  1. Development of a topical fixed-dose combination drug for peripheral neuropathic pain.

    SBC: WinSanTor, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    PROJECT SUMMARY An estimated 30 million people in the United States suffer from some form of peripheral neuropathy, a condition that develops as a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system. The top two major causes of peripheral neuropathy in the US are diabetes mellitus (both T1DM and T2DM) and chemotherapeutic agents. Currently, there are no FDA-approved treatments to prevent or reverse ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Novel, Field-Deployable, Biomimetic Narcotics Detector for the Identification of Fentanyl and Other Synthetic Opioids

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    AbstractThe alarming scope of the rapidly growing opioid epidemic has commanded the nation’s attention. The White House’s Council of Economic Advisers estimates that in 2015, the economic cost of the opioid crisis was over $504.0 billion (2.8% of GDP); and it is only expected to continue rising. Today, 1 in 5 fatalities amongst young adults is opioid related; with half a million fatal overdose ...

  4. Eliminating the human factor from stereotaxic surgeries

    SBC: Popneuron LLC            Topic: 104

    Project Summary: The main goal of this research project is to develop a new line of new stereotaxic devices for small animal research that outperforms existing devices in terms of accuracy, reproducibility, and ease of use. Advancing a tool such as an electrode, injection pipette or optical fiber through a small hole in the cranium, sometimes over long distances, and placing it precisely in a part ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Lead compound discovery from proprietary mycobacterial strains for treatment of PTSD

    SBC: MYCOBACTERIA THERAPEUTICS CORPORATION            Topic: NCCIH

    Project Summary Immunoregulation, i.e., balanced expression of regulatory and effector T cells, is thought to be compromised in modern high-income settings due in part to reduced contact with commensal and environmentally derived bacteria, also known as “old friends”. Failed immunoregulation is thought to be one factor contributing to recent increases in stress-related and chronic inflammatory ...

  8. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
