CC16-Derived Analogs for the Treatment of Inflammatory and Obstructive Lung Diseases
This innovation relates to analogs/mimetics of CC16 also known as Urinary protein 1 (UPI), or Clara cell protein, or club cell protein. This protein is targeted for the treatment of cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, cystic fibrosis and any other diseases that CC16 may have activity in. The inventors have discovered a novel site...

Toll-like Receptor 2 Ligands and Methods of Making and Using Thereof
Inventors at the University of Arizona have developed a set of 13 high-affinity toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) agonists. In certain diseases, particularly pancreatic cancer, these receptors are overexpressed. TLR2 agonists are absorbed by these receptors. When the ligands are labeled with fluorescent proteins, the tumors can be identified. Additionally,...
