  • Patent number: 11229704
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of treating a tumor in a patient, comprising (a) administering riluzole in an amount effective to sensitize the tumor cells to ionizing radiation, and (b) irradiating the tumor cells with ionizing radiation in a dose effective to reduce tumor cell growth. The method can further comprise administering an effective amount of one or more additional therapeutic agents.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: November 20, 2020
    Date of Patent: January 25, 2022
    Assignee: RUTGERS, THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW JERSEY
    Inventors: Atif J. Khan, Suzie Chen, James S. Goydos, Bruce G. Haffty

  • Patent number: 10105467
    Abstract: Biodegradable, bioabsorbable cross-linked polymer tissue scaffolds for filling a void in human or animal soft tissue, such as a surgical or other wound, are disclosed. Drugs incorporated into the polymer backbone and/or loaded into the matrix are released directly to the target site. Additional non-toxic chemical constituents can be used to tune the hydrophilio hydrophobic and other physical properties of the cross-linked polymer tissue scaffolds, and incorporating brominated or iodinated constituents provides radio-opacity. The radio-opaque cross-linked polymer tissue scaffolds can assist in the targeting of radiation therapy.
