  1. Integrated molecular diagnostic system for the point-of-care

    SBC: BIOHELIX CORPORATION            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This STTR-AT-NIAID seeks to develop an integrated nucleic acid system based on research done by Catherine Klapperich's laboratory at Boston University. The BU lab-on-a-chip includes a micro solid phase extraction (lt SPE) column, flap valves and hydrophobic vents to gate fluid movements through micro channels, and multiple reaction chambers for experimenta ...

  2. Isolation of functional IgGs in the cytoplasm of a novel E. coli expression host

    SBC: NEW ENGLAND BIOLABS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) hold great promise in human health with applications ranging from therapeutic agents that target cancer cells, to diagnostic biomarkers that can detect trace levels of a given antigen. Thispromise is best reflected in global sales of antibodies which reached nearly 31 billion in 2007 and future sales predicted to reach 56 billion ...

  3. Use of milatuzumab in modulating graft vs. host disease

    SBC: IMMUNOMEDICS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Control of GVHD by milatuzumab in hu-SCID mice Dendritic cells (DCs) are the primary initiator of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), a major and life- threatening complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT). Depletion of DCs has been demonstrated to be an effective approach for control of GVHD. We recently found that milatuzumab ...

  4. A NOVEL BIS-INDOLE COMPOUND AGAINST CATHETER COLONIZATION

    SBC: MICROBIOTIX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Infections associated with medical devices can be serious and even fatal. Catheter colonization and production of a biofilm on the surface of a catheter shortly after implantation are normally the prelude for infections. A number of antimicrobial-treated catheters have been developed to combat these infections, however, many of them have limited clinical effica ...

  5. Developing small molecule therapeutics for lupus

    SBC: Biomedical Research Models, Inc.            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) affects ~ 2 million Americans with devastating impact on multiple organs, especially the skin, joints, kidney, and brain. Therapeutic strategies for lupus are largely palliative orimmunosuppressive with serious toxicities. No new drugs for SLE have been approved in decades. Thus, novel therapeutic approaches to lupus - par ...

  6. A FAP-Activated Proteasome Inhibitor for Killing Solid Tumors

    SBC: ARISAPH PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cancer is America's second leading cause of death. Many approved cancer drugs, such as bortezomib (Velcade), are cytotoxic agents that kill normal cells as well as tumor cells. Therapeutic benefit depends on tumor cellsbeing more sensitive than normal cells, thereby allowing clinical responses to be achieved at relatively safe drug doses; however, damage t ...

  7. High-throughput portable software for fragment-based drug design

    SBC: ACPHARIS            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fragment-based drug design (FBDD) is a combinatorial approach in which individual fragments binding to regions of the target site are selected from a fragment library, and then combined to form potential lead compounds.Interest in this approach has significantly increased during the last few years, with many companies using FBDD methods based on X-ray crystallo ...

  8. Noninvasive neonatal glucose monitor

    SBC: FLUOROMETRIX CORPORATION            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Abnormally low (hypoglycemia) and abnormally high (hypoglycemia) glucose in neonates can lead to devastating consequences. Thus, constant, accurate and safe glucose monitoring is imperative in neonatal care. However, point-of-care (POC) devices for glucose testing currently used for neonates are originally designed for adults. Thus, they do not address issues s ...

  9. Magnetic Drive Mechanism for VF Doppler Smart Sensor

    SBC: ARBOR ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prior to dialysis vascular access failure (thrombosis), blood flow decreases from a baseline value to zero over some unknown time period. While the natural history and variation of flow prior to access failure is poorlyunderstood, it is known that customary monthly access flow monitoring is not frequent enough in many clinical settings for adequate prediction a ...

  10. in vivo Studies of Clinical Stage Globin Modulators

    SBC: Phoenicia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Inherited disorders which decrease production or alter structure of the 2-chain of hemoglobin A (2-thalassemias or sickle cell disease) are among the most common monogenic diseases in the world, afflicting millions worldwide, and are designated by WHO as a global health burden. Fetal hemoglobin (HbF: 12, 32) is another type of hemoglobin which is present in all ...
