COVID-19 samples can be collected using a simple breath test or throat and nose swabs
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev's Prof. Gabby Sarusi has developed and is now validating a test that identifies carriers of the COVID-19 virus in less than a minute with greater than 90% accuracy and at a dramatically lower price than any other method available. Clinical trials in conjunction ...
Chemiluminescence probes for the rapid and sensitive detection of salmonella and listeria
Salmonella and listeria are among the most widely distributed and deadliest causes of foodborne infections. Their rapid and reliable detection on food and industrial food processing equipment is very important. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists have introduced a new, ultrasensitive, ...
Engineered heart completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of the patient
In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D vascularised engineered heart using a patient's own cells and biological materials. Until now, scientists in regenerative medicine -- a field positioned at the crossroads of biology and technology ...
High level of specific protein in tumors indicates prognosis
Our DNA is under constant attack. The delicate molecule that contains our genetic information is extremely vulnerable to everything from environmental agents, such as radiation, to the chemicals in the air we breathe and the food we eat. Genome instability can lead to genetic disorders, chronic ...
Helping the immune system clear away old cells in aging mice helped restore youthful characteristics
If only we could keep our bodies young, healthy and energetic, even as we attain the wisdom of our years. New research at the Weizmann Institute of Science suggests this dream could be at least partly obtainable in the future. The results of this research, led by Prof. Valery Krizhanovsky and Dr. ...
Effective passage for therapies treating cancer and other diseases
Delivering an effective therapeutic payload to specific target cells with few adverse effects is considered by many to be the holy grail of medical research. A new Tel Aviv University study explores a biological approach to directing nanocarriers loaded with protein "game changers" to specific ...
Involvement of adipocytes in nivolumab response in ipilimumab resistant melanoma patients
New findings presented by CytoReason reveals possible new cellular players in the tumor microenvironment that could impact the treatment process for the most in-need patients - those who have already failed to respond to ipilimumab (anti-CTLA4) immunotherapy. Once validated, the findings could ...
Boosting the immune system could offer a radical new way to treat Alzheimer’s disease, according to Dr Michal Schwartz from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. Experiments in mice have shown that targeting immune cells arrested the damage to the brain and helped preserve cognition. For ...
New data represents the largest ever analysis of immune cell signaling research, mapping more than 3,000 previously unlisted cellular interactions, and yielding the first ever immune-centric modular classification of diseases. These data serve to rewrite the reference book on immune-focused ...
BASF and Evogene Ltd. announced a new collaboration focusing on the development of novel insecticides based on new binding areas (Site-of-Action or ‘SoA’) on key insecticidal target proteins. The parties also announced that the collaboration achieved its first project milestone, with the joint ...
