  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Disposable, medication-integrated tactile and motion sensor for glaucoma therapy compliance improvement

    SBC: Retinal Care Inc.            Topic: N

    ABSTRACT Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world. The number of people with primary open angle glaucoma is expected to exceed 100 million by 2040. The first-line therapy for glaucoma treatment is patient-administered hypotensive medication delivered topically via an eye drop. However, studies have consistently shown that patients rarely adhere to dosing recommendations ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Antioxidant enzyme-loaded Pro-NP for treatment of TBI.

    SBC: ProTransit Nanotherapy, LLC            Topic: 106

    ABSTRACT Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide and comes with a significant economic burden associated with emergency room visits and hospitalizations. Oxidative stress- mediated secondary injury post-TBI is a considerable risk factor for mortality and long-term impairment. Immediately following TBI, a cascade of biological responses leads to i ...

  7. An Economical Point-of-Care Software Solution Prototype for Medication Prior Authorization

    SBC: Breezmed            Topic: 104

    ABSTRACT This STTR Phase I project uses mixed-method formative evaluation strategies to develop, test, and evaluate an alpha prototype of Breezmed, a point-of-care electronic prior authorization web-based platform. Prior authorization burdens the current medical system, hampering a provider’s ability to efficiently prescribe medication and in a timely fashion. This often leads to treatment non-c ...
