Combined Application of Chimeric toxins and Saponin

06.09.2012
</a><strong>Background</strong><br>

Immunotoxins have to be administered in high doses due to low cytosolic uptake with the consequence of severe side effects. An improvement for immunotoxins was the development of a molecular adapter linking the toxic and targeting moiety. Due to cleavable endosomal and cytosolic peptides the adapter mediates cytosolic trapping of the toxin which leads to reduced side

effects on non-target dells in vitro. <br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer a novel combination therapy that comprises the combined administration of individually non-toxic concentrations of a chimeric toxin and the triterpenoid saponin for an enhanced tumor cell-specific cytotoxic effect while non-target cells are not affected at the effective concentration. The combination therapy could be a new tool for the tumor therapy. Main characteristics are: Lower required doses of immunotoxin, High cytotoxity and high specifity, Reduction of undesired side effects. <br><br> <b>Benefits:</b><ul> <li>Tumor-specific targeting and extinction of tumor cells by chimeric toxins</li> <li>Reduction of undesired adverse effects of systemic applications</li> <li>Combination with saponins enhances rate of immunotoxin uptake and efficiency of chimeric toxin in target cells</li> <li>Combined application allows doses reduction of cytotoxic agent and minimize adverse effects without impairing efficacy</li> <li>Application in cell culture (ex vivo) and in mouse tumor model (in vivo) successfully tested </li></ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> European Patent Applic.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
