  1. New Assays for Expression Profiling of MicroRNAs

    SBC: Nawgen, LLC            Topic: 172

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant MicroRNAs miRNAs are involved in many diverse biological processes and a single miRNA can modulate the expression of hundreds of gene targets Changes in miRNA expression could have profound biological impacts leading to a variety of human diseases To date most miRNA expression profiling studies have relied on microarrays or high throughput RNA sequencing ...

  2. Rational design of small interfering RNA for genome-wide target knockdown

    SBC: Nawgen, LLC            Topic: 172

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant RNA interference RNAi is a small RNA guided gene silencing process within living cells The RNAi technique is widely used in both biological research and clinical applications because it has the ability to knockdown essentially any gene of interest However one major unresolved issue in RNAi studies is non specific gene silencing It is well known that in ...

  3. Optimization of an integrin enhancing molecule for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy

    SBC: STRYKAGEN CORPORATION            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Duchenne muscular dystrophy is caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene resulting in the loss of the dystrophin glycoprotein complex in skeletal muscle Loss of dystrophin results in reduced sarcolemmal integrity progressive muscle damage and compromised muscle function There is currently no cure and limited treatment options for DMD and all affected child ...

  4. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  5. Tiptuximab Immunotherapeutic for Cancer

    SBC: Medical Guidance Systems LLC            Topic: NCI

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Poor prognosis cancers such as lung cancer, glioblastoma, pancreatic cancer and others have 3 year survival rates that range from 1%-15%. Recent advancements in the development of therapeutic antibodies haveshown promise in other cancers such as breast, head and neck, and colon cancer. The limitations in antibody development are the paucity of cancer ...

  7. Identification of Borrelia burgdorferi diagnostic biomarkers in humans and nonhum

    SBC: DxDiscovery Incorporated            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant The number of Lyme disease cases in the US has been recently estimated by the CDC at cases year This is major public health concern Currently available diagnostics rely on detection of the antibody response serology to Borrelia burgdorferi the causative agent of Lyme disease However serological tests are not accurate during the early stages of Ly ...
