Scientists report their phage-based inhaled vaccine delivery system elicited a robust antibody response in both mice and non-human primates.
When it comes to developing antibody drugs, Dr Jerome Boyd-Kirkup and his team are not sticking to the classical playbook. Here, he explains how they use systems biology and immuno-engineering to remove the element of luck from biologic drug discovery and development.
By combining machine learning and T-cell engineering researchers were able to develop cell therapies that can selectively and effectively target and destroy solid tumours.
In this journal, find articles discussing antimicrobial resistance, exploring why inhibiting the interaction between SARS-CoV-2 and neuropilin-1 could help combat COVID-19, as well as how CRISPR can be used to enhance productivity in cell line development. Also in this issue, features on engineering new biologic drugs and precision medicine.
Three separate studies have identified nanobodies – a miniature form of antibodies found in camelid species – that can bind to the SARS-CoV-2 Spike (S) protein and neutralise the virus in cells.
The scientists developed a therapy which uses nanobiologics to train the innate immune system to recognise and combat cancer cells.
Scientists who developed the E22W42 DC vaccine suggest it could be safer and more effective than previous anti-amyloid Alzheimer’s therapies.
We have entered a new era of drug discovery where the use of advanced cell models such as multi-cellular co-cultures, stem cells and CRISPR-based screens can lead to the next generation of therapeutics.
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…
Expert view: Increasing the efficiency of biologics development: the secret is precise and reliable stability characterisation of candidate molecules
Biologics are becoming increasingly important for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases, with more biologics receiving regulatory approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) and entering the clinic every year.
Researchers isolated monoclonal antibodies from children who has survived infection by EV-D68, the virus linked to acute flaccid myelitis (AFM). These antibodies protected mice against infection.
