  4. Creating Medicare and Medicaid Research Files to Augment Census Survey Data

    SBC: Acumen, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This STTR proposal to the National Institute on Aging (NIA) requests funding to expand the capabilities of the Medicare Research Information Center (MedRIC) recently established by Acumen LLC with earlier support from NIA. The purpose of MedRIC is to facilitate the acquisition and linking of administrative data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service ...

  6. An Epithermal Neutron Source for Cancer Therapy

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop a commercial neutron source for the treatment of brain and liver cancer based on boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT). Boron-containing compounds are injected into a patient's bloodstream and accumulate in a malignant tumor. When irradiated with neutrons, the boron atoms preferentially capture neutrons and decay, releasing short-range radi ...

  7. Directed Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells using Phage Displayed Ligands

    SBC: OCATA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to culture human embryonic stem cells generated a great deal of excitement about their vast potential for treating a variety of human diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, neurological, retinal and skin disorders to name a few. Unlike adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells have indefinite growth potential and the potential to develop into any t ...

  8. Novel Inhibitors of Pim Protein Kinases

    SBC: Vortex Biotechnology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a growing body of evidence that implicates the protein kinase Pim-1 as a major driver of prostate cancer progression, and perhaps response to chemotherapy. Pim-1 is overexpressed in early prostate intraepithelial neoplasia and metastatic prostate cancer, and its levels predict response to therapy. Pim-1-overexpressing mouse prostate stem cells demonstr ...

  9. Genetic Assay for Inhibitors of RNA-Protein Interactions

    SBC: ADVANCED GENETIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): RNA-protein interactions play critical roles in cellular regulatory processes and in the life cycles of many pathogenic viruses, including HIV, hepatitis C, and West Nile virus, and thus represent attractive targets for therapeutics. Much of our previous work has centered on identifying and characterizing the components of key interactions and developing cell-b ...

  10. Identification of Anti-HIV Lead Compounds Targeting Rev

    SBC: ADVANCED GENETIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a significant need for novel HIV therapies given the emergence of viruses resistant to existing drug regimens. The Rev-RRE protein-RNA interaction in HIV plays an essential role in the transport of viral mRNA from the nucleus to the cytoplasm where it can be translated or packaged. In preliminary work, two distinct assays targeting the HIV Rev protein ...
