Category(s): Therapeutics & Vaccines
While antibody therapeutics have proven to be successful in recent years, they are not without drawbacks. The large size of antibodies can prevent their effective use against certain cancers, as well as prevent them from crossing the blood-brain barrier. Additionally, many antibodies require post-translational modifications and must be produced in ...

A method to identify modulators for regulatory T cell functions
Docket # T4518 Technology OverviewMaintenance of tolerance to self-antigens is essential for the prevention of autoimmunity. This process is known to involve specific regulatory T cells (Treg) and the expression of the forkhead family transcription factor, FOXP3. FOXP3 is a “sufficient” regulator of the development and function of peri...

Therapy for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) targeting the epitope structure of the disease –inducing antibody
Technology OverviewRoughly 12 million patients are exposed to heparin annually and up to 1% of these patients will develop heparin-induced thrombocytopenia/thrombosis (HIT), a life-threatening complication where patients make antibodies that bind to the heparin/PF4 complex, resulting in thrombosis and thrombocytopenia. The Greene lab has identified...

Her2/Neu Inhibitors for Cancer Therapy and Molecular Imaging
Cancer affects approximately 10 million people globally, with breast and lung cancer accounting for 25% of cancer incidences.Assuming over expression of Her2 is responsible for 25% of the breast cancer and lung cancer, and then the estimated market is about one million. The estimated price of Lapatinib, a small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor, i...
