  2. Analysis of new compounds to treat familial hypercholesterolemia

    SBC: GRUTHAN BIOSCIENCE LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY The long-term goal of the current proposal is to generate a new class of small molecules to treat familial hypercholesterolemia. Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) patients suffer from excessively high levels of Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), which if left untreated results in death from severe cardiovascular disease. FH is caused primarily by mutations in the LDL rec ...

  4. Delivery of chemically modified PNA oligomers

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYRNA is a validated target for drug design, both as therapeutic and as a target. Targeting specific RNA, such as rRNA which are involved in proliferation and survival of bacteria is a promising approach. We are developing fast and low cost methods to screen sequence-specific small molecules for novel anti-ribosomal activities. We will construct sequence-specific chemically modified r ...

  5. Programming Metabolically Fit TILs for Immunotherapy

    SBC: Lipo-immuno Tech, LLC            Topic: NCI

    ABSTRACT Advances in molecular biology and genetic engineering have led to the design and use of modified T cells recognize tumors to achieve significant tumor control upon adoptive cell transfer (ACT) to patients. These T cells are either transduced with tumor antigen reactive T cell receptors (TCR), or chimeric antigen receptors (CARs). Recently, a surge in studies with neo-antigen reactive T ce ...
