The FDA has approved Ironwood Pharmaceuticals’ gout drug, Duzallo, although the regulator has required a black box warning highlighting risk of kidney failure. A once-daily drug, Duzallo combines the standard of care treatment, allopurinol, with Ironwood’s lesinurad. Ironwood said the drug offers a dual mechanism of action treating inefficient excretion and overproduction of uric acid in gout patients. Gout is a painful form of inflammatory arthritis caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the...

A collaboration between nine different European research organizations, including the medical device giant Medtronic, has developed a prototype device for quick and easy measurement of arterial stiffness. This is an important development, as arterial stiffness is a biomarker for high blood pressure, but there are no reliable ways of measuring it without a cardiologist bearing special equipment. The new device looks like a blow dryer, but it emits low powered laser beams that work with a speciall...

Engineering cellular biology, minus the actual cell, is a growing area of interest in biotechnology and synthetic biology. It's known as cell-free protein synthesis or CFPS, and it has the potential to provide sustainable ways to make chemicals, medicines, and biomaterials. Unfortunately, a long-standing gap in cell-free systems is the ability to manufacture glycosylated proteins—proteins with a carbohydrate attachment. Glycosylation is crucial for a wide range of important biological ...

The FDA has granted Fast Track designation to Shire's SHP607 for the prevention of chronic lung disease in extremely premature infants. SHP607, currently in phase 2 clinical development, is a recombinant human version of the naturally occurring protein complex of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and its most abundant binding protein, IGF binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3). IGF-1 plays an important role in the development of the fetus in the uterus....

Researchers at the University of Arizona have developed an advanced optogenetics device that can stimulate multiple areas of the brain at once and control the intensity of emitted light. The miniaturized device is wireless and battery-free, and the researchers hope that it will pave the way to treating severe neurological disorders and controlling chronic pain. Optogenetics involves loading specific neurons with proteins called opsins, which can stimulate a neuron to fire when exposed to light. ...
