  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 ...

  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. Aminoglycosides with reduced ototoxicity

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARY Aminoglycosides are one of the cheapest and well known antibiotics in clinical use for over years but one of the major limitations in their use is their ototoxicity We are developing fast and low cost methods to develop aminoglycosides with anti ribosomal activities and reduced toxicity In this project we will identify novel aminoglycoside antibacterials that show reduced ...

  6. A New MicroRNA-1291 Replacement Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer Disease

    SBC: MIRNA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. There is a clear need for more effective therapies to treat deadly pancreatic cancer disease. MicroRNAs (miRNA or miR) are a large group of short, noncoding RNAs that control posttranscriptional gene expression in human cells, and there is increasing evidence for the exi ...

  7. A novel 3D cell culture human uterine contractility assay for high-throughput scr

    SBC: CHEMOSEN3D, INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Several disorders in reproductive medicine are results of changes in smooth muscle contractile activity. Increased myometrial contraction can lead to preterm labor, which affects 12% of the US population. However, the mechanisms involved in the transition from uterine quiescence to contractility at the onset of labor are not well-known. As a result, the managem ...

  8. A novel protein engineering tool for rapid manufacturing of designer nucleosomes

    SBC: Epicypher, Inc.            Topic: 103

    PROJECT SUMMARY Nucleosomes are the basic building blocks of chromatin and composed of bp DNA wrapped around a core histone octamer Chromatin function is controlled by the dynamic addition removal of histone post translational modifications PTMs Significantly alterations in specific PTMs are associated with changes in gene expression driving the emergence progression of many cancer ...
