FraB as a drug target and FraB inhibitors as Salmonella-specific narrow-spectrum therapeutics
TS-059635 — T2014-282 & T2022-326 A method to discover narrow-spectrum antibiotics of salmonellosis, as well as small molecule inhibitors of Salmonella FraB and a Salmonella probiotic strain to enhance the efficacy of FraB inhibitors.
Non-typhoidal salmonellosis is one of the most significant food-borne diseases, in the United States and globally. There are no vaccines available for human use to prevent this disease, and only broad-spectrum antibiotics available to treat the disease. However, antibiotic resistance is on the ris…

A novel synthetic immunomodulator and an adjuvant for vaccines
TS-038032 — A natural plant product possessing potent immunomodulatory activity, which primes T cell immune responses, and could be used for vaccine development.
While vaccines are commonly used today for a variety of diseases and have proven efficacious for disease prevention, some vaccines do not efficiently activate an immune response. Adjuvants can be included in a given vaccine to potentiate immune activation and improve the quality of the vaccine. Th…

A novel STK1-targeted small molecule as an "antibiotic resistance breaker"
TS-037880 — Inh2-B1 serves as a therapeutically important “antibiotic-resistance-breaker,” which enhances the bactericidal activity of Ceftriaxone/Cefotaxime against highly pathogenic MDRSA infection.
Highly pathogenic and multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus species encompasses methicillin-resistant strains of S. aureus (MDRSA) and S. epidermidis (MDRSE) that have developed resistance to multiple traditional antibiotics, including the 5th generation cephalosporin (Ceftaroline). Because of the re…
