  1. Treating EAE disease with Fc-Dimers

    SBC: LeukoSight Inc            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have developed a recombinant polypeptide that we have termed Fc-Dimers (Di -mers). This product has potent anti-inflammatory activity in vitro, and we propose to test this reagent in an animal model of autoimmunedisease. We have selected the murine disease, Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE), a model for human multiple sclerosis (MS). Pathol ...

  2. Development of Novel Agents Targeting Genome Stability and Maintenance for Treati

    SBC: NERX BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is uniformly fatal once resistance to platinum based therapy (Pt) is observed. Innate resistance is observed in approximately 25% of the nearly 22,000 annual cases of EOC, where the cancer is intrinsically refractory to Pt therapy. The remaining 75% of women have Pt sensitive disease and will respond with remission lasting up to ...

  3. Targeting RNA conformation for drug development

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    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 AIDS. Targeting specific RNA- protein interactions, such as Tat-TAR or Rev-RRE, which are involved in proliferation and survival of HIV-1 is a pro ...

  4. Discerning Pathological and Braxton Hicks Contractions in Mid-Trimester Gestation

    SBC: CERVOCHECK, LLC            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This STTR Phase I Project will determine if uterine activity measured from the utero-cervico- vaginal wall can be a predictor for discerning Braxton Hicks (false) contractions and pathological (true) labor contractionsin mid-gestation pregnancies. We will use a previously developed prototype to measure uterine activity from the utero-cervico-vaginal interface t ...

  5. COA360H: A Tool to Assess Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations

    SBC: DayStar Research            Topic: NIMHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I STTR application seeks support for research to enhance the commercial viability of a tool to assess the cultural competence of health care organizations. The Cultural-competency Organizational Assessment - 360 (COA360) is a web-based tool to measure the cultural competence of healthcare organizations. Major changes in the regulatory environment ...

  6. Development of VPL Vaccine for RSV

    SBC: SIGMOVIR BIOSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    Project Summary Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is recognized as the single most important viral cause of acute respiratory disease in infants and young children worldwide. Elderly populations and immunocompromised individuals are also at significant risk for serious RSV disease. Despite this very substantial disease burden imposed by RSV worldwide, there are no vaccines available. Severa ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Developing a Nrf2 activator for the treatment of scleroderma

    SBC: CUREVEDA, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Scleroderma is a devastating autoimmune disease with a chronic course, involving the overproduction of collagen leading to fibrosis of the skin and connective tissues. The disease has a range of symptoms including pain,stiffness and swelling of the joints, shortness of breath and gastrointestinal complications. More than 50% of patients with the aggressive form ...

  9. Clinical Translation of Augmented Reality Visualization for Laparoscopic Surgery

    SBC: IGI TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall objective of the proposed research is to fully develop and conduct clinical translation of a novel technology that provides minimally invasive surgeons an ability to visualize exposed organ surfaces as wellas structures hidden by them, together with a true appreciation of depth. A long-standing need in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery has bee ...
