Patents by Inventor Judy C. Boughey

Judy C. Boughey 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: 20210283101
    Abstract: This document provides methods and materials involved in treating cancer. For example, methods and materials for using an inhibitor of USP7 polypeptide to increase the sensitivity of cancer cells (e.g., CD340+ cancer cells such as HER2+ cancer cells) to treatment with an inhibitor of a CD340 polypeptide (e.g., an inhibitor of a HER2 polypeptide) are provided. Methods and materials for using USP7 polypeptide inhibitors in combination with CD340 polypeptide inhibitors to treat cancer (e.g., HER2+ breast cancer that was refractory to trastuzumab alone treatment) are provided.
    Type: Application
    Filed: July 7, 2017
    Publication date: September 16, 2021
    Applicant: Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research
    Inventors: Liewei Wang, Matthew P. Goetz, Judy C. Boughey, Jia Yu, Bo Qin
  • Publication number: 20190255154
    Abstract: This document provides methods and materials for using butyrylcholinesterases (BChE) to treat cancer (e.g., triple negative breast cancer or prostate cancer). For example, methods and materials for using nucleic acid vectors (e.g., viral vectors) to express BChE polypeptides under conditions that reduce the number of cancer cells (e.g., triple negative breast cancer cells or prostate cancer cells) within a mammal (e.g., a human) and/or reduce the growth rate of cancer cells (e.g., triple negative breast cancer cells or prostate cancer cells) within a mammal (e.g., a human) are provided.

  • Patent number: 10220016
    Abstract: This document provides methods and materials involved in assessing chemotherapy responsiveness and treating cancer (e.g., breast cancer). For example, methods and materials for determining whether or not a cancer patient (e.g., a breast cancer patient) is likely to respond to chemotherapy (e.g., a taxane therapy) based at least in part on the presence of a variant in the mammal's polycystic kidney disease gene 1 (PKD1) are provided. In addition, methods and materials involved in treating mammals having cancer (e.g., breast cancer) by administering an inhibitor of ubiquitin specific peptidase 2 (USP2) polypeptide activity (e.g., NSC-632839, a 2-cyano-pyrimidine, or a 2-cyano-triazine) in combination with another chemotherapeutic agent such as a taxane therapy are provided.
    Type: Grant

    Date of Patent: March 5, 2019
    Assignee: Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research
