  4. Harvesting specific plant metabolites from hairy root cultures using magnetized n

    SBC: NAPROGENIX, INC.            Topic: NCCIH

    DESCRIPTION: Plants produce a wide variety of valuable bioactive metabolites, but these are commonly present in low concentrations in the wild-type plant. This makes the separation and purification of these compounds complicated and expensive. The applicant company, Naprogenix Inc, has developed a technology for increasing the yields of specific bioactive metabolites in mutant plant cell cultures ...

  5. Mitochondrial Uncoupling as a Therapeutic Target in Obesity

    SBC: Nano-Mite Technologies, LLC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obesity is recognized as a national and global epidemic, as approximately 65% of adults in the United States are classified as overweight or obese as defined by body mass index (BMI). In fact, in the year 2000, the human race reached a historical landmark, when for the first time in history the number of adults with excess weight surpassed the number of those w ...

  6. Exosomal drug formulations

    SBC: 3P BIOTECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): More people in the U.S. (160,340 per year) die of lung cancer than of prostate, breast, and colon cancer combined. The most common type of lung cancer, non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), accounts for 75% of all lung cancers. Regrettably, 85% of all patients diagnosed with NSCLC eventually die of the disease within 5 years, due to micro-metastasis and relapse. ...

  7. 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 ...

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

    SBC: CUMBERLAND PHARMACEUTICALS INC.            Topic: NIEHS

    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 ...

  9. Multi-Blot Western Device

    SBC: YC BIOELECTRIC LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this STTR project is to commercialize the protein multi-blot Western device, which contributes to improving the productivity and accuracy of conventional Western blot analysis. Although Western blotting has been used for more than three decades, this labor-and-cost demanding technique remains a key routine for a majority of life scien ...

  10. Minimal piggyBac vectors for chromatin integration

    SBC: EXSCIEN CORPORATION            Topic: NIGMS

    In this grant, we describe novel transposon piggyBac vectors engineered to deliver transgenes as efficiently as currently available piggyBac systems, but with significantly less helper DNA co-delivered into the host genome. To generate these plasmids, we first identified an important and previously unreported aspect of transposon biology, that the full-length terminal domains required for successf ...
