DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW ANTITUMOR INHIBITOR FROM SCORPION VENOM TARGETING THE HUMAN PLASMA TISSUE MATRIX METALLOPROTEINASE-2.
The purpose of this research is to develop new molecules for the therapy and diagnostics of MMP-2 expressing tumours such as glioblastoma. The goal of the 3-year project has been met: we developed a patentable 'lead compound' group that is superior to the start compound chlorotoxin in that it can target malignant tumour cells more efficiently and selectively than chlorotoxin does. We have filed a patent application for these compounds.

DISEASES
DEVELOPMENT OF NEW KCNA3 CHANNEL-SPECIFIC ANTI-AUTOIMMUNE MECHANISMS
Chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases place a heavy burden on society. Sustained activation of effector memory T cells (TEM) plays a key role in the development of autoimmune diseases. TEM cells but no other immune cells excessively rely on KCNA3 (Kv1.3) potassium channels for persistent activation. Therefore, a drug that selectively inhibits KCNA3 (Kv1.3) but no other potassium channels, could be used to treat chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases effectively and with a better safety profile compared to currently used immunosuppressant therapies.

Our goal is to develop such an inhibitor by directing the evolution of animal toxin libraries created by segment shuffling.

PRODUCT FOR MIGRAINE
PROPHYLAXIS
DEVELOPMENT OF A FIXED-COMBINATION DRUG FOR MIGRAINE PROPHYLAXIS
Migraine is a debilitating disease characterized by recurring attacks of headaches affecting many people (17% of women, 6% of men) and can cause severe temporary incapacity for work. Approximately 38% of migraine patients have more than 2 attacks a month, which experts say would warrant prophylaxis, but these conditions are undertreated. The Combi-X project aims to develop a fixed-combination product comprising two drugs with various mechanisms. This new combination also represents the repurposing of drugs with well-known safety and tolerability profiles originally aimed for other indications. The novel drug combination is expected to provide better and more cost-effective prophylactic treatment for migraineurs than currently available drugs (e.g., topiramate, beta-blockers, CGRP inhibitors) and also targets currently therapy-resistant cases.
