  1. Endotoxin Neutralization as a Biomonitor for HIV Disease Progression

    SBC: BIODTECH, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Endotoxin neutralization in human plasma is an excellent indicator of chronic immune activation, which is the most accurate predictor of mortality in HIV. Recently we developed an assay using endotoxin neutralization asan indicator of bacterial translocation. This assay is accurate in discriminating control patients from those with inflammatory bowel disease in ...

  2. Preclinical Studies of PG70 LEAPS Peptide Vaccines for Rheumatoid Arthritis

    SBC: CEL-SCI CORPORATION            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently, FDA-licensed pharmaceuticals used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA) focus largely on alleviation of symptoms, either through pain management, general immunosuppression, or by antagonizing cytokines such as TNF-?. Despite recent advances in biologic therapies, these treatments do not address the underlying autoimmune condition. Ligand epitope antigen ...

  4. Assessment of Hypercoagulability in Cancer Patients Using Sonorheometry

    SBC: HEMOSONICS            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Problem: Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which encompasses the diseases of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is a common and life-threatening problem amongst cancer patients. In population-basedstudies, cancer has been associated with a 4-fold increase risk for VTE; in cancer patients undergoing systemic chemotherapy treatment the risk i ...

  6. Development of a new anti-inflammatory peptide for treatment of type II diabetes

    SBC: SERPIN PHARMA, LLC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Type II diabetes (T2DM) affects more than 5% of the population in Western countries. In the US alone, about 23.6M children and adults have diabetes, and the associated cost was estimated to 174 billion in 2007. The rise in T2DM prevalence is linked to the dramatically increased incidence of obesity, which now affects about a third of the adult US population. H ...

  8. Development of a Centralized Intelligence and Control AP Hub Device


    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite major advances in pharmaceuticals and medical device technology, the ability to safely and effectively control blood glucose in patients with Type 1 diabetes has remained a recalcitrant challenge and a significant source of human suffering and economic cost. With the advent of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), increasing effort has been focuse ...
