Targeting the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway in prostate cancer development and progression


Dr Claudio Festuccia (University of L'Aquila, Italy) discusses experimental and clinical data on the pharmacological inhibition of the Akt/mTOR pathways. These pathways play a key role in the modulation of cellular proliferation, tumor growth and survival through phosphorylation of different ...


Investigating plasma levels as a biomarker for Alzheimer's disease


A Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA) paper presents the first detailed study of the relationship between plasma levels of two amyloid beta peptides (Aβ1-40 and Aβ1-42), brain volumetrics (measures studying the size of brain, which shrinks with Alzheimer's disease) and cognitive performance ...


Drug-loaded nanocarriers in tumor targeted drug delivery


Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. It is a leading cause of death and the burden is expected to grow worldwide due to the growth and aging of the population, mainly in less developed countries, in which about 82% of the world's ...


Two-way clustering method for QSAR modeling of diverse set of chemicals


Toxicologists use a large number of tests to assess potential toxicity of chemicals to human and ecological health, a thorough analysis of one chemical requiring $2 to 4 million and a few years of time. One important toxicological property of chemicals is mutagenicity. Both drugs and ...
