Some Women Experience Heavier Periods After COVID-19 Vaccination
Women are at a slightly higher risk of having a heavier period after COVID vaccination, a study finds.
Covax-19/Spikogen: A Novel Insect-Cell Expressed Recombinant Protein Vaccine Provides Broad Based Protection Against Covid-19 Infection
Speaking at the Vaccine Research & Development 2022 online symposium, Nikolai Petrovsky, Professor of Medicine at FLinder's University, delivered his talk on the first Australian-developed vaccine in over 40 years.
How Proteins on Influenza Viruses Tilt, "Breathe"
Simulations show that the proteins on the influenza viral surface targeted by vaccines can tilt and wave in “breath-like” motions, which could be exploited to better defend against the flu.
A Storm We Can’t Weather… Yet
In a normal immune response, entry of the SARS-CoV-2 virus into lung tissue induces controlled activation of the immune system.
In this infographic, we explore what is meant by disease modeling and highlight how advanced cell models are helping researchers to overcome some of the limitations associated with classical cell lines and animal models.
Resources and Tools To Accelerate Oligonucleotide Therapeutics to Market
Oligonucleotide therapeutics are short DNA or RNA molecules that modulate the expression of target RNA for the treatment of diseases. The success of mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines has brought renewed interest to other nucleic acid drugs, and the oligo therapeutics market is expected to grow by 25–30% in the next five years with over 1,000 oligonucleotide molecules currently in the pipeline.
Targeting RNA Therapeutics to the Lung: Ten Years On.
Speaking at the Advances in Drug Discovery & Development 2022 online symposium, Sterghios Moschos delivered his talk on targeted RNA therapeutics in the lung.
Sartorius Tip Manufacturing Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
Since the onset of the pandemic, massive global need for pipette tips has more than tripled. Sartorius could significantly increase output and ill help laboratories worldwide to maintain their operations.
Immune EVaders: The Next Generation Therapeutic Agent With Amy Kauffman
In this Teach Me in 10, Lucy Lawrence and Amy Kauffman will cover what extracellular vesicles (EVs) are, the therapeutic promise they hold as well as guidance on how to culture and scale.
How COVID-19 Vaccines Are Accelerating New Cancer Treatments
The Cancer Research Institute hosted a special event with mRNA vaccine pioneers and 2021 Coley Award Winners Katalin Karikó, Ugur Sahin, Özlem Türeci and Drew Weissman. In this interview, the honorees shared their thoughts on how mRNA vaccine technology will transform cancer treatment in the future.
