Bacteria engineered as Trojan horse for cancer immunotherapy
July 2019  |  Science News
Researchers have engineered a strain of non-pathogenic bacteria that can colonize solid tumors in mice and safely deliver potent immunotherapies, acting as a Trojan Horse that treats tumors from within. The therapy led not only to complete tumor regression in a mouse model of lymphoma, but also significant control of distant, uninjected tumor lesions.

Obesity Takes the Brakes Off Neurological Mechanism that Stops Overeating
June 2019  |  Science News
Scientist reported studies in mice that suggest obesity may dampen the activity of a specific population of neurons in a region of brain that is associated with controlling eating behavior, and so take the brakes off food intake to further fuel pathological eating and obesity.

Parkinson's Could Begin in the Gut and Travel Via the Vagus Nerve
June 2019  |  Science News
Researchers say they have found additional evidence that Parkinson's disease originates among cells in the gut and travels up the body's neurons to the brain. The study can offer more accurate model in which to test treatments that could prevent or halt Parkinson's disease progression.

HDAC Inhibitor Found to Sensitize Cancers to Anti-PD1 Therapy
June 2019  |  Science News
Researchers highlight the immunological effects of HDACi on antitumor responses and suggests that optimal treatment efficacy requires personalized design and rational combination based on prognostic biomarkers (e.g., MHCs) and the individual profiles of HDACi.
