microRNA mimics and inhibitors to modulate genotoxic stress for cancer and aging related diseases.
MicroRNAs (miRs) can regulate gene expression and are often critical players in controlling cellular DNA repair mechanisms. miRs can therefore provide an alternative therapeutic strategy for treatment of cancer and other diseases associated with altered miR expression and/or DNA damage repair.Researchers at OHSU have identified a cohort of miRs tha...

DRĪ±1-MOG-35-55 treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury
Treatment of traumatic brain injury is limited to medications to limit secondary damage to the brain, surgery to relieve pressure on the brain, and rehabilitation. The OHSU discovery uses a proprietary construct comprised of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DRα1 domain linked covalently to mouse (m)MOG-35-55 peptide (DRα1-MOG-35-55 con...

Detection and treatment of bladder cancer using bioconjugates that target tumor cell surface
SummaryGiven the prevalence of bladder cancer in the United States, it is surprising that only a limited number of treatments exist for this disease. To address this unmet need, researchers at Oregon Health & Science University have developed a targeted, novel bioconjugate for use in detecting and treating early stage, non-invasive bladder can...

Compounds that bind macrophage migration inhibitory factor
Compositions for recombinant polypeptides derived from CD74, a chaperone that assists with the folding and trafficking of Class II MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex), that compete for binding of the CD74 ligand macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF). Possible use as a therapeutic to block inflammation driven by MIF interactions with CD 74...

The use of PD-1, LAG-3 and TIGIT as biomarkers of HIV persistence during antiretroviral therapy
Value Proposition: Antiretroviral therapy (ART) reduces HIV replication but does not cure HIV. The persistence of HIV in a small pool of long-lived latently infected resting CD4 T cells is a major barrier to viral eradication. Identification of cellular markers that are preferentially expressed at the surface of latently infected cells paves the wa...
