Specific Inhibitors of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) Production
Texas Health San Antonio researchers have created recombinant mutant versions of NOXA1 and p67phox that inhibit generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by NOX enzymes. These polypeptides may be useful therapeutically as specific inhibitors of ROS overproduction to treat a variety of disease states. Background: ROS are important for a number o...

A method to better predict the likelihood that endocrine therapy alone after surgical intervention will be sufficient to treat patients with estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer
The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio seeks to partner with a diagnostic products company to develop and commercialize a clinical diagnostic with the potential to determine if a patient with estrogen receptor (ER) positive breast cancer is suitable for treatment with endocrine therapy (e.g., tamoxifen and/or the aromatase inh...

Osteocyte Cell Lines
Researchers at UT Health San Antonio have developed a method of producing osteocyte cell line in various stages of differentiation. Such cell line remains stable after more than 20 passages. The osteocyte has a stellate shape with dendritic processes and expresses high level of osteocalcin. More specifically, it provides a method of production for ...
