  1. Novel Small Molecule Therapeutics for Pancreatic Cancer

    SBC: ChemRegen Inc            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary/Abstract Developing new ways to treat pancreatic cancer is a significant challenge. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and results in an estimated 37,000 deaths/year. Pancreatic cancer therapeutic options are limited to surgery and/or combinations of chemotherapy and radiation. Unfortunately, late-stage diagnosis of pancreat ...

  2. ChemoFilter: A Novel Catheter Device to Enable High-Dose Chemotherapy Treatment

    SBC: CHEMOFILTER, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary: Intravenous dosing of drugs for applications ranging from cancer chemotherapy to anti-microbials to lytic (blood clot dissolving) agents is limited by systemic toxicity. Currently, the only ways to remove drugs from the blood are throughnatural metabolism or costly impractical measures such as dialysis. Despite intense focus on targeted drug delivery agents, these therapies are c ...

  3. Developing Novel Therapies for Treating Breast-Cancer-Related Lymphedema

    SBC: ADEPTHERA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Destruction of lymphatic vessels during the treatment of breast cancer by surgery and/or radiation therapy can lead to the development of secondary lymphedema. The breast-cancer-related lymphedema is associated with debilitating limb swelling, chronic inflammation, tissue fibrosis, and increased susceptibility to infection. It has been estimated that approximat ...

  4. Intra-procedure Deformable Ultrasound-MRI Fusion for Prostate Biopsies

    SBC: ZMK Medical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    This proposal is a collaborative effort between Yale University and the medical device company Eigen to develop a more robust and accurate method for the deformable fusion of pre-operative magnetic resonance images (MRI) and intra-procedure trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) images to guide prostate biopsy. Prostate cancer is a major cause of death in the U.S. and biopsy is the gold-standard for its d ...

  5. Validation of a Novel Treatment for Glioblastoma

    SBC: CURTANA PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this application is to study in vivo efficacy of CT102, a newly discovered inhibitor of the OLIG2 transcription factor in animal models of glioblastoma (GBM), a highly underserved area of pharmacotherapy. In this proposal, the experienced drug discovery group at Curtana Pharmaceuticals Inc. will conduct a pre-clinical evaluation of selectivity ...

  6. Targeting of Myc-Max dimerization for the treatment of cancer

    SBC: SORRENTO THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Myc is a key transcriptional regulator due to its critical role in many fundamental cellular processes, such as cell cycle progression and cell growth. Therefore, dysregulation of Myc expression can lead to disease, including cancer. Myc is overexpressed in many human tumors, and it is estimated that 1 in 7 cancer deaths in the United States are resultant of hi ...

  7. Identification and Quantification of Sequence Specific RNA Modifications via the Alpha-Hemolysin Latch Zone

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): During this STTR program, Electronic BioSciences (EBS) proposes to develop a nanopore based system around our University of Utah collaborators newly developed technology that will be capable of identifying and quantifying sequence specific RNA modifications. A system capable of quantitative, low cost, high throughput, RNA modification characterization has the c ...

  8. Cathepsin Inhibitors for Treatment of Breast Cancer Induced Bone Pain

    SBC: VIROBAY, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The World Health Organization estimates that the number of women living with breast cancer globally will rise to 15 million by the year 2020 with a significant portion of these patients in advanced stages of the disease. Breast cancer is the most frequent malignant tumor in women in the U.S. with nearly 200,000 women diagnosed each year. The U.S. NIH estimate o ...

  9. Lateral Flow Immunoassays For Pharmacokinetic Dosing Of Monoclonal Antibodies

    SBC: ABREOS BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Monoclonal antibodies (mAb) are used to treat a variety of cancers and other diseases. Dosing is typically based on body surface area, but population pharmacokinetic (PK) data suggests considerable variation across patients. Furthermore, there is growing evidence that patients with low final trough levels of circulating antibody have a poorer outcome, suggestin ...

  10. Manufacture of Self-Reporting, Drug Loaded Porous Silicon Nanomaterials for Treat

    SBC: SPINNAKER BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NEI

    PROJECT SUMMARY/ABSTRACT Visual impairment is a global epidemic affecting millions of individuals currently. A large portion of these individuals suffer from chronic age-related macular degeneration (AMD), characterized by progressive neovascularization and vascular leakage near the central region (macula) of the retina. Current treatments for AMD, including laser photocoagulation, photodynamic th ...
