PellePharm announces launch to develop topical gel for basal cell carcinoma
PellePharm announced its launch today, with financing from BridgeBio Pharma. The Menlo Park, Calif.-based company is developing a topical gel to treat basal cell carcinoma, including the tumors that result from Gorlin syndrome. The company’s topical inhibitor compound, patidegib, acts on the hedgehog pathway – a signaling pathway that transmits cellular information for adult tissue maintenance. Abnormal hedgehog signaling has been correlated with a number of cancers including basal cell carcinoma. PellePharm is studying the topical formulation of patidegib in 2 phase II trials. A study evaluating the gel’...

Improved understanding of protein complex offers insight into DNA replication initiation mechanism basics
A clearer understanding of the origin recognition complex -- a protein complex that directs DNA replication -- through its crystal structure offers new insight into fundamental mechanisms of DNA replication initiation. This will also provide insight into how ORC may be compromised in a subset of patients with Meier-Gorlin syndrome, a form of dwarfism in humans. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)
