Homocysteine fibrillar assemblies display crosstalk with Alzheimer’s disease amyloid polypeptide

High levels of homocysteine (Hcy) are reported as a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Correspondingly, inborn hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with an increased predisposition to the development of dementia in later stages of life. Furthermore, despite the apparent association between protein aggregation and AD, attempts to develop a therapy that targets explicitly this process have […] Read More >

Therapeutic Targeting of PD-1/PD-L1 blockade by Novel Small-molecule Inhibitors

Interactions between programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) and programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) lead to the evasion of cancer cells from an efficient immune response. The inhibition of PD-L1/PD-1 has prevented or reversed exhausted T cells, thus enhancing antitumor T-cell responses. In fact, immune checkpoint blockade targeting the PD-1 axis has become one […] Read More >
