Award List:

Humanizing N-linked glycosylation in Escherichia coli

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Adam C. Fisher
Award Amount: $115,988.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Protein-based therapeutics currently represent one in every four new drugs approved by the FDA and command a market in excess of 30 billion. The vast majority of therapeutic proteins require additional post-translation al modifications to attain their full… More

Glycophage arrays for the discovery of biomarkers in disease

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Adam C. Fisher
Award Amount: $200,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many biological processes throughout the lifespan of a living organism are governed by discrete sugar structures and their interaction with protein and lipid molecules. Such carbohydrates play essential roles in process es such as cell-cell recognition, adhesion,… More

Glycosylation of full-length antibodies in Escherichia coli

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Adam C. Fisher
Award Amount: $82,203.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently, therapeutic antibodies represent approximately 30% of all biotech revenues (gt 35 billion) and nearly all are produced in mammalian cell culture. Since monoclonal antibodies require glycosylation to provide full therapeutic benefit, mammalian cell… More

Therapeutic antibody fragments from glycoengineered Escherichia coli

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Adam C. Fisher
Award Amount: $391,734.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Omalizumab (XolairTM) is a recombinant monoclonal anti-IgE antibody used in the fight against severe allergic asthma that generates 500 million per year. However, 2 out of every 1,000 patients treated with omalizumab s uffer from anaphylaxis, a severe allergic… More

Conjugation of polysialic acid to biologics in glycoengineered Escherichia coli

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Adam C. Fisher
Award Amount: $199,020.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Biotherapeutics currently constitute a 70 billion market, but their clinical efficacy is often compromised by limitations arising from proteolytic degradation, uptake by cells of the reticuloendothelial system, renal r emoval, and immunocomplex formation. This… More

Production of recombinant human glucocerebrosidase in Escherichia coli

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Adam C. Fisher – 443-677-8849
Award Amount: $175,860.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Gaucher's disease is the most common lysosomal storage disease in humans resulting in the harmful accumulation of fatty glucocerebroside in the spleen, liver, lungs, bone marrow, and brain. Gaucher patients exhibit a hereditary deficiency of… More

Engineering Escherichia coli for glycosylation of complex human proteins

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Adam C. Fisher – 443-677-8849
Award Amount: $1,608,039.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Escherichia coli was the host organism for production of the first approved recombinant protein therapeutic in 1982. We now know that most therapeutic proteins require N-linked protein glycosylation to achieve their full clinical efficacy. Since E. coli has not… More
