Restoring Leaky Blood Vessels Could Lead to Tuberculosis Treatment

Researchers from the Duke University have found that an FDA-approved drug developed to treat cancer helps fight tuberculosis. The drug is an MMP inhibitor designed to increase the structural integrity of blood vessels in tumors so that other drugs can reach inside them. It performs the same function in the granulomas associated with tuberculosis so that antibiotics can reach the bacteria sheltering within.

Role of PI4P in The Replication of Encephalomyocarditis Virus

According to the study, researchers studied the role of phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PI4P), a critical host factor for both encephalomyocarditis virus replication that has been recently found to expedite enterovirus replication organelles (RO) formation rather than being strictly required
