  1. A Nanofluidic Nanoplasmonic Platform for Multiplexing Detection of Cancer Biomark

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project aims to develop a novel nanofluidic-nanoplasmonic platform to realize multiplexed monitoring of biological binding processes, specifically for detection of cancer biomarkers in bio-fluids. In contrast to current large-sized, cumbersome surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensing technology, the proposed device is comprised of a multilayer nanostructure ...

  2. A Novel 'Zinc-Stapled' Long-Acting Insulin Analog


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A Phase 1 SBIR program of pre-clinical development is proposed focusing on a novel long-acting insulin analog for the basal treatment of diabetes mellitus. Designated Insulin-ZN, our product is a derivative of human insulin containing novel zinc-binding sites at the periphery of the insulin hexamer. The non-classical zinc-binding sites are mediated by paired (i ...

  3. A Novel Expansion of Primary Leukemia Stem Cells

    SBC: Arteriocyte, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Arteriocyte's long-term objective is to develop a platform for ex vivo expansion of leukemic stem cell (LSC) based on cytokine-enriched medium and the company's proprietary nanofiber culture scaffold (NANEX). Cancer stem cell research is of significant importance because, this approach has the potential to create an effective therapy that overcomes challenges o ...

  5. Ambulatory System for Hydrocephalus Shunt Monitoring

    SBC: H-CUBED            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year, there are over 10,000 newborns diagnosed with hydrocephalus in the United States. Hydrocephalus, an excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the head, is a lifelong disease with no known cure. Fortunately, hydrocephalus can be managed with CSF shunts which redirect excessive CSF elsewhere in the body. Unfortunately, 30-40% o ...

  6. Controlling Inflammation Due to Cardiac Devices

    SBC: Novelmed Therapeutics Inc            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NovelMed's lead drug candidate prevents biomaterials induced cellular activation. Activated cells release inflammatory mediators that are responsible for pathological trauma that leads to cardiac, lung, liver, and brain injuries during surgical procedures that require cardiac devices. Our findings provide convincing support for developing YalcixiMab as a treatm ...

  7. Demand Driven Healthcare Scheduling using Flexible Shifts and Monte-Carlo Simulat

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: NINR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The shortage of nurses and medical technologists is accelerating. Shortages can be reduced by scheduling staff to precisely meet the hour-by-hour demand for medical service. Think of bank teller scheduling, where more staff are scheduled at peak demand. Current attempts to schedule to demand are relatively primitive: a small number of quantized fixed shifts, fo ...

  8. Development of a BBB Model to Study Transendothelial Cell Migration

    SBC: FLOCEL INC.            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Increasing evidence indicates that systemic inflammation and the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which becomes the target of overreacting or misguided immune cells that determine BBB failure and immune extravasations into the brain parenchyma, are involved in the pathogenesis of neurological diseases such as meningitis, inflammation, Alzheimer's disease, and multipl ...

  9. Development of recombinant rhTL1A protein for cancer treatment

    SBC: BIOPOWERTECH            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in women and the second most common cause of cancer death in women in the United States. In 2009, approximately 40,170 women in the US are estimated to die from breast cancer. In most cases, death results from metastasis of breast cancer cells. Cancer patients with metastasis cannot currently be cured. Therefore, ...

  10. Device for Surgical Adhesion Prevention

    SBC: Novelmed Therapeutics Inc            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Postoperative adhesion formation is the single greatest complication of surgery. Twenty seven million surgical procedures are performed annually in the U.S. where the patient is at risk for the complications from surgical adhesions. After surgery, fibrous adhesions form in the peritoneum, central nervous system, pericardium, pleura and synovium. Fibrous adhesio ...
