Improved influenza A virus vaccines using alpha-Gal epitope modification

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $578,784.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Humans develop natural antibodies against a sugar molecule called Gal, which is present on proteins and lipids in most other species. These antibodies represent one of the strongest natural barriers to infection with ba cteria, parasites and viruses. NewLink… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL MED CTR (CINCINNATI)
Principal Investigator: Christopher L. Karp
Award Amount: $363,483.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Indolamine 2,3-deoxygenase enzymes (IDO-1 and IDO-2) play important counter-regulatory roles in the immune system. IDO-mediated tryptophan catabolism induces T cell suppression, which plays a physiological role in suppr essing autoimmune and allergic diseases, as… More
