  1. ApoFasL as a novel treatment for Type 1 Diabetes in Nonhuman Primates

    SBC: APOIMMUNE, INC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic islet transplantation is a viable approach for the treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, this therapeutic approach suffers from graft rejection. Dr. Shirwan, founder of ApoImmune, has developed a novel immunotherapeutic approach aimed at tolerance induction to alloantigens without chronic use of general immunosuppression. This approach, terme ...

  2. Solution-Phase Automated Synthesis of Oligosaccharides


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The synthesis of carbohydrates remains a complex exercise that involves tremendous labor and large amounts of expensive building blocks and reagents. Even once a process for making a carbohydrate has been developed, manufacture of that molecule in all the variants that biologists demand for their studies to drive glycomics remains labor and material intensive. ...

  3. In Vivo Assessment of Embryonic Stem Cell Teratoma Prevention

    SBC: BIOINVISION INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The capacity to evaluate the teratoma forming potential of differentiated embryonic stem cell populations represents an urgent need before widespread therapeutic application of these cells is possible. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University and BioInVision, Inc. will join together to create platform technologies for validating existing embryonic stem ce ...

  4. Small Molecule targeting of NADPH oxidase in neutrophils

    SBC: P2D, INC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acute lung injury (ALI) and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) are characterized by a rapid and severe respiratory failure, arising after clinical events including major surgery, trauma, multiple transfusions and sepsis. ALI/ARDS have an associated mortality of 40-80% and current pharmacological modalities have been unsuccessful in decreasing mortality. ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Intranasal Naloxone: An Opioid Overdose Antidote

    SBC: ANTIOP, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a significant unmet medical need to provide additional pharmacologic treatments for treatment and prevention of opioid overdose. This Fast Track STTR project proposes to apply drug delivery technologies to develop a novel use for a nasally delivered pharmaceutical - naloxone (NLX) hydrochloride - for the emergency treatment of opioid overdose by emerge ...

  7. Commercialization of a Diagnostic Test for Alzheimer's Disease

    SBC: SCOUT DIAGNOSTICS            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The major barriers to preventing or treating Alzheimer's disease (AD) are its unknown pathogenesis/etiology and the lack of an objective, sensitive and specific biomarker of the disease, particularly at the early stages when therapeutic interventions would likely have the greatest efficacy. The basic hypothesis of this project is that levels of a unique high mo ...

  8. Novel estrogen receptor ligands from plant genomics

    SBC: NAPROGENIX, INC.            Topic: NCCAM

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Human nuclear receptor (HNR) ligands have potential value as pharmacotherapies or chemopreventive agents for many hormone-responsive cancers. The primary aim of this STTR is to transfer an academic plant genomics technology into drug discovery, targeting HNR ligands. Estrogen receptor (ER) ligands in plants will be used for proof of application, because these ...

  9. A device containing an immobilized chelator to remove aluminum from total parente

    SBC: ALKYMOS, INC            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A high percentage of the ~ 500,000 children born prematurely each year in the US require intravenous feeding after birth because they do not tolerate oral feeding. This is accomplished with a total parenteral nutrition (TPN) solution, which is prepared from component solutions: small and large volume parenterals (SVPs and LVPs). Aluminum (Al) is a common contam ...

  10. Innovative Solid State Lighting Replacements for Industrial and Test Facility Locations

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: T1002

    The proposed innovation is the replacement of existing test stand and parking lot fixtures with current SSL LED technology. The replacement fixtures will reduce energy consumption, generate less heat and provide maintenance free operation for over 50,000 hours. An explosion-proof fixture is capable of containing an internal combustion event without allowing flames or hot gasses to escape to the s ...
