  1. Topical application of heterologous protein-expressing Staphylococcus epidermidis for potential therapeutic treatment of skin diseases

    SBC: Azitra Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARY Current treatment options for a number of skin diseases generally aim for symptomatic relief and fail to address underlying pathophysiological changes leading to skin disease In the case of genetic mutations that cause loss of function mutations supplementation of the missing protein is a viable approach to treatment However delivery of functional protein to the target keratino ...

  2. Therapeutic inhibition of P. aeruginosa nitrogen respiration in chronic infection

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant The goal of this STTR is to identify novel small molecule compounds targeting the nitrogen respiration pathway of Pseudomonas aeruginosa This pathway is crucial to the pathogenesis of P aeruginosa in vivo but has not yet been exploited for antimicrobial drug discovery There is a clear need for new treatments to combat P aeruginosa infections Antibiotic re ...

  9. 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 ...
