Small Molecule Mixed Agonist/Antagonist for Opioid Receptors for Anti-Addiction and/or Pain Therapy
This invention provides compositions and method of pain treatment using a mixture of an opioid receptor agonist in combination with an adrenoreceptor modulator compound. The opioid receptor agonist may be a clinically-used drug, and the adrenoreceptor modulator compound is a novel small molecule. ­Proof-of-concept testing in animals has shown...

Neuroprotection via Glycosylated PACAP Analogues with Differentiated Selectivity toward PAC1 and VPAC1 > VPAC2
Inventors at the University of Arizona have developed glycopeptide analogues of PACAP which exhibit selective PAC1 and/or VPAC1 receptor activity with a reduced VPAC2 receptor activity as compared to native PACAP, an endogenous peptide hormone associated with neuronal tissue repair. Thus, these compounds have positive benefits of PAC1 and VPAC1 activation...

Novel Peptides Bioavailable to the Brain for Non-Opioid Pain Relief and/or Addiction Treatment
Inventors at the University of Arizona have developed oxytocin analogues which have high potency, are designed to be more stable compared to the native oxytocin hormone (an endogenous peptide which inhibits pain and promotes social connection), have very high selectivity for oxytocin receptors, and are bioavailable for brain therapeutics. These druggable...

Glycopeptide and Classical Drug Design
This invention relates to the glycosylation drug candidates to increase penetration, bioavailability, and stability. Background: Transmembrane proteins provide a pathway for drugs to interact with a cell's interior. Drugs commonly target G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), comprising 40% of the market. Peptides and small molecule drugs directed...

Glycosylation of Secretin Peptides to Improve Drug-Like Properties
This invention is the development of pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP) agonists for neuroprotection and antagonists for migraine. Background: PACAP is known as a neuronal survival factor, regulating the development, maintenance, function, and plasticity of neurons through activating PAC1, VPAC1, and VPAC2 receptors. Glycosylated...
