ViroPharma Announces Discontinuation of Maribavir Phase 3 Study in Liver Transplant Patients

... currently available anti-CMV agents that inhibit CMV DNA polymerase, maribavir inhibits viral DNA assembly and egress of viral capsids from the nucleus of infected cells. Maribavir also has demonstrated activity in vitro against strains of CMV that are resistant to current anti-CMV therapies. ...

Findings on Bladder-Brain Link May Point to Better Treatments for Problems in Sleep, Attention

... investigations of the neural circuits between the bladder and the brain, the researchers found that two small brain structures, the Barrington's nucleus and the locus ceruleus, developed abnormal activity as a result of the bladder obstruction. In particular, the locus ceruleus showed persistently ...

Kosan Presents Preclinical Data on Nuclear Export Inhibitors, Novel Anticancer Agents, at AACR

... NEIs are potent, specific inhibitors of CRM1, a highly conserved, essential protein that exports key regulatory proteins ("cargo" proteins) from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. Many cargo proteins that depend on CRM1 for nuclear export, such as p53, Bcr-Abl and FOXO-3a, function as tumor suppressors or ...

PET Scans Show Gene Therapy Normalizes Brain Function in Parkinson's Patients

... Kaplitt, MD, of Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan and others to deliver genes for glutamic acid decarboxylase (or GAD) into the subthalamic nucleus of the brain in Parkinson's patients. The study was designed as a phase I safety study, and the genes were delivered to only one side of the brain to ...

Sangamo BioSciences and Sigma-Aldrich Announce Nature Biotechnology Study Demonstrating Zinc Finger Technology for Modification of Human Stem Cells

... the very near future." About ZFPs ZFPs are the dominant class of naturally occurring proteins known as transcription factors and are found in the nucleus of every cell. They bind to DNA to regulate gene expression. Though there are many kinds of transcription factors, only ZFPs are amenable to ...

Benitec MOU With CalbaTech, Inc.

... is about controlling the flow of genetic information. Our genome operates by sending instructions for the manufacture of proteins from DNA in the nucleus of the cell to the protein synthesizing machinery. These instructions are conveyed by messenger RNA (mRNA). In 1998 it was discovered that a certain ...

... protein that exports key regulatory proteins ("cargo" proteins) from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. Many cargo proteins that depend on CRM1 for nuclear ... accumulation of CRM1-dependent cargo proteins sequestered in the nucleus is detected rapidly. Results also show that exposure to NEIs ...

Protein Found to Shield Pancreatic Cancer Cells from Self-Destruction

... defense mechanism that systematically destroys defective cells by forcing them to kill themselves. In apoptosis, the cells die via damage to their nucleus and DNA, with other cellular organelles preserved. Autophagy kills by degrading those other organelles while sparing the nucleus. Mehta's lab ...

DNA Therapeutics Reports a Novel Mechanism of Action and a Biomarker of its Lead Molecule Dbait That Open an Innovative Pathway-Targeting in Molecular Cancer Therapy

... phosphorylation persists more than 6 days as compared to 1 day for irradiation. Cell imaging shows that the global distribution of gamma-H2AX in the nucleus of the cells transfected by Dbait was radically different of the gamma-H2AX foci organization observed when H2AX phosphorylation was triggered by ...

Ceregene Presents Interim Phase 1 Clinical Data of CERE-110 for the Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease

... All six patients enrolled in the study underwent stereotactic neurosurgery to deliver CERE-110 into a specific region of the brain called the nucleus Basalis of Meynert (NBM) -- an area that is a source for the production of cholinergic neurons, which are known to undergo profound degeneration in ...

New Study Suggests no Significant Impairment in Middle-of-the-Night Balance, Mobility or Memory in Older Adults Using Ramelteon

... Ramelteon has a unique therapeutic mechanism of action that selectively targets two receptors located in the brain's suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). The SCN is known as the body's "master clock" because it regulates the sleep- wake cycle. * Ramelteon is not a controlled substance. A ...

Study Demonstrated Rozerem (ramelteon) Does Not Affect Middle-of-the-Night Balance in Older Adults with Insomnia

... ROZEREM has a unique therapeutic mechanism of action that selectively targets two receptors located in the brain's suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). The SCN is known as the body's "master clock" because it regulates the sleep-wake cycle. *ROZEREM is not a controlled substance. A clinical ...

Neurologix Announces Publication of Landmark Gene Therapy Study Demonstrating Safety and Statistically Significant Improvement in Patients With Advanced Parkinson's Disease

... The study used an adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector to deliver an inhibitory gene (glutamic acid decarboxylase or "GAD") to the subthalmic nucleus (STN) of the brain. In Parkinson's disease, STN activity is abnormally increased, largely due to a deficit in GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), the ...
