Antibodies reverse type 1 diabetes in new immunotherapy animal study

Antibodies reverse type 1 diabetes in new immunotherapy animal study

ScienceDaily (July 6, 2012) — Scientists at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine have used injections of antibodies to rapidly reverse the onset of Type I diabetes in mice genetically bred to develop the disease. Moreover, just two injections maintained disease remission indefinitely without harming the immune system. Continue reading

Scientists create new approach to destroy disease-associated RNAs in cells

Dec. 20, 2012 — Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have developed a new approach to alter the function of RNA in living cells by designing molecules that recognize and disable RNA targets. As a proof of principle, in the new study the team designed a molecule that disabled the RNA causing myotonic dystrophy Continue reading
