  6. Orally available transition state inhibitors for triple negative breast cancer

    SBC: Nanometics LLC            Topic: NCI

    Problem to be Solved: Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a deadly disease that accounts for 15-20% of all diagnosed breast cancers worldwide. Metastatic relapse of TNBC carries a poorer prognosis and lower survival rate compared to other breast cancersubtypes. Therefore, identifying novel targets and new therapeutics to treat patients diagnosed with TNBC remains a significant priority of the ...

  7. Modified RNA tools and diagnostics for drug abuse

    SBC: ATHGHIN BIOTECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary/Abstract RNA modifications are numerous, and range from simple methylation to complex changes such as addition of aminoacylcarbamoyl moieties. These modifications and, the levels at which are present, are emerging as important regulators of biological processes, and perturbations such as chemical or drug exposure can alter the patterns of specif ...

  9. Image-guided planning system for skull correction in children with craniosynostos

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Craniosynostosis is the premature fusion of cranial sutures and occurs in approximately one in 2000 live births. It results in cranial malformation that can lead to elevated intra-cranial pressure, brain growth impairment, and developmental deficiency. The most common treatment option for craniosynostosis is surgery. Currently, surgical treatment planning of cr ...

  10. Using Structuring Interacting RNAs (sxRNAs) as microRNA Inhibitors

    SBC: HocusLocus Inc.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose developing a trans-molecular RNA-switch for scientists to negatively affect the activity of endogenous microRNA for use as a molecular tool or therapeutic, an anti-miR. Since the discovery of miRNA, the creation of effective anti-miRs has been important, first to study and verify miRNA interactions, and, secondly, as a therapeutic tool. But, creating ...
