  1. An Advanced Biosensor for Molecular Interaction Studies.

    SBC: MOLECULAR SENSING, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Molecular interactions form the foundation of biology and chemistry. They are central to life itself and determine catalytic activity, cellular function, and therapeutic efficacy. The vast majority of diagnostic procedures depend on some type of specific molecular interaction. Therefore, the ability to perform pure liquid-phase molecular binding analysis at hi ...

  2. Controlling mechanical signal transduction to treat osteoarthritis

    SBC: Cytex Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Controlling mechanical signal transduction to treat osteoarthritis Abstract The TRPV4 calcium (Ca++) permeable ion channel has been shown to be expressed and functional in chondrocytes, the cells responsible for the maintenance of cartilage in weight-bearing joints. Trauma of joints with subsequent damage of cartilage, as well as chronically increased joint loa ...

  3. Early Warning system for detecting pre-eclampsia

    SBC: Convergent Engineering, Inc.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Preeclampsia, a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy, is a leading cause of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality around the world, responsible for approximately 76,000 maternal and 500,000 infant deaths per year.As a heterogeneous and poorly understood disorder, its pathogenesis and possible treatments are an area of active research. While the majority o ...

  4. Establishing BRM Polymorphisms as Predictive Biomarkers for Lung Cancer Risk

    SBC: ZENAGENE, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While there is no doubt smoking is a direct causative factor underlying the development of lung cancer, not every smoker develops lung cancer. In fact, only 10-15% of smokers develop this disease, indicating that otherfactors make certain individuals more susceptible to cancer. A number of single nucleotide polymorphisms are known to correlate with the developm ...

  5. Evaluation of a new class of molecules for treating MRSA infective endocarditis

    SBC: AGILE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Patients with infective endocarditis (IE) have a poor prognosis with one third of the patients succumbing to the infection within the first year. Treatments for endocarditis involve antibiotic therapy and/or surgery that cost upwards of 100,000 per patient; however, many cases do not respond to the antibiotic treatment and surgery poses high risks. Cases of en ...

  6. Fluorescence Intensity-based Scoring of Macromolecule Crystallization Plates

    SBC: IXPRESSGENES, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Crystallization, followed by subsequent structure determination, is a major step in understanding the structure- function relationship of macromolecules. Understanding macromolecule structure has become a key part in the development of new pharmaceuticals, and is a major area of NIH research. Crystallization however is also the rate limiting step, despite techn ...

  7. Functional Tissue Engineering for Cartilage Repair

    SBC: Cytex Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this study is to develop a tissue-engineered total joint replacement from an engineered biomaterial scaffold combined with adult bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for regeneration ofthe entire femoral surface of the hip joint. We have developed a novel three-dimensionally (3D) woven scaffold that mimics the biomechanical prop ...

  8. Identification of potent and selective GLI1 inhibitors

    SBC: ZEN-BIO, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Characterization of human tumor samples and cell lines in combination with inhibitor studies in animal models has established a central role for the Hh pathway in a vast array of cancer types, including small-cell lung, pancreatic, oesophageal, prostate, breast, colon, liver and ovarian cancers. Hh signaling is now implicated in approximately 20-25% of all can ...

  9. Medical Images, HTML5, and Clinical Trial Remote Collaboration

    SBC: HEART IMAGING TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Medical drugs and devices are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) based on data from multicenter clinical trials. In 2010, U.S. spending on clinical trials was approximately 25 billion. Over the past decade the efficiency of clinical trials has been improved by electronic data capture (EDC) systems, whose use has increased from 38% to 61% ...

  10. Neurorestorative therapy of stroke with HUCBC in T2DM rats

    SBC: SANERON CCEL THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetes mellitus (DM) leads to a 3-4 fold higher risk of experiencing ischemic stroke. In addition, DM stroke patients are more prone to develop more and earlier white matter (WM) high-intensity lesions than non DM stroke patients. Treatment of stroke with tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) at 2-3 hours after stroke decreases lesion volume in non-DM rats. How ...
