  • Gates, Wellcome bet $40M on Kymab’s antibody tech
    Cambridge, U.K.’s Kymab touts its drug development platform as an ideal way to spotlight new antibodies, and some bright minds would seem to agree, as the Wellcome Trust and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have teamed up on a $40 million round for the biotech. Under the Series B terms,...
  • New Protein Finding Gives Hope to Infertility Patients
    Answering the question of “how do babies come in this world” is not easy at any age. You may laugh now, but as children we all heard the stories about some birds and some bees, some storks or other similar versions, while as adults, we are probably telling our children...
  • High protein levels linked to cell death in Parkinson’s
    Researchers may have discovered how a genetic mechanism in a common cause of Parkinson’s works to destroy brain cells in patients–a finding that could help scientists develop new therapies for the devastating disease. Though most causes of Parkinson’s cases are unknown, mutations in a gene called leucine-rich repeat kinase 2–or...
  • Researchers replicate controversial stem cell-cloning method
    Scientists report that they have replicated a method of growing stem cells from adults using cloning techniques–a discovery that could help propel patient-specific regenerative therapies for a myriad of medical conditions and diseases. Using cells taken from two adult men, investigators from the Research Institute for Stem Cell Research of...
  • Stabilizing protein complex in brain offers hope for Alzheimer’s treatment
    A team of investigators has identified a new class of compounds that could work in a specific protein complex in the brain to provide a safe route toward reversing the devastating symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Known as the retromer protein complex, these proteins are found in reduced levels in the brains...
  • The human ‘hairless’ gene identified
    It’s not a hair-brained idea: A new research report appearing in the April 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal explains why people with a rare balding condition called “atrichia with papular lesions” lose their hair, and it identifies a strategy for reversing this hair loss. Specifically the report shows for...
  • Stroke drug shows promise for people with Lou Gehrig’s disease
    Keck School of Medicine of USC neuroscientists have unlocked a piece of the puzzle in the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease, a debilitating neurological disorder that robs people of their motor skills. Their findings appear in the online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the...
  • Experimental drug could thwart measles outbreaks
    A new antiviral drug may provide an effective way to treat measles in those who have not been vaccinated. When tested in an oral form in animals infected with a similar version of the measles virus, the experimental drug not only prevented animals from dying of the disease, but it...
