  1. Assessing muscle health in older adults with electrical impedance myography

    SBC: Myolex Inc            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sarcopenia, or the deterioration of muscle health with advancing age, is a major public health concern in the developed world. Some of the most important factors underlying the development of sarcopenia are age- relatedchange in muscle composition, including the replacement of muscle fibers by fat and the loss of muscle force production. Declines in muscle comp ...

  2. Corrosion Protection of High-Value Test&Evaluation Assets

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T010

    This STTR Phase I proposal proposes to design and develop reactive filter media using nanofiber technology to capture corrosion inducing particulate matter present in coastal region air. The fibrous filter media will be functionalized using ion exchange chemistry which is known to react with salt ions. The media will be characterized for its filtration performance, resistance to airflow, and dus ...

  3. Development of Compounds for the Prevention and Treatment of Rhabdomyolysis

    SBC: Virtual Drug Development Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this Phase I STTR project is to establish the feasibility of developing a small-molecule therapeutic agent designed to prevent rhabdomyolysis-induced renal failure. Rhabdomyolysis accounts for 7% to 10% of cases of renal failure in the US. Rhabdomyolysis results from muscle injury that leads to the release of myoglobin, which is then deposited ...

  4. Innovative Polishing Technology for Fabrication of High Performance Epi-ready GaSb Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Antimony containing III-V semiconducting compounds are particularly attractive for the fabrication of a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photo detectors operating in the long wave infrared wavelength (12-32µm) range. The production of epi quality GaSb wafers still remains one of the important problems for rapid commercialization of GaSb devices. In Phase I effort, we ...

  5. Second generation MTI-101 analogs using a novel peptoid-peptide hybrid beta-hairp


    MTI-101 is a cyclic beta-hairpin peptide that binds CD44 with high affinity and kills multiple myeloma cell lines in vitro and blocks the growth of myeloma tumors in 2 different murine models. This interaction of MTI-101 with the surface of MM cells causesprogrammed cell necrosis, whereas all approved MM drugs cause apoptosis and so the novel mechanism of MTI-101 or MTI-like compounds makes it esp ...

  6. Targeting DNA damage response pathways for the treatment of advanced lung cancer


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is an urgent, unmet need for novel therapeutic approaches that are efficacious against lung cancer. Ranking first among cancer deaths in the U.S., this disease has 5-year relative survival rates of lt20%. Most lung cancers are non-small cell (NSCLC, 85% of cases). Curative surgery is not an option for the 80% of NSCLC patients who present with advanced s ...

  7. Therapeutic Neutralization of the Inflammasome After Spinal Cord Injury


    PROJECT SUMMARY Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a complex and devastating clinical condition mediated by proinflammatory cytokines that produce neuronal loss, axonal destruction, and demyelination during the secondary injury cascade. There are currently no proven therapies targeting posttraumatic inflammation that have been shown to have clinical value. We have previously shown that central nervous sy ...
