A New Potentially Faster-Acting Aspirin

American Crystallographic Association (ACA)

A team of researchers recently discovered a new aspirin polymorph that’s predicted to dissolve faster than current form I aspirin tablets, which would mean faster pain relief after ingestion. Greater dissolving efficiency also means that each tablet would require less of the compound. Chunhua (Tony) Hu, New York University, will present the painstaking story of aspirin IV alongside its structural definition at the 68th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association.

An Enzyme’s Active Site Determines Its Reactivity

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Phospholipases are enzymes that cleave the tail group off of phospholipids, which make up cell membranes. These tails, or free fatty acids, can go on to act as signaling molecules. Lysosomal phospholipase A2, or LPA2, is a phospholipase from the macrophages that protect the lung.

Why Do Kidney Disease and Heart Failure Correlate?

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

People with chronic kidney disease are at unusually high risk of also developing cardiovascular disease; in fact, a patient with non-dialysis kidney disease is more likely to die of heart failure than to develop end-stage kidney failure. However traditional atherosclerosis risk factors contribute less strongly to cardiovascular disease in chronic kidney disease patients than in subjects with intact kidney function.

New MOF Vaccines Could Expand Access to Immunization and Reduce Global Health Care Costs

American Crystallographic Association (ACA)

Many vaccines become ineffective when exposed to room temperature or heat. This challenge can prevent patients from accessing lifesaving immunizations and increase the risk of global pandemics. During the 68th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association, Jeremiah Gassensmith, University of Texas at Dallas, will describe his lab’s work developing metal-organic framework vaccines. This new biocompatible polymer framework “freezes” proteins inside vaccines. The proteins then dissolve when injected in human skin. This innovation could help health care providers transport and administer vaccines in remote areas with unreliable power.

ALPCO Announces 2019 Launch of STELLUX® Chemi Calprotectin ELISA to Aid Gastroenterologists with Differentiating Between IBD and IBS

70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting Press Program

A clinical trial is currently underway to evaluate the predictive values of the STELLUX® Chemiluminescence Calprotectin ELISA for the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), specifically Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). The clinical trial will evaluate the use of the assay to aid in the differentiation of IBD from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) when used in conjunction with other diagnostic testing.

New Cost-Effective Instrument Measures Molecular Dynamics on a Picosecond Timescale

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Studying the photochemistry has shown that ultraviolet radiation can set off harmful chemical reactions in the human body and, alternatively, can provide “photo-protection” by dispersing extra energy. To better understand the dynamics of these photochemical processes, a group of scientists irradiated the RNA base uracil with ultraviolet light and documented its behavior on a picosecond timescale. They discuss their work this week in The Journal of Chemical Physics.
