A research group at Washington University School of Medicine has released animal data showing restriction of tumor growth with a novel mRNA therapeutic delivered in nanoparticles based on Altamira Therapeutics Ltd.’s Semaphore delivery platform.
A combination of bioengineering techniques on normal cell binding proteins could be the method of the future for selective cell binding. Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) have created a synthetic glue based on the expression of membrane receptors to establish the desired connection between cells. The results may be applied in different fields of cell biology or biomedicine, such as regeneration and wound repair, including the nervous system, or cancer.
The design of genetically modified exosomes that combine multiple targets killed cancer cells and conferred immunity against them. Scientists at the University of Southern California (USC) applied bioengineering techniques to introduce up to four antitumor functions in the same type of extracellular vesicles and destroy EGFR-positive triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) tumor cells.
