  • Publication number: 20170334863
    Abstract: Compounds which inhibit the small G protein Rho GTPase cell division cycle protein Cdc42 are provided. Morphological analyses of filopodia, western blots of Ccd42 phosphorylation, and effects on cellular wound healing and on growth cone formation all demonstrate that the described compounds are able to inhibit all tested Cdc42-mediated processes. The compounds effectively inhibit the effects of Cdc42 and effectively inhibit Cdc42-related cellular functions involving actin, such as Golgi organization and cell movement. Furthermore, the described Cdc42 inhibitor compounds may be provided as a medicament for the treatment of various conditions.

  • Patent number: 9353133
    Abstract: This invention relates to compounds useful for treating fungal infections, more specifically topical treatment of onychomycosis and/or cutaneous fungal infections. This invention is directed to compounds that are active against fungi and have properties that allow the compound, when placed in contact with a patient, to reach the particular part of the skin, nail, hair, claw or hoof infected by the fungus. In particular the present compounds have physiochemical properties that facilitate penetration of the nail plate.
