  1. Aminoglycosides with reduced ototoxicity via miRNA targeting

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYAminoglycosides are one of the cheapest and well-known antibiotics in clinical use for over 70 years, but one of the major limitations in their use is their ototoxicity. We are developing fast and low cost methods to develop aminoglycosides with anti- ribosomal activities and reduced toxicity. In this project, we will identify novel aminoglycoside antibacterials, that show reduced o ...

  5. IRE1beta Inhibitors: Novel Therapeutics to Manage Excess Mucus in Asthma

    SBC: Irex Pharma LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARY Over 25 million Americans have asthma, which places an economic burden on the U.S. of $81.9 billion. Airway mucus overproduction is a hallmark of asthma, and the quantity and tenacity of mucus are increased during airway exacerbations. Mucolytics degrade mucus, but do not reduce its production. Although corticosteroids and other anti-inflammatory therapies indirectly decrease mucus ...

  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. Targets of Acquired Tick-Resistance As Anti-Tick Vaccines

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    ABSTRACTThis proposal seeks to develop a novel vaccine against pathogens transmitted by the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis, by targeting tick salivary proteins (Salps) critical for tick feeding. I. scapularis Salps provide functions critical for evading host defense responses detrimental to the tick. Further, these salivary functions are also co-opted by tick-transmitted pathogens to ensure t ...

  9. A novel vaccine against mosquito-borne Zika virus based on mosquito salivary gland protein AgBR1

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYZika virus, an emerging flavivirus, is associated with severe clinical outcomes, including Guillain-Barré syndrome and birth defects. Transmission of Zika virus is primarily mosquito- borne. Mosquito salivary proteins are known to enhance infectivity and pathogenesis in Zika, dengue and West Nile viruses by modulating immune responses. This proposal seeks to develop a novel vaccine ...

  10. Immunization with mosquito AgTRIO protein to prevent malaria

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYMalaria is one of the world’s major public health threats. The disease is transmitted when an infected female Anopheles mosquito, while probing for a blood meal, injects saliva together with Plasmodium sporozoites into the skin of the vertebrate host (1, 2). To date, a highly effective, safe and FDA-approved human vaccine against malaria has not been developed. The most establishe ...
