New technique could enable production of generic CAR T cells at scale
August 4, 2022 -- A Boston Children’s Hospital lab has developed a new method that could make chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy more widely available using induced pluripotent stem cells to develop mature immune cells. Read More
Gene therapy shows promise in treating ALS in rodent models
August 2, 2022 -- A gene therapy, patented through the University of California, San Diego and the Department of Veterans Affairs, and licensed to Eikonoklastes Therapeutics, measurably delayed disease onset in humanized mouse and rat models of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

New technique visualizes cells less than 10 nm
August 3, 2022 -- A new photoswitching fingerprint analysis enables the optical imaging of dynamic interactions with other molecules in the cell. The analysis reliably allows for structural optical resolution in cells in the sub-10 nm range. Read More
Researchers discover what drives T cells to protect the gut
August 1, 2022 -- New research finds the barrier cells that line the intestines send messages to the patrolling T cells that reside there by expressing the HVEM protein. That signaling prompts T cells to survive longer and move more to stop potential infections. Read More
Video from AACC: AACC president on Theranos, VALID Act
August 1, 2022 -- Dr. Stephen Master, president of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, provided his thoughts about the main highlights of the 2022 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo held this week in Chicago. Read More
New drug heals nervous system damage from stroke
August 1, 2022 -- A new drug can repair nervous system damage caused by a stroke, at least in animal studies. In a preclinical study, researchers from the University of Cincinnati and Case Western Reserve University have found that one drug resulted in significant improvement in motor function, sensory function, spatial learning, and memory.

Video from AACC: PerkinElmer on diagnostics, acquisitions
August 2, 2022 -- Greg Stock, general manager of PerkinElmer’s Euroimmun business, discussed products and technologies on display at AACC 2022, as well as the integration of acquired companies such as Oxford Immunotec. Read More
Genes explain the effects of psychedelic drugs
July 28, 2022 -- Not everyone has the same response to psychedelic drugs and North Carolina researchers have figured out why -- seven genetic variants of one serotonin receptor greatly impact a certain serotonin receptor’s structure and function. Read More
Thymus uses RNA molecules to generate list of friendly proteins that T cells should not attack
August 2, 2022 -- Research from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has identified the RNA molecules used by the human thymus organ to generate a list of friendly proteins that T cells should not attack, a discovery which may lead to improved immunotherapies and treatments for autoimmune disorders and cancer. Read More
Mice deficient in DCIR are resilient against colitis, colonic tumor growth
August 2, 2022 -- Using mice models, researchers from Japan and China have shown that dendritic cell immunoreceptor (DCIR) protein deficiency is resistant to colonic tumors induced by dextran sodium sulfate and azoxymethane, while identifying an antibody that reduces colitis severity and colonic tumor growth. Read More
Seer debuts new proteomic-mapping software
August 3, 2022 -- Seer has launched a new Proteogenomics Workflow that integrates deep proteomics with genomics and is powered by the Proteograph Analysis Suite 2.0. Read More
