October is Breast Cancer Awareness month

An international effort aiming to alert the public to the prevalence of breast cancer. Breast cancer is, in South Africa as well as worldwide, one of the most common types of cancer and is the most commonly occurring cancer amongst South African women. According to statistics sourced from the National Cancer Registry, breast cancer mainly affects older women, with an estimated lifetime risk of 1 in 27. Breast cancer also affects men, although the lifetime risk is significantly lower affecting 1 in 763 men.

Understanding Glycans in COVID-19 Drug Design

SARS-CoV-2, more commonly known as COVID-19 or simply the coronavirus, has consumed the medical and scientific research community for the majority of 2020. In particular, the foci have been a search for a vaccine to prevent illness and therapeutics to treat the critically ill. A recent article in GEN makes the point that the secret to a vaccine for COVID-19 or therapeutic may lie with glycans.
