A Tiny Change in Jab Strategy Might Reduce COVID-19 Vaccine Fatigue, Mouse Study Finds

First there’s weakness and throbbing in the arm muscles that take on the immune-teaching chemicals. Then the fatigue and aches spread until your whole body is complaining. It turns out those of us who experience this reaction to the COVID-19 vaccines have markers in our blood that indicate a more active immune response, but a … Read more

New Strategy Discovered To Potentially Reduce Fatigue After COVID-19 Vaccination

According to a new study, switching the administration of mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines from intramuscular to subcutaneous injection could ease adverse post-vaccination effects, such as fatigue. Mouse experiments suggest a switch from intramuscular to subcutaneous injection may ease fatigue. Currently, mRNA-based[{” attribute=””>COVID-19 vaccines are injected deep into the muscles, which is called intramuscular injection. An alternative … Read more

UCLA study finds strategy to degrade a key cancer cell-surface protein to invigorate immune attack on tumors – BIOENGINEER.ORG

LOS ANGELES – One powerful way cancer cells defend against tumor-killing immune cells is to load up their cell surface with a protein known as PD-L1. Now a team of UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers led by Roger S. Lo, MD, PhD, has identified a method to degrade tumor cell-surface PD-L1, thereby making tumors … Read more

Researchers from the CiQUS of the USC have just published an article that opens up a new immunotherapeutic path against cancer. The international study, led by the Center’s PI Eddy Sotelo and Andreas Lundqvist from Karolinska Institutet (link is external) in Sweden, also involves researchers from CiMUS and the USC (link is external) Faculty of … Read more

Combining the approaches may be a powerful anti-cancer strategy — ScienceDaily

Tumors send out signals that impair normal blood flow, which makes them hard to treat with every type of cancer treatment, including radiation and chemo-, targeted and immunotherapy. Impaired blood supply creates an environment low in oxygen levels – hypoxia – that causes the tumors to take on aggressive characteristics and become immuno-suppressed. To address … Read more

Researchers Surprised by Unusually Fast Beaked Whale’s Deep-Sea Hunting Strategy

Sowerby’s beaked whale. Credit: NOAA Fisheries An international team of biologists has successfully used biologists to reveal insights into the lifestyle and hunting behavior of the little-known species Sowerby’s beaked whale. The team’s first results show that these whales (which resemble dolphins) have a surprisingly different, much faster lifestyle than related species. The research was … Read more

Strategy overcomes EZH2 inhibitor resistance in SMARCB1 mutated cancer – BIOENGINEER.ORG

(Memphis, Tenn. — May 9, 2022) EZH2 protein inhibitors are effective against cancers SMARCB1 mutations such as rhabdoid tumors in children. However, these drugs are subject to treatment resistance. Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have identified a novel drug target that may help overcome resistance to EZH2 inhibitors. A paper on the work … Read more
