Experimental Alzheimer’s Drug Lecanemab Slows Cognitive Decline in Clinical Trial
A significant development in Alzheimer’s disease research has been announced by the drug company Eisai. In a press release, the company said that their investigational anti-amyloid beta (Aβ) protofibril antibody lecanemab has produced modest but highly statistically significant results in trial.
The Uniqsis ColdChip™ A Standalone Flow Chemistry Module for Exothermic Reactions
The Uniqsis ColdChip™ is a new versatile mixer/reactor module enabling researchers to experiment with different chemistries particularly exothermic reactions that need to be safely run in a cooled environment with highly efficient mixing. Compact in design, and requiring no input power, the ColdChip™ is optimised for use with the Uniqsis FlowSyn and FlowLab range of flow reactors as well as standalone pumps.
Bitcoin Mining Compared to Fossil Fuels in Terms of Its Environmental Footprint
Taken as a share of the market price, the climate change impacts of mining the digital cryptocurrency Bitcoin is more comparable to the impacts of extracting and refining crude oil than mining gold, according to recent research.
Fungi Are Living in Human Tumors
A large collaborative study by the Weizmann Institute of Science and the University of California San Diego (UCSD) has discovered multiple species of fungi living within human tumors.
Liking Another Group Doesn't Mean You Dislike Your Own
According to a study, liking a group different from your own does not mean you have bad feelings about your own group.
Liquid Biopsy: Reading the Signs of Disease From Biofluid
Liquid biopsy is a novel diagnostic tool, which seeks for signs of disease from various biofluids. This article will explore recent developments in the liquid biopsy field and the impact they are making on patients.
A Conversation on Immunity
Dr. Jenna Macciochi is a lecturer in immunology at the University of Sussex, where her research centers on understanding the role that nutrition and lifestyle play in human immunity. Technology Networks sat down with Dr. Macciochi to ask: how can we really stay well? What has immunological research taught us about the effects of modern lifestyle on our bodies and what are some of the latest breakthroughs in this field?
A Degeneration of Trust
Recently, an expose article was published revealing a potential fabrication of data by prominent investigators of Alzheimer’s disease. In this op-ed piece, Michael Kinch explores the catastrophic impact of scientific fraud.
Seamless Science for 3D Cell Models
The journey to discovering novel drug targets starts with building a deep understanding of the underlying biology. To achieve this, researchers are increasingly looking to 3D cell cultures to bridge the gap between 2D cell cultures and in vivo animal models.
Cryogenically Storing Animal Cell Cultures
Maintaining the health of growing cell cultures is a demanding task made more difficult by the perpetual risk of loss through accidents or contamination. In addition, actively growing cell cultures are subject to age-related or environmentally-induced changes which can result in their ongoing evolution and potential loss.
The Growing Importance of Mitochondrial Toxicity Assessment in Drug Discovery and Development
The pharmaceutical industry spent decades bringing several drugs to the market, only to be withdrawn due to liver failure, associated with mitochondrial toxicity. The tests available at the time could not detect this toxicity and drug developers were presented a market withdrawal risk.
Five Ways To Measure Immunotherapy Potency
This listicle highlights five commonly used cell viability assays and their benefits and limitations in immunotherapy potency testing.
