Immunotherapy has proven to be effective in treating a variety of cancers. This article sorts out some of the latest research findings on cancer immunotherapy.
Cancer Res: Scientists identify potential new targets for cancer immunotherapy: GARP  According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in men and women. Although significant progress has been made in the treatment of such cancers, the 5-year survival rate of colorectal cancer patients is only 12%. Recently, in a research report published in Cancer Research, scientists from the University of South Carolina Medical University found a potential new target for colorectal cancer immunotherapy. Similar to PD-1, GARP is a special protein expressed on the surface of immune cells. R…
Recently, hearing of mice with a genetic form of deafness which is similar to a type found in people was restored by a team of international researchers. This brings new hope for people suffering from hearing loss. Will genetic therapy be a new way to heal deafness? A senior scientist of Creative Biolabs explains more about this work.
Why choose gene therapy to do research? Hearing loss is the most common sensory impairment in humans, which, according to statistics, currently disables 466 million people in the world. And the incidence of genetic hearing loss in newborns reaches up to 1‰. Many cases show that hearing loss is actually related to genetic DNA mutations, and there are nearly 100 genes known to be related, such as GJB2, SLC26A4, 12SrRNA, etc. Mutations in hereditary hearing loss…

Enzymes are involved in the formation and composition of every cell in the body. Thus they also control the working of every organ and even the brain - the control center.
Enzymes are involved in the formation and composition of every cell in the body. Thus they also control the working of every organ and even the brain - the control center. They are involved in the breakdown, absorption, distribution and circulation of various nutrients entering the body. Overall, it would be sufficient to say that life would be non-existent without enzymes.   How many of us have ever been concerned about our gut health and how enzymes affect the digestive process. It obviously is the last thing that one would care about after a whole busy day and the same regular stressing lifestyle. People will not…
Scientists have found a way to detect blood in order to accurately identify Alzheimer's disease several years in advance. This has made early intervention possible for people who have Alzheimer's disease but yet haven’t fully realized such a fact.
Previously, early detection of Alzheimer’s disease seems to be very difficult as it takes years for the symptoms to become obvious. Fortunately, scientists have found a way to detect blood in order to accurately identify Alzheimer's disease several years in advance. This has made early intervention possible for people who have Alzheimer's disease but yet haven’t fully realized such a fact. The struggle against Alzheimer's has been on-going for over one hundred years, but so far we have not found a way to control or reverse cognitive decline and me…
As proof-of-concept projects begin to highlight IDMP’s different real-world use cases, and illustrate the potential benefits, stakeholders must come together and give greater emphasis to patients in 2020– which starts with giving them a seat at the table, says Frits Stulp of Iperion Life Sciences Consultancy.
As proof-of-concept projects begin to highlight IDMP’s different real-world use cases, and illustrate the potential benefits, stakeholders must come together and give greater emphasis to patients in 2020– which starts with giving them a seat at the table, says Frits Stulp of Iperion Life Sciences Consultancy. If 2019 was the year of progress around common definitions for medicinal substances, in an IDMP context, then 2020 needs to be the year of product-related data progress – and of p…
Enzymes work in a mild environment, similar to the physical environment of living organisms. Enzymes support life by synthesizing and degrading the materials that make up the components of the organism and creating energy.
Enzymes are molecules, especially proteins that help to accelerate biochemical reactions by interacting with components (reactants and products) without permanently changing them. This promotion process is called catalysis, and accordingly, the enzyme is recognized as a catalyst. Like many participants in the microbiology community, the names of enzymes can be lengthy and cumbersome, and almost all names end with "-ase". However, if you are familiar with the formal system of enzyme naming, you can unravel many mysteries about the function of a given enzyme without knowin…
Over recent years, research into the causes and effects of ageing has intensified. This is largely driven by an ageing population and the consequent acute need to keep people fit and healthy as they get older. Fail to do so, and we risk placing even greater strain on already staggering healthcare systems.
Over recent years, research into the causes and effects of ageing has intensified. This is largely driven by an ageing population and the consequent acute need to keep people fit and healthy as they get older. Fail to do so, and we risk placing even greater strain on already staggering healthcare systems. Recent advancements in the fields of technology and personalised nutrition are laying the foundations to enable better self-care among older adults. Transforming these quickly into effect…
Enzymes reduce the activation energy response that needs to occur, thus allowing our body to perform a series of reactions at low temperatures. Enzymes are the proteins that are needed in our system. Without them, we will not be able to survive.
Enzymes are vital to the human body. Without enzymes, cells in our body will not be able to carry out chemical reactions because the energy required is too grate. Enzymes reduce the activation energy response that needs to occur, thus allowing our body to perform a series of reactions at low temperatures. Enzymes are the proteins that are needed in our system. Without them, we will not be able to survive. The name of the enzyme depends on the action of the enzyme. Lipases break down fatty acids (lipids), and proteases break down proteins.   Se…

Summary: Opioid and drug misuse has profound economic and health consequences on Americans, including a rise in certain infectious diseases throughout our nation.
Opioid and drug misuse has profound economic and health consequences on Americans, including a rise in certain infectious diseases throughout our nation. Drug misuse is linked to marked increases in acute hepatitis C infections, increases in acute hepatitis B infections in some states, and hepatitis A outbreaks in 30 states since 2016. Injection drug use has also been associated with local HIV outbreaks in multiple areas of the country. In 2017, approximately 9% of new HIV cases in the United States were linked to injection drug use, threatening prior progress made in reducing HIV. The data show that we cannot look at…

Alzheimer's disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorder for the elderly. Early-onset Alzheimer's is rare that develops before age 65, primarily genetically influenced. Generally, the patients older than age 65 who account for a large proportion among the whole patients suffer from late-onset Alzheimer’s. The patients with late-onset Alzheimer’s have to fight against a series of frustrating symptoms, such as memory loss, poor language skills, unstable emotions, and no self-care ability, which may lead to numerous troubles or burden for themselves and the family members.

For quite a long time, it remains a puzzle as to what causes Alzheimer's disease. There are different opinions on this matter. Previously, tau and β-amyloid are to blame. In this article, let's see what new findings have been discovered.
Overactive neurons in specific regions of the brain are thought to be early disturbances of Alzheimer's disease. In a new study, researchers from the Technical University of Munich, Germany, were the first to explain the causes and mechanisms of this early neurological dysfunction. They found that the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate persisted for too long in the vicinity of active neurons. This causes these neurons to suffer from pathological over-stimulation, which is likely to be a key factor in learning and memory loss in patients with Alzheimer'…
