Scientists, biotechs look to unlock the potential of phage therapy

Share This Post

According to scholarly articles, phage, a type of virus that infects bacteria, has demonstrated its effectiveness in treating different kinds of bacterial infections and diseases. However, clinical trials have failed in proving its value based on current regulatory requirements. Hence, scientists and researchers are working to discover what phage therapy has to offer, including preventing cholera infections. With an orally dosed bacteriophage cocktail targeting endemic strains of cholera, Minmin Yen, company co-founder and CEO of PhagePro, aims to provide immediate protection and disrupt cholera transmission among household members.

Magneto Protein Could Help Magnets Control Brain Circuitry

This groundbreaking research by scientists at the University of Virginia has demonstrated a novel way to control the nervous systems of zebrafish and mice using magnets. This method, called magnetogenetics, involves inserting genetic constructs into neurons to make them sensitive to magnetic fields, providing a more precise and non-invasive way to control and manipulate neural circuits than traditional methods. This could one day revolutionize the treatment of brain disorders in humans. Read full article here
