  1. Raising the Therapeutic Index of Photodynamic Therapy with Targeted Nanosyringes

    SBC: NANOHYBRIDS INC            Topic: 102

    ABSTRACT Current clinical photodynamic therapy PDT is an effective cancer treatment that is non invasive and low cost but it has yet to become a mainstream frontline treatment The clinical efficacy of PDT in solid tumors depends on significant accumulation of the photosensitizer PS at the tumor site availability of oxygen near the photosensitizer and effective dosing of the drug light c ...

  2. Mitochondrial Targeted Nano antioxidants to Treat Alzheimer s Disease

    SBC: Acelerox, LLC            Topic: NIA

    ABSTRACT PROJECT SUMMARY Alzheimer s disease AD is characterized by hyperphosphorylated tau protein which causes impaired axonal transport in neurons In recent years multiple researchers have determined that oxidative stress appears to be a significant early event in the pathogenesis of AD in preclinical AD models and in AD patients We have shown that reducing oxidative stress through quench ...

  3. Investigation of antibody drug conjugates of a novel target

    SBC: Wntrix Inc.            Topic: NCI

    PROJECT SUMMARY Antibody drug conjugates ADCs are monoclonal antibodies mAbs that are covalently linked to cell killing drugs and have emerged as a major modality in anti cancer treatment This approach combines high specificity of mAbs against their antigen targets with highly potent cytotoxic drugs resulting in armed mAbs that deliver the payload drug to tumor cells with enriched levels ...

  4. Aminooxyacetic Acid Prodrugs for Colon Cancer Therapy

    SBC: CBS THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: 102

    ABSTRACT Recent studies of the applicants support the role of the endogenous gaseous biological mediator hydrogen sulfide H S in colorectal cancer In specific the selective upregulation of cystathionine synthase CBS and the subsequent production of H S in colonic cancer cells serves as a pro survival factor by stimulating tumor cell bioenergetics ...

  5. Targeting Synaptotagmin to Prevent Airway Mucus Obstruction

    SBC: Exotect, LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY Mucus dysfunction underlies the pathophysiology of a number of common respiratory diseases including asthma cystic fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD Asthma alone impacts of the US population resulting in considerable cost morbidity and occasional mortality caused by mucus hypersecretion Recently it was discovered that Synaptotagmin Syt regul ...

  6. Developing an automated yeast dissection system for aging research

    SBC: Innovative BioChips LLC            Topic: NIA

    Project Summary Developing an Automated Yeast Dissection System for Aging Research Aging is the single greatest risk factor for diseases that are principal causes of mortality The objectives of aging research are to discover key genes and pathways related to aging that may eventually contribute to retardation of aging and a delay in the onset of age associated diseases The budding yeast Sacchar ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Flexible Broad-band Optical Device

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF17AT010

    Optical characterization of materials has remained an active area of research for many decades. With each advancement in light sources, detector technologies, microscopy, or compact spectroscopic analysis, a renewed effort is made to apply these technologies to material characterization, especially for biological tissues. There is a current need to characterize the details of the interaction of ...

  9. Thermal Monitoring of Quantum Cascade Lasers Using Scanning Near-Field Infrared Radiometry With Sub-Wavelength Resolution

    SBC: Max-IR Labs, LLC            Topic: AF17AT026

    Max-IR Labs, LLC., proposes a Phase I STTR program in conjunction with the University of Texas at Dallas to demonstrate the feasibility of the design, development, and production of scanning near-field infrared temperature sensor for thermal mapping of small heat sources. The specific application of the proposed instrument is targeted towards the optimization of the design of Quantum Cascade Laser ...

  10. 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 ...
