Using Genome-Scale Metabolic Models for Human Diseases
Genome-scale metabolic models (GEMs) are relatively new tools for studying the metabolic changes associated with many diseases. GEMs are reconstructions of the metabolic networks of cells, sometimes able to represent an organism’s whole body.
Oral Nucleic Acid Therapy for Gastro-Intestinal Diseases
DNA and RNA (nucleic acids) interference therapies have the potential to treat many human diseases.
Nanotherapy Treatments Aim to Change Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy’s Outcome
A recent review discusses the emerging nanomedications and therapies with potential to alter Duchenne’s fatal outcome.
The Link between Climate Change and Gender Inequality

How Can Protein Coronas Impact the Future of Nanomedicine?
The application and the clinical development of nanomedicines strongly requires a deep study on the complex dynamics that happen after in vivo administration. Particularly, plasma proteins tend to associate to nanoparticles, forming a new surface named the “protein corona” that can have a strong impact on biodistribution, targeting efficacy, and toxicity.
