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...

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...

Microvascular Pericytes are Adult Pluripotential Stem Cells
WSU researchers have identified capillary pericytes, a cell type found in the central nervous system, as having pluripotent stem cell capabilities, which could be important to future research studies and therapeutic strategies. Background & Unmet Need: The presence of adult multipotent i.e., stem cells, has been demonstrated in a large number of tissues,...
