Hesham Refaat et al. identified the potential of propolis liposomes as a promising treatment approach against COVID-19. [Read the Full Post]

A Preclinical Model for Studying Herpes Simplex Virus Infection

0 views | Nov 06 2020

Poojabahen Tajpara et al. discovered that both drugs had a comparable efficacy for inhibiting HSV-1 replication, suggesting that pritelivir could be an alternative therapeutic agent for patients infected with acyclovir-resistant strains. [Read the Full Post]

Identification of antiviral compounds against equid herpesvirus-1 using real-time cell assay screening: Efficacy of decitabine and valganciclovir alone or in combination

9 views | Nov 05 2020

Côme Thieulent et al. showed that deoxycytidine reverts the antiviral effect of decitabine, thus supporting some competition at the level of nucleoside phosphorylation by deoxycytidine kinase and/or DNA synthesis. [Read the Full Post]

A study of human leukocyte antigen-haploidentical hematopoietic stem cells transplantation combined with allogenic mesenchymal stem cell infusion for treatment of severe aplastic anemia in pediatric and adolescent patients

37 views | Sep 29 2020

Li Ding et al. suggested that cotransplantation of HLA-haploidentical HSC and allogenic mesenchymal stem cell might provide an effective and safe treatment for children and adolescents with SAA who lacked matched donors. [Read the Full Post]

CTELS: A Cell-Free System for the Analysis of Translation Termination Rate

30 views | Sep 28 2020

Kseniya A Lashkevich et al. revealed a transient stalling event at a "leaky" stop codon context, which likely defined the basis of nonsense suppression. [Read the Full Post]

The rRNA synthesis inhibitor CX-5461 may induce autophagy that inhibits anticancer drug-induced cell damage to leukemia cells

30 views | Aug 18 2020

Shuichiro Okamoto et al. showed the autophagy which might be induced by CX-5461 was the second type. [Read the Full Post]

Gemcitabine combined with cisplatin vs. taxane, cisplatin, and fluorouracil in the treatment of locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma: a retrospective case-control study

81 views | Aug 04 2020

Y-M Huang et al. showed that the clinical efficacy of the GP regimen combined with CCRT for the treatment of locoregionally advanced NPC might be better than that of the TPF regimen. [Read the Full Post]

Efficacy of pritelivir and acyclovir in the treatment of herpes simplex virus infections in a mouse model of herpes simplex encephalitis

128 views | Jan 13 2020

Quenelle DC et al. concluded pritelivir has potent and resistance-breaking antiviral efficacy with potential for the treatment of potentially life-threatening HSV type 1 and 2 infections, including herpes simplex encephalitis. [Read the Full Post]

Fludarabine-PET in a murine model of multiple myeloma

306 views | Dec 08 2019

Hovhannisyan N et al. suggested that [18F]fludarabine-PET might represent an alternative and perhaps more specific modality for MM imaging when compared to [18F]FDG. Nevertheless, more investigations are required to extend this conclusion to humans. [Read the Full Post]

Inhibitory Activities of Blasticidin S Derivatives on Aflatoxin Production by Aspergillus Flavus

0 views | Dec 06 2019

Yoshinari T et al. indicated that the inhibitory activity of BcS against aflatoxin production was enhanced by esterification of its carboxyl group and that the carboxymethyl ester derivative might be more suitable for practical use than BcS because of the specificity of the carboxymethyl ester derivative, which inhibited aflatoxin production more than BcS.
