The present disclosure provides copolymers of 2-substituted-2-oxazolines possessing two or three reactive functional groups which are also chemically orthogonal. The copolymers described may be random copolymers, block copolymers or a mixture of random and block copolymer configurations. Furthermore, the present disclosure provides novel methods for synthesizing the above polymers find for conjugating to molecules such as targeting, diagnostic and therapeutic agents.


The present disclosure provides POZ derivatives having a range of active functional groups allowing conjugation of POZ derivatives to a variety of target molecules under a wide range of reaction conditions to produce a hydrolytically stable target molecule-POZ conjugate. Furthermore, the present disclosure provides novel methods of synthesis for the disclosed POZ derivatives and hydrolytically stable target molecule-POZ conjugates created using the disclosed terminally activated monofunctional POZ derivatives. In one embodiment, the POZ derivative is a terminally activated monofunctional POZ derivative.

In the present disclosure, polymer conjugates, including polymer-antibody-drug conjugates (polymer ADCs) are described, as well as the use of such conjugates to treat human disease. The polymer conjugates can contain a large number of polymer-bound agents, thus effectively increasing the drug antibody ration (DAR) of the antibody significantly beyond the currently available technology. This may be of particular importance when antibodies to low density antigens are used as target antibodies. The described polymer-ADCs have improved pharmacokinetics and solubility relative to traditional ADCs. The linker between agent and the polymer can be tailored to provide release of toxin at the desired site and under the desired conditions within the tumor. An additional feature of the polymer-ADCs of the current disclosure is that a purification moiety can be attached to the polymer backbone to provide ease of purification of the polymer-ADCs.


The present disclosure provides novel functional polyoxazoline derivatives prepared by terminating polyoxazoline polymerization with inert chemical groups. In addition, the present disclosure demonstrates the synthesis of novel electrophilic initiators with protected functional groups capable of initiating oxazoline polymerization and capable of surviving the conditions of polymerization. These initiators are used to synthesize the above inert-terminal polyoxazoline derivatives as well as other polyoxazolines with active terminal groups. Furthermore, the present disclosure provides for polyoxazoline-lipid conjugates and liposomal compositions prepared using such polyoxazoline-lipid conjugates. Methods of using the foregoing to prepare conjugates with target molecules are also disclosed.
