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 …

ReScribe: Transcription factors for reprogramming of diseased musculoskeletal related cells
TS-046978 — Transcription factors that can upregulate desired genes in diseased tissue to reprogram diseased cells, thereby reversing the disease and creating healthy non-diseased phenotype genes. These transcription factors would be especially useful in musculoskeletal diseases such as back pain and osteoarthritis.
Musculoskeletal diseases including osteoarthritis and chronic low back pain, are debilitating, painful, and often difficult to treat. Intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration, as an example, is strongly associated with low back pain, a leading cause of disability worldwide. According to the American…

mRNA sequence engineering and uses thereof
TS-045448 — Maximized mRNA lifespan and translation for mRNA-based therapy applications.
Many diseases emerge from irregularities that occur during protein synthesis. While limited therapies exist to deliver mature proteins to compensate for these errors, protein therapy by direct protein delivery has limited efficiency. This is due to difficulty in controlling the volume of delivered…

Improving immunotherapy with mRNA delivery
TS-045426 — The central mission of cancer immunotherapy treatments is to aid the immune system in detecting and degrading cancer cells. For twenty years, the use of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) as anti-tumor drugs has been successful in managing cancer disease and increasing patient lifespan. These treatments…

Electrophiles for Re-activation of Aged Acetylcholine Esterase
TS-044619 — Organophosphorus (OP) poisons including sarin, VX, and novichoks are lethal agents of chemical warfare. Their toxicity is due to their direct inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE), an enzyme that is vital to the nervous system via regulation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh). AChE in…

Nanoparticle Composition for Nucleic Acid Delivery
TS-044109 — Lipid nanoparticles (LNs) usable for the delivery of therapeutic compositions, including, but not limited to nucleic acids (NAs).
Nucleic Acid (NA) based therapies are used to inhibit gene expression. Lipid nanoparticles (LNs) are capable of carrying these therapies into cells. However, this delivery requires overcoming several physiological barriers. For instance, one barrier is the acidic endosome conditions within the cel…

Live vaccine candidate for Chagas disease
TS-044084 — Trypanosoma cruzi is a protozoan parasite that causes Chagas disease, a PRV-eligible disease that is the leading cause of heart failure in Latin America. Due to migration of infected hosts from endemic regions, Chagas disease is also a growing public health concern in the USA and other migrant des…

Translational Activators of the Glutamate Transporter EAAT2 to Treat Neurological and Psychiatric Diseases
TS-043938 — Small molecule technology with novel translational activation mechanism.
Glutamate is a major neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system (CNS) and essential for normal brain function including cognition, memory, and learning. However, the extracellular concentration of glutamate must remain below excitotoxic levels (~ 1 μM) to avoid overstimulation of …

Engineered Cells for Treatment of Animal Metabolic Disorders
TS-041976 — The implantation of engineered thermogenic cells for treating metabolic disease and obesity in animals.
Obesity remains one of the main underlying causes for many malignancies in domestic animals such as cats, dogs, and horses. From a veterinary perspective, obesity dramatically increases the risk of cancer, one of the leading causes of death in domesticated animals. Other diseases correlated with o…

Method to improve efficiency and specificity of human tumor targeting and elimination by using a combination of split & splice protein toxins and oncolytic viruses
TS-040838 — Novel strategy to improve efficiency and specificity of tumor treatment via combinative use of a split & splice protein toxin and oncolytic virus.
In combating malignancies as complex as cancer, researchers and clinicians have created a diverse set of strategies to reduce tumor burden. Oncolytic viruses (OVs) have emerged as a promising means of treating this disease due to their potential to selectively target and effectively kill cancer ce…
