Anti-Cancer treatment targets activated platelets in tumor microenvironment

A novel chemotherapeutic agent transport system is based on the binding of an antibody-drug conjugate specifically directed to an exterior protein on energizing platelets in the tumor microenvironment. Based on the premise that platelets in the blood are progressively conceding as mediators of tumor swelling and metastasis, investigators at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute…

Genome editing used to bias genetic inheritance in mice

Genomics researchers have demonstrated the feasibility of using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing to bias genetic inheritance in mice used for laboratory studies. Investigators at the University of California, San Diego (USA) based their work in mice on the highly efficient gene drive systems that have recently been developed in insects. These systems leveraged the sequence-targeted DNA…

Novel DNA vaccine prevents AD in mouse model

In the current study, the investigator used a triple-transgenic mouse model that grows plaques and tangles in the brain similar to human AD. Four cohorts of between 15 and 24 mice each were injected in the skin with DNA coding for the Abeta42 peptide. The researchers had already shown that full-length DNA Abeta42 trimer immunization was non-inflammatory and…

Subpopulation of fibroblasts drives breast tumor development

Cancer-associated fibroblasts are especially prominent in breast tumors, but the nature of their function and origin not been uncertain completely. Consequently, recruitment of BM-derived CAFs to primary tumors and metastases resulted in a gradual reduction in PDGFR alpha levels, which was apparently also in human breast tumors, and correlated with worse outcome. The finding that…
