Several teams, led by Professor Livio Mallucci, from King’s discovered that β-galactoside-binding protein (βGBP), a naturally occurring molecule produced by immune cells can non-specifically target cancer cells, make them undergo cell death and through a stress response pathway make the cancer cells visible to the immune system to prompt an anti-cancer immune response that would secure protection against recurrences.

Researcher develops nanosystem that promotes regeneration after root canals
A novel nanosystem developed by Anil Kishen, a professor in the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Dentistry, shows promising results in promoting healing and regeneration by host tissues following root canals.

Kishen’s research was published recently in the medical journal Nanomedicine: Nanotechology, Biology and Medicine.

The current treatment for root canals focuses on reducing bacterial loads. After instrumentation and irrigation, however, the canals of the tooth are filled with synthetic materials – with the possibility that the infecting bacteria colonies are not fully eliminated. That can leave the tooth susceptible to persistent infections. (More)
