  7. Novel Circulating RNA-based Markers as Diagnostic Biomarkers of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD18A001

    In resource limited settings, rapid and accurate diagnosis of infections is critical for managing potential exposures to highly virulent pathogens,whether occurring from an act of bioterrorism or a natural event. This is especially important for hard to detect intracellular bacterial andalphavirus infections, that overlap symptomatically and often treated empirically due to a lack of reliable and ...

  8. Targeting the host response to limit infection by intracellular bacterial pathogens

    SBC: Blue Ridge Biosciences, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    Antibiotic development has traditionally focused on drugs that target the pathogen but resistance inevitably developsAn attractive alternative is to develop drugs that target the host response and in particular for facultative obligate intracellular bacterial pathogenswhich rely on the host for disease progressionIntracellular bacterial pathogens manipulate the host cytoskeletal system to their ad ...
