  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Hand Rehabilitation using Variable Assistance through Force and EMG Feedback

    SBC: KORONIS BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project proposes to develop and evaluate a hand rehabilitation system for chronic hemiparetic stroke survivors that have lost their ability to full control their hand. Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability, and is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Stroke survivors often face a significant loss of functional motor control in ...

  4. 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. ...

  5. Prevention of erectile dysfunction following prostate cancer radiotherapy

    SBC: Humanetics Corporation            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of this proposal is to evaluate BIO 300 as an effective therapy to prevent and/or mitigate the erectile dysfunction (ED) that is commonly observed following radiotherapy (RT) for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the United States. Approximately half of prostate cancer patients will undergo RT as a part of thei ...

  6. Real-time bioimpedance based biopsy device

    SBC: RYTEK MEDICAL, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over the last three decades the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer has increased 85% as a result of new screening and diagnostic tools. However, a significant number of these newly diagnosed men are harboringclinically insignificant disease, which means that they are not likely to die from prostate cancer. A difficul decision facing urologists daily i ...

  7. Small Molecule Inhibitors of HIV1 Nef Virulence Factor for Treatment of HIV_AIDS

    SBC: Fox Chase Chemical Diversity Center, Inc.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION: While HIV/AIDS can be managed with antiretroviral drugs that block viral replication, these agents do not clear the virus and require life-long drug administration with associated risks of cumulative toxicity and drug resistance. Recently, wediscovered a completely new class of compounds that interfere with the HIV-1 virulence factor, Nef. This viral protein is critical to HIV-1 repli ...

  8. Small Molecule Antagonists of PF4 for the Treatment and Prevention of HIT

    SBC: Fox Chase Chemical Diversity Center, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    We have discovered the first-ever inhibitors of PF4, a platelet protein central to the pathophysiology of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT). Heparin is a naturally-occurring anticoagulant that prevents the formation of clots and extension of existingclots within the vasculature, and major medical applications of heparin include dialysis, cardiac catheterization, and cardiopulmonary bypass sur ...
