Patent for License:

New Pharmaceutical Model - Transferring the Gene Complex    

The gene is transferred into abnormal cells efficiently, easily and selectively, the transferred gene can be activated in the cells.


The gene complex-forming material of this technology can be transferred into a living body efficiently as a stable gene complex upon transfer and in a target cell, the gene complex is specifically disintegrated to release a gene whereby the gene is able to be efficiently and selectively transferred into the living body.

Area of Interest: Research tools
Product Type: RNA/DNA related
Technology Type: Genetic

Primary Application of the Technology

Treatment for hepatitis, various inflammatory diseases and many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers disease and, in addition, abnormality of activity of kinase forming a phosphorylation signal known in various cancers and cardiac diseases.

Comments on Deal Structure, Potential Terms and Restrictions

Patent available for commercialization, enforcement rights negotiable.
