Targeting ION Channels with Biologics

Video   Dec 23, 2016

 

Ion channels are complex integral membrane proteins that form a pore through which ions selectively pass down an electrochemical gradient and are present in all cell types. They are particularly prominent components of the nervous system where they can mediate transduction across synapses. Hence, certain channels potentially represent good drug targets, especially for alleviating pain. However, ion channels are arguably the most technically challenging class of proteins to target with a biologic due to their complex membrane-integrated structures , large size and multiple functional conformations.

The World's First Bioelectronic Medicine

Video

Northwestern University and Washington University School of Medicine researchers have developed the first example of a bioelectronic medicine: an implantable, biodegradable wireless device that speeds nerve regeneration and improves healing of a damaged nerve. Their device delivered pulses of electricity to damaged nerves in rats after a surgical repair process, accelerating the regrowth of nerves and enhancing the recovery of muscle strength and control. The device is the size of a dime and the thickness of a sheet of paper and dissolves in the body after about two weeks.
