Ronawk LLC has developed a platform technology that significantly widens the bottleneck and will propel the growth of new and effective personalized treatments for patients. Ronawk’s platform technology, Tissue Blocks (T-Blocks), are custom substrates that are both modular and expandable. T-Blocks enable patient cells to grow in 3D naturally as they would in the body without the need for standard maintenance. This preserves the integrity and quality of the isolated cells as they rapidly expand. The T-Blocks can be used to preserve cells, expand cells, or build custom tissues to regenerate a damaged organ or tissue without the need to find a donor or remove tissue from another part of the body.

This single molecule sequencing technology employs a unique strategy providing superior read-length and base call accuracy at very high speed.
Ultrasound-assisted laser blood-clot buster
Compared to other radiotherapy approaches, targeted radionuclide therapeutics (TRTs) allows for the selective delivery of therapeutic radiation doses to tumors, while at the same time reducing non-target toxicities. AdductNE LLC is investigating approaches to selectively increase the tumor residualization of receptor-targeted constructs using protease inhibitors. Specifically, our proprietary tumor-residualizing TRTs selectively localize in the tumors and form irreversible, high-molecular-weight adducts. We have demonstrated that utilization of irreversible, protease inhibitors greatly increase the tumor-residualization of two TRT platforms we are currently exploring for clinical translation.

OncoCare Therapeutics is commercializing a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting truncated MUC16 in pancreatic and ovarian cancer patients. Pancreatic cancer metastasis is driven by a normal cell protective molecule, MUC16, that becomes cleaved off of normal cells, modified and then becomes a cancer driving signaling molecule. OncoCare’s proprietary antibody targets this molecule specifically and removes it from circulation for slowing or arresting pancreatic cancer metastases. The first generation of the drug was shown to improve lifespan and reduce metastatic tumor load in animal studies.
