  1. 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 ...

  2. Targets of Acquired Tick-Resistance As Anti-Tick Vaccines

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    ABSTRACTThis proposal seeks to develop a novel vaccine against pathogens transmitted by the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis, by targeting tick salivary proteins (Salps) critical for tick feeding. I. scapularis Salps provide functions critical for evading host defense responses detrimental to the tick. Further, these salivary functions are also co-opted by tick-transmitted pathogens to ensure t ...

  4. Novel Nanosecond Laser and Ultrasound to Selectively Treat Eye Blood Vessels

    SBC: Photosonox LLC            Topic: NEI

    ABSTRACT / PROJECT SUMMARY Wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the developed world. Anti-VEGF therapy is currently the gold standard for wet AMD treatment. However, up to 50% of patients in the long term have a suboptimal response to anti-VEGF therapy. A better alternative method for treatment of AMD is urgently needed. We have recently inve ...

  6. Immunization with mosquito AgTRIO protein to prevent malaria

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYMalaria is one of the world’s major public health threats. The disease is transmitted when an infected female Anopheles mosquito, while probing for a blood meal, injects saliva together with Plasmodium sporozoites into the skin of the vertebrate host (1, 2). To date, a highly effective, safe and FDA-approved human vaccine against malaria has not been developed. The most establishe ...

  7. A Novel Combination Therapy to Treat Biofilm-based Pneumonia Infections

    SBC: TSRL, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    Abstract Bronchiectasis is a lung pathology characterized by a permanent dilation of the bronchi and is associated with a chronic cough, sputum production and recurrent respiratory infections. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the best understood inherited conditions that leads to progressive bronchiectasis, chronic bacterial infection and premature mortality. Both non-CF bronchiectasis (NCFB) and CF ...

  8. A novel vaccine against mosquito-borne Zika virus based on mosquito salivary gland protein AgBR1

    SBC: L2 Diagnostics, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYZika virus, an emerging flavivirus, is associated with severe clinical outcomes, including Guillain-Barré syndrome and birth defects. Transmission of Zika virus is primarily mosquito- borne. Mosquito salivary proteins are known to enhance infectivity and pathogenesis in Zika, dengue and West Nile viruses by modulating immune responses. This proposal seeks to develop a novel vaccine ...
