  2. Self Assembling High Affinity Peptides for Point of Care Drug-Device Combinations

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Infection surrounding metal implants is a common and sometimes devastating cause of implant failure in a number of fields including oral, craniomaxillofacial (CMF), orthopedic, and cardiovascular surgery. These infections, which arise from the establishment of biofilms on device surfaces, not only necessitate new surgeries but in themselves present a significan ...

  3. Commercialization of Human Mesothelial Cells for Research

    SBC: Zen-Bio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mesothelial cells have been found to be pivotal in tumor metastasis, peritoneal dialysis, and inflammatory response. These cells are specialized epithelial cells that line the peritoneal, pericardial, and pleural cavities and internal organs presenting a barrier to invading organisms and physical damage. Ovarian tumor attachments occur through cancer cells bind ...

  4. Novel Formulations for Injectable Growth Factors

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 6.3 million fractures occur each year in the United States alone (Praemer et al. 1999) and approximately 15% of fractures exhibit delayed or impaired healing. The clinical applications currently used to treat delayed fracture require open surgery to insert an autologous bone graft. If open surgery is confounded by co-morbidity or is deemed otherwise undes ...

  5. Antibiotic-binding peptides for biofilm prevention on ventriculoperitoneal shunts

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunts are used to treat pediatric and neonatal hydrocephalus in severe cases, representing approximately 1/3rd of affected infants. Due to the high susceptibility for infection and mechanical breakdown, the failure rate of VP shunts is around 30-40%. A need therefore exists to improve infection prevention for this procedure, likely by ...

  6. Growth Factor Coated Sutures for Improved Tendon Repair

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Of the nearly 5 million patients who visit a physician for tendon pain each year in the US, approximately 200,000 go on to have a surgical repair. And while surgical repair has a high-rate of symptom relief, recovering patients are routinely immobilized for several months. Increased tendon strength, during shorter time courses has been reported in animal models ...

  7. Electrochemical RT Activity Assay for Measuring HIV Load

    SBC: ALDERON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): To address the urgent need for better treatment and diagnostic testing of HIV infected people in resource-limited settings, we propose in this Phase II SBIR to further develop an electrochemical testing system (eSystem) developed by Alderon Biosciences, Inc. for determinations of HIV viral load in clinical samples. Alderon's long-term goal is to produce, valida ...

  8. Development of a Novel Method for Inhibiting Atherosclerosis in Diabetes

    SBC: VASCULAR PHARMACEUTICALS            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term objective of the proposed studies is to develop a monoclonal antibody that can be administered safely to patients with diabetes that will inhibit atherosclerosis. Insulin-like growth factor-I has been implicated in the initiation of the proliferative phase of atherosclerotic lesion development but inhibiting IGF-I receptor activity may lead to tox ...

  9. Novel Restorative Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury

    SBC: COGNOSCI INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Novel Restorative Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating traumatic CNS disorder that significantly disables about 253,000 Americans where two-thirds of the new victims are under the age of 30. Functional deficits following SCI result from damage to axons or severance cutting of axons, loss of neurons and glia, and demyelination ...

  10. Fast Spectral Imaging Device For Tumor Margin Mapping

    SBC: Zenalux Biomedical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The American Cancer Society estimates that a total of 240,430 new breast cancers were diagnosed in 2007 (178,400 new cases of invasive breast cancer, and 62,030 new cases of in situ breast cancer). Approximately 180,000 of these patients undergo breast conserving surgery (BCS), also called lumpectomy. Multiple recent studies show that a staggering 20-70% of the ...
