Exploiting a Chink in the Armor of Brain Tumor Cells

Figure shows patient-derived glioblastoma in murine brain treated with saline (control, left panel) or clemastine (right panel). Glioblastoma cells (red) are known to invade the brain (blue). Invasive glioblastoma cells are impossible to remove by surgery and exhibit high resistance to chemotherapies. Clemastine-treatment destroyed the invasive cells leading to clear tumor/brain border.

Bioactive Agents Improve Synthetic Bone Substitutes

News

Synthetic bone substitutes are promising materials for bone defect repair, but their efficacy can be substantially improved by bioactive agents such as growth factors. In a new study, researchers have modified beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) with increasing quantities of bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) derived from E. coli and shown improved bone healing.
