  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
