A once-promising anti-Alzheimer’s drug failed in final clinical trials early in 2019, but now the company producing it is claiming it analyzed the data incorrectly. The drug actually works, it says, and all eyes are now on the FDA’s approval process.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of the disease, thanks largely to the fact that the tumors tend to be much more solid. This means that cancer drugs aren't able to get inside to work their magic. But now researchers have identified a promising new drug candidate that could linger for longer to worm its way in, and it works especially well when paired with other cancer drug
Hooking our brains up to machines could indeed merge human and artificial intelligence, as envisioned by Elon Musk's Neuralink, and the like. But the more immediate benefits are likely to come in the form of new forms of treatment for brain diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. Scientists have put forward another promising experimental device built for these kinds of tasks, which ca
Products infused with CBD are dotted throughout sparse gallery-like rooms inside west London's The Drug Store, which has been designed by the brand's co-founders. Read more
A novel experimental drug is showing promising results from its final phase of human clinical trials. Part of a new class of drugs called JAK-inhibitors, this therapy targets rheumatoid arthritis sufferers and is hoped to be approved for use by the FDA within the next 12 months...

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted accelerated approval to a new cancer drug called selinexor. This pill, which also goes by the market name Xpovio, has been found to be successful in treating multiple myeloma in patients that hadn't had success with other treatments. But at this very early stage the drug comes with some major caveats... Continue Reading FDA approves ris
A new drug delivery system has been developed that hides chemotherapy molecules inside fat cells that are quickly eaten up by hungry tumors. The method has been shown to be effective at targeting bone, colon and pancreatic cancers in animals, and human trials are proposed for the near future...

Evolution has obviously helped humans get to where we are today – but now it's working against us. Bacteria are rapidly developing resistance to our best drugs, hurtling us towards a future where antibiotics simply don't work anymore. Now a team of researchers has uncovered a potentially exploitable chink in the armor of a particularly troublesome group of bacteria... Continue Reading Bact
A huge range of drugs are in development to help fight cancer, but sometimes they work better in pairs than alone. Now researchers at MIT have identified a surprising new dynamic drug duo, combining two classes that are already beginning to be widely used. Interestingly, the combo appears to work in a completely different way to what scientists previously expected... Continue Reading MIT s
Though advances in medicine have greatly improved the lives of HIV sufferers and made the virus much more manageable, a permanent cure has remained elusive. Scientists have now made a significant breakthrough in this area, using the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing tool to entirely remove the virus from the genomes of living animals for the first time ever...
