Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00

NUCLEIC ACID HYBRIDIZATION (NAH), AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY RESEARCH TOOL, HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A MAJOR DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Floyd taub , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Nucleic acid hybridization (nah), an extremely important molecular biology research tool, has the potential to be a major diagnostic procedure. however, the current technique requires the use of expensive, hazardous, and time-consumingmethods based on radioactive materials. furthermore, nah tests… More

RAPID DIAGNOSIS OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
New dna diagnostic tests will permit the rapid, accurate, sensitive, and inexpensive diagnosis of a wide variety of diseases without growth, expression of specific cell func- tion, or production of specific proteins by the agent. fur-thermore, positive identification is independent of antigen-ic… More

Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Floyd Taub , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
Human papillomaviruses (hpv) are associated with and/or cause a variety of human diseases, ranging from benign wartsto fatal carcinoma of the cervix. different hpv types causedifferent diseases. certain ones may predict or even cause the progression of benign lesions to cancer. however, due to the… More

PDGF EXPRESSION IN PROLIFERATIVE RETINOPATHIES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $46,000.00
Abstract:
Platelet-derived growth factor (pdgf) may stimulate proliferation of cells which lead to the development of various proliferative retinopathies. furthermore, pdgf may be especially important in regulating the regrowth of membranes following initial therapeutic surgery. thus, it has been hypothesized… More

Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (aids) is a clinical syndrome resulting from the interaction of a wide variety ofpathogens with the immune system. the classic progression is from hiv exposure to seroconversion to aids-related complex (arc) to aids. accurate diagnosis of pathogens other than hiv… More
