5 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.3-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Currently available vaccines for infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK), also known as "pinkeye", have poor efficacy and low cross-protection between strains. This may be partly due to the lack of mucosal antibody responses, which are not induced by traditional inactivated bacterin vaccines. The use of alphavirus replicon particle (RP) vac...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.7-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Currently there are no truly effective interventions or therapeutic treatments for White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) in farmed shrimp. Current production practices focus on pathogen exclusion by stocking specific pathogen free (SPF) larvae, decontamination and filtration of water to prevent pathogen introduction, and strict biosecurity at hatcher...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.7-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

WSSV is the most serious disease in farmed marine shrimp causing considerable financial losses throughout the last decade across the globe. It infects a wide variety of crustacean hosts including numerous species of wild and cultured marine shrimp, crayfish, and prawns. Although a multitude of vaccination strategies have been attempted with mixe...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) costs the swine industry approximately $560M annually through reproductive loss in mature females and respiratory disease in growing pigs. There is a need for new vaccines for PRRSV to battle the strain evolution and heterogeneity of this RNA virus. Currently the only available US comme...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

There is a clear and immediate need for improved PRRSV vaccines. PRRS is estimated to cost pork producers in the U.S. nearly $600 million annually and with a national eradication effort being proposed, the need for a second generation vaccine tool that is effective and safe is crucial. The use of a vector such as replicon particles (RP) merges s...
