In prokaryotes, CRISPR/Cas adaptive immunity systems target and destroy nucleic acids derived from invading bacteriophages and other foreign genetic elements. In eukaryotes, the native function of these systems has been exploited to combat viruses in mammals and plants. Rewired CRISPR/Cas9 and CRISPR/Cas13 systems have been used to confer resistance against DNA and RNA viruses, respectively. Here, we discuss recent approaches employing CRISPR/Cas systems to combat viruses in eukaryotes, highlight key challenges, and provide future perspectives...

Interest in implementing green chemistry principles in analytical chemistry has grown dramatically in the past few years. The solvents used have the major influence on the greenness of the method. Most conventional high-performance liquid chromatography methods employed utilize solvents that are "hazardous for the environment". In the present study, two-factor three-level response surface design was exploited to develop eco-friendly chromatographic methods for two different mixtures. The first one was Atorvastatin and Amlodipine and the second one was Amlodipine, Perindopril, and Indapamide...

Programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) plays an important role in the immune evasion of cancer cells and, in turn, can influence the outcome of many malignancies. The serum soluble PD-L1 (sPD-L1) levels were measured in diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients at diagnosis and at end of treatment. Their impact on end of treatment metabolic response was analyzed. Serum sPD-L1 level was significantly elevated in DLBCL patients at diagnosis than in controls (P < 0.001). Also, serum sPD-L1 level at diagnosis was significantly higher than that at end of treatment (P < 0...

BACKGROUND: Egypt has high incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This is due to wide spread of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection which is responsible for most of the cases of liver cirrhosis. The major diagnostic techniques for HCC include serum markers and various imaging modalities. Glypican 3 (GPC3) protein is highly expressed in HCC, but not in normal liver tissue. The significance of GPC3 as a predictor or diagnostic tool for human tumors other than HCC is unclear. AIM: To quantitatively assess the role of GPC3 in diagnosis of HCC in comparison to α-fetoprotein (AFP), ultrasonography (US), and computerized tomography (CT)...
