New treatment against transplantation complications tested

A class of biotechnology drugs called monoclonal antibodies is now being tested in clinical studies to treat an unmet medical need post-transplantation, called delayed graft function

Network of experts join forces to fight rare disease

Support from a network of leading researchers across Europe specialised in a rare auto-immune disease with unmet medical needs could help test several novel treatments

Designing ultra-sensitive biosensors for early personalised diagnostics

A new type of high-sensitivity and low-cost sensors, called plasmonic biosensors, could ultimately become a key asset in personalised medicine by helping to diagnose diseases at an early stage 

Renewed hope for gene therapy in rare disease

New virus serotypes are safely used as ‘DNA transporters’ to successfully deliver genes to deficient cells. 

Secrets of youth, based on prevention

Metabolites found in our blood are linked to ageing and can signpost the risk of developing age-related diseases. This may help avoid such risks and reduce the rate at which we age biologically.

Picking the right virus candidate for gene therapy

A promising new approach to gene therapy for neurodegenerative diseases makes use of an unexpected virus as the agent of delivery. 

Healing bone defects using regenerative medicine

Regenerating bones based on a mixture of tissue engineering approaches is coming of age.

Towards new cancer therapies

The genetics of fruit flies helps researchers to identify new targets for cancer therapy and to develop more individualised treatments.

Fighting resistance to antimalarial drug

Next-generation antimalarial drugs are much needed to address resistance issues to current treatments. New strategies may work by interfering with the biology of the parasite causing the disease. 

Physical work, not the main cause of intervertebral disc degeneration

Intervertebral disc degeneration can result in back pain. Now a team of scientists is debunking the myth that excessive physical work is the main culprit, and is looking at other causes.
