The Glycome and Cancer
Article

The surfaces of cancer cells frequently express different types of glycoproteins, and because healthy cells don’t express these molecules (or do so at a much lower level), there has been significant interest in them as potential anticancer targets. Recent advances suggest we are about to see a resurgence in cancer glycomics.

Mass Spectrometry in Biopharmaceutical Discovery
Article

Biotherapeutics now makes up 25% of new drugs approvals. Their efficacy and safety are highly dependent on their structures, which are complex, heterogeneous and subject to modification. Advances in mass spectrometry are allowing more information on higher order structure and new imaging techniques are even providing insights into how biological drugs behave in vivo.

Exploiting the Tumor Microenvironment for Cancer Therapeutics
Article

It’s more than a century since Paget first proposed the ‘soil and seed’ hypothesis in cancer, providing evidence that the environment surrounding a tumor is as important as the tumor itself. Research in this area has gathered momentum and it’s now the focus of intense research efforts.
