The University of Pittsburgh announced that Pitt innovators were issued 12 U.S. patents in May 2018.
U.S. 9,937,250 “Immunogenic Tumor Associated Stromal Cell Antigen Peptides and Methods of Their Use”
Walter Storkus, Professor of Dermatology and Immunology, and colleagues, have developed a new solid tumor therapeutic cancer vaccine based on peptides, proteins, or cDNA expressed by the tumor’s connective tissues, known as stromal cells. This vaccine has been tested in mouse models and results in tumor eradication. It can be useful in treating any vascularized tumor in a traditional or cell therapy based vaccine strategy. For more information on licensing this technology, contact Andrew Remes.
