The Ras Pathway and Cancer: Regulation, Challenges and Therapeutic Progress
Article

In normal health, Ras signaling is central to the regulation of intracellular signaling networks involved in cell proliferation, growth and survival. Like many cellular signaling pathways, however, the Ras-related cascade has a dark side. Mutations in the RAS gene itself, or in upstream or downstream regulators, can push the pathway into a constitutively active, cancer-inducing state.

Quality Control in CAR T-Cell Manufacturing Using ddPCR
Article

CAR T cells are living cells, which means manufacturers, in part, depend on the cells' physiological workings to integrate and express the CAR gene in the appropriate quantity. Since this process is not entirely under a manufacturer’s control, the process of generating safe and effective CAR T cells requires meticulous quality control.
