The point-of-care detection of pathogens in biological samples in resource-limited settings should be inexpensive, rapid, portable, simple and accurate. Here, we describe a custom-made fidget spinner that rapidly concentrates pathogens in 1-ml samples of undiluted urine by more than 100-fold for the on-device colorimetric detection of bacterial load and pathogen identification. In Tiruchirappalli, India, the device enabled the on-site detection of infection with the naked eye within 50 min in ur...

The intravenous administration of a formulation of interleukin-12 that binds to collagen in established ‘immunologically cold’ murine tumours enhances interferon-γ production by T cells and causes tumour remission, especially when in combination with immune checkpoint blockade therapy.

Treatment of patients with diabetes with insulin and pramlintide (an amylin analogue) is more effective than treatment with insulin only. However, because mixtures of insulin and pramlintide are unstable and have to be injected separately, amylin analogues are only used by 1.5% of people with diabetes needing rapid-acting insulin. Here, we show that the supramolecular modification of insulin and pramlintide with cucurbit[7]uril-conjugated polyethylene glycol improves the pharmacokinetics of the ...

The stabilization of co-administered insulin and pramlintide with cucurbit[7]uril-conjugated poly(ethylene glycol) in diabetic pigs enhances the overlap of their therapeutic windows.

The oral administration of peptide drugs is hampered by their metabolic instability and limited intestinal uptake. Here, we describe a method for the generation of small target-specific peptides (less than 1,600 Da in size) that resist gastrointestinal proteases. By using phage display to screen large libraries of genetically encoded double-bridged peptides on protease-resistant fd bacteriophages, we generated a peptide inhibitor of the coagulation Factor XIa with nanomolar affinity that resiste...

The selection of double-bridged peptides via in vitro phage display yields constrained cyclic peptides optimized for high therapeutic specificity and for stability against gastrointestinal proteases.

Monolayers of cancer-derived cell lines are widely used in the modelling of the gastrointestinal (GI) absorption of drugs and in oral drug development. However, they do not generally predict drug absorption in vivo. Here, we report a robotically handled system that uses large porcine GI tissue explants that are functionally maintained for an extended period in culture for the high-throughput interrogation (several thousand samples per day) of whole segments of the GI tract. The automated culture...
