  1. Transdermal Delivery of Buprenorphine Prodrugs

    SBC: ALLTRANZ, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently buprenorphine (BUP) is used in the treatment of opioid abuse and for pain management. It can also be used improperly and abused as an opioid. In the United States, buprenorphine is marketed in sublingual and injectable forms. While the drug provides effective treatment, these forms of drug delivery are not desirable because of their peak plasma level ...

  2. Exosomal microRNA profiles as diagnostic biomarkers of ovarian cancer

    SBC: TEKSHIFA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Detection of ovarian cancer at Stage I results in 5-year survivals of greater than 90%; however, only 23% of ovarian cancers are diagnosed early, with 67% being diagnosed with metastatic disease. Thus, new markers are being sought to accurate identify patients with ovarian cancer, particularly in early stage. Emerging evidence suggests the potential involvement ...

  4. Delivery of Polyphenols in Gum for Treatment of Gingivitis

    SBC: FOUR TIGERS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Periodontitis represents a polymicrobial disease, in which a complex microbial ecology that matures in biofilms in the subgingival sulcus triggers a chronic immunoinflammatory lesion that destroys soft and hard tissues of the periodontium. The ability to identify therapeutics, to enable more effective control and/or prevention of gingival inflammation, is a cr ...

  5. Ultra-soft atomic force microscope (USAFM) technology using nano-cantilevers for

    SBC: NaugaNeedles LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NaugaNeedles LLC in collaboration with researchers from Purdue University are proposing to develop an advanced new Ultra-Soft Atomic Force Microscope (USAFM). This USAFM can gently create images of soft biological samples in buffer solutions with sub-picoNewton (pN) forces and sub-nm lateral resolution. This new AFM technology will have a high-bandwidth to ensu ...

  6. Natural Product Protease Inhibitors: Therapeutics for Virulence of Oral Pathogens

    SBC: ORACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Oral infections associated with the gingival margin and subgingival sulcus lead to host inflammatory responses. Gingivitis is primarily a response to the bacteria in plaque. This disease affects nearly everyone in the population, at some time during their life. Periodontitis is a multifactorial disease that encompasses the hard and soft tissue, microbial col ...

  7. A non-surgical embryo transfer (NSET) device for producing gene-modified mice

    SBC: PARATECHS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to genetically modify mice through methods of gene transfer in fertilized mouse embryos (transgenic mice) or gene modification in embryonic stem (ES) cells (gene targeting) has dramatically increased the value and use of mice in biomedical research. . The production of gene-modified mice requires the surgical transfer of embryos into female mice. T ...

  8. Potent antimicrobial peptides from carrion beetles

    SBC: PARATECHS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Antibiotic resistant pathogenic microbes are responsible for thousands of human fatalities worldwide each year. The heightening risk of emerging pathogen resistance in clinical settings promotes the need for discovery and development of new antibiotics with a high degree of activity, potency, and specificity. ParaTechs Corporation has identified proteinaceous a ...

  9. Portable pneumatic driver for counterpulsation therapy

    SBC: SCR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): SCR, Inc. (Louisville, KY) is developing a chronic implantable CPD system to treat HF patients who may be responsive to long-term counterpulsation support. The CPD has been developed for superficial implantation via a pacemaker incision without the need to enter the chest and enables complete patient mobility. The CPD is a 32-ml stroke volume polyurethane-lined ...

    SBIR Phase II 2009 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. Genomic Biomarkers for Neuropsychiatric Illnesses

    SBC: SUREGENE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this project is to develop validated, genetic biomarkers to aid in more accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment of schizophrenia and related neuropsychiatric illnesses, including bipolar disorder. In Phase I, SureGene demonstrated the feasibility of using specific dimensions of mental illness to discover novel genes and genetic var ...
