TREM2: a new player in atherosclerosis

TREM2, a receptor on the surface of macrophages, could play an important role in atherosclerosis A publication in Nature Cardiovascular Research from the University Hospital Würzburg (UKW) and the Medical University of Vienna investigates the mechanisms by which the receptor TREM2 affects atherosclerosis and a possible therapeutic approach using an agonistic TREM2 antibody.

Scientists from the University Hospital Würzburg and the Medical University of Vienna have discovered that TREM2, a receptor found on the surface of specific immune cells, could have a significant impact on arteriosclerosis. Their research is aimed at better understanding these mechanisms and developing new treatment methods using a particular antibody.

Fluorierte Lipopeptide als hochwirksame Antibiotika
Multiresistente bakterielle Infektionen, gegen die keine bekannten Antibiotika mehr helfen, sind eine ernsthafte globale Bedrohung. Ein chinesisches Forschungsteam stellt in der Zeitschrift Angewandte Chemie jetzt einen Ansatz vor, auf dessen Basis sich neuartige Antibiotika gegen resistente Keime entwickeln lassen. Sie basieren auf Eiweißbausteinen mit fluorierten Lipidketten.
