  1. 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 ...

  2. Advanced Assessment to Accelerate Diagnostic Skill Acquisition

    SBC: Parallel Consulting, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current approaches to medical education produce new physicians with insufficient clinical competency to practice effectively with limited supervision, which has serious implications for patient outcomes during hospitaloff hours. Up to 70% of patients admitted to a hospital are admitted on nights or weekends, when staffing is low and residents may be in charge o ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A molecularly targeted pre- and post-exposure vaccine for anthrax

    SBC: VLP BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant We have shown that immunization of rabbits with multiple antigenic peptides MAPs displaying sequence from domain of protective antigen PA elicit antibodies specific for a linear determinant within the loop of PA that mediate potent neutralization of lethal toxin LeTx in vitro We have now shown in two separate large studies that antibodies aga ...

  5. Amplification-free megabase target-enrichment for next-generation sequencing

    SBC: Mission Bio, Inc.            Topic: NHGRI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Target enrichment for next-generation sequencing enables researchers to reduce the burden of sequence data analysis, obtain higher levels of statistical significance by examining more genomes and increase sequencing coverage depth. The goal of this STTR proposal is to develop and commercialize a novel technology capable of amplification-free megabase target seq ...

  6. A Multivalent Lyme Disease Vaccine Targeting Tick-Host-Pathogen Interactions

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant This proposal seeks to develop a novel vaccine against Lyme disease by targeting Ixodes scapularis proteins critical for Borrelia burgdorferi transmission from the tick to mammalian host Earlier work has identified four tick proteins Salp TRE tHRF and TSLPI that facilitate different steps of spirochete transmission and immunity against these protein ...

  7. A New MicroRNA-1291 Replacement Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer Disease

    SBC: MIRNA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. There is a clear need for more effective therapies to treat deadly pancreatic cancer disease. MicroRNAs (miRNA or miR) are a large group of short, noncoding RNAs that control posttranscriptional gene expression in human cells, and there is increasing evidence for the exi ...

  8. A novel 3D cell culture human uterine contractility assay for high-throughput scr

    SBC: CHEMOSEN3D, INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Several disorders in reproductive medicine are results of changes in smooth muscle contractile activity. Increased myometrial contraction can lead to preterm labor, which affects 12% of the US population. However, the mechanisms involved in the transition from uterine quiescence to contractility at the onset of labor are not well-known. As a result, the managem ...

  9. A novel therapeutic approach for Acute Lung Injury/ARDS

    SBC: BIOMARCK PHARMACEUTICALS, LTD            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of the proposed project is to advance the development of novel peptides targeting MARCKS (Myristoylated Alanine-Rich C Kinase Substrate) protein as platform drug molecules for the treatment of Acute Lung Injury (ALI) and its more severe form, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), thereby providing the first pharmacologic therapeutic for this ...

  10. Anti-Pseudomonas Immunotherapy and Targeted Drug Delivery

    SBC: SORRENTO THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Antibody therapy for serious bacterial infections using polyclonal immune antitoxin or anti capsule horse serum actually predates small molecule antibiotic use However for reasons of safety convenient empirical use and cost the development of broader spectrum antibiotics rapidly supplanted the use of immune serum But drug resistance is quickly reducing th ...
