Mutants and Drug Conjugates of R-Spondin Polypeptides for Cancer Therapy
­R-spondins (RSPOs) are secreted proteins with critical roles in cancer development through binding to LGRs and RNF43/ZNRF3 and potentiating Wnt signaling. Various RSPO mutants were discovered that bind to LGRs but no longer function in Wnt signaling. Fc fusion protein of the RSPO mutants, so called RSPO peptibodies, were conjugated with cytotoxic...

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...
