Identification of Galeterone's mechanism of action leading to novel treatment therapies for castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC)
Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC) or Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer (HRPC), is a type of prostate cancer that typically recurs after administering androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). The need for effective therapies for these difficult to treat cancers is gaining prominence in the prostate cancer market. The global CRPC market is poised...

Fc-folate conjugate for the treatment of triple negative breast cancer
Approximately 13% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer according to the American Cancer Society. That makes breast cancer the second leading cause of cancer death in women right behind lung cancer. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) represents about 10 – 20% of all breast cancers. Triple negative refers to cancer cells...

Using nanotechnology to target aggressive cancers with a novel small molecule inhibitor of the DNA damage tolerance pathway
Background: Nanotechnology is emerging as a promising tool to target cancer cells. Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) are preferentially taken up by cancer cells when injected into the blood stream and their safety has been demonstrated in human clinical trials. WSU researchers have designed a unique nanoparticle conjugate that combines a GNP with a small molecule...

Inhibitors of Matrix Metalloproteinases
Wayne State University researchers and academic collaborators have prepared the first reported mechanism-based inhibitors for matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). One of the novel compounds (SB-3CT) shows selectivity for the gelatinases (two members of the MMP family), which have been implicated in various pathological conditions including, but not...

Novel Prenyl Transferase Inhibitors
A series of farnesol and geranylgeraniol analogs that block the prenylation of proteins in cells. The diphosphate derivatives of these compounds are potent inhibitors of protein prenyltransferases in vitro. One allylfarnesol compound specifically inhibits the farnesylation of proteins and one allylgeranylgeraniol compound specifically inhibits the...
