  • Patent number: 10048232
    Abstract: A photo acoustic non-destructive measurement apparatus and method for quantitatively measuring texture of a food snack is disclosed. The apparatus includes a laser generating tool, an acoustic capturing device, and a data processing unit. The laser generating tool directs a laser towards a food snack placed on a surface and creates pressure waves that propagate through the air and produce an acoustic signal. The acoustic capturing device records and forwards the signal to a data processing unit. The data processing unit further comprises a digital signal processing module that processes the received acoustic signal. A statistical processing module further filters the acoustic signal from the data processing unit and generates a quantitative acoustic model for texture attributes such as hardness and fracturability. The quantitative model is correlated with a qualitative texture measurement from a descriptive expert panel. Texture of food snacks are quantitatively measured with the quantitative acoustic model.

    Abstract: Described herein is the identification of a panel of high affinity monoclonal antibodies that bind GPC3. The disclosed antibodies recognize native GPC3 on the surface of cancer cells, as well as soluble GPC3. The highest affinity antibody (YP7) was further characterized and shown to be highly sensitive in that it was capable of detecting cancer cells with low expression of GPC3. YP7 also exhibited significant HCC tumor growth inhibition in vivo. Immunotoxins comprising the antibodies disclosed herein fused to PE38 exhibited very high binding affinity for GPC3-expressing cells and significantly inhibited GPC3-expressing cancer cell growth. Thus, the high-affinity monoclonal antibodies disclosed herein can be used for the diagnosis and treatment of GPC3-expressing cancers.

    Abstract: The present invention concerns compositions and methods of use of a humanized Class III anti-CEA antibody, comprising the heavy and light amino acid sequences SEQ ID NO:1 and SEQ ID NO:2. The antibody is effective to treat CEACAM5-expressing tumors, either alone or in combination with one or more therapeutic agents. Drug conjugated Class III anti-CEA antibodies, such as SN-38 or P2PDox immunoconjugates, are particularly efficacious. Surprisingly, the antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) exhibit high anti-cancer efficacy, while exhibiting low levels of systemic toxicity that are readily treated with standard amelioration techniques. Antibodies and/or immunoconjugates comprising the amino acid sequences SEQ ID NO:1 and SEQ ID NO:2 are surprisingly efficacious for therapy of solid tumors, even when the tumor has proven resistant to standard anti-cancer therapies.

  • Patent number: 9005910
    Abstract: The purpose is to produce, with high reproducibility, a complex of labeled probes and a carrier, said complex being to be used for detecting and measuring a target substance to be measured with high sensitivity and high stability. The means for accomplishing the purpose is that a label is bound to a probe-water soluble carrier conjugate using specific binding of an avidin compound such as avidin, streptavidin, etc. to biotin, and the binding of the avidin compound to the probe is performed before the binding to the carrier. Namely, after conjugating the avidin compound to a substance which is capable of binding to the target substance, the conjugate is bound to a high-molecule water-soluble carrier to produce a complex of the avidinized probes and the water-soluble carrier. Then the complex of the avidinized probes and the water-soluble carrier is mixed with a biotinylated label.

  • Publication number: 20150079104
    Abstract: The invention provides methods for inhibiting the interaction of endosialin with endosialin ligands. The inhibition is effectuated on the genetic level, by inhibiting endosialin gene expression, and on the protein level, by blocking the interaction of cell-surface expressed endosialin with ligands such as fibronectin and collagen. The invention provides methods for identifying inhibitors of the interaction of endosialin with endosialin ligands. Also provided are methods for inhibiting angiogenesis and neovascularization in vivo and in vitro.
