Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-16-302
Budget: 09/30/17 - 09/29/18

Autologous TGFB1 Modified CD34+ Stem Cells for Repair of Diabetic Macular Edema and Macular Ischemia Retinal vascular diseases, such as diabetic macular edema and macular ischemia remain a common cause of vision loss and blindness. Diabetes can damage the small blood vessels in the retina causing them to leak ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 09/30/09 - 09/29/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetic retinopathy induces retinal vascular endothelial damage resulting in ischemia, edema, and hemorrhage. Current available treatments for diabetic retinopathy are focused on end-stages of the disease. Importantly, these therapies do not address the primary pathology of retinal neurovascular degeneration...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-051
Budget: 09/17/09 - 08/31/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Accelerated Repair of Vascular Injury in Diabetes by TGF-beta Modified Stem Cells Abstract: Stem cells of hematopoietic origin (HSC) have been described that have the potential to repair vascular injury (CD34+ stem cells). We have recently demonstrated that a blockade of endogenous transforming growth factor-...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-21
Budget: 09/01/07 - 08/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Human embryonic stem cells (HuES) have the potential to generate an unlimited source of beta/islet cells for transplantation, however the biologic factors required for this process have been difficult to ascertain partly due to the lack of stage specific in vitro cell assays. Recently, we have developed a mur...
