Human Neural Stem Cells Produced by Direct Programming from Somatic Cells
Scientific breakthroughs have allowed human neural stem cells to be created from a patient’s own somatic cells. Although these artificially created neural cells hold great promise for the treatment of spinal cord injury and neurological disorders, they are created by genetic manipulation of cells using viral vectors. These genetic manipulati...

Antibiotic Microspheres For Treatment Of Infections And Osteomyelitis
More than 750,000 people in the United States have knees, hips, or shoulders replaced surgically each year. For about 30,000 of these patients the surgery results in osteomyelitis, a dangerous infection of the bone tissue. This infection results in repeat surgeries for repair, replacement, and sometimes even removal of the implant. To treat osteom...

Multistage Nanoparticle Drug Delivery Systems
The Market: The American Cancer Society estimates that in the United States alone, over 1,000,000 people are diagnosed with cancer. Many cancer deaths, specifically from cancers of the colon, breast, rectum, and uterine cervix cancers, could be significantly reduced with earlier detection and improved targeted delivery of chemotherapeutics. ...

Diagnostic and Method for Detection of Ankylosing Spondylitis
diagnostic and method for detection of aNKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS Background: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is one of the most common causes of inflammatory arthritis. AS is characterized by spinal and sacroiliac joint inflammation which causes pain and stiffness and eventually leads to bony ankylosis. Hip and peripheral joints ar...

Methods and composition for novel anti-cancer treatments
Background: The Wnt signaling pathway plays essential roles in development and is frequently hyperactivated in cancer cells as a driving mechanism. Nearly 90% of colon cancers, for examples are mutated in this pathway. However, direct targeting of this pathway for cancer drug discovery has been challenging due to receptor redundancy and compl...

Compositions and Methods for Regulation of Stem Cell Survival, Proliferation, and Differentiation
Background: Regenerative medicine is the process of using stem cells or related products to repair or repopulate organs or tissues damaged by a disease. Stem cell-based regenerative therapies may be used to heal or treat a wide range of conditions including cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease...

Preparation and Use of Alveoar Cells to Treat Lung Disorders
Background Alveolar type II (ATII) cells have numerous functions related to lung homeostatsis; these include (i) acting as progenitors for alveolar type I (ATI) cells, which is particularly important during re-epithelialization of the lung after injury; (ii) synthesis and secretion surfactant proteins, which reduces surface tension and helps p...

Treatment and Prevention of Vascular Disease with Hybrid Cyclooxygenase:Eicosanoid Proteins
Market: Some form of vascular disease effects one in four Americans, and costs for treatment reach into the billions. Prostanoids are an important, and emerging, therapeutic target in the campaign against vascular disease. Competitors and Current Problems: The prostanoid synthesis pathway is complicated, difficult to direct, and can have multi...

Targeting Tumors by Pattern Recognition: A Paradigm shift in Targeted Therapeutics
Market: The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 500,000 people will die from cancer in the U.S. in 2007. Many cancer deaths, specifically from cancers of the colon, breast, rectum, and uterine cervix cancers, could be significantly reduced with earlier detection and improved therapy. Cancer treatment of the 15 most common cancers a...
