Anti-GARP Monoclonal Antibodies for Cancer Therapy
TS-057778 — A novel monoclonal antibody (PIIO-1) to be used in combination with immune-checkpoint blockers. PIIO-1 augments CD8+ T cells-induced anti-tumor immunity and overcomes ICB resistance by disrupting transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β), the center of a pathway significantly implicated in solid tumors and hematological malignancies. PIIO-1 inhibits TGFβ locally via a docking receptor, avoiding adverse and unforeseen side effects.
Although immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) has emerged as a promising cancer immunotherapy, a majority of tumors fail to respond to ICB. A potential mechanism driving this failed response is the accumulation of TGF-β1 in the tumor microenvironment (TME), which drives immune dysfunction by indu…

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…

Papaverine Derivatives that are Effective Hypoxic Tumor Radiosensitizers
TS-041504 — Dr. Nicholas Denko and colleagues at The Ohio State University have developed papaverine derivatives that can be used as metabolic radiosensitizers in hypoxic tumors. The compounds make cancer cells more sensitive to radiation therapy without the concomitant toxicity issues that can occur as a side-effect of papaverine.
Radiation therapy is a common treatment for cancerous tumors. However, environmental conditions in the tumor can influence sensitivity to radiation therapy, and some cells are resistant to treatment. For example, hypoxic cells (those with low levels of oxygen) in tumors such as lung, glioblastoma,…
