The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Clinical Human Cell Production System for Broad Use

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As a result of growing evidence of their therapeutic potential in cancer, infectious diseases, and tissue repair, there is an enormous increase in the research and discovery of cell-based medical treatments that require cultured cells. A large unmet need exists for a cost-effective system that will facilitate the development of clinical cell production capabil ...

  2. Enhanced Tumor Antigen Priming of Dendritic Cell Vaccine

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by the applicant): Dendritic cells have been shown to initiate, regulate, and direct cytolytic T-cell-mediated immune responses against tumor antigens in human patients. Recent clincal trials have demonstrated induction of clinically significant immune responses against malignant diseases using DCs primed ex vivo with autologous tumor antigens including tumor cell lysates. E ...

  3. Automated Perfused Culture Process for Adult Stem Cells

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Adherent mesenchymal cell populations derived from bone marrow (BM) have the capability of differentiating into multiple cell lineages in vitro and in vivo. The potential use of these populations, referred to as marrow stromal cells (MSC), in clinical applications to treat nonhematopoietic disorders is being intensely investigated. Ex vivo expansion is being us ...

  4. Clinical-scale Production of Osteoprogenitor Cells

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Due to morbidity and limited amounts of material, alternatives to autologous grafts for bone repair are desirable. Mixtures of marrow stromal cells (MSC) and carrier matrices are known to augment bone repair. Increasing the number of MSC through ex vivo expansion may significantly increase the amount and rate of new bone formation. In this proposal, the abilit ...

  5. Automated Large-Scale Production of Endothelial Cells

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Treatment of ischemia by administration of bone marrow (BM)-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) or ex vivo expanded EPC populations has been shown to enhance vascular regeneration in animal models and in clinical trials. For cell therapy to be practical in a clinical setting, simple, efficient, GMP compliant methods for cell production are needed. Aastro ...

  6. A Bioactive Polymer Designed for Cardiac Assist Devices

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposal is the development of a novel, bioactive polymer for use in ventricular assist devices (VAD), and other long-term blood contacting implantable devices. Although VADs are becoming an important therapeutic option for patients in heart failure, serious problems persist secondary to thromboembolic complications and continue t ...

  7. An Artificial Myocardium for Pediatric Support

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposal is the commercialization of a pediatric ventricular assist device (VAD). Although, VADs, both implantable and paracorporeal, have become an important surgical option for adult patients with myocardial failure unresponsive to less aggressive therapy, no VADs are commercially available for short-term use in children or smal ...

  10. ABR train-block detection of small acoustic neuromas

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The evoked response called the ABR (Auditory Brainstem Response) is affected by nerve compression by acoustic neuromas, but is not presently sensitive enough to detect small tumors. If the ABR could be used to detect tumors, it would reduce overall medical costs and also provide a means to judge rate of tumor progression. This project proposes to improve the s ...
