Therapeutic Peptide ND-13 to Prevent Injury from Chronic Kidney Disease
­GW, Tel Aviv, and UGH Pharma researchers developed a small peptide, ND-13, for treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The only current treatment of CKD and end-stage renal disease is renal replacement therapy via dialysis or kidney transplantation. There remains a need to provide alternative therapies for treating kidney disorders. ND-13 contains...

Immunotherapies Targeting SSX2 Peptide Displayed by MHC on Tumors
­Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cells are making headlines with their recent FDA approvals and ability to eradicate cancers. Most CAR T therapies target tumor cells via a tumor associated antigen (TAA). Unfortunately, TAAs are also expressed on non-cancerous tissues, leading to significant risk for patients. SSX2 protein expression is restricted...

Intranasal Oxytocin to Treat Heart Failure
Heart failure (HF) results in imbalance of the cardiac autonomic system, i.e. increased sympathetic activity and decreased parasympathetic activity. The present therapies for heart failure only decrease sympathetic activity and have many side effects. There is no drug or device that restores parasympathetic activity. GW researchers found a new method...

Optimization of Cold Atmospheric Plasma-Stimulated Media for Treatment of Cancer
Previously, GW researchers invented a method to selectively kill cancer cells with cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) while leaving neighboring normal cells intact. In a subsequent study, the researchers showed that similar anti-cancer effects can be achieved indirectly using CAP-stimulated media (CAPSM). Stability of CAPSM (preservation of its anti-cancer...

Intranasal Oxytocin Therapy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a health risk that occurs in 24% of males and 9% of females in the United States. OSA can lead to several cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, arrhythmia, and stroke. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatments often fail due to low compliance. GW Researchers developed an intranasal oxytocin administration...

Companion Diagnostics and Compound Screening Assay for PI3K Inhibitors
The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) protein family regulates cellular functions including growth, proliferation, survival, differentiation, and motility. Because these functions are critical for cancer progression, many companies are developing therapeutic compounds to inhibit PI3K. GW inventors identified an alternative splicing variant of PIK3CD...

Antisense RNA therapy for liver carcinoma
A GW researcher invented a nucleic acid based therapy for Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, liver cancer). Currently available antiviral drugs can only eliminate short term effects of the HCV. But liver damage, caused by chronic HCV infections, carries the very high risk of developing into hepatocellular carcinoma,...

Thinking outside the heart: Use of engineered cardiac tissue for treatment of chronic deep venous insufficiency
­Researchers at George Washington University invented a new organ that can return blood flow to veins lacking functioning valves. The organ is a rhythmic cuff made of cardiac muscle cells that surrounds the vein. The cuff acts as a “mini heart” to aid blood flow through the venous segments. It can be made of a patient’s own adult...
