Designing a Vaccine To Block “Zombie Drug” Xylazine

Scripps Research chemical biologists have developed a vaccine to block the effects of xylazine’s toxicity. The vaccine works by training the immune system to attack the drug, which is described in a new paper published in Chemical Communications.

Immunotherapy Clears Amyloid Plaques in Alzheimer’s Mouse Model

Researchers have found a different and promising way to remove the noxious amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's disease: by directly mobilizing immune cells to consume them.

Antibody Target Identified Against Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus

CCHFV poses a threat to U.S. military personnel and hospital staff as well as residents of a growing number of countries, says UC Riverside biomedical scientist.

Researchers Identify Epstein-Barr Virus’ Weak Points

Studies of interactions between two lab-generated monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and an essential Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) protein have uncovered targets that could be exploited in designing treatments and vaccines for this extremely common virus.

Breast Cancer Drug's Efficacy Can Be Restored After Resistance

Researchers have shown that targeting a protein called TACC3 (transforming acidic coiled-coil containing protein 3) can restore the effectiveness of the breast cancer drug T-DM1 if the cancer cells have developed resistance.

Cell-to-Cell Communication in Cancer

We typically think of a cancerous tumor as a bunch of abnormal cells gone rogue, but the situation is more complicated. This article will explore cell-to-cell communication’s role in cancer development, its influence on metastasis and how research is expanding our knowledge of the disease.

Previously Unknown Immune Evasion Regulator in Tumors Identified

Northwestern Medicine investigators have identified a previously unknown regulator of tumor immune evasion, which may help improve the efficacy of current and future anti-tumor immunotherapies.

A Step Closer to Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Precision Therapy

New research has identified three subgroups of triple-negative breast cancer patients, based on how the tumor responds to therapy. This could enable clinicians to employ aggressive treatments only when needed.
