  1. Osteochondral tissue repair in an ovine model using a 3D woven poly (e-caprolacto

    SBC: Cytex Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Standard microfracture is a first-line, widely used and cost-effective surgical technique for repairing damaged articular cartilage, but, it is limited by decreased long-term efficacy and limited applicability in largerlesions. This leads to a burgeoning economic burden associated with primary and follow-up treatment costs, estimated at more than 40 billion dol ...

  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. 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 ...

  4. A Synthetic Human Cytomegalovirus Vaccine Platform

    SBC: TOMEGAVAX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to synthesize, based on genomic sequence information, a human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) strain with demonstrated ability to establish persistent infection in sero-positive individuals. The resulting synthetic product will form the basis for the development of attenuated HCMV vaccines. Innovative synthetic biology methods will overcome ...

  5. Targeting c-Myc and Akt with PP2A reactivation therapy for the treatment of breas

    SBC: ONCOTIDE PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year in the United States over 270,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 40,000 will die from the disease. While multiple forms of breast cancer exist, a common theme in most of the forms involvesaberrations in signal transduction pathways that lead to inhibition of the programmed cell death process known as apoptosis. Apoptosis is a care ...

  6. Neuroimaging tools for presurgical brain mapping

    SBC: PRISM CLINICAL IMAGING, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) tools to assist the diagnosis and treatment of human patients with a brain tumor or other operable pathology. The specific focus of this proposal is to produce a practical, clinic-ready suite of MR imaging methods, analyses and display tools to solve the number one impediment to ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. The Retroject Device: A Novel Approach to Glaucoma Drug Delivery

    SBC: RETROJECT, INC.            Topic: NEI

    PROJECT ABSTRACT Glaucoma is a common neurodegenerative disease which is the 2nd leading cause of blindness in the United States. With the aging baby boomer population, these numbers will continue to increase exponentially over the next few decades. With glaucomatous progression, there is ultimately damage to the optic nerve which results in peripheral vision loss. It has been shown in many prior ...

  9. Presurgical brain mapping with functional connectivity MRI

    SBC: PRISM CLINICAL IMAGING, INC.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The diagnosis and treatment of patients with brain tumors and other diseases is often critically dependent on functional neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI) to identify healthy brain tissue that must be avoided during invasive surgery or radiation treatment. But, conventional fMRI often fails (up to 30 percent) or cannot be used with patients who are unable to adequately ...

  10. 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% ...
