AstraZeneca agrees to buy US FDA Priority Review Voucher from Sobi

AstraZeneca announced that it has agreed to buy a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Priority Review Voucher (PRV) for a total cash consideration of $95m from a subsidiary of Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (Sobi). A PRV entitles the holder to FDA priority review of a single New Drug Application or Biologics License Application, which reduces the target review time and may potentially lead to an expedited approval.

Scientists develop a new gene-editing tool that could help treat many disorders caused by gene mutations

Researchers have developed a new tool — dubbed SATI — to edit the mouse genome, enabling the team to target a broad range of mutations and cell types. The new genome-editing technology could be expanded for use in a broad range of gene mutation conditions such as Huntington’s disease and the rare premature aging syndrome, progeria.

Bacteria and baker’s yeast generate and use their energy to grow

Researchers have shed light on how bacteria and baker’s yeast generate and use their energy to grow. Knowing about cells’ energy use is essential for industrial biotech processes.

Using CRISPR in a different way to create new materials

The CRISPR genome-editing system is best-known for its potential to correct disease-causing mutations and add new genes into living cells. Now, a team from MIT and Harvard University has deployed CRISPR for a completely different purpose: creating novel materials, such as gels, that can change their properties when they encounter specific DNA sequences.

Semiconductor Startup Shows Off the World’s Biggest Processor

In the semiconductor industry, bigger is not usually better. For 60 years, chip companies have strived to make the brains of computers as tiny as possible.

Rozlytrek bags FDA approval

Roche has announced the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of Rozlytrek (entrectinib) for the treatment of adults with ROS1-positive, metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

New Semiconductor Paves Way for Non-Toxic Solar Cells

Solar panels have been a great benefit to the world’s interest in deriving electricity from alternative energy sources. However, one drawback to the technology is that the panels and cells themselves are created from toxic and non-environmentally friendly materials.

Advanced Fan-out Technology Breakthrough: Deca Technologies’ M-Series™ Identified in Samsung S10, Xiaomi Mi 9 and LG G8 Handsets

A wafer-level electronic interconnect solutions provider to the semiconductor industry, today announced that Industry researchers Yole and TechInsights have independently confirmed that M-Series™ fan-out wafer-level packaging (FOWLP) technology created by Deca Technologies has been adopted by Qualcomm for power management integrated circuit (PMIC) devices in Samsung’s flagship S10 handset, along with the Xiaomi Mi 9 and LG G8 handsets.

Chlamydia Vaccine Could Become Reality After Successful Clinical Trial

A vaccine to protect against chlamydia is now a step closer to becoming reality after a pioneering clinical trial has found the treatment to be safe.

A micro-LED Display Patent was Published in Europe this Month that could Apply to Future iDevices, Macs & More

Even more recently, it has been proposed to integrate emissive inorganic semiconductor-based micro LEDs into displays. More specifically, it has been proposed to transfer individual micro LEDs from carrier substrates to a display substrate utilizing an array of electrostatic transfer heads.
