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 …

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…

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…

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…

Novel compositions of nanoparticles for nucleic acid therapeutic delivery
TS-040254 — Novel lipid-based nanoparticles that utilize a surfactant to improve self-assembly and stability. Finalized particles can be used for delivery of nucleic acids such as oligonucleotides and plasmid DNA.
Lipid-based nanoparticles (LNPs) have been extensively utilized in nucleic acid delivery. However, there are a number of challenges associated with LNP formulation. It is difficult to make sub-100-nm LNPs with a high nucleic acid concentration by traditional self-assembly methods. LNP synthesis ty…

Pyrrolopyrimidine Derivatives as Mps1/TTK Kinase Inhibitors for Cancer Therapy
TS-037724 — Small molecules for targeted treatment of triple negative breast cancer and other aggressive phenotypes.
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous group of tumors which can be subdivided based on histopathological features, genetic alterations, and gene-expression profiles. Approximately 50-60% of all breast cancer patients and two-thirds of postmenopausal breast cancer patients have estrogen receptor positiv…

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…
