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...

IMAGING TUMORS USING PHOSPHOAMIDATE DERIVATIVES OF FAU
TechnologyPhosphoramidate derivatives of a furanosylurical analog (FAU-PA) have been developed which can effectively deliver intracellular FAU monophosphate. This results in improved formation of nucleoside triphosphates and higher incorporation into DNA and can be used for imaging and to treat cancers. When labeled with F-18 it may function as a P...

Dual action nanocarrier combining CXCR4 antagonist and polyplex gene delivery for treatment of metastatic cancer and other diseases
Novel bio-reducible polymer compositions which combine the ability to act as a CXCR4 antagonist and simultaneously provide enhanced gene delivery through the formation of inert nanocarrier polyplexes have been developed. As would be expected for biodegradable polymers, the cytotoxicity of these nanocarrier compositions are very low with measured IC...
