Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-81
Budget: 09/05/08 - 08/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is most notably recognized for its role in acne vulgaris, the most common skin disease, affecting 85-100% of the population at some point in their lives. Current treatments for vulgaris acne using isotretinoin (13-cis-retinoic acid) or antibiotics can have many undesirable e...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-80
Budget: 09/05/08 - 08/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of this proposal is to develop an effective and rapid method for disrupting the poultry-to-human transmission of avian influenza by in ovo injection of adenovirus-vectored avian influenza vaccines that can be mass-produced in cultured cells and mass-administered with a mechanized injector. The hypothe...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-48
Budget: 04/15/07 - 03/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the elderly. To date, no satisfactory treatment is available for AD. One of the pathological hallmarks of AD is deposits of amyloid protein (A) in neuritic plaques and cerebral vessels. Increasing lines of evidence support the notion that ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 03/15/06 - 09/30/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of this proposal is to develop an effective and rapid method for disrupting the poultry-to- human transmission of avian influenza by in ovo injection of flu vaccines that can be mass- administered with a mechanized injector. The hypothesis is that mass-vaccination of poultry against an outbreak of avi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-135
Budget: 05/15/03 - 02/16/04

Malaria is a serious threat to people including military personal in endemic areas. So far no prophylactic vaccine is available. The aim of this study is to develop a powerful prime/boost vaccination protocol against malaria using DNA vaccines to prime the immune system and recombinant adenovirus vectors to boost it. The hypothesis is that ...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: RFA-AI-02-05
Budget: 09/06/02 - 09/05/04
PI: Hui Xu

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the wake of bio-terrorism, anthrax has become a real concern for public. Anthrax is listed as a category A biological disease by the CDC. Inhalation of anthrax spores can result in death due to rapid fatal hemorrhage. Since anthrax aerosol is odorless, invisible and easily spread, the most effective wa...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/02 - 05/31/04

DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from Applicant's Abstract) A major limitation with the contemporary vaccination program as a preventative measure against tetanus is the encumbrance associated with multiple needle-dependent injections. Our aim is to develop a simple method for the delivery of tetanus vaccines by topical applica...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/15/02 - 03/31/04

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's disease (AD) and inclusion body myositis (IBM) share a number of common pathologies such as deposits of amyloid beta-protein (AB) and paired helical filaments, although such pathologies are mostly restricted to brain for AD and to muscle for IBM. Transgenic mice (Tg 13592) that express the 99-amin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/01 - 03/29/03

DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from Applicant's Abstract) Our aim is to develop a simple and effective method for the delivery of rabies vaccines by topical application of adenovirus-based expression vectors using a skin patch in a noninvasive mode. The hypothesis is that the expression of rabies glycoprotein (GP) ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/01 - 02/28/03

DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): Our aim is to develop a simple method for the delivery of anthrax vaccines by topical application of adenovirus-based expression vectors using a skin patch in a noninvasive mode. The hypothesis is that the expression of Bacillus anthracis protective antigen (PA) in the outer layer o...
