  1. Using Structuring Interacting RNAs (sxRNAs) as microRNA Inhibitors

    SBC: HocusLocus Inc.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose developing a trans-molecular RNA-switch for scientists to negatively affect the activity of endogenous microRNA for use as a molecular tool or therapeutic, an anti-miR. Since the discovery of miRNA, the creation of effective anti-miRs has been important, first to study and verify miRNA interactions, and, secondly, as a therapeutic tool. But, creating ...

  4. POC 2-D Diffusion Assay for self-monitoring of BNP

    SBC: SENTILUS            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this STTR proposal is to develop a 2-D diffusion point-of-care assay (POC) for B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP). The primary goal of the proposed work is to create a test format that will allow patientswith chronic heart failure to quantitatively self-monitor serum levels of BNP. Determination of baseline level of BNP and changes in this level ...

  6. Orally available transition state inhibitors for triple negative breast cancer

    SBC: Nanometics LLC            Topic: NCI

    Problem to be Solved: Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a deadly disease that accounts for 15-20% of all diagnosed breast cancers worldwide. Metastatic relapse of TNBC carries a poorer prognosis and lower survival rate compared to other breast cancersubtypes. Therefore, identifying novel targets and new therapeutics to treat patients diagnosed with TNBC remains a significant priority of the ...
