  1. A simple assay system for rapid detection of circulating tumor cells

    SBC: TELOVISION, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Metastasis or dissemination of primary tumor cells is the major cause of mortality in cancer patients Circulating tumor cells CTCs in the bloodstream are key players in the establishment of metastatic tumors Recent studies demonstrated that the number of CTCs present in patient blood directly correlate with cancer progression recurrence and survival rate ...

  2. Development of Peptide Antibiotic Nucleic Acids

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant One of the challenges of research in infectious diseases is to find ways to use the increasing knowledge of the mechanisms underlying disease transformation and progression to develop novel therapeutic strategies for diseases such as increasing menace of bacterial infections Targeting specific RNA such as rRNA which are involved in proliferation and survival ...

  4. Universal amplifier system for high-fidelity multi-modal biosignal recordings

    SBC: REFER2INPUT, LLC            Topic: 213

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant The measurement monitoring and use of bioelectric signals has evolved from the measurement of the electrical activity of the heart to encompass tissues ranging from cardiac skeletal and smooth muscles to brain and peripheral nerve tissues Together with this development has been the evolution of specialized equipment to capture and interpret these minute sig ...

  5. Self Powered Krypton-85 Wireless Sensor for Fuel Cycle Gas Emissions

    SBC: Ayers Group            Topic: 19g

    The Office of Nuclear Energy, fuel cycle research and development program, requires improved radioisotope detectors for spent fuel rod monitoring and process control. Processing spent fuel rods releases large amounts of the fission by-product gas krypton-85 (Kr-85). This beta emitting radioisotope gas has a 10.7 year half-life and must be captured and stored for up to 100 years. The health hazards ...

  6. Non-ATP competitive inhibitors of cyclin dependent kinases as cancer therapeutics

    SBC: PPI PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States with some sub-types remaining essentially untreatable, expansion of available drug targets will provide significant new options for the development ofmore effective antineoplastic agents. The major goal of this project is to apply a unique drug discovery strategy to cancer drug development. Th ...

  7. Development of a Novel Antimicrobial Foley Catheter to Prevent CAUTIs

    SBC: HYDROMER, INC.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are a leading cause of hospital-acquired infections and lead to increased costs, suffering and mortality. A primary contributor to CAUTI is formation of bacterial biofilms on indwelling catheters. Biofilms are inherently resistant to most antibiotics, and once established serve as a bacterial reservoir propag ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Use of EF2K Inhibitors to Reduce Toxicity to Normal Tissues in Chemotherapy

    SBC: LONGEVICA PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Eukaryotic elongation factor 2 protein kinase (eEF2K) is a ubiquitously expressed protein that belongs to a family of alpha kinases characterized by an atypical kinase domain. Our recent findings demonstrate that inhibition or genetic inactivation of eEF2K protects normal tissues from cytotoxic effects of chemotherapeutic agents and ionizing radiation. We hav ...

  10. Multi-Blot Western Device

    SBC: YC BIOELECTRIC LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this STTR project is to commercialize the protein multi-blot Western device, which contributes to improving the productivity and accuracy of conventional Western blot analysis. Although Western blotting has been used for more than three decades, this labor-and-cost demanding technique remains a key routine for a majority of life scien ...
