  1. Rapid Detection of Endemic Fungal Infections in the U.S.

    SBC: NANOSHELL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Lectin recognition of fungal cell wall polysaccharides will be used to develop a rapid screening chip technology for the detection endemic fungal infection in blood. Fungal infections are life threatening to immune-compromised and immuno-suppressed patients (i.e. premature and malnourished infants, AIDS and cancer patients. seniors, and organ donation recipients). In addition to routine screenin ...

  2. A Quantum Similarity Approach for the Discovery of Anti-Trypanosome Drug Leads

    SBC: GRADIENT BIOMODELING, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) is an infectious disease with a large global health burden occurring primarily in Central and Eastern Africa. HAT is 100% fatal if untreated and the current drug therapies suffer frompoor safety profiles, difficult treatment regimens, limited effectiveness, and high costs. Furthermore, drugs that cross the blood brain barrier ...

  3. Multiplexed Ovarian Cancer Microfluidic Tissue Microarray

    SBC: Carterra, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary We propose an instrument system for automated, multiplexed cell- and tissue-based experiments (i.e. tissue microarrays) called the Microfluidic Flow Cell Array (MFCA). The MFCA consists of a microfluidic flow cell array integrated with an inverted fluorescent microscope, allowing the observation of 48 flow chambers simultaneously or an individual chamber at higher magnification. Th ...

  4. The Development of Novel Inhibitors of BCL2 Gene Expression as Anticancer Therape

    SBC: TETRAGENE, LLC            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary Evasion of apoptosis is a hallmark of cancer and is associated with oncogenesis, tumor maintenance, and resistance to conventional chemotherapy. BCL-2 was the first identified anti-apoptotic factor and is a member of the BCL-2 family of proteins that cooperate in the regulation of programmed cell death. BCL-2 plays a dominant role in the survival of multiple lymphoid malignancies a ...

  5. Targeting ether lipid biosynthesis for disease

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cancer is a significant health burden in the US and across the globe, representing the second leading cause of death in the US. Cancer cells have metabolic pathways that are altered significantly compared to normal cells. As a result, the pathways involved (lipid biosynthesis for example) are considered excellent targets for therapeutic intervention. The levels ...

  6. Glycosaminoglycans to Treat and Prevent Radiation-Induced Oral Mucositis

    SBC: GLYCOMIRA, LLC            Topic: NIDCR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): GlycoMira Therapeutics has developed safe and effective anti-inflammatory glycosaminoglycan derivatives and proposes to test the feasibility of using its lead compound to treat or prevent oral mucositis. Mucositis is acommon and debilitating complication of cancer treatment. Cancer patients undergoing radiation or chemotherapy often develop this painful inflam ...

  7. Calcaftor, a CFTR stabilizer for Cystic Fibrosis treatment

    SBC: Calista Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Calista Therapeutics has invented Calcaftor, a first-in-class peptide drug that can treat all Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. Calcaftor is validated in the gold standard pre-clinical model of CF using F508 -CFTR lung tissue harvested from CF transplant patients. Results from this model demonstrated a gt25 hour duration of action that enables once daily inhaled n ...

  8. Patient Breath Simulator for Capnometer Performance Verification

    SBC: WITTING INNOVATION LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Capnometers can fail in a number of ways that are not detectable using current static calibration testing procedures. These failures could include leaks in the sample line, a weak sample pump, inadequate dynamic response, flow restriction and flow obstruction. Failure of a capnometer during critical care procedures such as sedation and anesthesia can be life th ...

  9. Inter-alpha-inhibitors in Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Injury

    SBC: PROTHERA BIOLOGICS, LLC            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neonatal hypoxia-ischemia (HI) remains a major cause of acute perinatal brain injury, leading ultimately to neurologic dysfunction manifesting as cerebral palsy, mental retardation, and epilepsy. Cerebral oxygen deprivation and/or reduced blood flow due to umbilical cord occlusion, prolonged labor, and/or intracranial hemorrhage produce an inflammatory respons ...

  10. HT Label-Free Screening and Kinetic Analysis of Small Molecules and Biologics

    SBC: Carterra, Inc.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Real-time label-free technologies such as surface plasmon resonance biosensors provide high-resolution information about the kinetics, affinity, stoichiometry, activity, and specificity, of two (or more) binding partners. While the application f biosensors is well established, current instrumentation has limited sampling throughput. Screens of even a fairly sma ...
