Cancer researchers collaborate, target DNA damage repair pathways for cancer therapy

Cancer therapies that target specific molecular defects arising from mutations in tumor cells are currently the focus of much anticancer drug development. However, due to the absence of good targets and to the genetic variation in tumors, platinum-based chemotherapies are still the mainstay in the treatment of many cancers, including those that have a mutated […]

Karolinska Institutet, St. Erik Eye Hospital and Novo Nordisk collaborate to find a cure for age-related macular degeneration

Karolinska Institutet and St. Erik Eye Hospital have conducted joint research on cell therapies since 2013. The collaboration with the Danish pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk A/S is based on this research and will focus on developing new retinal cells from embryonic stem cells with the aim of testing these in a small clinical trial. The […]
