1. THE TOY/NOVELTY PATENT:
BIOLUMINESCENT NOVELTY ITEMS
2. THE GENE PATENT
LUCIFERASES, FLUORESCENT PROTEINS,NUCLEIC ACIDS ENCODING THE LUCIFERASES AND FLUORESCENT PROTEINS AND THE USE THEREOF IN DIAGNOSTICS, HIGH THROUGHPUT SCREENING AND NOVELTY ITEMS.
3. THE BIOCHIP PATENT:
APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR DETECTING AND IDENTIFYING INFECTIOUS AGENTS
U.S. Patent No. 6,458,547
4. THE TUMOR IMAGING PATENT:
DETECTION AND VISUALIZATION OF NEOPLASTIC TISSUES AND OTHER TISSUES.
U.S. Patent No. 6,416,960
Diagnostic systems that rely on bioluminescence for visualizing tissues in situ are provided. The systems are particularly useful for visualizing and detecting neoplastic tissue and specialty tissue during surgical procedures. Kits that provide the components of the systems and methods using the systems for visualizing the tissue are also provided. The systems include compositions containing conjugates that include a tissue specific, particularly a tumor-specific, targeting agent linked to a targeted agent, a luciferase or luciferin. The systems also include a second composition that contains the remaining components of a bioluminescence generating reaction. Administration of the compositions results production of light by targeted tissues that permits the detection and localization of neoplastic tissue for surgical removal. Therapeutic methods in which photosensitizing compounds are administered are also provided.
