CRISPR tech leads to new screening tool for Parkinson's disease
A team of researchers is using breakthrough gene-editing technology to develop a new screening tool for Parkinson's disease, a debilitating degenerative disorder of the nervous system. The technology allows scientists in the lab to 'light up' and then monitor a brain protein called alpha-synuclein that has been associated with Parkinson's.

Immunotherapy target suppresses pain to mask cancer
Researchers found that a molecule called PD-L1, which is blocked by the immunotherapy drug nivolumab, acts not only on immune cells but also on the nerve cells that signal pain. That insight could lead to a simple test that measures subtle differences in pain sensitivity to gauge whether or not a cancer patient is responding to immunotherapy. This study also identifies PD-L1 as a previously unrecognized neuromodulator and pain inhibitor.
