  1. CSF Tau Biomarker-guided Development of Hsp90 Inhibitors for Alzheimer's Disease


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Research and Related Other Project Information Item 7. Project Summary/Abstract Neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease (AD) may result from deposition of A as plaques in brain tissue. However, less effort has been made to elucidate the role of tau- containing neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) in AD. Accumulating evidence suggests that tau containing NFTs i ...

  2. Devices enabling improved light delivery for photodynamic therapy of oral cancer

    SBC: LUCIFICS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Oral cancer is a devastating disease that impacts 640,000 people worldwide. Though treatment with photodynamic therapy can be effective with significantly less morbidity than alternative therapies, problems arising fromless than optimal light delivery to the oral cavity have hindered its widespread application. The goal of the proposed research is to provide a ...

  3. A Small Molecule to Activate Cetuximab to Kill K-RAS Mutant Colorectal Tumors


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the United States colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third leading cause of cancer mortality. Surgery is the primary treatment for early stage CRC; but adjuvant therapy is usually needed in advanced disease. Approximately 55% of CRC patients have metastatic disease for which the prognosis is poor despite incremental improvements due to introduction of irinotecan ...

  4. Evaluation of In Vitro Companion Diagnostic Monoclonal Antibodies for Use in a St

    SBC: INTICA BIOMEDICAL, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project is designed to allow independent experts in the development and/or application of in vitro breast cancer diagnostic tests, Drs. Badve (breast pathologist) and Sledge (breast oncologist), to evaluate INTICA's candidate anti-DEspR mAbs to develop the preliminary materials and methods for a commercially viable companion diagnostic test. DEspR, th ...

  5. AAV Mediated Gene Transfer to the CNS for MPS I


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I) is an autosomal recessive storage disease caused by the absence of a-L-iduronidase (IDUA), resulting in systemic accumulation of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) storage materials, hepatosplenomegaly, skeletal dysplasias, cardiopulmonary obstruction, progressive neurologic impairment and death by age 15. MPS I is currently treated b ...

  6. Measurement of Beta Cell Death in Diabetes

    SBC: L2 DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): All forms of diabetes are characterized by the death of insulin producing cells. In Type 1 diabetes (T1D), this leads to the reliance on exogenous insulin for survival. In addition, there is cell loss in T2D and inindividuals who lose islet or pancreas allografts. New therapies have been developed that can modulate the course of T1D but the effective appli ...

  7. Phase 1 Safety and Pharmacokinetics of ALK001 in people over 60


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this collaborative research between Alkeus Pharmaceuticals and Columbia University Medical Center is to evaluate a new oral investigational treatment for dry age-related macular degeneration (dry-AMD), the leading cause of blindness in the U.S., and Stargardt's disease, also known as juvenile macular degeneration. The investigational co ...

  8. GPU Accelerated Protein Docking Software with Flexible Refinement

    SBC: ACPHARIS            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Protein-protein interactions are involved at multiple points in virtually all biological pathways. Understanding such interactions is also important for the design of biologics that can target extracellular receptors with high affinity and specificity. Since determining the structure of protein complexes by X-ray crystallography is expensive and slow, it is im ...

  9. Non-invasive neonatal respiration monitor


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Preterm birth requires technologies for supporting immature organ systems on one hand while minimizing technology-induced injury on the other that may contribute to long-term adverse outcomes. Specific problems of thiskind are extremes in arterial partial pressure of oxygen and carbon dioxide. A variety of pathological conditions are known to result from both ...

  10. Next Generation Therapeutics for Hemoglobinopathies

    SBC: Phoenicia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sickle cell disease and 2-thalassemias are mankind's most common hereditary monogenic diseases, comprise a major global health burden, and cost the US healthcare system gt 1 billion annually. Patients have chronic disabling morbidity and early mortality. Fetal hemoglobin (HbF: a2,g2) is another endogenous type of hemoglobin normally present in all humans, ...
