Drug Combination Effective Against Chikungunya Arthritis in Mice

ArthriticHands.jpg

Chikungunya virus causes a painful, debilitating arthritis for which there is currently no treatment. A new study has found that combining a drug for rheumatoid arthritis with one that targets the chikungunya virus can eliminate the signs of arthritis in mice in the early stage of the disease.

Understanding the Genetics of Human Height

A large-scale international study involving more than 300 researchers, published today in Nature, heralds the discovery of 83 genetic variations controlling human height. To discover the 83 genetic variations, the research team measured the presence of 250,000 genetic variations in the study’s 700,000 participants – an enormous job. This study paves the way for precision medicine.

Potential New Drug Class Hits Multiple Cancer Cell Targets, Boosting Efficacy and Safety

In a new paper published this week in PNAS, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center, in collaboration with colleagues at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, the University of Colorado School of Medicine and SignalRx, a San Diego-based biopharmaceutical company, describe a potential new class of anti-cancer drugs that inhibit two or more molecular targets at once, maximizing therapeutic efficiency and safety.

UNMC Research Team Discovers Novel Pharmaceutic Action for HIV/AIDS

GendteamTeam.jpg

Using a process called LASER ART (long-acting slow effective release antiretroviral therapy), a research team has discovered an unexpected pathway to open cell storage areas for antiviral drugs. The discovery could revolutionize current treatments for HIV/AIDS by extending the actions of disease-combating medicines.

How a Bacterial Protein’s Structure Aids Biomedical Studies

A light-sensing protein from a salt-loving, sulfur-forming microbe has proved key to developing methods essential to advanced drug discovery, understanding human vision and other biomedical applications. In a review published this week in Structural Dynamics, by AIP Publishing, physicist Marius Schmidt of the University of Wisconsin‐Milwaukee presents a history of decades of research of this microbe and the many new technologies that have enabled these applications.

Drugs, Diseases and Proteins: New Archive Helps Precision Medicine, Drug Development

Tudor Oprea, MD, PhD, at UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center and his collaborators from the UK-based European Bioinformatics Institute in Hinxton and from the Institute for Cancer Research in London have created the beginnings of an open archive that links a drug’s chemical structure, its molecular biology activity and the diseases it is used to treat.

Only FDA-Approved Device to Repair "Hole in the Heart" Condition Now Available at Baylor Heart and Vascular Services at Fort Worth

Baylor Heart and Vascular Services at Fort Worth on Tuesday, November 15, became the first program in Texas to implant the only FDA-approved device designed to prevent blood clots from entering the brain by sealing a hole in the heart. The device is designed to help reduce the risk of recurrent cryptogenic strokes in patients diagnosed with a patent foramen ovale (PFO) – a small opening between the upper chambers of the heart.
