IPSCIO Record ID: 189409
The patent describes methods of cancer treatment through the administration of proteins or specific peptides found on tumor stem cells in vivo, in a manner eliciting monocyte or dendritic cell migration in order to allow uptake of proteins or peptides, followed by administration of a maturation signal in vivo. The invention provides for treatment of cancer through induction of anticancer immunity and/or immunity towards tumor initiating stem cells.

Licensor owns the rights to Patent Application Serial No. 62/478520 filed 03-29-17 â€œMethods of Re-Activating Dormant Memory Cells with Anticancer Activityâ€ and commercially named â€œMemoryMuneâ€.
The patent licensed provides means to recapitulate a natural immune response ex vivo through activation of innate immune cells, and subsequently utilizing products generated by said cells to stimulate adaptive immune cells to acquire ability to induce killing or inhibiting proliferation of cells expressing oncogenic transformations. In one embodiment of the invention, innate immune cells are activated with stimuli capable of inducing production of cytokines associated with induction of immunity to intracellular abnormalities; said cytokines are further administered to adaptive immune cells in a patient in need of treatment.
Licensee intends to develop products that can be used together to attack cancer at different levels, as well as to be used alone or in combination with existing therapies.
Developing the novel immunological use of mifepristone in the area of oncology adds another weapon in the fight against cancer using the patientâ€™s own immune system. Natural killer cells are a unique arm of the immune system that is capable of killing cancer cells without prior sensitization. The findings that mifepristone is capable of reducing cancer associated suppression of the natural killer cell compartment, we believe, positions mifepristone as a potentially valuable therapeutic in utilization of the immune system to kill tumors.

For inventions which are incremental improvements dominated by existing patents or pending patent applications for which Sponsor holds a license, Licensor grants to Sponsor an option to secure an exclusive license with the right to make, use and sell, have made, have used, import and offer for sale the claimed invention conceived or reduced to practice in the conduct of the Project.
The Licensor retains a perpetual, non-exclusive right to use the licensed property, product, procedure or process and to use the licensed technology for basic and clinical research, and the educational purposes of the Licensor, and not for any commercial purpose.
The knowledge is relating to a project entitled 'Use of heat shock proteins for the development of therapeutic and prophylactic vaccines for cancer and infectious diseases'.
Heat shock proteins, also known as HSPs, are also called stress proteins. HSPs are a group of proteins that are induced when a cell undergoes various types of environmental stresses like heat, cold and oxygen deprivation. HSPs are present in all cells in all life forms from bacteria to mammals, and their structure and function are similar across these diverse life forms. Under normal conditions, heat shock proteins play a major role in transporting fragments of proteins called peptides, including antigenic peptides, within a cell, and are thus called â€œchaperones.â€ Antigenic peptides are those portions of a protein that stimulate immune response when recognized by the immune system. Because HSPs chaperone peptides within the cell, they bind a broad array of antigenic peptides and facilitate their recognition by the immune system. Thus, HSPs help present the antigenic â€œfingerprintâ€ of the cell to the immune system.

GP2 is an immunotherapy designed to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer following surgery. GP2 is a 9 amino acid transmembrane peptide of the HER2/neu (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) protein, a cell surface receptor protein that is expressed in a variety of common cancers, including expression in 75% of breast cancers at low (1+), intermediate (2+), and high (3+ or over-expressor) levels. The patents are titled Vaccine for the Prevention of Breast Cancer Recurrence, and, Targeted Identification of Immunogenic Peptides.
GP2, an immunotherapy designed to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer following surgery. GP2 is a 9 amino acid transmembrane peptide of the HER2/neu (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) protein, a cell surface receptor protein that is expressed in a variety of common cancers, including expression in 75% of breast cancers at low (1+), intermediate (2+), and high (3+ or over-expressor) levels. In a Phase IIb clinical trial completed in 2018, no recurrences were observed in the HER2/neu 3+ adjuvant setting after median 5 years of follow-up, if the patient received the 6 primary intradermal injections over the first 6 months.
Following breast cancer surgery, a HER2/neu 3+ patient receives Herceptin in the first year, with the hope that their breast cancer will not recur, with the odds of recurrence slowly decreasing over the first 5 years after surgery. Herceptin has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 25% to 12% in the adjuvant setting while Kadcyla has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 22% to 11% in the neoadjuvant setting.

Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes are white blood cells that have left the bloodstream and migrated towards a tumor. They include T cells and B cells and are part of the larger category of â€˜tumor-infiltrating immune cellsâ€™ which consist of both mononuclear and polymorphonuclear immune cells, (i.e., T cells, B cells, natural killer cells, macrophages, neutrophils, dendritic cells, mast cells, eosinophils, basophils, etc.) in variable proportions. Their abundance varies with tumor type and stage and in some cases relates to disease prognosis
