  2. VEHICLE AXLE DETECTOR BASED ON NON-CONTACT DETECTION

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PACIFIC-SIERRA RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SENSOR MODULE FOR COUNTING VEHICLE AXLES ON ROADWAYS. THIS SENSOR WOULD NOT REQUIRE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THE ROADBED, AND COULD BE SAFELY SETUP WITHOUT IMPEDING TRAFFIC EVEN TEMPORARILY. THE SENSOR WILL DETECT THE AXLES ON MULTIPLE LANE HIGHWAYS AND KEEP THE SEPARATE LANE COUNTS DISTINCT. THIS ROADWAY LAND AXLE DETECTOR (LAD) IS BASED ON EXISTING ...

  3. Room Temperature Instrument Sterilization Process

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a new process for sterilizing medical instruments at room temperature. Ourapproach will provide physicians and surgeons with compact equipment capable of sterilizing rigid andflexible endoscopes and other heat sensitive medical instruments in less than 30 minutes. The lack ofa suitable alternative to time-consuming ethylene oxide sterilization has led many physicians to the useof a ...

  4. Typing Human Cytochrome P450 Genes Using DNA Chips

    SBC: AFFYMETRIX            Topic: N/A

    We will develop DNA chips capable of detecting and characterizing mutations in the human CYP2D6 (cyP450 2D6) gene. These chips will be used to correlate drug metabolism phenotype with specific mutatinaturally in the human population. CYP2D6 mutations result in dramatic differences in drug efficacyof the Caucasian population and 2% of Asian populations. In Phase I will (1) design and synthesize Dco ...

  5. Detection of Mutations in Human P53, MSH2, MLH1 Genes

    SBC: AFFYMETRIX            Topic: N/A

    Our aim is to develop DNA chips which can detect and characterize mutations simultaneously in the psuppressor gene and the MSH2 and MLH1 mismatch repair genes. These chips will be used to correlate ttype of mutations in normal and tumor cells obtained from persons affected with hereditary and sporaIn Phase I, we will 1) design/synthesize DNA chips complementary to intron/exons 5 - 8 of the p53 ge1 ...

  6. LIPOSOMES FOR DELIVERY OF DRUGS TO HAIR-FOLLICLE CELLS

    SBC: ANTICANCER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED TO STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH FOR VARIOUS CONDITIONS OF ALOPECIA. IT IS ASSERTED THAT TO ACHIEVE HAIR GROWTH STIMULATION, BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE COMPOUNDS MUST BE DELIVERED INSIDE HAIR FOLLICLE CELLS, AND THAT THE OPTIMAL WAY TO IDENTIFY ACTIVE COMPOUNDS AND METHODS OF THEIR DELIVERY IS TO USE AN IN VITRO SYSTEM. ACTIVE COMPOUNDS IN PRINCIPLE COULD BE ALSO USED TO CAUSE DESIRED IN HAIR COL ...

  7. Measurement of Surface Characteristics for Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    This projects's objective is to design and evaluate a surface accessibility measurement device that can quantitatively measure characteristics of a surface that correlate with its degree of accessibility to wheelchair users. Four surface accessibility measurement devices will be designed, fabricated and tested. Existing surface measurement devices, including penetrometers, will also be evaluated. ...

  9. IN VITRO DRUG SENSITIVITY TESTING OF MARROW METASTASES

    SBC: BIS LABORATORIES            Topic: N/A

    HUMAN TUMOR CLONOGENIC ASSAYS (HTCA'S) ARE USED TO TEST TUMOR SPECIMENT IN VITRO AGAINST CHEMOTHERAPEUTIC DRUGS. CURRENTLY, USE OF HTCA'S IS LIMITED TO TUMOR SPECIMENS OBTAINED AT DIAGNOSIS OR AT OVERT RELAPSE. AN IDEAL SITUATION WOULD BE TO TEST METASTATIC CELLS PRIOR TO RELAPSE BEFORE DRUG RESISTANCE IS A FACTOR. THIS SITUATION IS FEASIBLE BY OBTAINING SMALL NUMBERS OF TUMOR CELLS FROM THE BONE ...

  10. Directional Microphone Array for Hearing Aids

    SBC: CARDINAL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N/A

    The long term objective of this research is to improve hearing aids in environments with noiseand reverberation. The approach is to develop a hearing aid accessory which makes traditional hearingaids much more sensitive to sounds coming from the look direction than to sounds coming from the sideand rear. A 3-microphone array with signal processing to produce a directional sensitivity in the lookdi ...
