For the first time, Johns Hopkins researchers, including Dr. Jordan Green, used a compound-filled biodegradable nanoparticle gene therapy along with an intercranial delivery system to kill brain cancer cells in animals and lengthen their survival. This new strategy shows great promise in treating brain cancers, such as glioma.

Researchers in the Calcium Signals Laboratory have discovered a mechanism that governs a cellular dialog between the two forms of calmodulin. This enables new strategies for treating diseases relating to maladaptive bioelectrical and Ca2+ signaling, such as cardiac arrhythmias, epilepsy, and Parkinson’s Disease.

Johns Hopkins researchers discover that an FDA-approved HIV drug may be useful in treating breast cancer metastasis
Use of drugs previously approved for other diseases, such as HIV and rheumatoid arthritis, opens attractive possibilities for treating cancer patients — as repurposed or repositioned drugs promises significant savings in development time and resources.
