The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent No. 9,492,470 on November 15, 2016 to Miami University. The patent is entitled “Use of HMGA-targeted phosphorothioate DNA Aptamers To Suppress Carcinogenic Activity And Increase Sensitivity To Chemotherapy Agents In Human Cancer Cells.” Elevated high mobility group A (HMGA) protein expression in human cancer cells, and especially human pancreatic cancer cells, is correlated with resistance to the chemotherapy agent gemcitabine. The invention uses HMGA-targeted AT-rich phosphorothioate DNA (AT-sDNA) aptamers to suppress HMGA carcinogenic activity. The data indicates the potential use of HMGA targeted DNA aptamers to enhance chemotherapy efficacy in human cancer treatment, and in particular human pancreatic cancer treatment.
