As promising as a drug candidate may be, the unfortunate truth is that not all of them end up performing as hoped – but that doesn't mean they're completely useless. Researchers at Oxford University have managed to give second life to an experimental cancer drug known as tasquinimod, which has now shown promise in preventing Parkinson's...

Even our ancient ancestors had medicines to turn to when they felt under the weather. The Egyptians, for example, would strip the leaves and bark from willow trees to ease their aching joints. Drawing on nature to cure ailments stretches back further than this, but with our destruction of the environment continuing apace some are concerned how much of it we'll have to depend on in the futu
New research has found that a novel drug cocktail almost doubled the lifespan of a microscopic worm, the largest drug-induced lifespan extension in an animal ever reported. The study suggests that pharmacological intervention to help us live longer could be a realistic proposition...

Current cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy are designed to kill tumors, but they often take down healthy cells as well. An emerging technique could provide a more targeted approach, stopping tumorous cells from proliferating and effectively putting the cance
Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) have developed a new targeted treatment for cancer. Chemotherapy drugs are wrapped in "nano-bubbles" called liposomes, which are then injected into the desired part of the body and made to release their payload on demand, by applying X-ray radiation...

With the current opioid crisis in the US, finding new non-addictive painkillers and other relief methods is key. An experimental, non-opioid drug known as EMA401 is showing promise, and now researchers at Washington University in St Louis have found that it works by targeting a different part of the body, outside of the nervous system...

Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) is one of the most commonly associated causes of age-related dementia and stroke. New research, led by the University of Edinburgh, may have finally uncovered the mechanism by which SVD causes brain cell damage, as well as a potential treatment to prevent the damage, and possibly even reverse it...

A fascinating study by a team of researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian has found that the ketogenic diet may improve the efficacy of a new class of cancer drug that has been inexplicably showing disappointing results in early human clinical trials... Continue Reading How the ketogenic diet could improve efficacy of a new
