Cellular Vaccine and Method of Inducing an Immune Response in a Subject (formerly referred to as Suicide Gene NSP4 as an Augment for DNA Vaccines)
Technology OverviewOur cytolytic DNA vaccines encode a viral immunogen and a cytolytic protein to induce necrosis in targeted cells resulting in release of a range of damage associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) and cross presentation of the immunogen. This results in increased virus-specific immune responses. The goal is to attract circulating d...

ELISA-On-A-Stick: in vivo detection and measurement of biological materials
Market NeedIn order to understand the role of the immune system in pain, it is essential to monitor the concentration of localized pro-inflammatory cytokines in the spinal cord.Cytokines are the small proteins secreted from cells. They are indicators of the functional status of the human immune system and the biomarkers for many diseases.Certain p...

A novel diagnostic for human carcinomas as the first step towards treatment
Market Need:Unlike most mammals, humans cannot synthesise the sialic acid N glycolylneuraminic acid (NeuGc). Nevertheless, NeuGc is understood to be preferentially taken up by human cancerous cells and subsequently secreted into the blood. Hence, NeuGc represents a specific biomarker for detection of a range of human cancers.Currently available re...

Treatment of atrial fibrillation associated with obesity using endothelin receptor antagonists
Atrial fibrosis prevention in obese and overweight patients Overweight patients are at increased risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial fibrosis. Treatment of this group with endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs) could reduce that risk and obviate the need for more invasive and expensive treatments for atrial fibrillation, such as ablation pr...

A novel early detection biomarker for risk and severity of cardiac fibrosis
Market NeedCardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for the death of 17.1 million people. Currently patients are assessed for risk of heart disease by simple blood test for biomarkers such as cholesterol, troponin and brain natriuretic peptides. However, the predictive value of these biomarkers and hence the ...
