  1. Developing a small peptide to control autoimmune inflammation in type diabetes

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    Abstract Type Diabetes T D affects an ever growing population While this disease typically has been associated with juveniles the disease in adult populations is rapidly increasing The defining clinical component is insulin loss which occurs because of sustained inflammation in the islets At present there is no means to prevent or reverse insulin loss A major inflammatory pathway in T D ...

  3. Screening for the autoimmune component of multiple sclerosis

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    Multiple Sclerosis is an inflammatory neurodegenerative disease with autoimmune components that exacerbate and potentially initiate the disease Diagnosis is invasive time consuming relatively expensive and extremely difficult In fact no clear diagnostic test yet exist A major concern is that MS symptoms are identical to the symptoms of numerous other neurologic diseases OND as well as some ...

  4. Non invasive risk assessment tool for pediatric heart failure


    ABSTRACT Heart Failure HF in pediatric patients is a devastating disease that is difficult to evaluate even with invasive hospital procedures Importantly and unique to the pediatric population approximately of pediatric HF patients spontaneously recover normal heart function within year of diagnosis Unfortunately there is no reliable clinical parameter or biomarker that allows pedia ...

  5. Novel HDAC Inhibitors for Treatment of Hemoglobinopathies


    Project Summary Induction of normal but developmentally silenced fetal globin expression reduces anemia and ameliorates clinical severity in the beta hemoglobinopathies HDACs and are components of the NURD repressor complex which promotes silencing of fetal globin in adult cells Prior generation HDAC inhibitors have increased fetal globin in patients but had limitations for pharmaceu ...

  6. Biocatalytic production of precursors to lutein and zeaxanthin to address age related macular degeneration

    SBC: EscaZyme Biochemicals, LLC            Topic: N

    Project Summary Atrophic dry age related macular degeneration AMD is the leading cause of severe loss of vision for those over age Dietary supplements containing lutein and zeaxanthin are recommended by the NEI for those at risk of late AMD There has been a corresponding growth in demand for these two xanthophylls Lutein and zeaxanthin are currently sourced from marigolds grown mostl ...

  7. Development of a Clinical Screening Platform for Type Diabetes

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIDDK

    Abstract A major shortfall in clinical care for diabetes is a rapid and accurate screen for progression to disease Current criteria involve HLA haplotype and the presence of auto antibodies AA Genome wide associated studies GWAS revealed only immune associated genes including HLA as T D predictors The ability to differentiate from other diseases was very limited Pre type diabetes p T ...

  8. Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) for characterizing invertebrate vision

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    In partnership with the Strausfeld Lab at the University of Arizona, BNS proposes to develop an Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) based on our previous VIS/NIR Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) design. Using BNS-developed liquid crystal (LC) spatial light modulators (SLMs), this display will provide high-speed multispectral wide-field visual stimulus to invertebrates ov ...

  10. Shear Stabilization Based Framework for the Failure Testing and Analysis of HSCs

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: AF17AT019

    This program will develop an engineering framework for the design and failure analysis of high strain composite (HSC) laminates. The program will first test several HSC laminates to generate a statistically significant dataset for flexural strength. Testing will be performed for short and long term stowage conditions. Initial and ultimate failure modes will be identified and documented using sever ...
