Two patients whose lives were saved by discoveries made by Hudson Freeze, Ph.D., and José Luis Millán, Ph.D., joined the scientists for a conversation about what this work means to them and how their lives have been impacted.
Scientists at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute have identified a drug candidate that blocks the uptake of glutamine, a key food source for many tumors, and slows the growth of melanoma.
In an effort to find new treatments for COVID-19 that could be made available quickly, researchers searched through FDA-approved drugs to identify candidates that may inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication. Researchers found that a decades-old anti-leprosy drug exhibits potent antiviral activities against many coronaviruses—including SARS-CoV-2.
