Leukocyte-Derived Nanoparticles to Treat Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
This invention is an engineered biomimetic lipid-based nanoparticle (NP) functionalized with leukocyte membrane proteins (a.k.a. leukosomes) which are capable of targeting vascular inflammation. The ratio at which these leukocyte proteins are integrated within the NP shell dictates the biological behavior of the leukosomes. This particular formulation...

Ponatinib-Encapsulated Biomimetic Nanoparticle to Treat Osteosarcoma
This invention is a novel formulation of ponatinib which allows for targeted drug delivery to osteosarcoma tumors. This formulation utilizes a biomimetic lipid-based nanoparticle (NP) embedded with leukocyte membrane proteins (a.k.a. leukosomes). Previous iterations of leukosomes have demonstrated improved targeting of inflamed endothelium. Due to the...

Apoliprotein-B Functionalized Nanoparticles for Targeted Delivery to Atherosclerotic Plaques
This invention is a proteolipid nanoparticle platform functionalized with apolipoprotein B-100 for localized delivery of therapeutic compounds to atherosclerotic plaques, termed aposomes. Apolipoprotein B-100 is a crucial functional and structural component of low density lipoproteins (LDLs) and therefore plays a critical role in cholesterol transport...
