High potency recombinant IGF-1 biologic
Optimized IGF-1 isoforms have been developed with improved potency in producing muscle hypertrophy. Problem: Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) is a key regulator of muscle development and growth. However, the complexity of IGF-1 activity is modulated by extensive alternative splicing and glycosylation. Solution: A former Penn researcher,...

Antibody-like therapeutic platform with effector function
Technology Overview: 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...

Immunotoxin Therapeutic Targets Epithelial Derived Cancers
Immunotoxin chimeras of DNaseI and cytolethal distending toxin (CdtB subunit) are an effective therapeutic against epithelial tumors. Technology Overview: Immortalized epithelioid cell lines are sensitive to CdtB, whereas cells of mesenchymal, or ectomesenchymal origin are relatively resistant. Unique chimeras of the cdtB gene and human type I...
