MIT team finds limitations of AlphaFold’s AI protein structures in drug discovery
Advances in the modeling of protein-ligand interactions are needed to realize the potential of the artificial intelligence (AI) AlphaFold database of protein structure predictions in drug discovery, according to a new paper from researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Harvard’s Wyss Institute spins out protein detection technology to create Spear Bio
The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has licensed technology for detecting proteins in small patient samples to a newly formed startup.
Lupus pill moves to clinical trial in humans after success in mice
Scientists at this week’s fall meeting of the American Chemical Society report they have begun phase II clinical trials of an oral pill containing a compound that in mice, not only prevented lupus-like symptoms, but also reversed signs of organ damage caused by the disease and prevented death.
Biomolecular condensates could transform drug discovery, says Dewpoint Therapeutics
Boston-based biotech company Dewpoint Therapeutics contends there are untapped opportunities for targeting biomolecular condensates to develop therapeutic agents for a wide array of diseases, potentially transforming the drug discovery process.
Novel drug targets cancer cells in mice through lymphatic system, shows therapeutic efficacy
A novel kinase inhibitor, absorbed through the gut’s lymphatic system rather than blood vessels, significantly reduced disease, limited toxicity, and prolonged survival in mice with myelofibrosis, according to a University of Michigan study.
Antiviral-antibody combination improves influenza outcomes in mice
Researchers at McMaster University found in a mouse study that combining a class of well-known antiviral drugs and neutralizing antibodies was more effective than either approach alone, which they contend could be used to treat seasonal influenza and help prevent the next flu pandemic.
Synthesis breakthrough opens door to development of natural product as cancer therapy
Princeton University scientists have halved the number of steps needed to synthesize pleurotin, setting the stage for work to realize the anticancer and antibiotic potential of the molecule.
Repurposed drug shows promise in animal studies as potential therapy for ALS
A drug used to treat enlarged prostates and high blood pressure could help to slow the progression of motor neuron disease, which is also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disorder.
Nanoparticles protect mice from blood vessel rupture, offers potential therapy for abdominal aortic aneurysms in humans
Administration of small interfering RNA nanoparticles has protected mice from sudden death due to the rupture of a major blood vessel in the abdomen, setting the stage for research that could ultimately enable treatment for people at risk of life-threatening abdominal aortic aneurysm.
New molecular editing strategy empowers chemists to create novel drug candidates
A new unified late-stage “molecular editing” strategy to directly modify bicyclic aza-arenes could enable chemists to synthesize a more diverse range of drug candidates.
