Gene therapy tested on cystic fibrosis; New peptide platform safeguards therapies;

> A new study by the Laboratory for Molecular Virology and Gene Therapy at KU Leuven in Belgium spotlights a gene therapy for cystic fibrosis, which proved effective in mice as well as cell cultures. Release

> Chemists at the University of California, San Diego, have developed a new platform tech for peptides, using a "densely branching polymer" to protect them from the natural hazards that make peptides hard to develop as therapeutics. Release
