The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) serves as a repository of materiel, including medical countermeasures (MCMs), that would be used to support the national health security response to a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) incident, either natural or terrorism-related. To support and advance the SNS, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) manages targeted investigatory research portfolios, such as Countermeasures Against Chemical Terrorism (CounterACT) for chemical agents, ...

In recent decades it has become increasingly clear that induction of autophagy plays an important role in the development of treatment resistance and dormancy in many cancer types. Unfortunately, chloroquine (CQ) and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), two autophagy inhibitors in clinical trials, suffer from poor pharmacokinetics and high toxicity at therapeutic dosages. This has prompted intense interest in the development of targeted autophagy inhibitors to re-sensitize disease to treatment with minimal...

In 2008, we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, this topic has received increasing attention, and many scientists have entered the field. Our knowledge base and relevant new technologies have also been expanding. Thus, it is important to formulate on a regular basis updated guidelines for monitoring autophagy in different organisms. Despite numerous reviews, there continues to be confusion regarding acceptable methods to evaluate autophagy, ...

Abstract Solid-phase resins functionalized with poly-deoxythymidine (dT) oligos facilitate purification of poly-adenylated molecules from solution through high affinity, high selectivity base-pairing interactions. These resins are commonly used to purify messenger RNA (mRNA) from complex biological mixtures as well as mRNA-protein fusion molecules for mRNA Display selections. Historically, dT-conjugated cellulose was the primary resin for poly-dA purification, but its scarcity has prompted the d...

Autophagy can protect cancer cells from acute starvation and enhance resistance to chemotherapy. Previously, we reported that autophagy plays a critical role in the survival of dormant, drug resistant ovarian cancer cells using human xenograft models and correlated the up-regulation of autophagy and DIRAS3 expression in clinical samples obtained during “second look” operations. DIRAS3 is an imprinted tumor suppressor gene that encodes a 26 kD GTPase with homology to RAS that inhibits cancer cell...

Abstract Medical devices and technologies play a vital role in improving outcomes of treatment, disease prevention and quality of healthcare. These technologies have applications in improving healthcare delivery as well as patient outcomes and are utilized for many disease states including diagnosis, clinical monitoring, treatment and prevention. Major goals are to improve functioning of organs and tissues, drug design and development, expanding viability and efficacy of drugs, and development o...
