Inhibition of DGAT for the treatment of cancer
TS-049730 — Dysregulated fat metabolism is an established hallmark of cancer cells. However, the disruption of lipid homeostasis in cancer cells remains an elusive target for therapy. Tumor cells acquire abundant fats for rapid cell growth, but how they avoid toxicity from such loading is unknown. An answer t…

Analogues of the Epipolythiodioxopiperazine Alkaloids
TS-047118 — Analogues of verticillin which have more useful drug-like properties than the verticillin parent compounds alone, including increased solubility, absorption, and stability, all while maintaining similar anticancer potency to the original compounds.
Verticillins, which are epipolythiodioxopiperazine (ETP) alkaloids, have shown promising anticancer qualities; these fungal metabolites have exhibited high potency against a variety of tumor cell types, with IC50 values typically in the 10-500 nanomolar range. However, these compounds suffer from …

Multifunctional RNA Nanoparticles and Methods for Treating Cancer
TS-040289 — Three-way junction nanoparticles for delivery of tamoxifen and other therapeutics directly to tumor cells.
Most breast cancers express estrogen receptor alpha (ER α) and antagonists of ER α drugs, such as tamoxifen, have been widely used for their treatment. Unfortunately, up to half of all ER α -positive tumors have intrinsic or acquired endocrine therapy resistance. Recent studies b…

Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis with Small Molecule IL-6/STAT3 Inhibitors
TS-038701 — Small-molecule prodrugs that target IL-6/STAT3 signaling pathway.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS), an unpredictable and disabling autoimmune disease affecting the central nervous system, is the leading cause of non-traumatic neurological disability in young adults. There have been important advances in MS therapy, such as drugs that slow the progression of the disease a…

Methods for generation of TF-targeting chimeric antigen receptors (CARs)-natural killer cells and T cells
TS-038262 — A therapeutic application of neovascular-targeting chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells and NK cells for treating diseases associated with pathological angiogenesis, in which TF is abarrently expressed, such as solid tumors, leukemia, lymphoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), endometriosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Nearly 2,000,000 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed each year in the United States. Available treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy. Recently, cell-based immunotherapy utilizing specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) expressing immune ce…

Phyllanthusmin and acutissimalignan A compound derivatives for anticancer and immunostimulation
TS-037721 — A group of potential antitumor arylnapthalene lactone derivatives, which may be developed as novel anticancer and immunostimulant agents.
Natural products and semi-synthetic derivatives derived from them have been used for anticancer drugs or drug leads for many years. However, side-effects such as myelosuppression and secondary leukemia have been reported. Furthermore, these natural products can be difficult to use for targeting sp…

STAT3 Inhibitors and Their Anti-Cancer Usage
TS-037671 — Novel non-peptidomimetic molecules for use as anti-cancer inhibitors of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3.
The search for more potent drug delivery candidates for cancer therapy remains a challenge within the medical community. Efforts to target cancer at the genetic level have led to numerous discoveries, including the role that constitutive activation of signal transducer and activator of transcripti…

Development of STAT3 dimerization inhibitors for cancers
TS-037569 — The constant activation of Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 3 (STAT3) is frequently detected in many cancer patients with advanced diseases. About 80% of all cancers overexpress STAT3, including solid tumors, lymphoma, and leukemia. Constant activation of STAT3 activities in nonmal…

Targeting EGFL7 in AML
TS-037353 — Treatment of blood cancer with anti-EGFL7 antibody.
Despite recent progress in understanding acute myeloid leukemia (AML) biology and the use of intensive treatments, the long-term overall survival is only 30-40% in younger (<60 years) and <10% in older adult AML patients. This highlights the urgent need for novel therapeutic approaches for a…

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…
