  1. Development of small near-infrared laser system capable of improving immune respo


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The broad and long-term objective of this project is to amplify the effectiveness of vaccines without the use of chemical or biological adjuvants. We will address this objective by demonstrating the feasibility for small laser- based devices to enhance responses to intradermal vaccination. A number of investigators have shown that a promising new way to make va ...

  2. Novel Small Molecule Therapeutics for Pancreatic Cancer

    SBC: ChemRegen Inc            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary/Abstract Developing new ways to treat pancreatic cancer is a significant challenge. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and results in an estimated 37,000 deaths/year. Pancreatic cancer therapeutic options are limited to surgery and/or combinations of chemotherapy and radiation. Unfortunately, late-stage diagnosis of pancreat ...

  3. ChemoFilter: A Novel Catheter Device to Enable High-Dose Chemotherapy Treatment

    SBC: CHEMOFILTER, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary: Intravenous dosing of drugs for applications ranging from cancer chemotherapy to anti-microbials to lytic (blood clot dissolving) agents is limited by systemic toxicity. Currently, the only ways to remove drugs from the blood are throughnatural metabolism or costly impractical measures such as dialysis. Despite intense focus on targeted drug delivery agents, these therapies are c ...

  4. Developing Novel Therapies for Treating Breast-Cancer-Related Lymphedema

    SBC: ADEPTHERA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Destruction of lymphatic vessels during the treatment of breast cancer by surgery and/or radiation therapy can lead to the development of secondary lymphedema. The breast-cancer-related lymphedema is associated with debilitating limb swelling, chronic inflammation, tissue fibrosis, and increased susceptibility to infection. It has been estimated that approximat ...

  5. Intra-procedure Deformable Ultrasound-MRI Fusion for Prostate Biopsies

    SBC: ZMK Medical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    This proposal is a collaborative effort between Yale University and the medical device company Eigen to develop a more robust and accurate method for the deformable fusion of pre-operative magnetic resonance images (MRI) and intra-procedure trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) images to guide prostate biopsy. Prostate cancer is a major cause of death in the U.S. and biopsy is the gold-standard for its d ...

  6. Validation of a Novel Treatment for Glioblastoma


    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this application is to study in vivo efficacy of CT102, a newly discovered inhibitor of the OLIG2 transcription factor in animal models of glioblastoma (GBM), a highly underserved area of pharmacotherapy. In this proposal, the experienced drug discovery group at Curtana Pharmaceuticals Inc. will conduct a pre-clinical evaluation of selectivity ...

  7. Therapeutic Utility of renalase and renalase peptides in cisplatin-mediated renal

    SBC: BESSOR PHARMA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cisplatin is a cornerstone therapy for a number of cancers including testicular, bladder, ovarian and lung. It is also used to treat cancers in children. In all cases there is a high incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) that can also lead to later stage kidney damage. This risk limits its use. We have found in pilot studies that renalase, or peptide fragment ...

  8. Targeting of Myc-Max dimerization for the treatment of cancer


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Myc is a key transcriptional regulator due to its critical role in many fundamental cellular processes, such as cell cycle progression and cell growth. Therefore, dysregulation of Myc expression can lead to disease, including cancer. Myc is overexpressed in many human tumors, and it is estimated that 1 in 7 cancer deaths in the United States are resultant of hi ...

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


    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 ...

  10. DNP Polarization Agents for Real-Time Metabolic Imaging and Clinical Diagnosis

    SBC: DYNUPOL, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary / Abstract Although standard MRI techniques provide valuable structural insight, a related technique known as magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) adds powerful real-time metabolic information about the tissues under study. MRS provides early detection of disease, monitoring treatment efficacy, and, in the case of cancer, a dramatic reduction in unnecessary biopsies. However, bro ...
