Antibody Therapies in Cancer

2015-06-04 :: BioLegend Inc

Description: Antibody therapies have become incredibly popular for the treatment of diseases, including cancer. In cancer, it may be beneficial to prevent interaction of “immune checkpoints”, which can inactivate T cells.

CRISPR and the Game of Patents

2015-04-10 :: BioLegend Inc

Description: CRISPR is an amazing technology originally discovered in bacteria as a defense mechanism against invading foreign genetic material. Researchers are now repurposing this for useful applications in like increasing crop size and treating diseases like HIV and cancer. There’s a battle brewing over the CRISPR patents with millions in funds (and profit) at stake. Who will win own the rights to CRISPR technology? And is this work ethical?
