Sanford Burnham Prebys expands collaboration with Lilly to investigate immunological therapies

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute today announced a three-year extension to its existing collaboration with Eli Lilly and Company (Lilly) to discover and develop immunological therapies. The goals of the agreement are to advance ongoing projects—including a Phase 1 clinical trial of an immune therapy that arose from the research collaboration—and to expand the previous scope to include omics-based target identification studies.

Study in Mice Suggests Possible Treatment Approach for Multiple Sclerosis in Humans

University of Utah Health

The ideal treatment for any autoimmune disease such as multiple sclerosis (MS) would preserve the immune system’s ability to protect the body. In July, a team of researchers published a study in The Journal of Neuroinflammation reporting progress toward this goal. After ‘knocking out’ a transcription factor called Oct1, investigators saw a significant reduction in symptoms in mice with MS-like disease. More importantly, the mice preserved most of their ability to clear viral infections.

Nanotechnology treatment shows promise against multiple sclerosis

University of California, Irvine

Irvine, Calif., June 5, 2019 — A nanotechnology treatment derived from bone marrow stem cells has reversed multiple sclerosis symptoms in mice and could eventually be used to help humans, according to a new study led by University of California, Irvine researchers.  “Until now, stem cell therapies for autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases have produced mixed results in clinical trials, partly because we don’t know how the treatments work,” said corresponding author Weian Zhao, an associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences and biomedical engineering who is affiliated with the Sue & Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center.

Newfound autoimmune syndrome causes muscle pain, weakness

Washington University in St. Louis

A previously unknown autoimmune muscle disease involving sudden onset of debilitating muscle pain and weakness has been identified by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The syndrome easily could be mistaken for other muscle diseases that require different treatment, so the findings are expected to help physicians treat patients appropriately, the researchers said.
