  1. A Multivalent Lyme Disease Vaccine Targeting Tick-Host-Pathogen Interactions

    SBC: L2 DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant This proposal seeks to develop a novel vaccine against Lyme disease by targeting Ixodes scapularis proteins critical for Borrelia burgdorferi transmission from the tick to mammalian host Earlier work has identified four tick proteins Salp TRE tHRF and TSLPI that facilitate different steps of spirochete transmission and immunity against these protein ...

  2. A novel approach to treat non alcoholic steatohepatitis NASH

    SBC: Mitotherapeutix LLC            Topic: 300

    Abstract The Specific Aim of this Phase I STTR proposal is to test the feasibility of treating non alcohol steatohepatitis NASH by increasing mitochondrial metabolism which is the main pathway for lipid catabolism in the liver NASH is a stage of non alcohol fatty liver disease NAFLD that has progressed to a pathological state NASH can lead to cirrhosis leading to liver failure or hepatocel ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: Printed Performance Innovations            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: Material extrusion 3D printing is an Additive Manufacturing method which utilizes a polymeric monofilanment as a feedstock in the fabrication of 3D objects. The relative simplicity compared to other AM technologies makes it an attractive manufacturing tool, however, characteristics inherent to this 3D printing method (namely air gaps between print rasters) makes it undesirable for the 3D ...

  4. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Engineering a phosphotyrosyl-tRNA Synthetase

    SBC: AXIOMX INC            Topic: 300

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Although tyrosine phosphorylation is an important controlling element in cell signaling no tRNA suppressor for phosphotyrosine pTyr incorporation has yet been made We propose to use directed molecular evolution of several aminoacyl tRNA synthetases aaRSs to identify mutations that enable binding of pTyr to the aaRS Specifically ATP molecules will be att ...

  7. Flexible Ion-Mediated Artificial Retina

    SBC: LAMBDAVISION, INC.            Topic: NEI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A flexible, protein-based, ion-mediated retinal implant is proposed for the restoration of vision for patients with retinal degenerative diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa(RP). The implant under development uses the retinal- containing protein, bacteriorhodopsin (BR), to convert light into a pH gradient. This gradi ...

  8. Functional-selection of affinity reagents against DNA-protein complexes using targeted chromatin sequences

    SBC: AXIOMX INC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Site-specific binding of proteins to DNA plays an important role in cell development, cell signaling, the cell cycle, and diseases such as cancer. There are two overarching goals to this proposal: (1) to develop a meansfor the identification of proteins bound to specific DNA sequences, and (2) to develop a better method for the identification of immunoprecipita ...

  9. Galectin 1: A novel small protein therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy

    SBC: STRYKAGEN CORPORATION            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy DMD is a fatal muscle disease affecting in every male births DMD results from mutations in the gene encoding the dystrophin a kDa scaffolding protein responsible for providing a mechanical link between the muscle fiber actin cytoskeleton and a transmembrane protein complex called the dystrophin associated glycoprotein ...

  10. 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 ...
