Synthetic protein targets EBV

UW researchers at the Institute of Protein Design have developed a synthetic protein called BINDI which binds to the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) protein BHRF1 responsible for immortalizing cells. Inhibition of BHRF1, a BCL2 homologue, may prove to be a useful treatment for EBV related cancers and other conditions stemming from EBV.

I hope not but...

Nervous about starting Tecfidera

I finally got my Tecfidera starter pack after over a month of waiting. I plan to start it tomorrow or Monday, but I am a little nervous. I will be traveling to Peru next month for Christmas - which gives me about 6 weeks to be on the medication before I go. I'm worried the side effects won't have diminished by then and have been considering waiting until I get back from my trip to ...
