Novel Pill-Sized Device Can Monitor Breathing From the Gut

Scientists have developed an ingestible device that can safely monitor vital signs like breathing and heart rate from inside humans. The tool has the potential to provide accessible and convenient care for people at risk of opioid overdose.

Antibody Turbocharges the Immune System Against Cancer

A new study has identified an antibody that can supercharge the immune system, helping to overcome a previously unknown mechanism by which cancer cells prevent phagocytosis.

Molecular Glue Degraders Could Target “Undruggable” Proteins

Cells contain molecular machinery that targets and disposes of unwanted proteins. Scientists would like to hijack this process to control proteins involved in cancer and other diseases, using a type of molecule called a molecular glue degrader.

Cancer Immunotherapy Shows Promise Against Tuberculosis

A promising new cancer therapy also appears extremely potent against one of the world’s most devastating infectious diseases: tuberculosis (TB). Scientists found the therapy dramatically reduces TB growth, even for bacteria that are drug-resistant.

Genomic "Tug of War" Could Influence How Cancer Patients Respond to Decitabine

A genomic tug of war for a gene activator could explain why some cancers respond to decitabine and others don't respond or become resistant over time.

Hormone Therapy May Be Potential Treatment for Liver Fibrosis

Researchers have discovered previously unknown changes in a specific type of liver cells, potentially opening avenues for a new treatment for liver fibrosis, a potentially life-threatening condition.

Biologic “Patch” Activated by Natural Motion Could Help Fix Herniated Discs

The tension-activated repair patch used in animal trials plugs holes in discs in the spine like car tire patches and could prevent further disease progression.
