Dynamic Microenvironments: Finding the right cancer therapy

With so many promising cancer therapies emerging from research labs, a key challenge for biomedical researchers is to develop tools that accurately predict treatment efficacy against a patient’s specific cancer, thereby avoiding subjecting the patient to a trial and error process to find the best drug.

Upcoming Developments in Precision Medicine

Future of immunotherapies

Immunotherapies are on the fast growth trajectory which will be moderated based on responder groups, toxicity and efficacy results and high costs and increasingly used in combination therapies. The overall immune oncology checkpoint inhibitor market was over $2.0 billion and is set to grow to $14 billion by 2018.

Cross-Cultural Research into Microbiome Therapeutics for Cancer

While microbiome therapeutics to support healthy gut function have garnered the lion’s share of attention, exciting approaches to oncology and anti-inflammatory therapeutics presage a new golden age for drug development, akin to the early commercialisation of chemically synthesised antibiotics from soil biofilms in the mid-20th century.

Aflatoxin Binding by Probiotic Bacteria

The term ‘probiotic’ comes from the Greek words ‘προ’ and ‘βιοτος’, which mean ‘for life’. In 1953, the ‘probiotic’ term was introduced by Kollath as organic and inorganic supplements necessary to restore health to patients suffering a form of malnutrition resulting from eating too much highly refined food (Hamilton-Miller et al., 2003).

Synthetic Biology and Cancer Treatment: Bottlenecks to Translation

Karmella Haynes, at the Arizona State University, is one of the first synthetic biologists to engineer chromatin. It is a development that could ultimately treat diseases like cancer, through enabling large-scale changes in gene expression.
