  1. Amelioration of Claustrophobia and Disruptive Patient Motion in MR Imaging

    SBC: HYPNALGESICS, LLC            Topic: NCCAM

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Claustrophobia and disruptive patient motion are common impediments to MRI examination, but they may be prevented or ameliorated with a non-pharmacologic behavioral intervention administered by trained staff. The potential benefits of such an intervention are highly significant, considering that the alternatives are to cancel the study or administer sedation. I ...

  2. Virus-Targeted Therapy for Malignancies

    SBC: Phoenicia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is associated with a number of human malignancies for which there are presently few effective treatments. Lymphoid malignancies caused by, or associated with, Epstein-Barr virus include Burkitt's lymphoma, T/NK lymphomas, some T- and B-cell lymphomas, approximately half of Hodgkin's lymphomas and all post-transplant lymphopro ...

  3. Rapid Testing of Drug-Resistant BCR-ABL(+)Leukemia Cells

    SBC: BIOSENSE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs is an ongoing problem that results in eventual treatment failures or suboptimal patient outcomes. In cancer cells treated with drugs to which they are sensitive, the stress responseis the first step in the subsequent cascade leading to cell death (apoptotic, necrotic or autophagy). The recent availability of a sensing modali ...

  4. Contrast agents for high-sensitivity ultrasound molecular imaging of tumor angiog

    SBC: TARGESON, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Molecular imaging techniques have strong potential in the setting of preclinical research, primarily for drug discovery and basic science in the field of cancer research. In particular, high-frequency ultrasound is a powerful imaging modality for phenotyping and monitoring the response to experimental therapy. Relative to other molecular imaging techniques, ult ...

  5. Screening of FoxA1-ER-DNA disruptors for development of breast cancer therapeutic

    SBC: Proteovista LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Estrogen receptor a (ERa) is the major therapeutic target for breast cancer, and ERa binding at target genes in breast cancer cells is guided by DNA binding pioneer factor proteins such as FoxA1. Although tamoxifen is asuccessful therapeutic for suppressing ER-mediated gene regulation, resistance to tamoxifen occurs in most breast cancer patients within five ye ...

  6. A new paradigm for antibody-directed conjugates

    SBC: CENTROSE LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is among the most common and lethal cancers yet, the current standard of care for advanced stage NSCLC provides only modest improvements in overall survival or quality of life. Thus,there exists a significant unmet need for new effective therapies to treat NSCLC. Herein we describe an innovative new type of antibody drug conj ...

  7. Global Proteomic Screening by MALDI Spectrometric Imaging of Protein-Bead Arrays

    SBC: AMBERGEN, INC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sequencing of the human genome has led to a new and even more ambitious goal - characterization of the human proteome. Such an endeavor involves not only understanding the function of hundreds of thousands of differentproteins expressed in human cells but also characterizing the millions of potential interactions that can occur with other cellular and extracel ...

  8. Developing a plectin-1 targeted imaging agent for the detection of pancreatic can

    SBC: iTi Health            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an intractable clinical problem, typically presenting with metastasis at the time of diagnosis and exhibiting profound resistance to existing therapies. Currently, the standarddiagnostic course includes CT or MRI scans which do not have optimal sensitivity and specificity for accurately diagnosing and determining resec ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 Department of Health and Human Services
  9. High Throughput Method to Assess SNP Functionality in Prostate Cancer

    SBC: Proteovista LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A critical unmet need in implementing personalized medicine is the ability to sort through the millions of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) present in the human genome and to pinpoint which of these DNA variations are causative in disease. A key under-studied function of SNPs is their ability to generate or disrupt genomic binding sites for transcription ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. A Clinical Decision Support Tool for Electronic Health Records

    SBC: Inflexxion, Inc.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Substance abuse treatment is often complicated by problems such as depression, family and interpersonal conflicts, and legal issues. When these issues are addressed with effective, evidence-based treatments (EBTs), outcomes improve. To improve the quality of addiction treatment, experts have called for the adoption of a continuing care management approach, invo ...
