  1. ChemoFilter: A Novel Catheter Device to Enable High-Dose Chemotherapy Treatment

    SBC: CHEMOFILTER, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary: Intravenous dosing of drugs for applications ranging from cancer chemotherapy to anti-microbials to lytic (blood clot dissolving) agents is limited by systemic toxicity. Currently, the only ways to remove drugs from the blood are throughnatural metabolism or costly impractical measures such as dialysis. Despite intense focus on targeted drug delivery agents, these therapies are c ...

  3. Developing Novel Therapies for Treating Breast-Cancer-Related Lymphedema

    SBC: ADEPTHERA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Destruction of lymphatic vessels during the treatment of breast cancer by surgery and/or radiation therapy can lead to the development of secondary lymphedema. The breast-cancer-related lymphedema is associated with debilitating limb swelling, chronic inflammation, tissue fibrosis, and increased susceptibility to infection. It has been estimated that approximat ...

  5. Development of Peptide Antibiotic Nucleic Acids

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant One of the challenges of research in infectious diseases is to find ways to use the increasing knowledge of the mechanisms underlying disease transformation and progression to develop novel therapeutic strategies for diseases such as increasing menace of bacterial infections Targeting specific RNA such as rRNA which are involved in proliferation and survival ...

  6. Discovery of novel small molecule analgesics

    SBC: Epigen Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Peripheral nerve injury can lead to anomalous sensations referred to as neuropathic pain. Nerve injury may result from a variety of insults ranging from frank injury to the nerve though sectioning or compression, to chemotherapeutics and autoimmune conditions. Symptoms often include continuous burning pain and abnormal sensory sensations such as allodynia (pain ...

  7. F10: a novel therapeutic to treat refractory or relapsed AML

    SBC: SOUTHEAST TECH INVENTURES            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) affected ~14,600 new patients in 2013 in the US and caused over 10,000 deaths, primarily in older adults. The current chemotherapy regimen, a combination of cytarabine (AraC) and anthracyclines such as daunorubicin (DNR), has resulted in 5-year survival rates of only 30-40% (less than 10% in patients over 60 years old). The principa ...

  8. Flexible Ion-Mediated Artificial Retina

    SBC: LAMBDAVISION, INC.            Topic: NEI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A flexible, protein-based, ion-mediated retinal implant is proposed for the restoration of vision for patients with retinal degenerative diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa(RP). The implant under development uses the retinal- containing protein, bacteriorhodopsin (BR), to convert light into a pH gradient. This gradi ...
