Why brain neurons in Parkinson's disease stop benefiting from levodopa
Though the drug levodopa can dramatically improve Parkinson's disease symptoms, within five years one-half of the patients using L-DOPA develop an irreversible condition -- involuntary repetitive, rapid and jerky movements. UAB researchers have uncovered an essential mechanism of long-term memory for L-DOPA-induced-dyskinesia: widespread reorganization of DNA methylation, and this may be a therapeutic target to prevent or reverse dyskinesia.

Portable device produces biologic drugs on demand
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A portable production system, designed to manufacture a range of biopharmaceuticals on demand, has been developed by researchers at MIT, with funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. In a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers demonstrate that the system can be used to produce a single dose of treatment from a compact device containing a small droplet of cells in a liquid.
