  1. 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 ...

  2. Salmonella typhimurium-based Bacteriotherapy for Orphan Benign Tumors: Neurofibromatosis Type II (NF2)

    SBC: Mulberry Biotherapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is a rare genetic disorder that affects about 1 in 25,000 individuals globally. While usually benign, these tumors result in severe morbidity and mortality in affected individuals. Almost all NF2 patients lose their hearing, and many lose the ability to walk and even to see. NF2 patients’ average age at death is 36 years, many of whom die in adolescence or early ad ...

  3. Vaccination against Zika virus infection using mosquito NeSt1 protein

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    Arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) present a substantial threat to human and animal health worldwide. They are transmitted by hematophagous arthropods, in which mosquitoes are one of the main transmitters. The mosquito specie, Aedes aegypti, is the primary mosquito vector of several widely spread arboviruses as zika, dengue or West Nile viruses. Mosquitoes transmit these pathogens by inoculatin ...

  4. Multiplexed Bioassay for Checkpoint Inhibitor Autoimmunity

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    The advent of checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) therapy in human cancer has dramatically changed the landscape of treatment strategies in recent years. Previously, cancers with largely ineffective therapeutics and a poor prognosis, such as melanoma, have experienced significant advances of patients able to extend survival and/or progression free disease. Within the tumor microenvironment, a number of imm ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Extracellular NAMPT is a Novel Therapeutic Target in Chorioamnionitis-Related Prematurity (ChorP)

    SBC: AQUALUNG THERAPEUTICS CORP.            Topic: NICHD

    ABSTRACT: Intrauterine infection and chorioamnionitis are common complications of pregnancy associated with significant maternal, perinatal, and long-term adverse outcomes. Adverse maternal outcomes include postpartum infections and sepsis while adverse infant outcomes include stillbirth, premature birth, neonatal sepsis, chronic lung disease and brain injury leading to cerebral palsy and other ne ...

  8. Therapeutic targeting of Nox2 and Nox4 in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    SBC: Fibronox            Topic: NHLBI

    ABSTRACT: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) caused by a genetic mutation that prevents the production of dystrophin, a protein that muscles need to work properly. DMD patients exhibit progressive muscle weakness occurs in both skeletal and cardiac muscle. Cardiac fibrosis is ultimately the leading cause of their premature death. There is no cure for DMD, thus it remains an unmet medical need. Any ...

  9. Development of Melanocortin-3 Receptor Peptide Antagonists for the Treatment of Obesity and Maintenance of Weight Loss

    SBC: Courage Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: 300

    Rates of obesity have steadily increased in the United States, with approximately 50 percent of Americans projected to be classified as obese by 2030. Interestingly, obesity even seems to be a risk factor for the severity of illness in response to COVID-19 disease. Although behavioral (dieting and exercise), pharmacological, and surgical approaches exist for weight loss, many individuals who lose ...

  10. A novel device for cervical insufficiency in pregnant women

    SBC: Cx Therapeutics, Inc            Topic: NICHD

    Abstract In normal pregnancy, the cervix remains closed until term and then dilates under the influence of uterine contractions. In cases of cervical insufficiency (CI), the cervix dilates in the second trimester in the absence of uterine contractions, which leads to a preterm birth. Infants born prematurely are at risk of lifelong morbidities including chronic lung disease, feeding difficulties, ...
