  • Researching the anti-cancer properties of chlorella

    Dr. Victor Marchione writes in naturalblaza.com about recent research into the anti-cancer effects of chlorella vulgaris extract (CVE). The studies relate to apoptosis, a process of cell self-destruction that happens naturally in the body from time to time to make room for new, young healthy cells, and why this does not happen in cancer cells.

  • Skeletal chains could help algae deliver drugs

    Skeletons of single-celled algae have been modified while they are still alive to incorporate molecular chains that can harness chemical cargo. The algal bodies are then dissolved away so that their remains can be used to deliver drugs or clean up contaminated water. The microscopic algae known as diatoms are supported by skeletons made of silica that are about 10 micrometres across. […]

  • PharmaMar researchers have identified two new anticancer compounds

    By scouring the oceans for disease-fighting molecules, researchers have identified two new anticancer compounds. Isolated from a sea sponge, the compounds represent a new class of the natural products called polyketides, many of which have biological activity. Because it’s not possible to extract sufficient amounts of the molecules from the sponges, the researchers also devised chemical syntheses that allowed them to […]

  • Biomedical benefits of algae investigated in Chile

    Researchers at the University of Santiago de Chile (Usach) are studying three species of algae in the Region of Magallanes so as to use them in the development of antibacterial patches and in gastric juice resistant drug encapsulation. The study, entitled Soluble Algal Polysaccharides from the Magallanes Region, is a project funded by the Department of Scientific and Technological Research (Dicyt) of the […]

  • Sea of miracles: industrial uses for ocean biodiversity

    The seafloor is our planet’s most biodiverse realm. It is in the sea that life on earth began over 3.5 billion years ago. It is in the sea where 34 of the 36 known phyla of animals remain to this day, 15 of which are exclusive to the world’s oceans. And it is in the sea where myriad opportunities await. The commercial […]

  • First Natural Product from Marine Myxobacteria

    Although terrestrial myxobacteria have been extensively studied and are known to produce a range of secondary metabolites with a remarkable variety of unusual structures, their marine counterparts have only recently been discovered. Gabriele M. König and co-workers, University of Bonn, Germany, have isolated a marine myxobacterium from a mud sample from the coast of the island Prerow, Germany. Analysis showed that […]
