Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have developed a dendritic cell vaccine for treating multiple cancer types. The NCI seeks licensing and/or co-development research collaborations to bring this invention to the public.
The invention is a novel methodology for predicting a mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cancer patient’s survival prognosis. This information is important in helping determine the best course of treatment for the patient.
Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) developed a DNA vaccine using conserved elements of HIV-1 Gag, administered in a prime-boost vaccination protocol. Two of the HIV Gag CE DNA vectors have been tested in a rhesus macaque model. Priming with the Gag CE vaccine and boosting with full length Gag DNA showed increased immune responses when compared to vaccination with Gag alone. Researchers seek licensing and/or co-development research collaborations for development this DNA vaccine.
Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) developed a multiplex assay to determine the efficacy of apoptosis-related drugs targeting the Bcl2 family of proteins or aid in the selection of cancer patients likely to respond. The NCI seeks partners for co-development or licensees for commercialization of novel immunoassays for determining or predicting patient response to cancer therapy.
Inventors at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have developed chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) that target two B cell surface antigens, CD19 and CD22, improving treatment of B-cell malignancies, such as acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). NCI is actively seeking parties interested in licensing this invention to commercialize the bicistronic CAR construct targeting CD19 and CD22 for immunotherapy.
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) seeks licensees and/or research co-development partners for the development of an injectable contraceptive for women with a pharmaceutical formulation containing levonorgestrel butanoate (LB), a steroidal progestin.
Researchers at the National Cancer Institute’s Biopharmaceutical Development Program recently developed massively parallel sequencing methods for virus-derived therapeutics such as viral vaccines and oncolytic immunotherapies, for which the NCI seeks licensees or co-development collaborations.
Researchers at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) seek licensing and/or co-development research collaborations to further develop, evaluate or commercialize the software, Mobile Personalized Assessment & Learning for Addiction Treatment and Behavioral Modification. NIDA researchers developed this software for use in treating substance use disorders (drugs, alcohol, smoking) that provides personalized feedback to users.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development seeks research co-development partners and/or licensees for the development and use of androgenic compounds as contraceptives and/or hormonal therapeutics.
NCI scientists developed a method that uses urine samples to detect early-stage cancers and that could supplement low-dose computed tomography (LD-CT) for early-stage cancer detection, and significantly decrease expensive false negative/false positive results. The NCI seeks co-developers or licensees to commercialize this technology.
This technology provides improved processes for production and purification of nucleic acid-containing compositions, such as non-naturally occurring viruses, for example, recombinant polioviruses that can be employed as oncolytic agents. Some of the improved processes relate to improved processes for producing viral DNA template.
The National Eye Institute seeks research and co-development partners and/or licensees to: (1) advance the production and uses of the new RNA preparation method; (2) manufacture reagent kits for testing in patients with suspected COVID-19 and other DNA/RNA viruses, and (3) manufacture reagent kits for patient biomarker profiles and inherited disease diagnostics.
This invention identifies two polymorphic genetic markers in the SLCO1B3 (formerly SLC21A8) gene, called 334T>G and 699G>A, that can be measured in genomic DNA obtained from a blood sample to predict survival from diagnosis of prostate cancer in that individual patient.
Researchers at the National Institutes of Health identified a collection of TCRs that exclusively recognize the common hotspot driver mutations in KRAS antigen, expressed by a variety of epithelial cancers, including pancreatic, colorectal and lung cancer. The mutated KRAS variants are recognized by the TCRs in the context of specific Class I/Class II HLA alleles. These TCRs can be used for a variety of experimental therapeutic, diagnostic and research applications.
Researchers at the National Cancer Institute identified a collection of TCRs that exclusively recognize the common hotspot driver mutations in p53 tumor suppressor, expressed by a variety of human cancers, including colorectal, breast and lung cancers. The mutated p53 variants are recognized by the TCRs in the context of specific Class I/Class II HLA alleles. These TCRs can be used for a variety of experimental therapeutic, diagnostic and research applications.'
