The goal of this Program Announcement is to solicit applications on lysosomal
storage disorders (LSDs) focused on improving CNS treatment outcomes,
enhancing the effectiveness of delivery and targeting of cells, enzymes, drugs
and genes into the brain, and developing novel therapeutic modalities, such as
implantable biocapsules and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)-based
devices. Lysosomal storage disorders constitute a group of recessive genetic
diseases resulting from cellular enzymatic deficiencies of acid hydrolases
that normally catalyze the metabolism of glycoproteins, glycolipids and other
macromolecules, or from defects in transporter proteins leading to pathogenic
accumulation of these substances in lysosomes. Treatment modalities for LSDs
are currently limited to bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and enzyme
replacement therapy (ERT). These approaches while providing significant
promise for treatment of the visceral manifestations of LSDs, do little to
address CNS pathologies for this group of disorders. Thus this announcement
specifically encourages the transition from basic studies in LSDs to
translational research for improved delivery of therapeutic cells, proteins,
genes, and small molecules across the blood-brain barrier.
