Gene therapy - personalized medicine

Collaboration between Israeli researchers, Chinese students and artificial intelligence reveals new wrinkles between the folds of orphan proteins and updates chapters in the theory of evolution
Prof. Rachela Popobzer from the Faculty of Engineering and the Institute for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials at Bar Ilan University won a grant of 150 euros, for research aimed at making drug treatment more efficient and targeted
A new competition to stop aging with prizes of 101 million dollars
The development of the disease in celiac patients is probably related to sensitivity to the protein common in industrialized dairy products. The findings pave the way for early detection of the disease and its prevention
Researchers examined DNA samples of 1,200 deaf Israeli-Jews, in order to understand the damage caused to the structure of the proteins in the hearing system
Researchers are trying to find treatments adapted to protein networks that characterize cancer tumors
Tissue engineering offers a solution for the treatment of disc herniations: an implant that combines synthetic hydrogel and living cartilage cells
Today, patients needing a heart transplant have to join a waiting list, and hearts become available when someone else dies. Because there are not enough hearts, only critically ill patients are put on the waiting list
Significant progress towards personalized medicine in the field of psychiatry, with the help of a helmet that induces electromagnetic stimulation of the brain.
A study of human cancer tissues grown in mice has suggested that a large group of lung cancer patients may be successfully treated with a drug currently approved for other cancers
Thanks to the nanoparticle system they developed - the cancer cell stops dividing and dies
This is the first time that researchers succeed in developing personalized tools for infectious diseases, which until now have only been developed for specific diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's
The information that will be collected in the project will help in locating risk factors for diseases, which cannot be detected by other research methods
The winners are: Chuan Ha, University of Chicago, USA, Jeffrey Kelly, Scripps Research Institute, USA, Hiroaki Shuga, University of Tokyo, Japan
Maged Biochip in which researchers from Bar Ilan develop biological chips for continuous monitoring of a large group of biological markers for human diseases
The goal: identifying genes that can predict healthy aging and help prevent diseases
In this new study, the international team described how they created a DNA repair agent to genetically correct defective podocin, a common genetic cause of steroid-resistant hereditary kidney disease (SRNS).
Mice that received a gene encoding a telomere-producing enzyme extended their lifespan by forty percent, compared to a control group. Treatment with another gene, one that codes for the follistatin protein, resulted in a thirty-six percent extension of their lifespan
Identifying the mobility of atoms in biological and chemical systems may help in deciphering the structure of the envelope that protects the genetic material of certain viruses, something that may, in the future, allow harming their reproduction
The researchers showed that this is a result of the defect in the genes encoding the BRCA1 and BRCA2 proteins. These proteins are responsible for repairing double-strand breaks and returning the DNA to its original state, and defects in them lead to the development of various types of cancer, including breast and ovarian cancer
A technology based on artificial intelligence may quickly and simply decode genetic and molecular information about cancer tumors. On the horizon: personalized medicine for cancer patients
The nanomedicine that attacks cancer twice: both improves the effectiveness of chemotherapy and strengthens the immune system
Vaccine technology based on DNA and RNA has already been in development for about thirty years, it happened to be ready to help develop a vaccine for Corona, but its potential is much higher, says a British researcher
The information that can promote personalized cancer medicine - can we find it in international databases?
A study examined through machine learning thousands of medical files, and made it possible to predict risk factors for the development of severe morbidity and mortality when infected with a resistant bacteria or fungus
