As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, researchers involved in drug development are making progress in developing new medicines. In this issue, we take a look at some of the recent COVID-19 vaccines being developed.
With the future of the world at stake, pharmaceutical researchers have been racing, since March, to find a way to cure or prevent COVID-19. That urgency to develop an effective treatment or vaccine has produced some encouraging results with new and existing drugs. While a sure-fire cure hasn’t yet been discovered, the advances that have been made may provide therapeutic benefits as well as a strong foundation for future research. Ongoing studies, tests, and clinical trials each move us that bit closer to stopping, slowing, and preventing COVID-19.
Cardiovascular disease remains the leading causes of death for adults worldwide, but promising new technologies and clinical discoveries have the potential to propel prevention, detection, and treatment efforts forward. This research round-up describes some of the innovations and insights on the horizon.
Researchers are making exciting inroads in cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. The articles featured this month report on four studies addressing myriad issues patients and health care providers face.
“Cancer is a global health problem and the continuous rise in incidence and mortality due to cancer carries a real economic burden to all countries. Accumulation of genetic mutation, exposure of environmental carcinogens and food habits due to change in lifestyles are the key reasons for cancer.” Deepti Singh et al., Recent Patents on Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery, 2019
Four decades of research on Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury have led to a much greater understanding of the biological mechanisms involved in complex neurodegenerative conditions. The research articles featured this month report on four very different studies. Each one contributes important clues and insights that advance understanding and hopefully, will lead to breakthroughs in new drugs and therapies. To that end, please feel free to read, share, and build on the research highlighted.
