New nanotechnology therapeutics could soon fight influenza, other viruses

Newly emerging flu viruses could soon be countered by a treatment that Draper Laboratory is developing that 'traps' viruses before they can infect host cells. Further into the future, patients suffering from any type of virus could be cured with DRACO, a drug also under development at Draper that is designed to rapidly recognize and eliminate cells infected by virtually any virus.

Sophisticated systems biology approach with nanoparticles prevents breast cancer formation in mice

A novel injectable therapy partially reverses cancer formation in cultured mammary-gland cells and prevents breast cancer development in mice. The therapy silences a new cancer-causing gene that the scientists identified using a sophisticated systems biology approach. It could one day provide a new way to treat early stages of breast cancer without surgery, chemotherapy or radiation.
