A method to induce ferroptosis and to downregulate androgen receptor/androgen receptor splice variant in prostate cancer cells
Prostate cancer (PCa) effects approximately three million men in the United States every year. About 10-20% of the cases of prostate cancer are castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). This form of PCa is highly resistant to what Is known as androgen depletion therapy and is often fatal. All types of PCa are sensitive to androgen receptor signaling...

Drugs that disrupt interactions between ELK1 and the androgen receptor to suppress growth of both early stage and castration resistant prostate cancer
Background:Prostate cancer is the second-most commonly diagnosed cancer among men and the fifth most common cause of male cancer death worldwide. Although tumors are often initially sensitive to medical or surgical therapies that decrease levels of testosterone, continued disease progression generally represents a transition to the lethal variant. In...

Topical treatment with TGFbeta3 to facilitate skin and corneal wound healing in diabetic patients
Background: Diabetes affects approximately 170 million people worldwide, including 20.8 million in the USA, and by 2030 these numbers are projected to double. Diabetics often experience slow or limited wound healing. Slow wound healing allows longer time for the development of infections and can contribute to the formation of bed sores and ulcers....

Long non-protein-coding RNA molecules as therapeutics for epilepsy.
Long Non-Coding RNA Molecules as Therapeutics for Epilepsy WSU Tech#: 12-1089 Technology Summary: Long Non-coding RNA (lncRNA) were first described in 2002 from mouse, making this a relatively new technology. lncRNA transcripts far exceed the number of protein coding mRNAs in the mammalian transcriptome, but in lower copy numbers. Inventors have...

CARP-1/CCAR1 Functional Mimetics (CFMs): Novel small molecule suppressors of human breast cancer cell growth.
BackgroundCARP-1 (Cell cycle and apoptosis regulator protein) is a regulator of cell growth signaling. CARP-1 plays an important role in apoptosis (cell death) induction in human breast cancer (HBC) cells in the presence of the chemotherapy agent Adriamycin. The researchers have found that CARP-1 inhibits cell growth by binding with the anaphase...

Topical IL-1Ra (anakinra) in the form of gel to treat persistent diabetic skin and corneal wounds
BackgroundAnakinra (aka. Kineret) is a recombinant human IL-1Ra that was developed by Amgen. It is currently used to treat moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis, but also treats neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). Anakinra is given as an IV dose and the drug is no longer under patent. The properties of Anakinra are...
