Developed a promising new therapy against one of the most aggressive breast cancers

Researchers from the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) have developed a new and hopeful therapy against one of the most aggressive breast cancers. The therapy consists of combining an antibody against the HER3 protein with a highly cytotoxic drug, creating a new drug called EV20/MMAF. As demonstrated in the study published in the journal EMBO Molecular Medicine, the treatment has proven its efficacy in animals and should now be subjected to clinical trials. HER2+ breast cancer is very aggressive and accounts for 20% of all breast cancer cases.

University project makes Covid-19 information available in different languages

Providing factual, accessible, and unbiased interpretations of insights emerging from COVID-19 research is critical.  To help contribute to this Edinburgh Infectious Diseases published summaries of the talks at the Edinburgh Coronavirus Workshop at the end of March.

However, as with so much of the information that is available about Covid-19, these summaries are in English. To make this information much more accessible for people whose first language is not English, the Edinburgh Infectious Diseases community came together to translate these summaries into twenty one different languages from around the world.  

 CNB-CSIC Tool Integrates Worldwide Information on the Atomic Structure of the Coronavirus

Researchers of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) at the National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC) have made available to the scientific community a computer tool that tracks databases and pooles multiple sources of information on the SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus, which caused the Covid-19 pandemic. This new analysis tool, called 3DBionotes-Covid, integrates all this information into a three-dimensional interactive environment at the atomic level.
