U.S. Patent No. 7,235,365 issued 26 Jun 2007 (HHS Reference No. E–180– 2000/0–US–05). U.S. Patent Application No. 11/ 803,732 filed 14 May 2007 (HHS Reference No. E–180–2000/0–US–06). Licensing Status: Available for exclusive or non-exclusive licensing. Licensing Contact: Jennifer Wong; 301–435–4633; wongje@mail.nih.gov. Collaborative Research Opportunity: The National Cancer Institute’s Laboratory of Cellular Oncology is seeking statements of capability or interest from parties interested in collaborative research to further develop, evaluate, or commercialize therapeutics for Kaposi’s sarcomaassociated herpes virus (KSHV). Please contact John D. Hewes, Ph.D. at 301– 435–3121 or hewesj@mail.nih.gov for more information. Interferon Alpha Hybrids Description of Technology: Available for licensing are hybrid interferon alpha (INF-a) polypeptides constructed by combinations of INFa21b and INFa2c, and mutants of these hybrids. These hybrid constructs have resulted in novel IFNs that either combine different biological properties from the parent proteins or have significantly different biological activity from both the parents in anti-proliferative, anti-viral, or competitive binding properties. For instance, the hybrid designated HY–3 has higher anti-proliferative activity in Daudi, WISH, and primary human lymphocyte cells exhibiting approximately 6 times higher antiproliferative activity than either parent IFN. These IFN hybrids provide a powerful tool for studying the structurefunction relationship of these molecules. The engineered IFN-a proteins may have important new therapeutic applications and may provide greater insights into understanding of the clinical activities of existing IFN-as. Also available for licensing are hybrid INF-a nucleic acids encoding the hybrid polypeptides as well as cells, vectors, pharmaceutical compositions with these nucleic acid sequences. Applications: Anti-viral and cancer therapeutics. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:04 Aug 28, 2007 Jkt 211001 Research tool to study IFN-a functions. Market: Interferon alpha market was worth $2.1 billion in 2005. Industry focus is novel subtype or interferon alpha variants with improved pharmacodynamic and safety properties. Development Status: The technology is currently in the pre-clinical stage of development. Inventors: Kathryn C. Zoon et al. (FDA). Publications: 1. R Hu et al. Protein engineering of interferon alphas. Methods Mol Med. 2005;116:69–80. 2. R Hu et al.
