An Orally Active, Selective Inhibitor of CD4+ T-Cell Activation That Blunts Left-Ventricular Remodeling and Improves Cardiac Function during Chronic Heart Failure
TS-057777 — A novel orally-active drug molecule that can inhibit pathological CD4+ T-cells at clinically translatable doses and, blunts progressive cardiac dysfunction and left-ventricular (LV) remodeling during Heart Failure (HF).
HF afflicts ~6.5 million adults in US with 50% mortality in first 5 years. It has an estimated market size of $4.2B USD in US alone with a forecasted CAGR of 23% from 2018-2028. Current HF treatments are mostly aimed at alleviating symptoms rather than treatment, resulting in progressive cardiac d…

Reduction in Incidence and Severity of Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease (aGVHD) via CRISPR-Cas9 Deletion of the miR-155 Host Gene (MIR155HG) in Primary Human T Cells
TS-057739 — CRISPR/Cas 9 mediated targeting of MIR155HG in primary human T cells creates genomic deletions that disrupt transcription of mature microRNA-155 (miR-155, a miR associated with inflammation). Applying this treatment to donor T cells prior to allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) when treating hematological malignancies and other primary bone marrow disorders can prevent the development of aGVHD in patients.
The Need More than 8,000 patients receive allo-HSCT annually in the US alone as a cure for hematologic malignancies and other primary bone marrow disorders. However, the major barrier for the success of allo-HSCT is the high incidence of aGVHD and its associated morbidity and mortality. Acute GVHD…

Immunomodulating agents engineered from Notch receptor ligand extracellular domains
TS-036760 — Immunomodulating agents have been engineered from Notch receptor ligand extracelluar domains. These are useful for stimulating the immune system.
The Notch signaling pathway is important in immune cell differentiation and maturation. As a result, it has been shown that Notch receptor signaling can promote or suppress adaptive immune responses depending on the particular ligands and receptors involved. A set of native protein-inspired biolog…
