  1. Humanized Monoclonal Antibodies to Treat Acinetobacter Infections


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the last decade, Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as one of the most highly antibiotic-resistant pathogens in the United States (US) and throughout the world. These infections are increasingly prevalent and highlylethal, killing 50-60% of those infected. Worse, strains of A. baumannii that no known antibiotic will kill have now emerged, and will continue ...

  2. Immunotherapeutics to prevent HCV reinfection

    SBC: Integrated Biotherapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Up to 170 million people worldwide are chronically infected with HCV Hepatitis C virus (HCV) putting the infected individuals at significant risk for cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer. End- stage liver diseasecaused by HCV is the leading indication of liver transplantation (LT) in the United States. However, reinfection with HCV occurs universally and ...

  3. Preparation and Characterization of 2nd Generation HIV-1 Maturation Inhibitor Dru

    SBC: DFH Pharma, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite advances in the development of HIV drugs there remains a need for new therapies. Toxicities associated with long term use of many of the approved HIV drugs coupled with the development of resistance drives the need for new and novel antivirals. Maturation inhibitors (MIs) represent one such class of HIV therapies. HIV maturation inhibitors block virus r ...

  4. Tumor-toxic CD47 mAb therapy for leukemia: a proof of concept study

    SBC: VASCULOX, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): CD47 has emerged as a novel therapeutic target in hematologic cancers. Leukemias expressing the highest levels of CD47 have the worst prognosis. Increased CD47 expression is thought to protect cancer cells from phagocytic clearance by sending a don't eat me signal to macrophages via SIRPa, an inhibitory receptor that prevents phagocytosis of CD47-bearing ...

  5. Mobile App Targeting Meth Use, HIV Sex Risks and ART Adherence for Gay/Bisexual Men

    SBC: COG ANALYTICS, LLC            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Methamphetamine use among gay and bisexually identified men (GBM) and other men who have sex with men (MSM) is strongly associated with HIV infection due to the concomitant high-risk sexual behaviors that often occur while using the drug. As a result, HIV prevalence is significantly higher among MSM that report frequent use of methamphetamine and highest among ...

  6. Communication in Infants and Social Screener: The CISS


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Effective early intervention depends on reliable screening of risk for communication impairments as soon as possible. Established infant communication risk factors include poor attention, gestures, social connectedness,exploratory play, and speech. Although these risk factors can be detected by 12-18 mos. and reliably predict later language and social disorders ...

  7. Non-invasive method to evaluate the quality of human oocytes and embryos

    SBC: Renova Life Inc.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary We propose to develop a non-invasive method to predict mammalian oocyte quality by analyzing the surrounding cumulus cells' gene expression patterns (cGEP). The result of the cGEP assay---a cGEP score---can be used to predict embryo quality and ultimately the embryo transfer (ET) results. This technology, if success, will for the first time ...

  8. Microfabricated Neural Probe for the Rapid Detection of Multiple Neurochemicals I

    SBC: Diagnostic Biochips, Inc.            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The specific aim of this application is to test the feasibility of developing a long-lasting, implantable probe for rapid measurement of multiple neurochemicals in the brain. Currently, neuroscience research is limitedto three techniques for measuring the concentrations of neurochemicals in vivo; microdialysis to obtain average concentrations over a relatively ...

  9. Micro_patterned Surfaces for Reducing the Risk of Ventilator_Associated Pneumonia

    SBC: SANARIA INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A highly effective vaccine that targets the asymptomatic sporozoite (SPZ) and liver stages of the most lethal human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum (Pf), would be an ideal tool to prevent malaria infection, disease and transmission. After 3 decades of effort, the most effective subunit malaria vaccine only provides 50% protection against infection at 2 ...

  10. Mentoring Central: Mobile and Web Training for Mentees and their Caregivers

    SBC: SANARIA INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ideal tool for eliminating Plasmodium falciparum (Pf), the causative agent of 99% of all malaria deaths, is a highly effective vaccine that entirely prevents blood stage infection and thereby prevents all disease and transmission. Sanaria's goal is to develop and commercialize a Pf sporozoite (SPZ) vaccine that prevents Pf blood stage infection in gt ...
