  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. A Magnetocardiography System

    SBC: CARDIOMAG IMAGING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): About 250,000 Americans a year die of coronary heart disease without being hospitalized, and most of these are sudden deaths caused by cardiac arrest. Due to similarities of cardiovascular physiology and genetic structure to humans, biomedical research has increasingly employed the mouse in models of human disease, which has provided powerful tools for investig ...

  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. Antisense Treatment for Thalassemia. Preclinical study.

    SBC: ERCOLE BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate goal of this project is treatment of beta-thalassemia, a genetic blood disease, with antisense oligonucleotides. The project is based on the technology developed by the PI in which antisense oligonucleotides are used to restore correct functioning of a defective gene rather than, as commonly practiced, to inhibit the expression of an undesirable ge ...

  6. Autism Education and Treatment with PowerPoint Software

    SBC: ACCELERATIONS EDUCATIONAL SOFTWARE            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): PowerPoint(R) multimedia software is ubiquitous in our schools but its capacity for teaching children with autism spectrum and related disorders barely has been realized. This STTR (Phase I) project will begin to change this state of affairs by researching and developing empirically derived multimedia teaching tools. Encouraged by early-stage feasibility work, ...

  7. Autism Treatment The Pivotal Skills Trainer

    SBC: ACCELERATIONS EDUCATIONAL SOFTWARE            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This STTR (Phase 1) project begins the translation of untapped scientific findings into an improved software tool for teaching children with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities. The project evaluates a package to train teachers to use software called the Pivotal Skills Trainer and examines whether doing so improves preschoolers' functional communic ...

  8. Building Teacher Mastery via an Internet Training System

    SBC: TANGLEWOOD RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this Phase II STTR is to complete the development of a web-based training system, the All Stars Online Community. This system is designed to improve teachers' delivery of All Stars, an adolescent substance use prevention program. The goal of training is to help teachers advance in their teaching skills and understanding of underlying preventi ...

  9. Cancer detection technology

    SBC: Endomedix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phase I: It has become increasingly clear that the metastatic potential of solid cancer best correlates with the nature of the cells emigrating from the primary tumors. These emigrating cells enter the circulatory system and thus can readily be recovered using a simple and minimally invasive procedure. However, molecular analysis of these cells remains technic ...

  10. Compact High Power Microwave Systems

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: MDA04T009

    High Power Microwave (HPM) systems capable of generating gigawatts of power for pulse lengths of microseconds have significant military applications. The military utility would be even greater if such systems could be packaged for placement in current Army mobile platforms (long range and short range), on UAVs, or in aircraft. Previous simulations have shown that the proposed device is capable o ...
