GÖTTE, Matthias, University of Alberta

The present disclosure provides nucleic acids, expression vectors, host cells for producing recombinant viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) polypeptides of viruses such as Ebola virus. The present disclosure also provides methods and substrates for assaying activity of a RdRp polypeptide or a RdRp complex. Also provided herein are inhibitors of RdRp polypeptides of viruses such as Ebola virus for use in treating or preventing viral infection.

OLIGOSACCHARIDE CONJUGATES AND METHODS OF USE

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR ENVIRONMENT, FOOD AND RURAL AFFAIRS, University of Alberta

There is provided a method of detecting in a sample the presence of an anti-M and/or anti-A and/or anti-C/Y antibody, the method comprising contacting the sample with a diagnostic conjugate provided according to the invention, comprising an oligosaccharide which comprises at least two units of 4,6-dideoxy-4-acylamido-a- pyranose and comprising at least one -(1-3)-link between adjacent 4,6-dideoxy-4-acylamido-a-pyranose units, in which the carbon at position 5 in the pyranose is linked to an...

MACROCYCLIC LACTONE RESISTANCE MARKER FOR DIROFILARIA IMMITIS

McGill University, Novartis Pharmaceuticals

The invention relates to a method for determining the responsiveness of a Dirofilaria spp. nematode to a macrocyclic lactone, by determining the genotype of the nematode at a position in a P-glycoprotein gene of the nematode corresponding to position 1 1, and optionally to position 618, in SEQ ID NO: 1, wherein the genotype GG at a position corresponding to position 1 1, or at positions corresponding to positions 1 1 and 618, in SEQ ID NO: 1 indicates that the nematode is likely resistant to...

COMPOUNDS FOR TARGETING THYROID HORMONE RECEPTOR ALPHA ISOFORMS AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF

McMaster University

Two isoforms of thyroid receptor alpha (THRα1 and THRα2) have been found to be associated with the growth of cancer. Use of inhibitors of THRα1 (Formula I) and/or agonists of THRα2 (Formula II) in the treatment of such cancers is disclosed. Treatment of other disorders associated with such receptors is also contemplated, as is the use of diagnostic methods for predicting therapeutic outcomes based on the levels of expression of THRα1 and THRaα2 in a tissue sample.
