New study shows a second case of successful HIV remission after a bone marrow transplant At least one million people die due to HIV-related causes every year and almost...
Existing biologics such as Canakinumab (monoclonal antibody), Anakinra (monoclonal antibody) and Rilonacept (fusion protein) can be exploited as therapeutics that restrain inflammation in COVID-19 patients. In addition, designer monoclonal antibodies can provide passive immunity by neutralizing the...
A unique immunotherapy-based antibody approach has been developed which targets cancers consisting of solid tumours. Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common cancer in women globally. Ovaries are the...
There are reports of Russia registering world’s first vaccine against novel corona virus while the phase 3 trial of this vaccine is still in progress. Developed jointly by the Gamaleya Research Institute and the Russian Defence Ministry, this vaccine is based on...
Several studies indicate that activation of NLRP3 inflammasome is responsible for acute respiratory distress syndrome and/or acute lung injury (ARDS/ALI) seen in severely ill COVID-19 patients which often result in death due to multiple organ failure. This...
A combination of biological and computational approach to study protein-protein interactions (PPIs) between the viral and the host proteins in order to identify and repurpose drugs for an effective treatment of COVID-19 and possibly other infections as...

Experiments in mice show that injecting amino-bridged nucleic acid-modified antisense oligonucleotides (amNA-ASO) into the brain is a potent and efficient approach to target SNCA protein for treatment of Parkinson’s disease
Twin studies show that expensive and popular probiotics may not be effective in treating ‘stomach flu’ in young children. Gastroenteritis or commonly called as ‘stomach flu’ affects millions of...
Scientists have for the very first time bioengineered a human cornea using 3D printing technique which can be a boost for corneal transplants. Cornea is the transparent dome-shaped outermost...
Research shows that neutralizing antibodies which are induced by vaccination can protect animals from HIV infection. Developing a safe and effective HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) vaccine, despite up to...
What causes severe COVID-19 symptoms? Evidences suggest inborn errors of type I Interferon immunity and autoantibodies against type I Interferon are causal for critical COVID-19. These errors can be identified using whole genome sequencing, thereby leading to...
Researchers have designed a novel HIV drug which can help fight advanced, drug-resistant HIV infection in patients who have no other treatment options. At least 40 million people are...
Scientists have identified a distinct nerve-signalling pathway which could help to recover from sustained pain after an injury. We all know pain – the unpleasant feeling caused by a...
Laboratory tests for diagnosis of COVID-19 currently in practice as advised by the international bodies of experts are reviewed and evaluated. The COVID-19 disease, that originated in Wuhan China,...
