Gruthan Bioscience to develop new class of cholesterol-lowering drugs

Gruthan Bioscience, LLC, a Medical University of South Carolina startup based in Charleston, South Carolina, received a Small Business technology Transfer (STTR) award from the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute in August to take the next step in developing a novel class of cholesterol-lowering drugs to treat familial hypercholesterolemia.

The startup was founded by liver researcher Stephen Duncan, Ph.D., SmartState Chair in Regenerative Medicine and chairman of the Department of Regenerative Medicine and Cell Biology at MUSC.

Patients with familial hypercholesterolemia have very high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), colloquially known as “bad cholesterol.” The receptor that should bind to the cholesterol and remove it from the blood is mutated and no longer functions.

A subset of these patients inherit mutations in the LDL receptor from both parents and are at high risk of developing severe and deadly cardiovascular disease

Trump said his order is aimed at combating a “pernicious” ideology taking root in the U.S. that “some people, simply on account of their race or sex, are oppressors; and that racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans.”

Wake elementary students could start daily, in-person classes in November. See the plan.

Wake County elementary students could return for daily, in-person classes in November after having not been in school buildings since March.

Wake County school administrators recommended Wednesday having PreK-5 students and K-12 special-education students in regional programs start Oct. 26 with a rotation of one week of in-person classes and two weeks of online courses. Those students would shift to daily, in-person classes on Nov. 16.

The plan also has middle school and high school students start the three-week rotation on Nov. 9. But Superintendent Cathy Moore said that grades 6-12 could stay with only getting online courses for the rest of the semester, which ends in January.

The school board will vote on the plan Tuesday. The vote comes as parents are asking for a return to in-person instruction while administrators and teachers say it’s not safe to return yet.
