  1. Drug target identification using CRISPRi/a screening

    SBC: BIOIO, LLC            Topic: 400

    ABSTRACT As phenotypic screening makes a comeback in drug discovery, its major issue is drug target identification. There aren’t good generalizable approaches to do target identification for compounds of interest. Identifying how a new drug works at the molecular level is critical for improving it, which is often needed to give it the best chance of ultimately being both safe and effective in pa ...

  2. Treatment of Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy using Aerosolized Methotrexate

    SBC: POWERSCOPE, INC            Topic: NEI

    Project Summary Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) is a major complication of retinal detachments and is responsible for most of the failures in retinal reattachment surgeries. About 10% of retinal detachment patients suffer from PVR. These patients often have poor visual outcome despite multiple surgeries. Our previous work on inhibition of PVR has focused on pharmacological intervention concu ...

  3. Microbial Synthesis of Therapeutic Bile Acids

    SBC: Metselex, Incorporated            Topic: NINDS

    ABSTRACT This Phase STTR Phase I proposal aims to engineer a synthetic metabolic pathway in a microbial host to produce UDCA and related compounds. The proposed work has high intellectual merit for the following reasons: (i) UDCA biosynthesis does not occur in any organism whose cultivation can be scaled to meet global demand, (ii) UDCA requires a multi-organism biosynthetic pathway (animal cholic ...

  5. Multi-fold increase in the production of pharmaceutical insulin with Microbial Stem Cell Technology

    SBC: ASIMICA, INC.            Topic: 300

    PROJECT SUMMARY / ABSTRACT The goal of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel technology that is expected to boost yields from pharmaceutical industrial insulin production by greater than four-fold over conventional methods. Higher yields will lower production costs, generating savings that will ultimately be passed onto the millions of diabetic patients who require daily insuli ...

  6. Developing Real-time Interaction and Motion Tracking in Immersive Virtual Reality for Telerehabilitation

    SBC: Move LLC            Topic: 102

    Abstract Unceasing breakthroughs in technology will shape future healthcare diagnosis, treatment, and delivery. Telerehabilitation delivers rehabilitative healthcare remotely to overcome spatial, temporal and economic barriers. Effectiveness of telerehabilitation has been seen for patients with orthopedic and traumatic injuries, degenerative central nervous system disorders, and cardiovascular dis ...

  7. Development of a New Treatment for Diabetic Wounds

    SBC: NUTRIWYO LLC            Topic: NIDDK

    Abstract: Non-healing wounds affect ~25% of people with diabetes and represent a primary cause of amputation of lower limbs, which is an enormous clinical problem and a substantial economic burden. Given the lack of approved agents that effectively aid in the healing of diabetic wounds, a major need exists for developing novel pharmacological agents for treating diabetic wounds. Chronic diabetic w ...

  8. Development of a treatment for the durable remission of HIV using autologous human CAR T cells that target B cell follicles

    SBC: MarPam Pharma LLC            Topic: NIAID

    Abstract Building on our successful primate model studies, we aim to develop a one-time treatment for durable remission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the absence of antiretroviral medications. This treatment is an autologous HIV-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR, specifically CD4-MBL-CAR) T cell therapy that targets B cell follicles1,2. B cell follicles are an immune protected sit ...

  9. Simplified Transfemoral Carotid Angioplasty and Stenting Under FlowReversal Using a Novel Combination Access Sheath/Balloon System

    SBC: Marblehead Medical LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARYCarotid Artery Stenting (CAS) using embolic protection represents the current standard of care for patients with carotid artery stenosis considered at high risk for carotid endarterectomy. Distal filter devices are the most widely used protection devices, but these must be navigated through plaque prior to deployment, presenting a significant embolic risk. Strong evidence indicates ...

  10. Novel insulin-sensitizing NASH/diabetes drugs.

    SBC: BIOIO, LLC            Topic: 300

    Obesity is associated with an increased risk of a number of chronic and progressive diseases and obesity- related metabolic diseases constitute a significant public health burden. The increased likelihood of developing insulin resistance and diabetes is probably the most commonly recognized risk of being obese. In addition, obesity is also associated with accumulation of lipid in the liver parench ...
