Molecule that puts brakes on inflammation identified Sep 29, 3:07 pm
Washington, September 29 (ANI): Our immune systems detect and eradicate invading pathogens and particles, but sometimes the immune response goes overboard, triggering autoimmune diseases like lupus, asthma or inflammatory bowel disease.
Potent first-strike influenza drug target identified Aug 4, 11:40 am
Washington, August 4 (ANI): In a new study, researchers have shown how compounds blocking an enzyme universal to all influenza viruses may allow development of new antiviral drugs that also avoid the problem of drug resistance.
London, June 11 (ANI): An international team of scientists has for the first time uncovered the structure of the protective protein coat, which surrounds many bacteria like a miniature suit of armour.
Pathogens' protein structures offer blueprint for new drugs Jun 6, 4:17 pm
Washington, June 6 (ANI): Scientists say that they have reached a significant milestone by determining 1,000 protein structures from infectious disease organisms.
