Transgenic Mice Carrying Wild Type Human Her-2 Under the Whey Acidic Promoter
This technology is an animal model designed to help pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries develop Her-2 based vaccines or immunotherapeutic agents. Background & Unmet Need: Her-2 positive breast cancer is a breast cancer that is positive for a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (Her-2).  Presence of Her-2 promotes the growth...

A Gene Knockout Mouse Model to Study Lung Disease and a Lung Disease Drug Target
Our researchers have created a gene knockout mouse model that lacks the cytochrome c oxidase subunit IV-2 in order to study the gene’s effects on controlling asthma. Background & Unmeet Need: Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways that affects 155 million people of all ages worldwide.  Cytochome c oxidase (CcO) is a multi-subunit enzyme located...

Establishment of a Prostate Carcinoma Bone Tumor Model in Mice
This technology is a new tumorigenic cell line from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3.  These cell lines, known as PC-3/IF, when implanted in the femurs of nude mice, provide a xenograft tumor model of bone metastatic prostate carcinoma.  The PC-3/IF cell lines are highly tumorigenic, with tumor cells replacing the marrow cells in the bone...

Establishment of a Metastatic Prostate Carcinoma Tumor Model in Mice
This technology is a new tumorigenic cell line from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3.  These cell lines, known as PC-3/PI, are highly tumorigenic when implanted in the prostate of nude mice, providing a xenograft tumor model of prostate carcinoma.  In this model, lymph node metastases form from the primary tumor, similar to what occurs in...

Establishment of a New Renal Cell Carcinoma Cell Line and a New Experimental Renal Tumor Model
This technology is a tumor cell line from a primary papillary renal cell carcinoma that, when implanted in the kidney of nude mice, provides a xenograft tumor model of human renal cell carcinoma. Background & Unmet Need: Renal cell carcinoma, which occurs in the parenchyma of the kidney, is the most common type of renal cancer, accounting for approximately...
