Asthma drug from the garden center

(University of Bonn) The coralberry could offer new hope for asthmatics: researchers at the University of Bonn have extracted a new kind of active pharmaceutical ingredient from its leaves to combat this widespread respiratory disease. In mice, it almost completely inhibits the characteristic contraction of the airways. The plant itself is not exotic: it can be found in any well-stocked garden center. The study is published in the renowned journal Science Translational Medicine.

Human β-tryptase, a tetrameric trypsin-like serine protease, is an important mediator of the allergic inflammatory responses in asthma. During acute hypersensitivity reactions, mast cells degranulate, releasing active tetramer as a complex with proteoglycans. Extensive efforts have focused on developing therapeutic β-tryptase inhibitors, but its unique activation mechanism is less well-explored. Tryptase is active only after proteolytic removal of the pro-domain followed by tetramer formation via two distinct symmetry-related interfaces. We show that the cleaved I16G mutant cannot tetramerize, likely due to impai...

Publication date: Available online 21 June 2018 Source:Pharmacological Research Author(s): Ying Zhang, Hiroko Kishi, Sei Kobayashi Add-on therapy with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been extensively researched in the intractable diseases, such as asthma, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.

At the end of a quiet and unassuming neighborhood street in Pontiac, Michigan, a red-brick church stands forlorn. No sign indicates whether the tired building continues to hold Sunday-morning services; however, it respectfully stands erect. It’s here that I met Misa Mi on a warm October morning last fall. As the Director of Curriculum Evaluation and Associate Professor of Biomedical Sciences at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, as well as the school’s health information specialist, she received a GMR grant in 2016 to fund a health literacy project for the HOPE Recuperative Care Center, a n...
