The University of the Sciences research team has uncovered CAPER as a novel therapeutic target inside breast cancer cells. CAPER has been shown to be overexpressed in these cancer cells and seems to be helping the cancer thrive and survive.  Targeted cancer therapy is becoming a leading approach to cancer treatment and Dr. Jasmin and […]

Human growth hormone (hGH), also known as somatotropin or somatropin, is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth and differentiation of target tissues. Exogenously administered hGH can be an effective treatment for growth disorders in both children and adults.

The Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Receptor (GLP-1R), a member of Class B family of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), is an effective target for the treatment of type-2 diabetes, and its incretin peptide and varied peptide mimetics are adopted drugs. Despite remarkable anti-diabetic effects, GLP-1R peptide-based agonists are limited by several disadvantages. Although considerable progress has been […]
