Ligandal CEO Unveils Nanotech Delivery for Genetic Therapies: “What Good Would Amazon Be Without the Shipping?”
Most existing drugs either utilize viruses or recombinant protein factors,” Watson said. “Viral gene therapies and other current techniques pose significant concerns with immunogenicity and other safety issues. On the other hand, we’ve developed nanoparticles that have no inherent immunogenicity or toxicity, enable precise engineering and flexible payloads, and can time-release the delivery of new characteristics into the correct organelle of the cell.”

ligands combined with Ligandal’s next-generation, non-viral, protein-based biomaterials will soon deliver therapies enabled by CRIPSR, TALEN, mRNA, siRNA, DNA, and the future of genetic technologies.

“Beyond monogenetic diseases, we foresee our technology opening a frontier of genetically tailored, molecularly precise medicine,” Watson said. “Our technology also creates the infrastructure for rapid gene therapy discovery and drug development.”

Therapies based on nanoparticles will be easily customized, rapidly scalable, and provide the potential to bring down production costs by 100 times

"Unlike conventional antidepressants, which generally take weeks to start working, ketamine lifts depression in as little as two hours.

“It blew the doors off what we thought we knew about depression treatment,” says psychiatrist James Murrough at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. The excitement over ketamine shows how badly new depression drugs are needed, says Thomas Insel, director of the US National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in Bethesda, Maryland. Many drug companies have closed their mental-health divisions in the past five years, and there have been no significant advances in medication for depression in decades.

ketamine seems specifically to affect the desire to attempt suicide, whether a person is clinically depressed or not"

A fasting-diet may trigger regeneration of a diabetic pancreas | Ars Technica
"In mice with either type I or type 2 diabetes, an intense, four-day fasting diet seemed to regenerate pancreas cells and restore insulin production. Experts warn that trying out the diet could trigger dangerous complications in diabetic patients.

The mice were given a low-calorie, low-protein, low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet for four days. On the first day, the mice could only eat 50 percent of their normal calorie intake. For the remaining three days, the mice ate just 10 percent. Next, they got up to 10 days of normal eating, which allowed them to regain lost weight, before another four-day fast. The mice went through this cycle three times."
