  1. Neuroimaging tools for presurgical brain mapping


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) tools to assist the diagnosis and treatment of human patients with a brain tumor or other operable pathology. The specific focus of this proposal is to produce a practical, clinic-ready suite of MR imaging methods, analyses and display tools to solve the number one impediment to ...

  2. Clinical Translation of an Anti-Metastatic Antibody for Breast Cancer Therapy

    SBC: FOR-ROBIN, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal aims to develop a novel, highly-specific targeted therapy for treatment of breast cancer. The long-term objective is to convert the proprietary intellectual property, the mouse monoclonal antibody (McAb)JAA-F11, which targets the pancarcinoma Thomsen-Friedenreich antigen (TF-Ag) to a humanized form for use as an adjunct with conventional therapy ...

  3. Screens for Novel Agonists/Antagonists of Endocrine Fibroblast Growth Factors

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Agave BioSystems and Professor Makoto Kuro-o at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center are proposing a collaborative effort to screen for novel small molecules acting as agonists or antagonists of the Klotho and Klotho- dependent endocrine Fibroblast Growth Factors. The expected outcome of this Phase I effort will be the validation of a high-throug ...

  4. Preclinical Efficacy And Safety Evaluation Of Graphene Nanoparticle-based Magneti

    SBC: Theragnostic Technologies Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    Abstract This STTR phase 1 proposal investigates the safety and efficacy of a novel high-performance carbon nanostructure-based magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent for the imaging and monitoring of patients with renal failure. Every year, in the US, approximately 20 million people are treated for mild to severe renal failure. A significant number of cases (greater than 50%) related to ...

  5. Image-Based Quantification and Analysis of Longitudinal Lung Nodule Deformations

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NIBIB

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Image-based evaluation of pathologies over time is complicated by variability in image acquisition and patient positioning, deformations due to respiratory and cardiac motion, and the clinical standard in radiology of comparing unaligned images. This application proposes a computational method for longitudinal image analysis that captures, illustrates and quant ...

  6. In-situ, real-time oxygen sensor to monitor the long-term efficacy of aerobicall

    SBC: ChromoSense LLC            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Groundwater and soil contamination has been associated with higher incidence of birth defects and cancer. Monitored natural attenuation of contaminants via biodegradation has proven effective in lowering contaminant levels, but these processes depend critically on dissolved oxygen levels. This project proposes to develop a robust oxygen sensor compound with che ...

  7. Zonular Capture Accommodative-Disaccommodative Intraocular Lens System

    SBC: Z Lens LLC            Topic: NEI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We are developing an accommodative - disaccommodative intraocular lens implant (ADIOL) system based on a novel concept of capturing zonular tension and transmitting it unimpeded to a dynamically position intraocular lens system. This is made possible by a zonular capture haptic (ZCH) apparatus. This apparatus lends itself equally well to several possible combin ...

  8. Innovative Use of the Noom Monitor Mobile Application for CBT-GSH in Binge Eaters

    SBC: Noom, Inc.            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder are marked by significant levels of impairment and psychiatric comorbidity, affecting approximately 5-7% of the US population. Guided self-help cognitive behavioral (CBT-GSH) therapy has been show to be an effective treatment to reduce binge eating for patient with both disorders. However, there is limited uptake among ...

  9. Multimodality image-based assessment system for traumatic brain injury

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Nearly 1.7 million Americans suffer traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually, which constitutes an important and significant US medical health concern. Although neuroimaging plays an important role in pathology localization and surgical planning, TBI clinical care does not currently take full advantage of neuroimaging computational technology. We propose to develo ...

  10. Presurgical brain mapping with functional connectivity MRI


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The diagnosis and treatment of patients with brain tumors and other diseases is often critically dependent on functional neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI) to identify healthy brain tissue that must be avoided during invasive surgery or radiation treatment. But, conventional fMRI often fails (up to 30 percent) or cannot be used with patients who are unable to adequately ...
