Research Progress of CAR-T Therapy in Solid Tumor Treatment
Sep 23, 2022
CAR-T cell therapy research has developed rapidly in recent years, largely based on the remarkable efficacy of CAR-T therapy in hematological malignancies, and scientists are moving quickly to apply this innovative immunotherapy to the treatment of solid tumors, including sarcomas, carcinomas, and lymphomas. Herein, we review the background of CAR-T cell therapy in solid tumor treatment, common research targets, CAR-T optimization strategy, and clinical research progress. Read More >

A Study on The Mechanism of Achromatopsia
Sep 15, 2022
Patients with achromatopsia (ACHM) have abnormal color discrimination on the three color vision axes corresponding to the three cone cells. The patient's three cones, which sense red, green and blue, are completely inoperative, so they cannot distinguish between different colors. Read More >

Mechanisms of Angelman Syndrome and Models for Research
Sep 01, 2022
Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare brain disorder that affects about 1 in 20,000 newborns. Children with AS don't look much different from normal children on the surface—smiling and gentle. However, behind the angelic smile, there are a number of neurodevelopmental problems. The current treatment strategies for Angelman syndrome mainly focus on gene therapy, and the gene delivered by adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector treatment holds promise as a cure for the disease.

CRISPR/Cas9-Mediated Gene Editing System for Effective Treatment of X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa
Aug 09, 2022
Mutations in the retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator (RPGR) gene are associated with X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP), which accounts for 10% to 20% of all cases of retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and is one of its most severe forms. Herein, we review the research procedure that has culminated in the development of a potential gene therapy for XLRP caused by RPGR mutations. Read More >

The Culprits of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Aug 09, 2022
Age and heredity are currently recognized as the most relevant causative factors for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), although age is also the biggest risk factor for many other neurodegenerative diseases. While inherited ALS accounts for only 5% of patients, there are more than 20 gene mutations identified as the pathological culprits of ALS. Read More >
