  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. 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 ...

  3. Personalized anesthetic brain monitoring:Developing novel systems, sensors, and algorithms for aging, dementia, and Alzheimers disease patients

    SBC: PASCALL Systems, Incorporated            Topic: R

    PROJECT SUMMARY In the United States, nearly 100,000 patients receive general anesthesia and sedation daily to safely undergo surgical and non-surgical procedures. A high proportion of these patients are older than 65 years of age. These older patients are at higher risk of post-operative delirium and cognitive dysfunction. Many of these older patients have dementia, including mild cognitive impai ...

  4. Pharmacological chaperones for the treatment of Open-Angle Glaucoma

    SBC: Viewpoint Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NEI

    Open-angle glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide, affecting nearly 70 million individuals. Nonsynonymous mutations in the myocilin gene lead to the most common hereditary form of open-angle glaucoma and account for 3-4% of all cases. Disease-causing mutations, localized to its olfactomedin domain (mOLF), destabilize the myocilin protein, leading to its misfolding and accumula ...

  5. Reversal of Tau Pathology with MSUT2 siRNA Conjugates

    SBC: DTx Pharma, Inc.            Topic: NIA

    Project Summary Genetic and pathologic evidence in andapos;pureandapos; tauopathies such as Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Corticobasilar Degeneration (CBD) and some cases of Fronto-temporal Dementia (FTD) directly implicate tau as causing neuronal cell death, while in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) tau accumulation correlates with development and progression of cognitive impairment. Because of ...

  6. A platform for engineering peptide ligase for building next generation peptide therapeutics.

    SBC: Scribe Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 400

    PROJECT SUMMARY There is an increased interest in peptide medicines in pharmaceutical research and development (Randamp;D) because peptides are recognized as highly selective and efficacious, and at the same time relatively safe and well tolerated. Chemo-enzymatic peptide synthesis (CEPS) using peptide ligases features excellent purity and yield, thus becoming an attractive method to replace tradi ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A Genes-to-Molecules Platform for Expanding Natural Product Diversity

    SBC: Lassogen, Inc.            Topic: NCCIH

    Project Summary Natural products (NPs) and derivatives thereof provide a rich source of chemical matter for drug discovery and development. Over the past 30 years, NP-derived drugs have accounted for more than 35% of FDA approvals. Despite their demonstrated importance, development of new NPs has slowed over the past 15 years due to the lack of efficient methods for discovery, production, and opti ...

  9. Engineering a unique antibody for patients with RA

    SBC: Abwiz Bio, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    RA is one of the most common chronic autoimmune disorders that can lead to complete joint destruction and severe disability if untreated. There is no cure for RA and up to 50% of RA patients do not respond to anti-TNF therapies as circulating Th-17/IL-17 levels are highly elevated subsequent to TNF blockade. For this subset of RA patients, disruption of a novel pathway that impairs the synergy bet ...

  10. HBI-002 to Prevent Anthracycline-Related Cardiotoxicity

    SBC: Hillhurst Biopharmaceuticals, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY There is an urgent need for the development of approaches to prevent cardiotoxicity in cancer patients being treated with anthracyclines, an important class of drugs in the treatment of cancer (e.g. doxorubicin). Anthracycline treatment-related cardiotoxicity is a major clinical problem that severely impacts patient care and also limits dose and usage. More than a quarter of patien ...
