DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

...oi said. But now that the assembly system has been worked out, other forms of dendrimer clusters are in the works. "If you wanted to make a therapeutic that targeted five drugs to five different cells, it would be 25 synthesis steps the traditional way," Baker said. At two to three months per synthesis, an...

Quantum Dots Research Leads to New Knowledge about Protein Binding in Plants

New Treatment Rivals Chemotherapy For Lymphoma, Study Finds

...SmithKline. "Given how much better this treatment worked as first-line therapy in our study, moving this treatment up earlier in the course of a patient's illness should be strongly considered instead of using it as a last resort or not at all. These results support the notion that there's a real possibili...

How an AIDS-Related Cancer Unleashes Inflammation

..., the details of the biochemistry still need to be worked out," he said. While the new knowledge of kaposin B's role will contribute to understanding how the responsible virus produces cytokines, there are likely other mechanisms at work as well, Ganem emphasized. Other viral genes are also known to be inv...
