Title: Anthelmintic Compositions and Methods. UMMS16-43; Patent Pending.
This technology is based on the novel discovery that crystal proteins are highly potent anthelmintics. The invention comprises compositions and methods to treat a parasitic worm infection by administering to a subject a recombinant gram-positive bacterium expressing a crystal protein. The invention further discloses combination therapies wherein the recombinant bacteria is combined with a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist. more info.
Title:YEAST CELL WALL PARTICLES FOR RECEPTOR-TARGETED NANOPARTICLE DELIVERY. UMMS10-29; Patent 9,242,857.
The present invention improves upon previously described yeast-based microencapsulation methodologies, in particular, by providing for the incorporation of nanoparticles into and/or onto yeast cell wall particles (YCWPs), for example, yeast glucan particles (microparticles) (YGPs). The improved technologies provide for delivery of nanoparticles, the nanoparticles themselves having utility in biomedical applications, or the nanoparticles imparting one or more functionalities of use in various biomedical, e.g., drug delivery applications. more info
