Cancer immunotherapy and precision oncology

In a healthy individual, the immune system responds to “foreign” cells (such as cancer) by attacking and eliminating them. Unfortunately, […]

Anti-Ageing Gene LAV-BPIFB4: A Breakthrough for Heart Health?

In a recent study published in the journal Cardiovascular Research, researchers investigated whether the longevity-associated variant of the bactericidal/permeability-increasing fold21 […]

New Study Explores the Impact of Genetic, Familial and Individual Factors on Major Depressive Disorder

In a recent study published in Nature, researchers used Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) data (a type of MRI scan) to […]

Immature Cells Enhance Chemotherapy in Pancreatic Cancer

A new study published in Nature has found that during chemotherapy, immature immune cells called megakaryocyte-erythroid progenitors (MEPs) enhance the […]

A Spotlight On: Genetics and Mental Health – Gerome Breen

Gerome Breen, Professor of Psychiatric Genetics, King’s College London. Please note the transcript has been edited for brevity and clarity. […]

CRISPR-based therapy alleviates Huntington’s disease symptoms in mouse models

Researchers have investigated the application of RNA-targeting CRISPR technology in the treatment of Huntington’s disease (HD). The study, published in […]

Whole gene replacement possible with new gene-editing tool

Researchers have developed a new tool that could potentially ‘cut’ out faulty genes and ‘paste’ in full-length copies of corrected […]

Novel nanoparticle-based chemoimmunotherapy shrinks tumours in mice

Researchers have developed a nanoparticle-based approach to overcome the immunosuppressive microenvironment of tumours. The study, published in Nature Nanotechnology, detailed […]

Leukaemias ‘re-programme’ themselves using epigenetic regulators

Some leukaemias are able to alter the proteins they express on the cell surface in order to evade cancer treatment. […]

Pomegranate molecule could be the solution to cancer therapy troubles

Researchers from the Georg-Speye-Haus in Germany have identified a new approach to colorectal cancer (CRC) therapy – one based around […]
