  3. Novel Home-Based and Low-Cost ECG Device for periodic evaluation of the presence of atrial fibrillation

    SBC: Global Instrumentation, LLC            Topic: 600

    Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) prevalence is estimated to 1% of the general population in the United States. A shocking 30% to 60% (according to studies) of patients with AF are unaware of their diagnosis (silent AF). Most AF patients will suffer from congestive heart failure or/and develop thromboembolic events leading to a dramatic reduction of patients’ quality of life, and a significant c ...

  4. Monoclonal antibodies targeting novel sites of vulnerability in marburg virus glycoprotein

    SBC: Integrated Biotherapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    Filoviruses, consisting of two major virus families including the ebolaviruses and marburgviruses (MARV and RAVV), cause periodic outbreaks of severe viral hemorrhagic fever with mortality rates as high as 90%. Since it is difficult to predict the species that would dominate future outbreaks, development of broadly protective therapeutics to prevent and manage future filovirus outbreaks is of high ...

  10. Aminoglycosides with reduced ototoxicity via miRNA targeting

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYAminoglycosides are one of the cheapest and well-known antibiotics in clinical use for over 70 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 o ...
