Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $171,527.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States with an estimated gt160,000 deaths and gt200,000 newly diagnosed cases each year.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Andreas G. Bader
Award Amount: $282,967.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prostate cancer (PrCa) is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in males, following only lung cancer.

Development of modified microRNA therapeutics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: David M. Brown
Award Amount: $287,270.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Experimental evidence accumulated in the past few years indicates that several miRNAs likely function as tumor suppressors and that the altered expression of these miRNAs likely contributes to a significant number of hu man cancers. Mirna Therapeutics has… More

Systemic delivery of chitosan/miRNA nanoparticles to prostate tumors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Andreas G. Bader – 512-681-5367
Award Amount: $299,999.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as a promising new class of therapeutics for cancer. miRNAs are small, non-coding RNAs that determine cell fate by post-transcriptionally regulating the expression of a broad but nevertheless specific set of genes. miRNAs can… More

Therapeutic miRNAs in combination with conventional chemotherapy

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
