New Long-Acting Injectable Drug Delivery System for Tuberculosis
In 2020, more than 1.5 million people died of tuberculosis (TB). Now, researchers have developed a TB drug that showed potential with just one injection that lasts at least four months, improving on current treatment which requires daily medication.
Promising New Injectable Gel Treatment for Hard-To-Treat Brain Tumors
Researchers have developed a powerful immunity-boosting postoperative hydrogel treatment that could improve the outlook for patients with glioblastoma.
New Inhaled COVID-19 Therapy “Hacks" Viral Replication Machinery
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have created a new COVID-19 therapeutic that could one day make treating SARS-CoV-2 infections as easy as using a nasal spray for allergies.
Protein May Predict Risk of Diabetes and Death From Cancer
New research suggests that people with elevated levels of the protein prostasin, which is mainly found in epithelial cells which line the surfaces and organs of the body, may be at higher risk of developing diabetes or dying from cancer.
Benefits of TB Vaccine Seen in Infants More Than a Year After Vaccination
The immune boosting benefits of a tuberculosis vaccine can be seen in infants more than one year after vaccination, according to a new study.
Easier and Safer Method To Synthesize New Drugs
Researchers have produced a method to turn carbenes, short-lived, high-energy molecules, into much more stable ones for the synthesis of new drugs.
New Alzheimer's Drug Avoids Inflammatory Side Effects
Researchers have developed a novel drug called αAβ-Gas6 which efficiently eliminates amyloid beta – which causes Alzheimer's disease – while avoiding inflammatory side effects associated with conventional antibody treatments.
Novel Biosynthesis Method for Producing Antibiotics
A new method of producing antibiotics by modifying existing natural products by adding fluorine has been developed, opening doors for the discovery of new therapeutics.
Special Hydrogel Vastly Improves the Shelf Life of Vaccines
Researchers have now developed a special hydrogel that vastly improves the shelf life of vaccines, even without refrigeration.
High-Protein Diet Changes the Gut Microbiome and Triggers Immune Response
A new study from researchers at the University of Sydney has explored how 10 different diets – including those high in protein, carbohydrates and fat – affect the gut microbiota in mice.
