Discovery Points to a New Path Toward a Universal Flu Vaccine

150702_Ravetch_flu.jpg

The conventional flu vaccine protects only against a few specific strains of flu. However, experiments by Rockefeller University researchers and their colleagues show that by including modified antibodies within the vaccine it may be possible to elicit broad protection against many strains simultaneously.

Protein’s Impact on Colorectal Cancer is Dappled

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have discovered a cell signaling pathway that appears to exert some control over initiation and progression of colorectal cancer, the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. A key protein in the pathway also appears to be predictive of cancer survival rates.

New Family of Small RNAs Boosts Cell Proliferation in Cancer

Rather than cellular trash, half of a transfer RNA (tRNA) molecule appears to actively spur cell proliferation in breast and prostate cancers, suggesting a new role for tRNA and a possible target for a new class of therapy.
