Vaccine for ovarian, breast cancer shows promise

(CBS) A new vaccine that targets ovarian and breast cancer has shown promise in early studies, giving scientists hope they may be closer to stopping the deadly diseases. PICTURES: 25 breast cancer myths busted Known as PANVAC, the vaccine triggers the immune system to attack tumor cells. “With this vaccine, we can clearly generate immune responses that lead to clinical responses in some patients,” lead...

X-Body BioSciences and Tanabe Research Labs Team U...

X-Body Biosciences entered a partnership with Tanabe Research Laboratories (TRL) to identify therapeutic target epitopes and develop monospecific and/or bispecific antibodies against those targets. TRL is focussed on discovery and development of biologicals for autoimmune diseases. Under terms of the deal, X-Body will be responsible for screening, and TRL will fund the work. TRL has the option to negotiate rights to the...

A New York City-based infectious disease specialist said a new vaccine developed by Spanish scientists, which could turn HIV into minor infection status, is reason to be cautiously optimistic. Dr. Joseph Rahimian said Thursday news of an HIV vaccine is certainly exciting, but questions remain. “An HIV vaccine has been the holy grail for infectious disease doctors for a very long time,” Rahimian said. “ There are a...

Study: Shark Chemical May Protect Humans Against V...

A chemical derived from sharks could help protect humans against viral infections such as hepatitis, American research out Tuesday showed. Scientists found that a chemical called squalamine demonstrated effective antiviral activity against a range of human viruses from yellow fever to hepatitis B, C and D, in both lab and animal experiments. As the chemical has already been used in human clinical trials for the treatment...

Scientists Use Mutant Protein to Inhibit Cancer St...

Blocking a cancer cell protein from binding to three other proteins may provide a new approach to cancer therapy that both reduces populations of breast cancer initiating cells (BCICs) in breast tumors and sensitizes the tumors to existing treatments such as lapatinib or paclitaxel, scientists claim. The technique uses a specially designed lipid-based vector to make cancer cells, including BCICs, express a mutant form...

Insulin May Help Treat Alzheimer’s

Researchers are investigating insulin as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, and in a preliminary study, the results look promising.A study in the journal Archives of Neurology suggests that intranasal insulin – that is, delivered through the nose – may help with cognition and functioning in patients who have both mild and more severe dementia.It’s premature to think of this as a...
