Redox-Directed Chelators Targeting Intracellular Metal Ions
Novel molecular design extends the reach of iron chelators to applications in cancer chemotherapy. This invention not only recognizes the higher demand of iron that characterizes cancer cells, but also takes into account other physiological differences between malignant cells and the surrounding tissue. Specifically, taking advantage of the reducing...

Method for Classification of Cells Based on Gene Expression
Researchers at the University of Arizona have developed methodology to characterize global gene expression within a single cell nucleus. It is envisioned that this technology will be applicable to the diagnosis of disease states in tissue or organ biopsies. It will provide signature expression patterns of normal and diseased tissue. A comprehensive...

HYD1 Peptides as Anti-Cancer Agents
This invention comprises the composition of HYD1 peptides which are peptides of a specific sequence composed of D amino acids that bind beta integrin and prevent cancer cells from attaching to the extracellular matrix. These peptides are useful as cancer therapeutics on their own. Also, these peptides can be combined with other therapies and be useful...
