  1. New Class of Bright, Sharp, Tunable Near-Infrared Fluorophores for Flow Cyto

    SBC: Nirvana Sciences, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Polychromatic flow cytometry [FC] is one of the most powerful analytical techniques routinely used in immunology. Flow cytometry plays a critical role in several growing clinical applications: leukemia and lymphoma immunophenotyping for diagnosis and sub-categorization (now using 8-10 colors); in CD4/CD8 measurement in HIV-positive patients; and in HLA typing f ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. AAV2-ASPA-Based Metabolic Intervention for Alzheimer's Disease

    SBC: ASKLEPIOS BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: NIA

    Abstract We propose to initiate preclinical development of a gene therapeutic targeted to Alzheimer's Disease. The World Health Organization's and Alzheimer's Disease International's report on Dementia (2012) recognizes that the global burden of AlzheimerDisease is forecast to worsen significantly with prevalence predicted to double every 20 years. Interventions that could prov ...

  4. CMV Vectored Herpes Simplex Vaccine

    SBC: TOMEGAVAX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The longterm goal of this project is to utilize cytomegalovirus (CMV) vectors in the development of a therapeutic vaccine against herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2), the causative agent of genital herpes. HSV-2 is widely prevalent in the population causing recurrent genital lesions and significantly increasing the risk for other sexually transmitted diseases such a ...

  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. F10: a novel therapeutic to treat refractory or relapsed AML

    SBC: SOUTHEAST TECH INVENTURES            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) affected ~14,600 new patients in 2013 in the US and caused over 10,000 deaths, primarily in older adults. The current chemotherapy regimen, a combination of cytarabine (AraC) and anthracyclines such as daunorubicin (DNR), has resulted in 5-year survival rates of only 30-40% (less than 10% in patients over 60 years old). The principa ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Developing a Novel eHealth Application for Oral Systemic Issues during Pregnancy

    SBC: InterVision Media            Topic: NIDCR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Oral disease is a silent epidemic because of its prevalence and missed prevention opportunities. Evidence has established connections between oral-systemic etiologies, including the effects of periodontal disease (PD), and a range of health outcomes and co-morbidities across the lifecourse (e.g., adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes; early childhood carries; ...

  9. Development of fluorescence-based receptor binding assays for the detection

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are becoming frequent occurrences off the coasts of the United States, particularly in coastal waters of New England, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Pacific Ocean. Historically, HABs have beenassociated with fish kills and marine mammal mortalities; however, their effects on human health and economic loss due to HAB contamination of se ...

  10. Rapid Screening Assay for Novel Epigenetic Drugs

    SBC: Nzumbe, Inc.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A hallmark of virtually every cancer is aberrant epigenetic silencing of vital genes required for a normal cell cycle and genome stability (e.g. MLH1, BRCA1, VHL, p16, etc.). Loss of expression of these tumor suppressorgenes plays a critical role in cancer formation and growth. Thus, targeting this root cause of cancer has significant potential to treat and pot ...
