Patents by Inventor Boris Kroeplien

Boris Kroeplien has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20210140972
    Abstract: The invention is in the field of TNF signalling. Compounds have been identified which are capable of modulating signalling of TNF trimers through receptors. Methods of identifying such compounds are therefore provided. The compounds themselves have utility in therapy.
    Type: Application
    Filed: October 16, 2020
    Publication date: May 13, 2021
    Inventors: James Philip O'CONNELL, John Robert PORTER, Alastair LAWSON, Boris KROEPLIEN, Stephen Edward RAPECKI, Timothy John NORMAN, David James MCMILLAN, Graham John WARRELLOW, Daniel Christopher BROOKINGS, Rikki Peter ALEXANDER
  • Publication number: 20210088530
    Abstract: A new, stable trimeric TNF? structure is disclosed with distorted symmetry which can bind to the TNFR1 receptor to attenuate signalling therefrom, which can be used in the treatment and/or prevention of diseases associated with the soluble TNF?/TNFR1 interaction. Membrane-bound TNF? is not affected in its ability to signal through TNFR2, and thus the new structure of TNF? may be used in therapies which do not significantly raise the risk of infection or malignancy.

  • Publication number: 20200400678
    Abstract: It has been demonstrated that certain compounds bind to TNF and stabilise a conformation of trimeric TNF that binds to the TNF receptor. Accordingly, these compounds can be used as modulators of TNF. A new assay for identifying compounds with this mechanism of action is also disclosed.
