Therapeutic uses of the scavenging protein cocktail to treat plasma protein imbalances or depletion
TS-053103 — Uncontrolled hemolysis (i.e., destruction of red blood cells) is characterized by the increase of circulating toxic cell-free hemoglobin, heme and iron in the bloodstream. In vivo, the body’s natural supply of plasma scavenger proteins acts to neutralize these toxic species. However, these scavenger proteins such as haptoglobin, hemopexin and transferrin, which detoxify hemoglobin, heme and iron, respectively, are depleted in various clinical conditions such as hemorrhagic shock, burns, surgery, organ transplantation, sepsis and trauma. Dr. Andre Palmer’s lab at The Ohio State University has developed a novel therapeutic protein mixture, which can be used to treat plasma protein imbalances or depletion caused by the adverse events described above. The properties of this protein mixture are beneficial as they lend themselves to an inexpensive manufacturing process and potential improvements in clinical outcomes.
Fluid replacement as part of resuscitation efforts in clinical care is a cornerstone of treatment especially in cases with severe trauma. The regular usage of these fluids in hospitals requires the mixture to be easily transported, easily stored and applicable across a wide variety of patients. To…

Dynamic Nanobiosensor Platform for Viral and Tumor Nucleic Acid Detection
TS-052072 — A rapid, nucleic acid-based, point-of-care diagnostic.
The current gold-standard molecular diagnostic assay, quantitative reverse transcriptase (RT)-PCR, although accurate, is labor intensive (5-step workflow) and time consuming. Due to centralized laboratory testing, the time to results for RT-PCR can vary from 1 day up to 2 weeks, depending on the s…

Development of a live attenuated vaccine for leishmaniasis using CRISPR technology
TS-051167 — Methods of production and use of modified Leishmania species and compositions of live, attenuated organisms, immunogenic compositions, vaccines, and pharmaceutical compositions.
Leishmaniasis is a neglected tropical disease caused by infection with protozoans of the 15 genus Leishmania that is transmitted by infected sand flies. Worldwide, an estimated 1 billion people are at risk of infection in tropical and subtropical countries, with up to 1.7 million new cases in 98 c…

Novel acellular vaccine for protection against Bordetella infection
TS-050524 — Despite high vaccine coverage, whooping cough caused by Bordetella pertussis remains one of the most common vaccine-preventable diseases worldwide. Introduction of whole-cell pertussis (wP) vaccines in the 1940s and acellular pertussis (aP) vaccines in 1990s reduced mortality due to pertussis. Des…

Mini-PCDH15 for treatment of deafness
TS-050433 — A gene therapy solution for Usher Syndrome Type 1F.
Mutations in PCDH15 cause Usher 1F, a recessive syndrome characterized by profound congenital deafness and absence of vestibular function, and progressive blindness beginning in the second decade. Because patients who lack hearing and balance rely on vision for communication and mobility, the late…

SARS-CoV-2 Diagnostic Assay with Sensors of Immune Activation
TS-050296 — A sequencing-based diagnostic assay for SARS-CoV-2 with sensors of immune activation and the viral microbiota.
Diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection, which is responsible for COVID-19 disease, is typically performed by molecular analysis of upper respiratory sampling (e.g. nasal swab). Transcriptional-mediated amplification (TMA) and quantitative (real-time) polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) using one or more v…

An improved base editor (iABE-NG) for correcting genetic diseases such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy
TS-049505 — An engineered base editor (iABE-NG) that uses an SpCas9 variant, a shortened adenine deaminase domain with eliminated RNA off-target activity, and an intein split for packaging into an adeno-associated virus (AAV), resulting in gene mutation correction.
There are thousands of monogenic diseases that are lacking effective therapeutic treatments. The main bottleneck in developing effective treatment is the ability to effectively edit gene while controlling for the myriad of off-target effects that come with targeting the genome. Duchenne Muscular D…

A Novel Vaccine for Listeriosis Infection
TS-049471 — Listeriosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacterial pathogen Listeria monocytogenes. Although the average number of cases is moderate in the United States (1600-2500/year), listeriosis is a significant health concern due to its exceptionally high fatality rate. Indeed, listeriosis is the …
