Press Release No. 16 April 26, 2019 Berlin Press Invitation: Opening Conference of LifeTime in Berlin The Opening Conference of LifeTime will take place on 6 and 7 May 2019 in Berlin. The pan-European research initiative aims to develop new technologies for the treatment and early detection of diseases. Press Release No. 34 December 20, 2017 Berlin The dark side of treating cancer with drugs What are the consequences if a cellular aging-like program is acutely activated in tumor cells? And what role does the stem cell program play in it? Press Release No. 26 November 15, 2017 Berlin Gut bacteria are sensitive to salt Common salt reduces the number of certain lactic acid bacteria in the gut of mice and humans according to a study published in Nature by Berlin’s Max Delbrück Center and Charité. This has an impact on immune cells which are partly responsible for autoimmune diseases and hypertension. Probiotics ameliorate the symptoms of disease in mice. Press Release No. 27 November 04, 2015 Berlin Uptake mechanisms of cytostatics discovered How does a cytostatic like cisplatin or carboplatin actually get into the cell? Scientists at the MaxDelbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) and the Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) in Berlin, in cooperation with a Dutch group, have now succeeded in showing that the volume-regulated anion channel VRAC is 50 % responsible for active substance uptake. If one of the VRAC subunits LRRC8A or LRRC8D is down-regulated, cells take up considerably less of the anti-cancer drug. In addition to this finding, programmed cell death or apoptosis is also significantly disturbed when LRRC8A is missing. The researchers have thus identified a potential cause for therapy resistance.
