Zika DNA Vaccine
Technology Overview: A plasmid DNA vaccine thatencodes a secreted form of non-structural protein 1(secNS1). It is highly immunogenic and offers completesystemic protection from Zika in vaccinated mice. Thevaccine protects and completely eliminates ZIKA virus inpreclinical studies. We have modified the plasmid DNAvaccine to include a leader sequence...

ELISA-On-A-Stick: in vivo detection and measurement of biological materials
Market NeedIn order to understand the role of the immune system in pain, it is essential to monitor the concentration of localized pro-inflammatory cytokines in the spinal cord.Cytokines are the small proteins secreted from cells. They are indicators of the functional status of the human immune system and the biomarkers for many diseases.Certain p...

Treatment of atrial fibrillation associated with obesity using endothelin receptor antagonists
Atrial fibrosis prevention in obese and overweight patients Overweight patients are at increased risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial fibrosis. Treatment of this group with endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs) could reduce that risk and obviate the need for more invasive and expensive treatments for atrial fibrillation, such as ablation pr...

Annexin A2 as a novel diagnostic marker for serous ovarian cancer
Technology Background: We have recently shown that annexin A2 is highly expressed in 90% of serous ovarian cancers, which is the most common subtype and is actively involved in the process of ovarian cancer metastasis. Moreover, we have also shown that local upregulation of annexin A2 within the tumour is reflected in a systemic ~2.0-fold increase...

Polysaccharide Synthases - F and H
Non-cellulosic polysaccharides, including (1,3;1,4)-β-D-glucans, are key components of the cell walls in cereal grain tissues. These non-cellulosic polysaccharides constitute less than 10% of the overall weight of the grain; however they are important determinants of grain quality. (1,3;1,4)-β-D-glucans are important in the large-scale fe...

Gastric Cancer Detection Test
Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common cancer in the world and the second leading cause of cancer-related death. In Australia, the age standardised incident rate (ASR) is 9-10 per 100,000 people and over 11,000 deaths were recorded between 1996 and 2006. The current diagnostic strategy for GC is inadequate.The ability to detect early stage G...
