The University of Pittsburgh reported that Pitt Innovators were awarded six patents in July 2017.
US 9,694,061 “Fully Human Antibodies to High Molecular Weight Melanoma Associated Antigen and Uses Thereof”
Soldano Ferrone, former Professor of Immunology, Surgery and Pathology, developed methods of using human monoclonal antibodies or antibody fragments that have applications in for multiple CSPG4-expressing cancers including antibody drug conjugates, targeted toxin therapy, radio immuno-guided surgery and imaging of primary tumors and metastases. Advanced pre-clinical studies show treatment with CSPG4 antibodies reduce growth, migration and adhesion of cancer in mice. This technology may be used in conjunction with other patented technologies for additional applications. For more information on licensing this technology contact Andrew Remes firstname.lastname@example.org.
