Increasing the immune system’s appetite for cancer protectors

A two-arm molecule can effectively deplete cancer-protecting cells inside tumors, allowing the immune system to fight off tumors without becoming overactive. The finding, published online in Science Translational Medicine, could lead to new types of cancer immunotherapies. “By effectively removing these immune-suppressive cells inside tumors instead of in the whole […]

A cost-effective anti-angiogenic drug to treat lung cancer is finally here

New research shows that the QL1101, structurally similar to an existing cancer drug, is a safe and effective alternative for lung cancer treatment. In 2018, lung cancer caused 1.8 million cancer deaths worldwide. It is the most common type of cancer, with non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) accounting for 85% […]

The Immune System Should be a High Priority Target in the Development of Rejuvenation Therapies

The immune system has many roles. It doesn't just destroy invading pathogens, but also hunts and kills potentially harmful cells, such as those that have become senescent or potentially cancerous. Further, immune cells are intricately involved in the processes of tissue maintenance. Regeneration from injury is a complicated dance of […]

Prozac changes fat composition of the monkey brain

Skoltech researchers and their colleagues from Russia, Germany, and the U.S. have found Prozac to reduce lipid concentrations in juvenile macaques who received the antidepressant for two years, compared to a control group of untreated animals. While none of the monkeys in the study were depressed, the findings still offer a plausible biochemical […]
