Custom built molecule shows promise as anti-cancer therapy
Custom built molecule shows promise as anti-cancer therapy
Scientists at the University of Bath funded by Cancer Research UK have custom-built a molecule which stops breast cancer cells from multiplying in laboratory trials, and hope it will eventually lead to a treatment for the disease. But perhaps even more importantly the method they used to create the molecule has potential to be applied to develop new treatments for a wide range of cancers and other diseases.

Computer-designed antibodies target toxins associated with Alzheimer's disease
Computer-designed antibodies target toxins associated with Alzheimer’s disease
Researchers at the University of Cambridge have designed antibodies that target the protein deposits in the brain associated with Alzheimer's disease, and stop their production.† If we can find better and cheaper ways of producing antibodies, we would increase the chances of finding treatments for patients Michele Vendruscolo The researchers used computer-based methods to develop antibodies - the star players of the body's natural defence system - to target the deposits of misfolded proteins which are a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease.

Underprivileged teenagers more likely to give up their university ambitions
Early intervention to maintain and raise expectations could increase the number of teenagers from less privileged backgrounds entering higher education, finds a new study by the UCL Institute of Education (IOE). The research, published in the Oxford Review of Education, analysed how young people's expectations of applying to university change between the ages of 14 and 17, finding that those from less advantaged backgrounds were more likely to stop, and less likely to start or consider applying, than their more advantaged peers.

Responses to terror attacks helping to fuel Islamophobia
The recent string of terrorist attacks across Europe has led to a spike in Islamophobic acts, from daily harassment to the horrific event this week in Finsbury Park. Yet while extreme acts of Islamophobia are generally denounced by political actors and the media, a new study suggests that more insidious forms of Islamophobia, couched in liberal terms, are helping normalise such forms of racism in society.

Family history and location of genetic fault affect risk for carriers of key breast and ovarian cancer genes
A large scale study of women carrying faults in important cancer genes should enable doctors to provide better advice and counselling for treatments and lifestyle changes aimed at reducing this risk. The results show clearly... that the cancer risks for women with faults in BRCA1 and BRCA2 depend both on the precise mutation and the woman's family cancer history Doug Easton Cancer is caused by a combination of inherited genetic faults and environmental factors.
