TWO MAIN AREAS MUST BE STUDIED TO DEVELOP A SUITABLE SMALL DIAMETER VASCULAR GRAFT: IMPROVEMENT IN MATERIAL BLOOD COMPATIBILITY AND DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPLIANT GRAFT WHICH MATCHES THAT OF THE NATURAL VESSEL.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Donald e. gregonis , DIRECTOR
Award Amount: $40,000.00
Abstract:
Two main areas must be studied to develop a suitable small diameter vascular graft: improvement in material blood compatibility and development of a compliant graft which matches that of the natural vessel. this phase i sbir proposal will only address the blood compatibility question and will… More

URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH URINARY DRAINAGE CATHETERS ARE A SIGNIFICANT CLINICAL PROBLEM RESULTING IN A PROLONGED HOSPITAL STAY AND AN INCREASED MORTALITY RISK.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Dennis l. coleman , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Urinary tract infections associated with urinary drainage catheters are a significant clinical problem resulting in a prolonged hospital stay and an increased mortality risk. this proposal addresses a feasibility study to determine if surface modification of the catheter will inhibit bacterial… More

A TREATMENT OF HYDROPHILIC POLY(HYDROXYETHYL METHACRYLATE) CONTACT LENSES TO MINIMIZE IRREVERSIBLE PROTEIN ADSORPTION WILL BE TESTED.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Donald e. gregonis , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
A treatment of hydrophilic poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) contact lenses to minimize irreversible protein adsorption will be tested. protein adsorption on lenses not only leads to clouding and opacities, but also induces what appears to be an immune response in the wearer. this response is observed… More

SINCE ANTIGENS RELEASED FROM TUMOR CELLS CAN THWART THE HOST'S IMMUNE REACTIVITY AGAINST IMMUNOGENIC TUMORS IN FAVOR OF TUMOR GROWTH, THE PRESENT WORK PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN EXTRACORPOREAL SYSTEM TO REMOVE THE TUMOR ANTIGEN AS WELL AS THE BOUND ANTIGEN

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Donald e. gregonis , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Since antigens released from tumor cells can thwart the host's immune reactivity against immunogenic tumors in favor of tumor growth, the present work proposes to develop an extracorporeal system to remove the tumor antigen as well as the bound antigen (antigen-antibody complex) from the patient's… More

A NEED EXISTS FOR CHEAP, SIMPLE, SENSITIVE, AND RAPID NONISOTOPIC IMMUNOASSAYS FOR THE DETECTION OF PATHOGENIC VIRUSES, BACTERIA, AND CELLS.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard a. van wagenen , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
A need exists for cheap, simple, sensitive, and rapid nonisotopic immunoassays for the detection of pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and cells. development of an interfacial light-scattering immunoassay (isi) is proposed. surface immobilized antibodies provide target organism specificity while total… More

Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard A. Van Wagenen , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $220,000.00
Abstract:
This project addresses the development and evaluation of a prototype laser raman scattering gas sensor. potential application areas are: blood po2/pco2 via suitable sampling catheter and noninvasive monitoring of respiration, anesthesia delivery, lung function, and cardiac output. mass spec, while… More

MINIATURIZED RAMAN CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard a van wagenen
Award Amount: $49,000.00
Abstract:
A need exists to quantitate anesthetic and respiratory gases(o2, co2, n2) in the operating room. previous work has shown that raman light scattering can be successfully utilized for molecular gas analysis. the raman signal for each gas can be separated from the laser beam rayleigh scatter via filter… More
