Patent awarded for method to dampen immune response
Date:1/18/2011

nd to the transducer subunit of the receptor to inactivate the B cell.

Dr. Cambier's laboratory has recently developed several antibodies against one of the transducer elements, CD79, that have already yielded promising results.

"In contrast to current therapies for B-cell diseases, this method does not kill B cells, it merely inactivates them," said Dr. Cambier. "That could potentially allow for greater flexibility in using a therapy that is developed with this technology. Instead of the months to years it sometimes takes for the effects of current therapy to wane, our method could be reversed within days."

Dr. Cambier has recently received research funding from the State of Colorado and National Jewish Health through the Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program to further develop this promising technology.

"This research funding underlines our commitment to promote the translation of our scientists' research findings into therapeutic or diagnostic products that can ultimately help patients worldwide," said Emmanuel Hilaire, PhD, Manager of the Technology Transfer Office at National Jewish Health. "National Jewish is currently exploring various commercialization venues for its licensing, including the creation of a start-up company in Colorado."
