Researchers have been tracking SARS-CoV-2 by sequencing the genomes of virus samples collected from diagnostic testing. They hope that using next generation sequencing (NGS) on SARS-CoV-2 will help to accurately diagnose the novel coronavirus, identify mutations and track its history. This article explores the findings of their latest study and…
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are a class of naturally occurring polysaccharides that play vital roles in cellular functions. GAGs (eg, hyaluronic acid, heparosan, chondroitin, chondroitin sulfate, heparan sulfate and heparin) have also been utilised in biopharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries. Animal-sourced GAGs can contain process impurities and contaminants, which may result in adverse…
According to a new study, blood clots in patients with severe COVID-19 are caused by an autoimmune antibody that circulates in the blood and attacks cells.
Exploring how the Ebola virus develops remdesivir resistance has highlighted a mutation that could allow SARS-CoV-2 to do the same.
Scientists have demonstrated that AR-12 can inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication and are working to initiate clinical trials evaluating the antiviral drug.
There are currently no licenced pharmaceuticals to treat cocaine addiction. To overcome this issue, US researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have been exploring how cocaine alters transcription in the nucleus accumbens, a region of the brain implicated in compulsive drug use. Here, Hannah Balfour discusses with Dr…
As the global COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing, staying abreast with the latest news can be challenging. In this article, Sheraz Gul provides an overview of the broad range of potential treatments in development and discusses how the regulatory landscape can shift at any time.
In 2019, the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus sparked a global pandemic that is likely to continue into 2021. Effective therapeutics that treat the symptoms of the disease and prevent or treat the underlying viral infection are critically required. To meet this need, the global biopharmaceutical industry is evaluating over 50 monoclonal antibody…
According to a new report, artificial intelligence (AI) is vital for the rapid identification of drugs that can be repurposed to combat COVID-19.
Researchers found breast cancer cells reprogrammed natural killer T cells, altering gene expression and receptor expression so they help cancerous metastases spread.
The vitamin K-based drug has a unique structure which researchers believe makes it effective in controlling even medication-resistant seizures.
To overcome the issues of current analgesics, researchers reveal a new class of non-narcotic pipeline drugs based on acetaminophen.
Two molecules combined into a new substance to treat type 2 diabetes lowered blood sugar in shrew models without causing nausea, vomiting and weight loss.
