Use of Retinoids in Congenital Erythropoietic Porphyria
Invention Summary: Congenital erythropoietic porphyria (CEP) is an unaddressed orphan disease caused by a rare genetic disorder leading to accumulation of uro/coproporphyrin-I (uro-I) in tissues due to inhibition of the enzyme uroporphyrinogen-III synthase. Clinical manifestations of CEP include bone fragility, severe photosensitivity, and photo-mutilation....

Novel Zinc Metallochaperone (ZMC) Complexes for Treatment of p53-Mutated Cancers
A) Novel mechanism of action: a short exposure to ZMCs increases zinc levels in tumors enough to restore normal structure/function to mutant p53 which leads to p53 mediated cancer cell death. B) Novel formulation: Synthesizing ZMCs as a zinc-loaded complex (Zn-1) improves survival in a pancreatic cancer mouse model compared to the ZMC compound alone....
