  1. Intrapartum Transabdominal Fetal Pulse Oximetry: Demonstration in Ewe Models

    SBC: Storx Technologies, Inc.            Topic: NICHD

    Project Summary Despite significant cost and clear evidence of health risks associated with Cesarean section surgeries, an unnecessarily large number of infants are delivered via Cesarean section (C- Section) surgeries. The high rate of C-section in the US, relative to globally accepted norms, and the associated additional cost and complications are in part, due to high false positive rate of intr ...

  2. Photo-mediated ultrasound therapy for treatment of cutaneous vascular malformations

    SBC: Photosonox LLC            Topic: NIBIB

    ABSTRACT: Cutaneous vascular malformations (CVM), such as port wine stain (PWS) which occurs in 0.3–0.5% of newborns, are often a cause of great concern to patients for both medical and cosmetic reasons. Laser irradiation with flashlamp-pumped pulsed dye lasers, i.e. photothermolysis therapy (PTT), is currently the gold standard treatment for PWS. Most patients with PWS, however, fail to clear c ...

  3. Efficacy of a novel small-molecule splicing modulator in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

    SBC: Wildflower Biopharma Inc            Topic: 102

    Project Summary/Abstract Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most prevalent adult leukemia in Western countries. Despite recent treatment advances, CLL remains incurable. In the era of emerging targeted therapies, disease progression and relapse increasingly are key challenges faced by CLL patients. Therefore, there is an ongoing need for the identification of targetable vulnerabilities in t ...

  4. Development of a Caregiver Application and AI-Enabled Intelligent Assistant to Support Families and Formal Care Providers in Caring for Persons with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias

    SBC: Whiplash Technology, Inc.            Topic: NIA

    PROJECT ABSTRACT Family caregivers face daunting challenges in caring for persons with Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, there is no widely available mechanism to provide real-time, context sensitive support to informal AD caregivers that can address the specific care needs of each AD patient. To address this critical gap, we developed CareVirtue, an innovative web/mobile application for family ca ...

  5. Cerenkov Multi-Spectral Imaging (CMSI) for Adaptation and Real-Time Imaging in Radiotherapy

    SBC: Endectra LLC            Topic: 102

    PROJECT SUMMARY Understanding of tumor molecular characteristics during a course of radiotherapy (RT) treatment is crucial to assess the efficacy of the treatment and adapt radiation dosage to optimize outcomes. Unfortunately, this cannot be routinely achieved by current diagnostic nuclear imaging modalities due to complex logistics and prohibitive costs. Alternatively, Cerenkov Emission (CE) is a ...

  6. Therapeutic inhibition of Fas-mediated retinal cell death and inflammation in dry AMD

    SBC: ONL Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NEI

    PROJECT SUMMARY / ABSTRACT Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading, and due to the aging baby boomers, a growing cause of irreversible vision loss in the United States, and is strongly associated with exposure to cigarette smoke (CS) and high fat diets (HFD). While effective treatment is available for neovascular AMD, the AREDS II antioxidant vitamins are the only proven treatment fo ...

  7. Development of an irreversible covalent inhibitor of FMS-like tyrosine kinase receptor 3 for treating acute myeloid leukemia

    SBC: BRIDGENE BIOSCIENCES INC            Topic: 102

    PROJECT SUMMARY Acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a malignant disease of hematopoietic precursor cells in the bone marrow, is one of the most common cancers in adults accounting for 1% of all cancers. AML is typically diagnosed later in life with individuals 60 and older having a long-term survival rate of merely 5-15%. Cytogenic analysis of the abnormal cells at the time of diagnosis has proven to be ...

  8. Clinical feasibility of a non-invasive, low-cost wearable for measuring air trapping in COPD

    SBC: Respira Labs, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    ABSTRACTChronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of hospitalization in the US. Exacerbations - a worsening or “flare up” of symptoms - cause most COPD hospitalizations. Since most exacerbations can be treated with changes of inhalers and/or oral medications, at-home detection of lung function deterioration may facilitate earlier intervention and help delay or pre ...

  9. Preventing liver fibrosis in alcoholic hepatitis by enhancing liver regenerative capacity via transient telomere extension using lipid nanoparticle-encapsulated TERT mRNA

    SBC: REJUVENATION TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 400

    Abstract Rejuvenation Technologies Inc. (RTI) aims to prevent liver fibrosis in alcoholic hepatitis (AH) by enhancing liver regenerative capacity. AH is an acute form of alcoholic liver disease with mortality of up to 50% within 1 month of presentation. Most AH patients exhibit advanced fibrosis/cirrhosis, which contributes to acute-on-chronic liver failure. RTI will ameliorate/prevent this fibros ...

  10. A novel role for Reelin therapeutics in inflammatory bowel disease

    SBC: REELIN THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: 300

    Abstract Factors that contribute to the onset of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) remain incompletely understood. Although specific genetic factors may increase risk, most IBD cannot be readily explained based on genetics. Dysbiosis in intestinal microbiomes also has been implicated. Once IBD is established, chronic inflammation is a central hallmark and also a major target for therapy. Both forms ...
