Personalized medicine is a term you hear a lot in life science and drug industry discussions. Follow along as Rob Fee, Editor-in-Chief of Bioscience Technology, introduces the first video in a six-part series from both Drug Discovery & Development and Bioscience Technology that will explain what personalized medicine is, how it works and the potential of this concept.
Cardio3 BioSciences, an international Mayo Clinic collaborator, has received FDA approval for a Phase 3 pivotal clinical trial of its stem cell therapy. Watch the video to see how stem cells are being used to treat people with heart failure.
Stephen Ferguson, a scientist at Western's Robarts Research Institute, and Fabiola Ribeiro of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Brazil found a definite improvement in motor behaviors in a HD mouse model when one of the major neurotransmitters in the brain was deleted. Which one? Find out...
The cancer research community experienced a sea change in 2013 as a strategy, decades in the making, finally cemented its potential. Promising results emerged from clinical trials of cancer immunotherapy, in which treatments target the body's immune system rather than tumors directly. Read more...
Researchers at the University of Missouri have developed a three-dimensional microscope that will yield unparalleled study of membrane proteins and how they interact on the cellular level. Could these microscopes help pharmaceutical companies bring drugs to market faster? Find out...
A new method to identify previously hidden details about the structures of proteins may speed the process of novel drug design, according to scientists at Rice University. How could this work affect pharmaceutical companies that design drugs? Find out...
In their ongoing quest to develop the latest and most effective drugs for disease treatment, pharmaceutical researchers are looking deep— as in, deep underground.
In this webinar we introduce NanoBRET™ using a donor/accpetor combination consisting of NanoLuc™ luciferase and Halotag® labeling technology.
Immunocore Limited announced that its most advanced ImmTAC drug, IMCgp100 for the treatment of late stage melanoma, has reached Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and the dose escalation part of this phase 1 clinical study has been completed. How are melanoma cancer cells killed by T cells when activated by the drug? Watch now...
Earlier this month, MPI Research broke ground for a new preclinical imaging center, which will open in spring 2014 in Mattawan, Mich. How will this new facility help advance drug development? Scott Haller, director of the new molecular imaging center, explains.
A recent study by a University of Missouri researcher shows that resveratrol, a compound found in grape skins and red wine, can make certain tumor cells more susceptible to radiation treatment. Can researchers develop a successful method to deliver the compound to tumor sites to treat many cancers?
At a recent forum in the UK, researchers explained how microneedle technology could revolutionize the way drugs are delivered– from small molecules to vaccines and biological compounds.
Kaiser Permanente Northern California nearly doubled the rate of blood pressure control among adult members with diagnosed hypertension through one of the largest, community-based hypertension programs in the nation. The program encouraged single-pill combination therapy— combining multiple drugs into one pill.
Researchers have provided the first comprehensive compendium of mutational processes that drive tumor development. Together, these mutational processes explain most mutations found in 30 of the most common cancer types. This new understanding of cancer development could help to treat and prevent a wide range of cancers.
Simultaneous, Formalin-Free Preservation of Tissue Biomarkers and Morphology for Biomarker Discovery and BiobankingJune 17, 2013 11:47 am Webinars Comments
In this webinar, PreAnalytix will introduce a new technology, the PAXgene Tissue System, which preserves tissue morphology, DNA, RNA, miRNA, proteins, and phosphoproteins in the same sample without cross-linking of biomolecules or damage to the tissue architecture or histomorphology.
