Targeted Drug Delivery for Spinal Cord Injury
Technology Summary: WSU researchers have developed a new nanoparticle-drug conjugate for treating cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) that can restore respiratory function to the paralyzed hemi diaphragm. Using the nano-conjugate enables targeted delivery of the drug directly to the respiratory centers resulting in dramatically lower effective dosag...

Repurposing AKT Inhibitors for the Treatment of Protein Misfolding and Protein Trafficking Diseases
WSU researchers have generated a reagent to understand the degenerative processes occurring in Pelizaeus‑Merzbacher disease (PMD) and to study the intracellular signaling that occurs because of these diseased processes. They have deduced that the use of AKT inhibitors may reduce disease severity in patients with a wide range of degenerative ...

Novel Hybrid Series of Compound Derived from 2-Aminotetralin and Piperazine Based Derivatives: Characterization for D1, D2, D3, D4 and other Serotonin Receptor Subtypes Binding
A series of compounds derived from 2-aminotetralin and piperazine fragments have been synthesized, which exhibit high CNS activity in vivo and in vitro. Some of the selected lead compounds have exhibited potent in vivo activity in a Parkinson?s disease animal model with long extended duration of action. In particular, these compounds show high...
