Four Chinese nationals have been charged with visa fraud after revelations that they sent information on the layout of US labs and research carried out by colleagues back to China.
Scientists report on cell lines of increased resistance to gemcitabine that have been generated from this line, with the most resistant having 1,000-fold reduced sensitivity to gemcitabine.
Researchers report that PRMT1 expression is increased in pancreatic cancer tissues and associated with higher tumor grade, increased aggressiveness and worse prognosis.
For the hundreds of thousands of people enrolling in clinical trials every year—and for whom experimental therapies can offer a last hope—a new report provides some welcome news: Enrollment in clinical studies in the United States is on the rebound after disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
A historic €1.8-trillion (US$2.1-trillion) budget deal reached by European Union (EU) leaders to fund its next seven years — and its recovery from the coronavirus pandemic — has left scientists and research advocates disappointed.
The authors review recent studies demonstrating how specific epigenetic mechanisms drive aspects of stromal and immune cell differentiation with implications for the development of solid tumor therapeutics, focusing on the pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma tumor microenvironment as a representative of solid tumors.

CalciMedica and EpiPharma announced that they have entered into a collaboration agreement to use EpiPharma’s state-of-the-art pre-Clinical Drug Testing and Diagnostics Laboratory Platform to accelerate the discovery and development of CalciMedica’s CRAC channel inhibitor novel drug pipeline.
Investigators found that tectorigenin could suppress induced apoptosis and improved the viability of β-cells under glucotoxicity and lipotoxicity by activation of ERK and reduction of reactive oxygen species and endoplasmic reticulum stress.

Inhibition of ubiquitin activating enzyme 1 (UAE1) activity in response to TAK-243 led to an accumulation of misfolded proteins within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), thereby aggravating ER stress, leading to DNA damage and arrest of cells in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle.
