  1. Programming Metabolically Fit TILs for Immunotherapy

    SBC: Lipo-immuno Tech, LLC            Topic: NCI

    ABSTRACT Advances in molecular biology and genetic engineering have led to the design and use of modified T cells recognize tumors to achieve significant tumor control upon adoptive cell transfer (ACT) to patients. These T cells are either transduced with tumor antigen reactive T cell receptors (TCR), or chimeric antigen receptors (CARs). Recently, a surge in studies with neo-antigen reactive T ce ...

  2. Inhibitors of T3SS translocon assembly to combat multi-drug resistant P. aeruginosa

    SBC: MICROBIOTIX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    Abstract Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) is the bacterium most frequently isolated from the respiratory tract of ICU pa- tients in the US and is a major cause of pneumonia in intubated patients. Furthermore, infection with PA gener- ally has a poor prognosis, with an estimated 40-69% of PA ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) cases re- sulting in mortality, and more than 30% of survivors suffer recur ...

  3. Personalized anesthetic brain monitoring:Developing novel systems, sensors, and algorithms for aging, dementia, and Alzheimers disease patients

    SBC: PASCALL Systems, Incorporated            Topic: R

    PROJECT SUMMARY In the United States, nearly 100,000 patients receive general anesthesia and sedation daily to safely undergo surgical and non-surgical procedures. A high proportion of these patients are older than 65 years of age. These older patients are at higher risk of post-operative delirium and cognitive dysfunction. Many of these older patients have dementia, including mild cognitive impai ...

  4. A new generation, enhanced, corneal-birefringence-independent retinalscanning device for pediatric vision disorders using polarization modulation

    SBC: REBISCAN, Inc.            Topic: N

    Project Summary/Abstract !Amblyopia is vision loss caused by neglect of a structurally normal eye due to strabismus, asymmetric refraction (anisometropia), or deprivation. It is irreversible if not treated by age 7, but half of all patients in the U.S. are undetected and untreated until after it is too late, making it the leading cause of preventable vision loss. Rebion (Rebiscan, Inc) has develop ...

  5. Delivery of chemically modified PNA oligomers

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYRNA is a validated target for drug design, both as therapeutic and as a target. Targeting specific RNA, such as rRNA which are involved in proliferation and survival of bacteria is a promising approach. We are developing fast and low cost methods to screen sequence-specific small molecules for novel anti-ribosomal activities. We will construct sequence-specific chemically modified r ...

  6. Improving data capture in clinical research using a chatbot

    SBC: Dokbot, LLC            Topic: NLM

    PROJECT SUMMARY . Collecting complete and accurate outcome data directly from research participants is becoming increasingly important. Clinical researchers needs a cost-effective approach to capture high-quality patient-reported outcomes. Typically, data captured directly from participants is through self-administered questionnaires or through a human interviewer, each with their own advantages ...

  7. Analysis of new compounds to treat familial hypercholesterolemia

    SBC: GRUTHAN BIOSCIENCE LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY The long-term goal of the current proposal is to generate a new class of small molecules to treat familial hypercholesterolemia. Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) patients suffer from excessively high levels of Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), which if left untreated results in death from severe cardiovascular disease. FH is caused primarily by mutations in the LDL rec ...

  8. Treatment of diabetic retinopathy with TrkB agonist antibodies

    SBC: Zebra Biologics, Inc.            Topic: NEI

    Project Summary/AbstractDiabetic retinopathy (DR) is a major co-morbidity for patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The incidence and severity of DR increase with duration of diabetes and approximately 30 percent will experience vision-threatening deficits. Work over the past decade has shown that the neural deficits observed in DR occur early in the natural history of the disease and likely p ...

  9. Antioxidant enzyme-loaded Pro-NP for treatment of TBI.

    SBC: ProTransit Nanotherapy, LLC            Topic: 106

    ABSTRACT Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide and comes with a significant economic burden associated with emergency room visits and hospitalizations. Oxidative stress- mediated secondary injury post-TBI is a considerable risk factor for mortality and long-term impairment. Immediately following TBI, a cascade of biological responses leads to i ...

  10. An Economical Point-of-Care Software Solution Prototype for Medication Prior Authorization

    SBC: Breezmed            Topic: 104

    ABSTRACT This STTR Phase I project uses mixed-method formative evaluation strategies to develop, test, and evaluate an alpha prototype of Breezmed, a point-of-care electronic prior authorization web-based platform. Prior authorization burdens the current medical system, hampering a provider’s ability to efficiently prescribe medication and in a timely fashion. This often leads to treatment non-c ...
