Applications: Papiloma viruses constitute a group of DNA viruses that induce both lytic infections and either benign or malignant tumors. Papiloma viruses infect cutaneous, genital, oral, and respiratory epithelia in a tissue-specific manner. Infection with HPV has been associated closely with plantar warts, condylomata acuminata (anogenital warts), and premalignant and malignant lesio...Mon, 04 May 2009 14:19:31 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Human Fc Receptor-Transformed Cell Lines to Detect Virus-Neutralizing and Enhancing Antibodies, 04 May 2009 08:54:55 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu and Treatment of Interstitial Cystitis, 17 Apr 2009 13:12:06 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu - A Database Solution for the Management of Clinical Trial Recruitment, 17 Apr 2009 12:54:36 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu II Blood Samples, 17 Apr 2009 11:52:23 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu molecules Manipulation of G Protein Subunit Signaling for Chronic Pain Management and Opioid-Tolerance, 17 Apr 2009 11:45:51 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu the Risk for Recurrent Heart Attack(s), 17 Apr 2009 11:19:36 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Novel Approach to Treating Multiple Diseases by Small Molecule Targeting of G-Proteins - One Step Beyond GPCRs, 17 Apr 2009 09:13:11 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu of Molecular Mediators in TNF-Signaling (Inflammation) for the Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases Such as Atherosclerosis, Stroke, and Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury, 17 Apr 2009 08:59:25 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Factor Pathway Inhibition as a Treatment Strategy for Severe Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, 15 Apr 2009 13:47:11 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Cell Preparations for Allogeneic Repair of Injured Human White Matter, 13 Apr 2009 12:08:29 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Chimeric Model to Assess in vivo Response of Human Glial to Injury, Disease Perturbation, and Drug Treatment Applications: The invention has generated chimeric human-mouse brains in which the relative proportion of human astrocytes and oligodendrocytes is quite high, often exceeding 50% of all cells in the adult white matter. More over, researchers have established mice in which 100% of myelin, in substantially normal myelinated brain, is of human origin. Advantages: In vivo responses of human glia -including glial progenitor cells, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes- to injury and disease states may be imaged and biochemically assessed, in a mouse model that permits disease perturbation, drug treatm...Mon, 13 Apr 2009 08:33:16 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Model of Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common degenerative joint disease and currently there is no effective treatment for the diseases. We have generated a conditional activation genetic mouse model that can help to identify new drugs for the prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis. The mouse model can also test the effect and efficacy of existing or newly identified osteoarthritis drugs. Advantages: Using the mouse model, we demonstrate for the first time that over expression of a key gene in articular chondrocytes leads to the development of OA in adult mouse.Fri, 10 Apr 2009 09:06:03 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu and Regeneration of Articular Cartilage, and the Repair and Regeneration of Fibrocartilaginous Tissues, 06 Apr 2009 13:03:49 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Tendon Allografts as Delivery Vehicles for Genes, 06 Apr 2009 13:03:39 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu to Correct for Skeletal Lead Interference in Bone Mineral Density Measurements, 06 Apr 2009 13:03:36 GMTdavid_englert@urmc.rochester.edu Affinity Binding Proteins to Integrins This technology is related to the development of high affinity binding proteins to specific integrin proteins highly associated with cancer metastasis.
