Combined Application of Chimeric toxins and Saponin

31.08.2012
</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> <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. (07/2004) is granted soon<br> PCT application (07/2005)<br> Pending patent applications in Europe, Canada, USA and Japan <br><br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin<br> Freie Universität Berlin

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Researchers develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface

What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...
