Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Gastrointestinal (GI) Syndrome is a primary complication of cancer treatments, associated with delivery of therapeutic doses of chemotherapy and radiation, and also constitutes a potentially lethal result of accidental ionizing radiation (IR) exposure. The… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There are high unmet medical needs in the limited biologic therapeutics for 1.0% of adults with rheumatoid arthritis [RA] associated with staggering 39.2 billion annual US health care and societal costs. These are dueto inadequate efficacy; patient's… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Phase I SBIR proposal is to provide improved therapies for the treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontal Disease is a chronic infectious disease of the oral cavity that effects about 35 % of the adult population in the United States, or… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop rapid-scanning optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy (OR-PAM), which is capable of label- free imaging of non-fluorescent optical absorbers. Optical absorption contrast is highly desirable for microvascular imaging and … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): One potential therapeutic approach to treat sickle cell disease (SCD) involves the administration of aryl aldehyde-containing small molecules that form Schiff base adducts with hemoglobin (HbS) and prevent sickling.

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.
