Fluorescent probes offer fuller view of drug delivery in cells

Cornell University

Selecting the most effective molecules for drug delivery is often a trial-and-error process, but Cornell engineers are providing some precision thanks to a technique that reveals the performance of those molecules inside living cells.

Expert Panel: Cancer Treatment Plans Should Include Tailored Exercise Prescriptions

American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)

New guidance from exercise oncology experts recommend systematic use of an “exercise prescription” by health care workers and fitness professionals in designing and delivering exercise programs that aim to lower the risk of developing certain cancers and best meet the needs, preferences and abilities of people with cancer. 17 organizations reviewed the latest scientific evidence and offer recommendations about the benefits of exercise for prevention, treatment, recovery and improved survival.

Newswise: Failed Cancer Drug Looks Promising For Scleroderma And Other Fibrotic Conditions

Failed Cancer Drug Looks Promising For Scleroderma And Other Fibrotic Conditions

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Sixteen years ago, a research group at Mayo Medical School published results showing that a protein called TRAIL can kill cells that cause liver fibrosis but no one seemed to follow up on these findings. Now, researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine have improved on this protein and shown that it selectively kills cells that cause the hardening of skin associated with scleroderma, effectively reversing the condition in mice genetically engineered to mimic the disease. A report on these results was published earlier this year in Nature Communications.
