  3. Engineering Cytolytic Effectors to Eliminate Virus-Infected and Cancer Cells

    SBC: IMMUVEN, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary The goal of this STTR grant application is to engineer powerful NK cell-based cytolytic effector cells for therapeutic applications. The cells will combine the selectivity and specificity of T cells and the ability of NK cells to mediate effective cytolytic activity against a wide spectrum of aberrant cells, including those with impaired adhesion properties. To achieve this goal we ...

  4. Developing Therapeutics That Target RAD51 to Treat Leukemia and Lymphoma

    SBC: Cyteir Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Genomic instability is a hallmark of cancer, yet is underdeveloped as a therapeutic target area The central goal of this program is to develop new cancer therapeutics that target genomic instability as a hallmark of cancer cells, bringing new, cancer-cell selective treatments to the clinical oncology market. Two key challenges in current cancer therapy are mini ...

  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. Microbial Surrogate Assay for Environmental PAH Exposure

    SBC: ARPHION, LTD            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Arphion is a company established to develop noninvasive products that will be used to diagnose, prevent, and treat head and neck and other cancers. 41,000 people are diagnosed with head and neck cancer (HNC) every yearin the United States, with 8,000 deaths. Tens of millions of people in the US are at increased risk for HNC due to exposure to the polycyclic ary ...

  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. Cblb-based Drugs Against Sepsis and Inflammation

    SBC: CELL BIOLOGICS INC            Topic: NHLBI

    Abstract Septicemia poses a major health care challenge. Modern therapies requiring suppression of patients' immune systems, a growing numbers of elderly people in the population, and the emergence of drug-resistant bacteria, have increased the prevalenceand severity of the disease over the past few decades. Current treatments rely on drugs that do not significant reduce morbidity and mortali ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Location Initiated Individualized Texts for African American Adolescent Health

    SBC: MEI Research, Ltd            Topic: NIMHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obesity in the U.S. has disproportionately affected African American (AA) adolescents who have almost twice the prevalence of obesity than their Caucasian peers. This is due in part to greater exposure to, and higher consumption of, 'fast' and calorie dense foods among minority vs. majority populations. Finding effective ways to address dietary habits ...
