drugs targeting molecular vibrations. Such pharmaceuticals would block proteins from carrying out tasks that contribute to disease.

Exact Replication of Cancer Studies May Speed Development of Improved Cancer Drugs

In response to rising concern that many published scientific results may be false, the Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology set out to replicate findings from the 50 most cited cancer studies from 2010–2012. A perspective in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry journal discusses the project’s preliminary results and suggests changes the research community can make to prevent reproducibility issues from inhibiting cancer care.

The patient ingests a capsule containing two miniature cameras on either end. As the capsule travels through the digestive tract, it captures images and wirelessly transmits them to a recorder the patient wears on a belt.
