Understanding Drug Resistance Mechanism of NS3/4A Protease of HCV Using Comparative Molecular Dynamics Simulation

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infects approximately 325 million individuals globally causing hepatitis C, a fatal disease leading to liver cirrhosis. Imperative sincere efforts are needed to develop inhibitors targeting the essential NS3/4A protease. NS3/4A protease is an exceptionally significant target. Resistance against the most promising protease inhibitors, Telaprevir, Boceprevir and Faldaprevir has emerged in clinical … Continue Reading

Understanding the Mechanism of Cell Death in Gemcitabine Resistant Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma: A Systems Biology Approach

Background: Gemcitabine is the standard chemotherapeutic drug administered in advanced Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDAC). However, due to drug resistance in PDAC patients, this treatment has become less effective. Over the years, clinical trials for the quest of finding novel compounds that can be used in combination with gemcitabine have met very little success. Objective: To … Continue Reading
