Recombinant fusion proteins and complement inhibitors targeting P-selectin, and therapeutic and diagnostic application
Technology: Inventors at MUSC have designed fusion proteins to treat inflammatory and other related pathologies by binding p-selectin (PSel) and modulating complement. Although targeting complement has shown great promise in treating numerous pathologies which has also led to the approval of multiple drugs (e.g. eculizumab, Berinert, Cinryze), targeting...

Advancements of 599 peptide carrier design through stereochemical and/or amino acid modifications
Technology: Researchers at MUSC have developed a cell-penetrating peptide (CPP) specifically designed to overcome challenges associated with small interfering RNA (siRNA)-drug delivery for cancer treatment. Investigators previously generated the 599 peptide that silenced the CIP2A oncogene and suppressed cancer tumor growth in vivo (Figure 1). Figure...

N-aroylanthranilic acids and derivatives as inhibitors of bacterial class B transpeptidases
Technology: MUSC inventors identified a new chemical scaffold (N-aroylanthranilic acids and derivatives) as inhibitors of various class B penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs). The novel molecules showed high potency of PBP inhibition. Antimicrobial assays against antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea strain FA19 and H041 showed significant growth inhibition...

Motion-Activated, Closed-loop Non-invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation as a Neurorehabilitation Tool
Technology: Surgeons and researchers at MUSC have created a non-invasive, motion-activated, closed-loop vagus nerve simulation (VNS) device that enhances neuroplasticity to accelerate motor restoration in post-stroke rehabilitation. The device couples VNS with limb motion to provide stimulation simultaneously with movement, enhancing the effects of...

CD38 mediated metabolic axis in anti-tumor T cell immunotherapy
Technology: MUSC researchers have identified T cells with reduced surface expression of NADase CD38 exhibited intrinsically higher NAD+ levels, enhanced oxidative phosphorylation, higher glutaminolysis and altered mitochondrial dynamics that vastly improved tumor control. Inventors identified combining the culture conditions of Th17ILβ+TGFβ...

Click Chemistry Probes for Specific Targeting of Sialic Acid Tumor Antigens
Technology: Researchers at MUSC have identified methods for selectively modifying linked sialic acid or polysialic acid with bioorthagonal reaction schemes having applications broad applications in drug delivery. This is achieved by exposing a 2,3 linked sialic acid and/or a 2,8 linked polysialic acid to condensing reagents under suitable reaction conditions....

Asymmetric Dimethylarginine (ADMA) as a Bio-marker for Early-Stage Diagnostic of Cerebrovascular Diseases
Technology: MUSC researchers have identified Asymmetric Dimethylarginine (ADMA) as a novel early-stage biomarker to diagnose brain vascular pathologies associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), vascular cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID), and multiple sclerosis (MS). Data gathered shows that Tg-SwDI mice, the most common model for AD-associated...

Blocking GARP (LRRC32) cleavage and Its Application in Immunotherapy
Technology: Researchers at MUSC have developed a method and peptide composition (the “T250 peptide”) for treating cancer by inhibiting Glycoprotein-A Repetitions Predominant Protein (GARP) cleavage and thus impeding the activation of Transforming Growth Factor-Beta (TGF-β) – a growth factor that suppresses T-cell mediated anti-cancer...

Combination Therapy with Mesenchymal Stem Cells and the Caveolin-1 Scaffolding Domain Peptide as a Novel Therapy for Systemic Sclerosis
Technology: MUSC researchers propose a novel therapy for systemic sclerosis (SSc) combining autologous patient-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and the caveolin-1 scaffolding domain peptide (CSD). In a mouse model, this combination significantly improved the efficacy of MSC therapy compared to MSCs alone. Researchers have previously shown efficacy...

Endothelial Progenitor Cell-Derived Exosomes as a Novel Therapeutic in Sepsis
Technology: MUSC researchers have developed a novel therapy to treat sepsis and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) using endothelial progenitor cell-derived (EPC) exosomes, which reduced lung and organ injury, inflammation response, and increased survival rate in a mouse model. Data gathered showed that in a sepsis model, IV administration of...
