Dawn A. Firmin, MSc, PhD, explains how MGB has dedicated its focus to the development of a new class of small molecules, with specific antibacterial activity against susceptible and resistant bacteria.
AAV VECTOR MANUFACTURING – Challenges & Opportunities in the Manufacturing of AAV Vectors Used in the Delivery of Gene Therapy Treatments
Daniel C. Smith, PhD, indicates there remains a clear need for improved process productivities, and the need to develop manufacturing processes that can be applied to a wide number of AAV-based viral vector therapeutic candidates.
CELL THERAPY – PLX-R18: Cell Therapy for Treatment of Acute Radiation Syndrome & Bone Marrow Failure Diseases
Racheli Ofir, PhD, and Noa Sher, PhD, report on studies showing that PLX-R18 is a strong candidate for the treatment of H-ARS as well as a plethora of bone marrow failures with similar symptomatology.
Steven Shoemaker, MD, reviews how cavosonstat represents a safe and effective option for patients with CF with at least one copy of the F508del-CFTR mutation; and that when used with correctors and potentiators, improves patient outcomes including lung function.
Harry A. Arena, MBA, President & CEO of TDT, Chris Kim, President & General Counsel, Viral Gene, Inc., and Dr. Scott Waldman, Professor & Chair of Sidney Kimmel Medical College’s Department of Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics at Thomas Jefferson University, discuss the unique characteristics of the vaccine, the patients who will benefit the most, and how a research team captured the attention of investors.
Robert C. Getts, PhD, and Jessica Bowers review how the 3DNA platform is composed entirely of noncoding DNA assembled through the sequential hybridization of single strands of DNA into a network of double-stranded nucleic acid having a controlled architecture, and multiple attachment sites for drug and targeting molecules.
Laurie L. Sullivan and Shalini S. Dewan, BCC Research Analysts, believe with the advent of genetic engineering and recombinant DNA technology, it is now possible to produce a wide variety of human proteins, and that these novel technologies have lifted the market for therapeutic proteins to new heights.
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin recently spoke with several companies that are debunking the theory that access to the latest technological platforms to aid efficient drug discovery and development is limited to Big Pharma, which can more easily justify the costs of creating and operating innovative platforms.
Joseph S. Dillon, PhD, MBA, and Lainie Mulvanny discuss the transformation of CNTs into a unique composition of matter, marking a complete departure from the dirty, tangled micron bundles of CNTs that frustrated medical researchers for years.
Don Paul Kovarcik, MBA, and William Wittbold, MS, indicate that while protein therapeutics have enjoyed considerable commercial success throughout the past 3 decades, there still remain formulation and delivery challenges.
