Patent
Rockland, Inc. | Date: 2017-06-28

An electro-magnetic induction fluid conductivity sensor is described which includes a hollow non-conductive body defining a fluid chamber. The fluid chamber has a first end and a second end. A voltage transformer is provided which is capable of inducing an electric field into fluid positioned within the fluid chamber, thereby causing an electric current to flow through the fluid. An instrument is provide for measuring the electric current. A conductive shunt receives the electric current induced by the voltage transformer in the liquid at the first end of the sample chamber and returning the electric current to the second end to complete an electrical circuit.

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Post-transcriptional RNA modification plays an important role in biological processes. For example, adenosines to nosiness or A-to-I editing are most abundant in the central nervous system (CNS) and essential for normalCNS development. Presently, the available reagents for detection, quantitation, or immunoprecipitation of modified RNA are extremely limited. Rockland Immunochemicals is collaborating with Aptagen to develop synthetic antibodies for detection and quantitation of modified RNAs. In Phase I, as a proof-of-principle, high-affinity and target-specific aptamers and aptamer-based detection assays for inosine and N6- methyladenosine containing RNA will be developed. In Phase II, aptamer reagents and assays to morethan 60 RNA modifications known in eukrayotes will be developed. These affinity reagents will be used in microarrays to profile RNA modifications in different mouse CNS disorder models. PUBLIC HEALTH RELEVANCE PUBLIC HEALTH RELEVANCE:

Medical imaging and targeted therapy are the central components in the clinical management of cancer patients. Rockland Immunochemicals, Inc. is teaming up with Abzyme Therapeutics LLC to develop novel imaging agents that can be used in both cancer diagnosis and targeted therapy. In this phase I proposal, high-affinity camelid single domain antibodies to three cancer biomarkers HER2, EGFR and mesothelin will be developed. The antibodies will be directionally conjugated to near-infrared spectrum fluorescentdyes. Properties of the nanobody, including in vivo clearance, rapid tumor accumulation, in vivo stability and bioavailability, will be investigated in tumor xenograft animal models. In the Phase II, selected antibodies will be conjugated with chelators for radiolabeling with metal radionuclides. Pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamics, immunogenic and toxicological characteristics of agents will be investigated in animal models to obtain data necessary for filing an Investigational New Drug application.

The RON and c-MET signal pathways are critical regulators of cell growth, survival, migration, differentiation, and drug resistance. High levels of activated RON or c-MET have been observed in a number of human cancers. Activation of RON and c-MET by phosphorylation initiates a signal transduction cascade that promotes cancer cell proliferation, invasiveness, apoptotic and drug resistance, and metastasis. A number of anticancer drugs currently in clinical trials are targeting both of of these pathways. Further, the activation state and protein levels of RON and c-MET are good indicators of drug treatment efficacy and cancer cell survival outcome. In Phase I, we will develop a quantitative immunoassay to monitor the phosphorylation state of either RON or GAB1(the target of c-MET) in various activated and unactivated cancer cell lines. The ELISA kit will be manufactured and written SOPs created. In Phase II, we will use the RON or GAB1 kit to measure activation and protein levels in clinical samples from a wide range of cancers and additional PD assays, including studies using drugs that upregulate or downregulate these targets. The availability of RON and GAB1 detection kits will aid clinicians and researchers to monitor these proteins in a number of diseasesand predict the efficacy of cancer treatment.

In response to this NCI solicitation, Rockland proposes to develop a novel method to assay the pharmacodynamic (PO) properties of anti-cancer small molecules targeting the PI3K/mTOR/AKT signaling pathway by quantitatively and independently measuring the phosphorylation of each unique AKT isoform in a validated multiplex immunoassay. The developed PD-AKT-ELISA would offer improved personalized medicine, whereby physicians would prescribe a dosage according to the pharmacodynamic effects of anti-cancer drugson individual patients, or modify therapeutic modality based on the feedback for each individual Akt isoform. We plan to use a number of anti-cancer drug candidates in this study and to produce reagents, including monoclonal antibodies to measure inactiveand active AKT isoforms suitable for a fit-for-use theranostic quantitative biomarker ELISA for AKT. The PO-AKT-ELISA and associated reagents will be produced, optimized, validated and applied to both solid tumor and soft tumor xenograft tissue. The reagents and validated assay will measure all AKT isoforms in its active and inactive states to fill a need not currently addressed by products or technologies commercially available to researchers and clinicians. The end result will be a multiplex assay thatcan be used by most existing immunoassay readers in both a research and high through-put clinical environment. Assay results will allow physicians to more precisely target dosages or types of drugs that modulate the PI3K/mTOR/AKT pathway, and will ultimately lower treatment costs by more accurately prescribing effective doses of anticancer drugs and potentially shortening the duration of drug treatment regimens.
