Quantum dot therapeutics: a new class of radical therapies.

J Biol Eng 2019 29;13:48. Epub 2019 May 29.

1Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder, Boulder, CO 80303 USA.

Traditional therapeutics and vaccines represent the bedrock of modern medicine, where isolated biochemical molecules or designed proteins have led to success in treating and preventing diseases. However, several adaptive pathogens, such as multidrug-resistant (MDR) superbugs, and rapidly evolving diseases, such as cancer, can evade such molecules very effectively. This poses an important problem since the rapid emergence of multidrug-resistance among microbes is one of the most pressing public health crises of our time-one that could claim more than 10 million lives and 100 trillion dollars annually by 2050.

The road to aryl CHanion binding was paved with good intentions: fundamental studies, host design, and historical perspectives in CH hydrogen bonding.

Chem Commun (Camb) 2019 May 4;55(36):5195-5206. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and the Materials Science Institute, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-1253, USA.

Throughout the design and development of supramolecular receptors for anion binding, many different non-covalent anion-binding motifs have been employed. One motif seen in many host-guest systems is the sometimes weaker, 'non-traditional' aryl CH hydrogen bond. From June Sutor's discovery of the interaction and its subsequent dismissal by the field in the 1960s to today's use of the aryl CH hydrogen bond in synthetic anion receptors, the path our lab took to begin studying this interaction has been influenced by many other researchers in the field.

Vaccine 2013 Apr;31 Suppl 2:B233-43

PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative, Washington, DC 20001-2621, USA.

While recent progress has been made in reducing malaria mortality with other interventions, vaccines are still urgently needed to further reduce the incidence of clinical disease, including during pregnancy, and to provide "herd protection" by blocking parasite transmission. The most clinically advanced candidate, RTS,S, is presently undergoing Phase 3 evaluation in young African children across 13 clinical sites in eight African countries. In the 12-month period following vaccination, RTS,S conferred approximately 50% protection from clinical Plasmodium falciparum disease in children aged 5-17 months, and approximately 30% protection in children aged 6-12 weeks when administered in conjunction with Expanded Program for Immunization (EPI) vaccines.
