  • Guest Post: Astrocytes in Rett Syndrome: why we shouldn’t ignore them?

    Until recently, despite being the most prominent cell type in the human brain, research on astrocytes has been overshadowed by neurons. Once thought to only provide structural support to neurons it has become clear that astrocytes are a vastly heterogenous population of cells with varied functions and roles to match.

  • iPSC-derived sensory neurons for the study of chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain

    Neuropathic pain is a debilitating side effect of many commonly-used chemotherapy drugs, and in severe cases can result in the discontinuation of a cancer treatment. By understanding the mechanisms through which chemotherapeutics induce neuropathic pain, researchers aim to develop effective treatments designed specifically to alleviate the condition. These will combat the dose-limitation imposed on chemotherapeutics, as well as offering utility for conditions including multiple sclerosis, diabetes and HIV.

  • Understanding the mechanisms of chemotherapy induced neuropathic pain using iPSC-derived sensory neurons

    Many commonly used chemotherapy drugs cause unpleasant side effects and complications. Of these, neuropathic pain can be particularly debilitating. Most of the current treatments for neuropathic pain are medications that were originally approved for other health disorders, such as anti-depressants and anti-seizure drugs. These have their own accompanying problems, and since no single drug is effective against all forms of neuropathic pain, it is essential that new therapeutic agents are developed specifically for the treatment of this condition.
