News: Smallest-reported artificial virus could help advance gene therapy
Gene therapy is a kind of experimental treatment that is designed to fix faulty genetic material and help a patient fight off or recover from a disease. Now scientists have engineered the smallest-reported virus-like shell that can self-assemble. It could someday carry potentially therapeutic DNA or RNA and transfer it to human cells. The report appears in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

News: New gene therapy technique can stop the spread of malignant cancer cells
MIT scientists have developed a new gene therapy technique that can stop the spread of malignant cells around the body - the leading cause of mortality in women with breast cancer. The treatment uses microRNAs - small noncoding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression - to control the spread of cancer cells around the body, known as metastasis. The therapy could be used alongside chemotherapy to treat early-stage breast cancer tumours before they spread, according to Natalie Artzi, a principal research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US.
