Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Abstract Spinal deformities occur in the young (adolescents) and the elderly. In childhood scoliosis and Scheuermann's kyphosis are two relatively common conditions that progress with growth. Current treatment paradigmsfor these deformities include… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Symptoms of memory loss, such as those indicative of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), can serve as precursors to more insidious, progressive forms of dementia, particularly Alzheimer's disease (AD). Memory loss is a serious and unsettling problem for those… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In orthopedic surgery, surgeons have to handle not only bone but also the surrounding soft tissue, including muscle, fascia, tendon, ligament and capsule. Successful handling of these tissues is often the key to high reproducibility, good soft tissue healing,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NIS, the sodium iodide symporter, mediates the uptake and concentration of iodide in the thyroid gland, providing the basis for diagnostic thyroid radioimaging and radioiodine therapy, which are used routinely in clinical and veterinary practice. When the NIS… more
Abstract:The current effort has been on-going, specifically to address the needs as described in N122-132, Advanced Ballistic Shielding for Crew Served Weapons Stations. The objective of the topic is to develop a series of reconfigurable and non-reconfigurable advanced ballistic shields for crew served… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite remarkable advances in cancer detection and treatment, the disease continues to be a leading cause of mortality in the US accounting for 23% of all deaths in 2011. Cancer of the breast and prostate are by far the most common forms diagnosed in US women… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a highly and increasingly prevalent disorder characterized by incomplete reversible airflow limitations. It is presently the third leading cause of death in the US, with over 13 million peopl suffering from the… more
Abstract:? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Polycystic kidney diseases (PKD) are a group of inherited disorders characterized by progressive cyst development in the kidney resulting in bilateral renal enlargement and often end stage renal disease (ESRD). The most common form of PKD, autosomal… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Swine models of human disease will become increasingly important for the development of relevant, preclinical therapeutics. However, the creation of swine congenital disease models is plagued by inefficiencies related to animal development and reproduction. The… more
Abstract:Army rotorcrafts are required to operate in extreme situations such as loss of lubrication to the drive systems. Current designs allow for 30 minutes of operation at 50% power, but the Army has a need to improve aircraft survivability beyond this threshold. Phygen Coatings has developed a unique,… more
Abstract:Fire Solutions LLC will demonstrate a vehicle crew fire protection system that utilizes both water mist and aqueous foam subsystems in a Phase I effort utilizing a steel simulated"Humvee"built by Naval Air Warfare Center, China Lake. The proposed crew fire protection system will function… more
Abstract:Operational consoles and workstations for combat ships and submarines need to become more efficient in their utilizations as vessel crew staffing decreases, while mission requirements continue to expand. Multiple missions maximizing human and machine resources continue to increase. A method is… more
Abstract:Intermittent or Periodic Fasting have been reported to promote lifespan extension and provide a range of protective effects, including neural stem cell generation in the nervous system and protection against chemotherapy side effects or cancer progression.USC researchers have described the role of… more
Abstract:Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is an increasing challenge for the treatment of TB. Currently existing drugs for the treatment of MDR TB are only moderately potent, show restrictions with absorption or oral bioavailability, and have toxicity profiles that make patient management difficult.… more
Abstract:The objective of this fast-track SBIR Application is to advance commercialization efforts for IPdR (5-iodo-2pyrimidinone-2'-deoxyribose), a prod rug of the radiosensitizer IUdR (5-iodo-2'-deoxyuridine). In the Phase I SBIR, we will determine the scientific merit, feasibility and… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
