  • Novel and selective inhibitors of SRC family kinases

    Novel compounds displaying high potency and selectivity toward SRC family kinases have been developed. The lead compound eCF506 displays subnanomolar potency against SRC, high selectivity over ABL kinase (1000-fold), optimal pharmacokinetic profile and in vivo target engagement.

  • New prodrug strategy for targeted chemotherapies

    This new approach converts chemotherapy agents into prodrugs, significantly reducing systemic toxicity, and enabling local activation only at tumour sites where a specific catalyst, palladium, has been implanted.

  • TEMo: Gene Signatures for Breast Cancer Diagnosis

    The presence of cancer causes changes to the immune system. A 13-gene signature characteristic of the presence of breast cancer has been identified from blood samples, and a diagnostic to identify this signature as a means of detecting breast cancer more effectively than existing methods has been de...

  • Strategy for Enhancing the Performance of Vaccines

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have designed and synthesised a novel, multifunctional protease inhibitor that has the potential to significantly enhance the performance of vaccines through proteolytic modulation.

  • Novel chemical probes of epigenetic protein function

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a robust and original method for interrogating the activity of single bromodomain proteins, which will assist in exploring their role in the epigenetics of health and disease.

  • Biocatalysis of a novel fluorinated sugar [18-F]-FDR for PET imaging

    Combining the sequential use of 2 enzymes – fluorinase and nucleoside hydrolase – we have successfully produced a new radiotracer with potential as an imaging biomarker for PET scans. The fluorinase enzyme combines fluorine with S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) to generate 5'-fluro-5'-deoxy...

  • The eFinger - non-subjective Prostate Examination & Prostate Cancer Indication Tool

    Prostate Cancer, caught early enough, is increasingly treatable. Digital rectal examination of the Prostate is often the first stage of prostate cancer screening but is somewhat subjective. eFinger offers an alternative - a numerical non-subjective indication based on prostate tissue properties to p...

  • Telomerase Promoter - Cancer Therapies

    The University of Glasgow has developed a (Ad-hTR-NTR) which has been extensively tested on Ovarian cancer cells.

    Expires: Created:
  • One step prodrug trigger for targeted release of drugs

    A tetrazine small-molecule trigger for activating prodrugs has been developed. Active molecules, such as a therapeutic drug or imaging fluorophore, can be caged within a polymer nanoparticle for controlled release at a targeted site.
