  1. Phage preparation for managing Salmonella in foods

    SBC: Intralytix Inc            Topic: 85

    Salmonellae continue to be one of the leading worldwide causes of foodborne bacterial diseases. They cause 1.2-1.4 million annual cases of salmonellosis in the USA, with associated costs estimated to be as high as $12.8 billion/year (in 1998 dollars). Despite continued and escalating efforts to curb diseases caused by foodborne bacterial pathogens, salmonellae continue to produce foodborne illness ...

  2. MyASL Quizmaker

    SBC: Institute For Disabilities Research & Training Inc            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: American Sign Language (ASL) is a visual and gestural language that is distinct from English, has its own grammar, syntax, vocabulary, and no text representation. Despite the differences between the languages, students who use ASL are typically assessed with protocols for English-speaking students, as few exist specifically for students who use ASL. Not surprisingly, prior research shows ...

  5. Transgenic Mosquitoes for Improved Malaria Sporozoite Vaccine Manufacture

    SBC: SANARIA INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An ideal tool for eliminating Plasmodium falciparum (Pf), the causative agent of 99% of all malaria deaths, would be a highly effective vaccine that prevents blood stage infection and thereby prevents both disease and transmission. Sanaria's goal is to develop and commercialize a Pf sporozoite (SPZ) vaccine that prevents Pf blood stage infection in gt 90% ...

  7. Development of Small Molecules as Antiprotozoal Agents


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed research focuses on the development of novel therapeutic agents for the prevention and treatment of malaria caused by P. falciparum. A previous Phase I project has discovered novel molecules with potent antimalarial activity against both sensitive and multidrug resistant malaria strains in some in vitro and in vivo models. Lead compounds are low in ...

  8. Device to Improve Treatment of Colorectal CA using O2 Dependent Phosphorescence


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Standard of care for surgical resection of rectal cancer is the performance of low anterior resection (LAR). After removal of the cancerous segment, a surgical stapler is used to restore continuity by creating an anastomosis between the resulting ends of disjointed bowel. Anastomotic leak is one of the most dreaded complications of colorectal surgery due to the ...

    SBC: Robin Medical, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    Molecular medicine holds promise for advancing cancer diagnosis and treatment if biomarkers can be accurately assessed in tumors. The objective of the project is to develop and test a new biopsy system that stabilizes the target tissue and prevents changes in biomarker levels due to ischemia in the excised tissue sample. The specific aims of the project are: 1. Design and build a clinic-ready, ...
