Tumor Cells: Drug Addiction Could Be Their Downfall

Gene amplification has been use by the cells as a mechanism to overcome MEK1/2 inhibition of growth. Red dots show the location of each chromosome's centromere. The clusters of green dots represent copies of the BRAF gene within a chromosome (green dots clustering around a single red dot). Credit: Matthew Sale, Babraham Institute

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.
