Chimeric Antigen Receptors For Phagocytosis (Car-P)

UCSF researchers have engineered a chimeric antigen receptor for phagocytosis (CAR-P) that promotes engulfment of cancer cells.

T Cell Signature Predictive of Clinical Outcome with Immunomodulatory Treatment

Biomarkers to predict responsiveness to anti-CTLA-4 antibodies

Novel Tumor-targeting Virus for Cancer Therapy

UCSF researchers have developed a novel engineered virus that specifically targets tumor cells using a knottin moiety, to effectively eliminate a number of cancer types.

NOVEL TUMOR SELECTIVE INTERNALIZING ANTIBODIES

Novel human monoclonal antibodies recognize a cell surface antigen that has limited normal tissue expression but is highly overexpressed in several types of cancers, including mesothelioma, melanoma, head and neck cancer, lung cancer, glioblastoma multiforme, pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, skin cancer and testicular cancer. The antibodies can block tumor invasion, self-renewal and have potential to modulate immune effector cell function.

Potent TMEM16A Small Molecule Treatment for Inflammatory and Reactive Airway Diseases, Asthma, Hypertension, Pain and Cancer

A novel class of 2-acylamino-cycloalkylthiophene-3-carboxylic acid arylamides (AACTs) as potent TMEM16A inhibitors

Novel Compounds that Target Her3

UCSF researchers have developed a new class of small molecule ligands that specifically target HER3, a receptor tyrosine kinase implicated in numerous cancers.

Liquid Biopsy Diagnostic for Precursor Lesions of Pancreatic Cancer

These highly specific biomarkers distinguish potentially malignant mucinous cysts from benign nonmucinous cysts in the pancreas to help diagnose precursor lesions of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. The biomarkers can be detected through enzymatic assays with exceptional accuracy and sensitivity.

Novel Methodology To Convert Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scan Data To Be Used In Proton Beam Therapy

This invention is a novel model that uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) information to more accurately determine the irradiation area using proton beam therapy (PBT) for oncological treatment.

Bispecific Antibodies for Detection and Treatment of Cancers Associated with EGFR Overexpression

This invention identifies novel bispecific antibodies that can be used to detect and/or treat various cancers that overexpress EGFR family of proteins.

Novel Radiotracers for Imaging Glucocorticoid Receptor in Treatment-resistant Cancer Patients

UCSF researchers have invented novel radiotracers that allow imaging of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) expression using positron emission tomography (PET) in patients with treatment-resistant solid cancer, including prostate, breast, ovarian and lung cancer.

A Novel Method to Generate Specific and Permanent Macromolecular Covalent Inhibitors

UCSF researchers have invented a novel method to generate covalent macromolecular inhibitors. This strategy allows a peptide inhibitor to bind to its target protein specifically and irreversibly through proximity-enabled bioreactivity.

Omnidirectional MRI Catheter Resonator for Interventional Procedures

This invention describes an orientation-independent device that can create bright and highly localized signal enhancement during magnetic resonance imaging.

A Mouse Model of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection for Drug Discovery

UCSF researchers have generated and validated a K14-HPV16 transgenic mouse model, in which transgene expression produces neoplastic progression that fully resembles the gynecological and other epithelial dysplastic lesions induced by high risk HPVs. This model offers an invaluable tool for studying HPV infection and developing new drugs for HPV treatment.

Unconstrained Radiosurgery with Greatly Improved Dosage Fall Off

This invention describes a novel approach to radiosurgery that removes current constrains on stereotactic radiosurgery to reduce exposure of healthy brain tissue to radiation, thereby minimizing off-target brain damage.

A Real-time Intraoperative Fluorescent Imaging Device for Guided Surgical Excision of Microscopic Residual Tumors

This novel real-time imaging device can provide precise and rapid pathological imaging information of the tumor area by utilizing fluorescent or luminescent markers within the body to ensure complete surgical resection.

Novel Software for Generating Attenuation Correction Maps with MRI for PET Reconstruction

This invention can accurately and rapidly map patient bone structure and classify all tissue types such as fatty soft tissue, water soft tissue, lung tissue, bone, and air within a single scan using novel MRI acquisition and reconstruction techniques.

Novel Compounds Targeting LRH-1 for Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Type II Diabetes, Triple Negative Breast Cancer & Pancreatic Cancer

This technology contains a method for modulating the activity of the nuclear receptor LRH-1 with identified small molecule compounds that may be developed to treat inflammatory bowel disease, Type II diabetes, triple negative breast cancer and pancreatic cancer.

Molecular Diagnosis And Classification Of Malignant Melanoma

These novel sets of biomarkers predict the five year survival rate of melanoma patients.

A Novel Therapeutic Target and Diagnostic/Prognostic Marker for Lung Adenocarcinoma

This invention identifies a novel non-coding RNA (ncRNA) transcript as a potential diagnostic and prognostic marker for lung adenocarcinoma. Furthermore, inhibitors of this novel ncRNA might hold therapeutic potential.

Therapeutic Heat Shock Protein Inhibitors for Anticancer Therapy

Small molecule inhibitors of Heat Shock Protein-70 (HSP70) that target an allosteric site as anticancer agents

Plasma Biomarkers for Monitoring Cancer Chemotherapy Efficacy

Highly sensitive protein biomarkers that can be used to monitor the extent of apoptosis in order to optimize chemotherapy regimen in cancer patients

TUMOR SELECTIVE MACROPINOCYTOSIS-DEPENDENT RAPIDLY INTERNALIZING ANTIBODIES

This invention establishes a novel method of therapeutic delivery to target tumor cells by macropinocytosis.

Methods And Reagents For Live Biopsy

This invention identifies a set of antibodies that allow direct imaging of immune cells in a tumor biospecimen.

Novel ELISA assay to detect SULF2 in patient samples

This ELISA technique detects Sulfatase2 (SULF2), an extracellular heparan sulfate-degrading enzyme that is overexpressed in many cancers. Furthermore, this technique can potentially serve as a diagnostic for cirrhosis.

A Novel Tumor Targeting Strategy for Cancer Chemotherapy

A novel small molecule tumor-activated prodrug technology that produces a therapeutic index multiplying effect, leading to reduced drug-associated toxicity and improved efficacy in cancer patients.
