Failed cancer drug could potentially be used to treat fibrotic diseases and scleroderma
September 2019  |  Science News
Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine have improved on this protein and shown that protein called TRAIL selectively kills cells that cause the hardening of skin associated with scleroderma, effectively reversing the condition in mice genetically engineered to mimic the disease.

Proteins Found That Link with Lower Blood Sugar Levels among Obese Type 2 Diabetes Patients
September 2019  |  Science News
Researchers have, for the first time, discovered a family of proteins that are associated with lower blood sugar levels among obese patients with type 2 diabetes. Their study showed that patients with type 2 diabetes who have high levels of the protein, IL-36 cytokines, were found to have lower blood sugar levels, implying that those proteins are associated with better control of the patient’s blood sugar levels and their disease.

Breast Cancer Cells Pushed into Resistant Sleeper Mode by Hormone Therapy
September 2019  |  Science News
Researchers say the findings from studies in laboratory-grown cells could help to identify new strategies for either keeping these dormant cancer cells in perpetual sleeper mode, or potentially kicking them out of dormancy so that they can be killed using existing or new breast cancer therapies.

The seeds of parkinson's disease: Amyloid fibrils that move through brain
September 2019  |  Science News
Researchers have found that the structure of Parkinson's disease-associated protein aggregates can tell us, for the first time, about their movement through the brain. These new findings indicate that Parkinson's disease is a kind of amyloidosis, which has implications for its diagnosis and treatment.
