  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. Acid Ceramidase, Target for Cancer

    SBC: Sphingogene, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acid ceramidase (AC) has been implicated as a novel target for cancer therapy because of its pivotal role in regulating interconversion of three key bioactive lipids; ceramide (Cer), sphingosine (Sph) and Sphingosine-1-Phosphate (S1P). It is well known that Cer functions predominantly as a tumor suppressor lipid and mediator of apoptosis following chemo and rad ...

  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 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 ...

  5. Building Recognition by Function

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: ST081009

    The activity surrounding a building can provide functional information that is not available in static imagery. We propose to develop a method to classify buildings based on observed video activity that addresses the primary challenges of noisy, partial observables, and urban environments where buildings are close together. Our approach is based on probabilistic modeling of the activity surroundin ...

  6. Cardiac Regenerative Therapy with Cyclin A2

    SBC: VentriNova, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular disease is attributed to the lack of significant replicative potential of adult mammalian cardiomyocytes. Thus myocyte loss in response to ischemic injury typically results in scar formation and a decline of cardiac function that is usually irreversible. The cessation of myocyte proliferation is associated with ...

  7. Data acquisition system for multiplex analysis of color encoded particles

    SBC: ADVANCED BIOMEDICAL MACHINES INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The main goal of this project is a development of the high throughput data acquisition system based on single photon spectrometer which enables detection and highly accurate recognition of sets containing millions of stochastically encoded microparticles and the validation of this system using genome-wide copy number analysis as a model system. As an outcome of ...

  8. Data-Parallel Analytics on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs)

    SBC: SYSTAP, LLC            Topic: ST13B004

    The proposed effort will extend existing proofs of concept and advanced research systems to: (a) provide an efficient, low-level, data-parallel runtime for graph processing on GPUs; (b) provide a high-level abstraction for writing graph analytics that are

  9. Development and in vitro validation of therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis III

    SBC: Phoenix Nest Inc.            Topic: 105

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Sanfilippo disease mucopolysaccharidosis type III MPS III is a devastating neurodegenerative lysosomal storage disorder of childhood for which there is no cure or effective treatment available The fundamental cause of MPS III is an inherited mutation in one of the enzymes required to catabolize heparan sulfate HS a glycosaminoglycan which plays importa ...

  10. Development of ADAM10 Prodomain as a Therapeutic Agent

    SBC: BIOZYME, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent cancer therapies have focused on using biologics to target specific signal transduction pathways implicated in the tumor development or progression. For example, recombinant fusion proteins consisting of the extracellular domain of the immunoregluatory proteins and the constant (Fc) domain of immunoglobulin (IgG) represent a growing class of protein ther ...
