Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

...ome resistant to most of the drugs that could once destroy it. They have already described and expressed two other genes known to confer drug resistance. "Now that we have these genes expressed in a convenient yeast system, we can work to understand the molecular basis of anti-malarial drug resistance, pr...

Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows

...lizes the white blood cells that normally seek and destroy invading bacteria. Just traces of the toxin can slow movement of these cells, called neutrophils, by 50 percent, UF researchers discovered. "Neutrophils have to get to the infection to kill anything. If you paralyze them so they don't move, they c...

Hives ferment a yeasty brew, attract beetle pest

"If we can find out how this system works, there is a good possibility we will figure out ways to protect against the beetle," says Tumlinson. Honeybees in the U.S. and Europe have been suffering from a variety of invader...

Researchers wake up viruses inside tumors to image and then destroy cancers

...atients whose infection can then be manipulated to destroy their tumors. They say this strategy could offer a novel way of treating many cancers associated with Epstein-Barr, including at least four different types of lymphoma and nasopharyngeal and gastric cancers.

The studies already completed with this vaccine suggest that it is generally well tolerated and that the response of the immune system or immunogenicity is high. In South Africa, the vaccine trial is called "Pham...

Novel antigen-cloning technique may boost efforts to develop a melanoma vaccine

...CTL," says Herlyn. "Though CTL have the ability to destroy cancer cells, they don't have the ability to call upon the full capabilities of the immune system, as do the helper T cells." The new tumor antigen discovered in her lab, RPL8, is an ideal vaccine candidate because it has the potential for eliciti...

Cancer vaccines -- Taking a jab at cancer by stimulating the immune system
