  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...
