    Inventor: Yi-Rang Kim
  • Patent number: 11351165
    Abstract: It has been found by the present inventors that agents that boost the expression of the opioid receptor kappa 1 (OPRK1) can enhance the cytotoxicity of chemotherapeutic agents in multiple cancer cell lines. Furthermore, the effect is dose dependent, where the greater the induced expression of OPRK1, the greater the cytotoxicity of the chemotherapeutic agent. The increase in overall cytotoxicity is independent of the cytotoxicity of the agent that increases the expression of OPRK1, which itself has no or minimal cytotoxic effect.

  • Patent number: 11285145
    Abstract: Many drugs useful in treating cancer are metabolized by CYP2C8 enzymes, by CYP3A4 enzymes, or both. The effects of concomitant administration of relacorilant and paclitaxel, a drug used to treat cancer that is a substrate for both CYP2C8 and CYP3A4, are disclosed herein. Relacorilant potently inhibited CYP2C8 and CYP3A4 in in vitro tests, indicating that co-administration of relacorilant and paclitaxel would increase paclitaxel plasma exposure more than 5-fold in vivo, requiring significant reductions in paclitaxel doses when co-administering paclitaxel with relacorilant. Surprisingly, paclitaxel plasma exposure increased only by about 80% instead of the expected more than 5-fold increase expected with concomitant relacorilant and paclitaxel administration. Applicant discloses safe methods of co-administering relacorilant and paclitaxel by reducing the dose of paclitaxel to about half the paclitaxel dose used when paclitaxel is administered alone.
