    How novel pathogens may cause the development of colorectal cancer

    Do BMMFs, the novel infectious agents found in dairy products and bovine sera, play a role in the development of colorectal cancer? Scientists led by Harald zur Hausen detected the pathogens in colorectal cancer patients in close proximity to tumors. The researchers show that the BMMFs trigger local chronic inflammation, which can cause mutations via activated oxygen molecules and thus promote cancer development in the long term. BMMFs and inflammatory markers were significantly more frequently detectable in the vicinity of malignant intestinal tumors than in the intestinal tissue of tumor-free individuals.

    Würzburg researchers track down resistance in CAR-T cell therapy

    RNA sequencing reveals cause of relapse in immunotherapy of bone marrow cancer. Multiple myeloma is a malignant cancer of the bone marrow. A great hope in the fight against the so far incurable disease rests on new immunotherapies, in particular on the treatment with CAR-T cells. T cells are white blood cells that serve the immune defense. In their natural state, they are mostly "blind" to tumor cells. However, they can be genetically modified to detect ...

    New Chance for Better Pandemic Response

    Researchers at TU Braunschweig and HZI succeed in developing neutralizing anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies from immune cells of healthy donors. & The research team from the TU Braunschweig and the HZI succeeded in generating the antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in vitro using antibody phage display technology. This was based on the existing HAL9/10 antibody gene library, and for the best-performing antibodies, the researchers additionally mapped the binding sites to the virus and modeled the corresponding molecular interaction structure. ...
