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


    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 ...

  2. Targeting the Core Binding Factor tumor suppressor in MLL-fusion AML

    SBC: P2D, INC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): RUNX1 is considered a beneficial tumor suppressor in myeloid neoplasms. Inhibition of RUNX1 function has been implicated as an important mechanistic event in the development of core-binding factor-(CBF)-leukemia and MLL-fusion leukemia. Inactivating RUNX1 mutations are frequently found in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). However, RUNX1 mutation is us ...

  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. Fecal DNA Testing for Colorectal cancer Screening

    SBC: GLC Biotechnology, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This is the Phase I application of a SBIR project that will be devoted to develop a new fecal DNA test for CRC screening, which will utilize a new tri-marker panel discovered in our preliminary study. CRC is the seconddeadliest cancer in USA. The good news is that early detection along with resection is associated with a five-year survival rate of nearly 100%. ...

  6. Large-Area Plasma Panel Detectors for Particle Beam Radiation Therapy

    SBC: INTEGRATED SENSORS, LLC            Topic: NCI

    Abstract A joint DOE-NCI workshop on ion beam therapy (January 2013, Bethesda, MD) has identified an ambitious set of technological developments needed to support a world-class treatment program for ion beam therapy. One important requirement is the ability to provide detectors that afford single-particle registration at high data rates with high degree of uniformity and minimal interference with ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Affinity reagents for the detection of modified RNAs and Transcriptome-wide mapping of RNA modifications

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Biological RNAs undergo extensive post-transcriptional modifications. These modifications are important in promoting the accuracy and efficiency of gene expression in biological systems. To decipher the functions of RNA modifications, robust analytical tools and methods that enable scientists to monitor, manipulate, and transcriptome-wide mapping RNA modificat ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
