  1. AAV2-ASPA-Based Metabolic Intervention for Alzheimer's Disease

    SBC: ASKLEPIOS BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: NIA

    Abstract We propose to initiate preclinical development of a gene therapeutic targeted to Alzheimer's Disease. The World Health Organization's and Alzheimer's Disease International's report on Dementia (2012) recognizes that the global burden of AlzheimerDisease is forecast to worsen significantly with prevalence predicted to double every 20 years. Interventions that could prov ...

  2. A BioPhysical Approach to Resuscitation Fluids

    SBC: BIOPHYZICA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Circulatory, hypoxemic or traumatic arrest claims an estimated 350,000 lives per year in the United States accounting for almost 15% of all deaths. Circulatory, hypoxemic, or traumatic arrests result in whole-body ischemia, most significantly global cerebral ischemia. Brain cells die when they no longer receive oxygen and nutrients from the blood. Because cereb ...

  5. Acid Ceramidase, Target for Cancer

    SBC: Sphingogene, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acid ceramidase (AC) has been implicated as a novel target for cancer therapy because of its pivotal role in regulating interconversion of three key bioactive lipids; ceramide (Cer), sphingosine (Sph) and Sphingosine-1-Phosphate (S1P). It is well known that Cer functions predominantly as a tumor suppressor lipid and mediator of apoptosis following chemo and rad ...

  7. A 3-D Robot Design to Overcome Arm Dysfunction in Stroke

    SBC: LAM DESIGN MANAGEMENT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Disturbances in movement coordination are the least well understood but often the most debilitating with respect to functional recovery following stroke. These deficits in coordination are expressed in the form of abnormal muscle synergies and result in limited and stereotypic movement patterns that are functionally disabling. The result of these constraints i ...

  9. A Magnetocardiography System

    SBC: CARDIOMAG IMAGING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): About 250,000 Americans a year die of coronary heart disease without being hospitalized, and most of these are sudden deaths caused by cardiac arrest. Due to similarities of cardiovascular physiology and genetic structure to humans, biomedical research has increasingly employed the mouse in models of human disease, which has provided powerful tools for investig ...

  10. A Millimeter-wave Tunable Cavity for Ultra-sensitive Solids and Liquids DNP-NMR at Low Budget

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: NIA

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NMR is probably the most powerful and widely used analytical technique for structure determination and function elucidation of molecules of all types, but it suffers from low sensitivity, particularly for insoluble biological macromolecules. Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) with Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) has recently demonstrated S/N gains exceeding t ...
