  1. Multi-fold increase in the production of pharmaceutical insulin with Microbial Stem Cell Technology

    SBC: ASIMICA, INC.            Topic: 300

    PROJECT SUMMARY / ABSTRACT The goal of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel technology that is expected to boost yields from pharmaceutical industrial insulin production by greater than four-fold over conventional methods. Higher yields will lower production costs, generating savings that will ultimately be passed onto the millions of diabetic patients who require daily insuli ...

  2. Optimization of an integrin enhancing molecule for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy

    SBC: STRYKAGEN CORPORATION            Topic: OD

    Abstract Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a fatal muscle disease with a predicted incidence of 1 in 5000 males. DMD results from mutations in the gene encoding dystrophin, a 427 kDa scaffolding protein responsible for providing a mechanical link between the muscle fiber actin cytoskeleton and laminin in the extracellular matrix. The 7β1 integrin is a transmembrane linkage system in skeleta ...

  4. Development of a New Treatment for Diabetic Wounds

    SBC: NUTRIWYO LLC            Topic: NIDDK

    Abstract: Non-healing wounds affect ~25% of people with diabetes and represent a primary cause of amputation of lower limbs, which is an enormous clinical problem and a substantial economic burden. Given the lack of approved agents that effectively aid in the healing of diabetic wounds, a major need exists for developing novel pharmacological agents for treating diabetic wounds. Chronic diabetic w ...
