Software for Modeling Delivery and Penetration of Antibody Conjugates

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks parties to license software for modeling the targeted delivery of anti-cancer agents in solid tumors.

The software models the permeability and concentration of intravenously administered antibody anti-cancer agent conjugates in solid tumors.  The models can be used to determine optimal dosing regimen of a therapeutic in a particular cancer type.  Thirty factors that affect delivery rates and efficiencies are analyzed as variables in generating the models.

Potential Commercial Applications: Competitive Advantages:
  • Drug design
  • Combination therapy
  • Personalized medicine
  • Accurate permeability modeling of anti-cancer therapeutics.
