Patent
AngioChem | Date: 2016-01-21

The invention relates to improvements in the field of drug delivery. More particularly, the invention relates to polypeptide derived from aprotinin and from aprotinin analogs as well as conjugates and pharmaceutical compositions comprising these polypeptides. The present invention also relates to the use of these polypeptide for transporting an antibody or antibody fragment across the blood-brain barrier of an individual and in the treatment and diagnosis of neurological diseases.

The present invention features a compound having the formula A-X-B, where A is peptide vector capable of enhancing transport of the compound across the blood-brain barrier or into particular cell types, X is a linker, and B is a peptide therapeutic. The compounds of the invention can be used to treat any disease for which the peptide therapeutic is useful.


The present invention relates to short polypeptides (e.g., fewer than 19 amino acids in length) and longer polypeptides (e.g., 19 or more amino acids in length) having one or more D-amino acids as targeting moieties. These polypeptides, when conjugated to agents (e.g., therapeutic agents or transport vectors) are capable of transporting the agents across the BBB or into particular cell types. In particular, the short polypeptides can include one or more D-amino acids. These compounds are therefore particularly useful in the treatment of neurological diseases or diseases associated with particular cell types, organs, or tissues.

The invention relates to improvements in the field of drug delivery. More particularly, the invention relates to polypeptides having a hydrolyzable covalent bond to a therapeutic agent that includes, etoposide, etoposide 4-dimethylglycine or doxorubicin. These polypeptide conjugates can be used as vectors to transport the podophyllotoxin derivative across the blood brain barrier (BBB) or into particular cell types such as ovary, liver, lung, or kidney. The invention also relates to pharmaceutical compositions that include the compounds of the invention and to uses thereof in methods of treatment.

The invention relates to improvements in the field of drug delivery. More particularly, the invention relates to polypeptides derived from aprotinin and from aprotinin analogs as well as conjugates and pharmaceutical compositions comprising these polypeptides or conjugates. The present invention also relates to the use of these polypeptides for transporting a compound or drug across the blood-brain barrier of a mammal and in the treatment and diagnosis of neurological diseases.


The present invention is directed to conjugates that include a polypeptide capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier or entering one or more cell types attached to a transport vector, i.e., a composition capable of transporting an agent (e.g., a therapeutic agent). In certain cases, the polypeptides are directly conjugated to a lipid or polymeric vector to allow targeted application of a therapeutic agent to treat, for example, a cancer, a neurodegenerative disease, or a lysosomal storage disorder.

The present invention is related to the one-step synthesis of enzyme conjugates and methods for treating or preventing MPS-II by administering such conjugates. In certain embodiments, these compounds can cross the blood-brain barrier or accumulate in the lysosome more effectively than the enzyme alone.

The present invention relates to carriers, conjugate and pharmaceutical compositions and their use to increase the potency of drugs and to modify the pharmacokinetics of compounds. More particularly, the present invention relates to conjugates comprising the carrier described herein and their use in the treatment and diagnostic of cancer.


Based on our identification of a polypeptide (Angiopep-7) that is efficiently transported to cells such as liver, lung, kidney, spleen, and muscle, the invention provides polypeptides, conjugates including the polypeptides, and methods for treating diseases associated with these cell types. Unlike other aprotinin related polypeptides identified herein (including Angiopep-3, Angiopep-4a Angiopep-4b Angiopep-5, and Angiopep-6) which efficiently cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB), Angiopep-7 is not efficiently transported across the BBB.
