Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding of the Polish Academy of Sciences

Belkins
The Institute has a prestigious status of the Leading National Research Centre granted by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The principal fields of the Institute’s activity include basic research on molecular genetics, cytogenetics, experimental embryology and biotechnology, as well as the genetic background to the physiology of stress and animal etiology. Research in applied sciences is conducted in the fields of population genetics, animal breeding, as also animal maintenance and production systems. Studies on animal behaviour and welfare are an important complement. The principal aim of research in applied sciences is the elaboration of such methods of animal improvement and production, which render possible the production of safe and valuable food, simultaneously retaining a high level of animal welfare and a limited unfavourable effect of agriculture on the environment.

A FUTURE GENE THERAPY COULD BE DELIVERED IN TINY ‘NANOCONTAINERS’

Labiotech.eu | January 28, 2020

news image

A Swiss research group has developed tiny plastic particles that could carry gene therapies to the center of the cell with less risk of getting attacked by the immune system than conventional gene therapies. The majority of gene therapies in use today are delivered to the DNA of target cells using viral vectors. While efficient at their job, viral vectors can risk triggering the immune system to destroy them. This can lead to the therapy becoming ineffective....

Intravacc, a global leader in translational research and development of viral and bacterial vaccines, today announced the publication in the medical journal Vaccine, of a clinical phase I study with its candidate Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) vaccine. The vaccine showed excellent induction of immunogenicity after nasal administration to healthy adult volunteers (18-50 years). In addition, the Live Attenuated Vaccine (LAV), constructed with reverse genetics, appears to be safe and well-tolera...

ALX RAISES $105M FOR MIDPHASE TRIALS OF CD47 CANCER DRUG

FierceBiotech | February 12, 2020

news image

ALX Oncology has raised $105 million. The series C round will support phase 2 trials of CD47 myeloid checkpoint inhibitor ALX148 in combination with other anti-cancer therapies. Multiple drug developers have gone after CD47 since evidence of its role in the interactions between cancer cells and the immune system became clear. The evidence suggested tumors evade immune attacks by upregulating CD47, leading researchers to posit that blocking the signal will expose cancer cells to a full-force offe...
