Latest Small molecule Stories
Researchers from Boston College have developed a new class of small molecule receptors capable of detecting a lipid molecule that reveals the telltale signs of cellular death, particularly cancer cells targeted by anti-cancer drugs.
Assembling chemicals can be like putting together a puzzle.
SAN DIEGO, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Visionary Pharmaceuticals, Inc., announced today that the company has raised seed round investments from a consortium of Angel Investors.
Developing new drugs is a highly costly and time-consuming process. Of 20 candidates, 19 are normally rejected because they don't work or have unwanted side effects.
Northwestern University researchers have taken another step towards realizing a new class of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) enzyme mimics, opening the door for the development of highly sensitive chemical detection systems that go beyond nucleic acid targets.
It's a scientist's dream comes true - they are reporting progress in making drugs that target the "untouchables" among the body's key players in health and disease, according to a new study.
BERLIN and BURLINGTON, Mass., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- caprotec bioanalytics GmbH announced today that it has successfully completed a research collaboration with F. Hoffmann-La Roche, Basel, Switzerland.
Chemists in MÃ¼lheim devise a new way of optimizing enzymes for industrial applications.
The search for new drug compounds is probably worse than looking for a needle in a haystack because scientists are limited in the size of the haystacks they can rummage throughâ€”time and money make it virtually impossible to screen or search through super-large libraries of potential compounds.
