Novel Oncolytic Herpes Simplex Virus (oHSV) for Cancer Treatment
­ Researchers from UTHealth have developed a novel oncolytic viral therapy, oHSV-shPKR, which can inhibit tumor cells’ antiviral PKR activity, and increase oncolytic virus infection and replication in both oncolytic viral-resistant and sensitive cancer cells. This novel oHSV-shPKR therapy can significantly increase the anti-tumor immune response...

Monoclonal antibodies against human and mouse leptin for therapeutic and diagonostic use.
BackgroundLeptin is a hormone produced by adipocytes and is elevated in obesity. The congenital lack of leptin results in obesity and the metabolism field widely accepts the concept. Upon cloning of the leptin gene, the original hope was that leptin would act as a break for further food intake and a trigger to increase energy expenditure. The hope was...

Monoclonal antibodies against human endotrophin for therapeutic and diagonostic use.
BackgroundStudies have shown that endotrophin, the carboxy-terminal cleavage product of the COL6α3 chain, has potent effects on transformed mammary ductal epithelial cells in rodents. It is abundantly expressed in adipose tissue and is a chemoattractant for macrophages, exerts effects on endothelial cells and enhances the progression through epithelial-mesenchymal...

Improved Antibody-Drug Conjugate Linker Compositions and Methods of Use
Faculty members at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston have developed a novel chemical linker for constructing antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). While traditional ADC linkers can only load a single payload molecule, the developed linker has the ability to load two identical or different drug payloads. Doubling the number of payloads...

Human Amniotic Fluid Supernatant as a Therapeutic Agent for Hyperproliferative and Inflammatory Skin Conditions.
Keratinocytes are a major cell type in the epidermis. However, keratin proliferation and dysregulation can lead to many keratin associated diseases or disorders, including hyperproliferative skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema, and keratosis, scaring or suboptimal wound healing. Faculty members at the University of Texas Health Science Center at...

Recombinant Proteins for the Treatment of Intracerebral Hemorrhage
BackgroundIntracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a devastating form of stroke, with the highest mortality of all stroke subtypes. Rapid accumulation of blood and immune cells result in oxidative stress, inflammation, and the accumulation of toxic hemolytic products at the site of the stroke, leading to significant injury to the brain. There are no effective...
