  1. Development of VPL Vaccine for RSV

    SBC: SIGMOVIR BIOSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    Project Summary Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is recognized as the single most important viral cause of acute respiratory disease in infants and young children worldwide. Elderly populations and immunocompromised individuals are also at significant risk for serious RSV disease. Despite this very substantial disease burden imposed by RSV worldwide, there are no vaccines available. Severa ...

  2. Non-ATP competitive inhibitors of cyclin dependent kinases as cancer therapeutics

    SBC: PPI PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States with some sub-types remaining essentially untreatable, expansion of available drug targets will provide significant new options for the development ofmore effective antineoplastic agents. The major goal of this project is to apply a unique drug discovery strategy to cancer drug development. Th ...

  5. A daily client check-in system for outpatient substance abuse treatment

    SBC: COG ANALYTICS, LLC            Topic: NIDA

    Abstract Alcohol and illicit drug use remain highly prevalent in the US, and epidemiological surveillance surveys estimate that over 20.6 million individuals (~ 8% of the US population) meet standard diagnostic thresholds for substance use disorders (SAMHSA, 2011). Outpatient substance abuse treatment is the predominate method of treatment in the US for SUDs, typically involving intermittent cont ...

  7. A Millimeter-wave Tunable Cavity for Ultra-sensitive Solids and Liquids DNP-NMR at Low Budget

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: NIA

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NMR is probably the most powerful and widely used analytical technique for structure determination and function elucidation of molecules of all types, but it suffers from low sensitivity, particularly for insoluble biological macromolecules. Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) with Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) has recently demonstrated S/N gains exceeding t ...

  8. Effect of VBP15, a dissociative steroidal analogue, on intestinal epithelial repair processes in inflammatory bowel disease

    SBC: ReveraGen BioPharma, Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Glucocorticoids (e.g. prednisolone) are prescribed frequently to treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Despite effectiveness, adverse side effects believed to be caused by GRE-mediated transcriptional propertieslimit long term use of glucocorticoids in IBD patients. Furthermore, these GRE-mediated transcriptional activities have been previously shown to ...

  9. Developing a Nrf2 activator for the treatment of COPD

    SBC: CUREVEDA, LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. In the US alone, the disease afflicts ~13 million people and is the third-leading cause of death. Cigarette smoking isthe primary risk factor for COPD, initiating a persistent and progressive inflammatory immune response. Respiratory infections and pollutants can ...
