  1. A novel therapy for sepsis

    SBC: BIOPOWERTECH            Topic: N/A

    Description: (Provided by Applicant) Sepsis a serious life-threatening condition resulting from a harmful inflammatory reaction of the body due to bacterial infection. The mortality rate of sepsis remains high in intensive care units around the world but therapeutic interventions have been largely unsuccessful. Clearly, there is a great need for inventing efficacious therapeutic drugs to treat pat ...

  2. A Shielded Conditionally Replicative Adenoviral Vector

    SBC: VECTORLOGICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Conditionally replicative adenovirus vectors (CRAds) are novel vectors with utility as virotherapy agents for alternative cancer therapies. These vectors already have established a broad safety record in humans. However, two confounding problems limit efficacy of these drug candidates, the paucity of the native Ad receptor on tumor tissues, and host humoral res ...

  3. A Simulation Tool to Enable Identification of Critical Network Interactions Using

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): One of the main challenges in the discovery of intracellular biomarkers and identification of therapeutic targets is the lack of a mechanistic understanding of the complex underlying pathways. The tremendous increase in both the quantity and diversity of cellular data represents a significant challenge to researchers seeking to construct biologically relevant ...

  4. A Test for Salt Sensitivity in People with Essential Hypertension

    SBC: SEQUELA, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary: In Phase I we developed a model system and a prototype Salt Sensitivity Assay to establish proof-of-principle . In Phase II we propose the evaluation of the prototype that will quantitatively measure our biomarker in the target population. An ideal biomarker for salt sensitivity would be one that is linked to the underlying cause of ...

  5. A Uroguanylin Based ELISA for Salt Sensitivity

    SBC: SEQUELA, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION: This proposal is submitted in response to the program announcement PA-03-123 "Development of diagnostic screening test for salt sensitivity (SBIR/STTR)" from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The overall hypothesis of our laboratory is the principle that NaCl homeostasis is maintained, in part, by an entero-renal endocrine axis in which renal NaCI e ...

  6. Acne Vaccines Targeting a Surface Sialidase and a Secreted CAMP Factor Toxin

    SBC: VAXIN INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is most notably recognized for its role in acne vulgaris, the most common skin disease, affecting 85-100% of the population at some point in their lives. Current treatments for vulgari s acne using isotretinoin (13-cis-retinoic acid) or antibiotics can have many undesirable effects, including depression, teratogenicity, hormon ...

  7. Adenovirus vectored vaccines for Alzheimer's disease

    SBC: VAXIN INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the elderly. To date, no satisfactory treatment is available for AD. One of the pathological hallmarks of AD is deposits of amyloid protein (Aa) in neuritic plaques and cerebral vessels. Increasing lines of evidence support the notion that Aa and its precursor (APP) play pathogenetic roles i ...

  8. Autonomous, Unattended, Reagentless Biological Agent Detector

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: CBD05111

    The goal of this project is to investigate the feasability of a unique sampling method that will lead to the development of a reagentless infrared (IR) based BW agent detection system. The current JPBDS uses lateral flow immunoassay technology as the final step in detecting bioagents, and has a detection limit of 10^5 spores/ml[ref 1]. Preliminary data from our infrared approach indicates a mini ...

  9. BRAIN TEMPERATURE MONITORING IN NEONATES

    SBC: MERIDIAN MEDICAL SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) represents a serious problem in newborns, occurring in 3-9 of every 1000 term infants, with about half of these HIE babies dying or suffering life-long severe handicaps, such as mental retardation or cerebral palsy. Current efforts to reduce the effects of HIE by hypothermia (cooling) have been hampered by the lack of a ...

  10. BRAIN TEMPERATURE MONITORING IN NEONATES (PHASE II)

    SBC: MERIDIAN MEDICAL SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) represents a serious problem in newborns, occurring in 3-9 of every 1,000 term infants, with about half of these HIE babies dying or suffering life-long severe handicaps, such as mental retardation or cerebral palsy. Current efforts to reduce the effects of HIE by hypothermia (cooling) have been hampered by the lack of a re ...
