Inhibition of host heme oxygenase-1 as an adjunctive treatment to improve the outcome of conventional antibiotic chemotherapy of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Description of Technology This invention describes the adjunctive use of heme oxygenase-1 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:05 Feb 21, 2017 Jkt 241001 (HO–1) inhibitors to improve the outcome of conventional antibiotic treatment for tuberculosis. The existent standard of care requires prolonged administration of drug. Due to the long duration of treatment, methods that can more rapidly control tuberculosis in patients are clearly needed. NIAID researchers have discovered that inhibition of host HO–1 reduces Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) growth in vivo and, more importantly, when used as an adjunct to conventional chemotherapy, results in a marked improvement in pulmonary bacterial control. In particular, it was found using a mouse model that HO–1 inhibitors enhance bacterial clearance when used in conjunction with conventional antibiotic therapy. Further, no obvious toxic side effects were found. Since this host-directed strategy does not directly target the pathogen itself, it may have an added advantage as a treatment for infections with antibiotic-resistant Mtb strains. This technology is available for licensing for commercial development in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404, as well as for further development and evaluation under a research collaboration. Potential Commercial Applications: • Therapeutic for Mtb. Competitive Advantages: • Innovative, more rapidly effective therapeutics for tuberculosis are sorely needed due to the continued importance of TB as a global infectious disease and the increasing emergence of multi-drug resistant strains. • This invention is a host-directed therapy.
