  1. A cost-effective bioreactor to advance functional tissue engineering of cartilage

    SBC: APEX BIOMEDICAL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Osteoarthritis (OA) is the leading cause of chronic disability in the United States. A clinical goal in the treatment and prevention of OA is to develop replacement cartilage using tissue engineering (TE) technologies. Although TE cartilage presently lacks the mechanical stability of native cartilage, studies have demonstrated that mechanical stability can be e ...

  7. Application of CDX-MDM in Pre-Clinical Model of Murine Pulmonary Emphysema

    SBC: Covenant Therapeutics LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to exploit a newly discovered anti-inflammatory function involving the aminopeptidase activity of the leukotriene A4 hydrolase for the treatment of pulmonary emphysema. The leukotrieneA4 hydrolase is a dual-functioning enzyme with dichotomously opposing functions. As an epoxide hydrolase, it catalyzes the conversion of leukotri ...

  10. A Thermo-responsive Biopharmaceutical to Enhance the Tear Production of Lacritin

    SBC: EYERX RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: NEI

    Project Summary/Abstract Ocular pharmaceuticals predominantly use the topical route of administration, which involves a number of benefits and limitations when compared to systemic drug routes. A major limitation of the ocular topical route is the rapid loss of drug via tearing and nasolacrimal drainage, requiring the use of frequent dosing and high drug concentrations that then create formulation ...
