"A diverse range of biochemical and cellular assays are used by medicinal chemists to guide compound optimization. The data collected from these assays influence decisions taken on structure-activity relationship (SAR) campaigns. Therefore, it is paramount that medicinal chemists have a solid understanding of the strengths and limitations of each assay being used to characterize synthesized analogs. This Perspective Article takes a look at assays relevant to Gaucher, Pompei, Wolman, and Fabry disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Cystic Fibrosis."
This study explores the pathways from a nutrition-sensitive agriculture intervention to improved diets of women and young children.

The high rate of SARS-CoV-2 infection poses a serious threat to public health. Previous studies have suggested that SARS-CoV-2 can infect human ovary, the core organ of the female reproductive system. However, it remains unclear which type of ovarian cells are easily infected by SARS-CoV-2 and whether ovarian infectivity differs from puberty to menopause.
