  1. 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 ...

  2. Removal of Amyloid-beta Peptides from the Alzheimer's Brain

    SBC: WE BIOSCIENCES, LLC            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As the Alzheimer's disease (AD) population is growing rapidly, currently there are no cure treatments. The goal of this resubmitted STTR proposal is to conduct a preclinical study with pramlintide to prove a potential treatment for AD. We have revised the proposal significantly according to the reviewers' comments. Pramlintide is an FDA approved drug ...

  3. Topically-delivered Targeted Gene Suppression of Immune Activation in Psoriasis

    SBC: Exicure, Inc.            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): AuraSense Therapeutics (AST), along with Northwestern University, is applying a recently developed technology using oligonucleotide-functionalized nanoparticles (called spherical nucleic acids or SNAs) to control protein expression. These easily synthesized nanoparticles can have either DNA or RNA shells, and are less than 50 nm in hydrodynamic diameter. SNA co ...

  4. Engineering Cytolytic Effectors to Eliminate Virus-Infected and Cancer Cells

    SBC: IMMUVEN, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary The goal of this STTR grant application is to engineer powerful NK cell-based cytolytic effector cells for therapeutic applications. The cells will combine the selectivity and specificity of T cells and the ability of NK cells to mediate effective cytolytic activity against a wide spectrum of aberrant cells, including those with impaired adhesion properties. To achieve this goal we ...

  5. Mucins in the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Pancreatic Diseases

    SBC: Sanguine Diagnostics And Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Due to its asymptomatic nature and lack of methods for early detection, gt 80% of pancreatic cancer (PC) patients present with an unresectable primary tumor with distant metastasis at the time of diagnosis. While the overall 5 year survival rate of pancreatic cancer is dismal, significantly better outcomes have been reported for smaller tumors detected at an e ...

  6. Developing Therapeutics That Target RAD51 to Treat Leukemia and Lymphoma

    SBC: Cyteir Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Genomic instability is a hallmark of cancer, yet is underdeveloped as a therapeutic target area The central goal of this program is to develop new cancer therapeutics that target genomic instability as a hallmark of cancer cells, bringing new, cancer-cell selective treatments to the clinical oncology market. Two key challenges in current cancer therapy are mini ...

  7. Functional-selection of affinity reagents against DNA-protein complexes using targeted chromatin sequences

    SBC: AXIOMX INC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Site-specific binding of proteins to DNA plays an important role in cell development, cell signaling, the cell cycle, and diseases such as cancer. There are two overarching goals to this proposal: (1) to develop a meansfor the identification of proteins bound to specific DNA sequences, and (2) to develop a better method for the identification of immunoprecipita ...

  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. Microbial Surrogate Assay for Environmental PAH Exposure

    SBC: ARPHION LTD.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Arphion is a company established to develop noninvasive products that will be used to diagnose, prevent, and treat head and neck and other cancers. 41,000 people are diagnosed with head and neck cancer (HNC) every yearin the United States, with 8,000 deaths. Tens of millions of people in the US are at increased risk for HNC due to exposure to the polycyclic ary ...

  10. Flexible Ion-Mediated Artificial Retina

    SBC: LAMBDAVISION, INC.            Topic: NEI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A flexible, protein-based, ion-mediated retinal implant is proposed for the restoration of vision for patients with retinal degenerative diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa(RP). The implant under development uses the retinal- containing protein, bacteriorhodopsin (BR), to convert light into a pH gradient. This gradi ...
