  1. AAV2-ASPA-Based Metabolic Intervention for Alzheimer's Disease

    SBC: ASKLEPIOS BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: NIA

    Abstract We propose to initiate preclinical development of a gene therapeutic targeted to Alzheimer's Disease. The World Health Organization's and Alzheimer's Disease International's report on Dementia (2012) recognizes that the global burden of AlzheimerDisease is forecast to worsen significantly with prevalence predicted to double every 20 years. Interventions that could prov ...

  2. Accurate Prostate Cancer Diagnosis for Active Surveillance Patients Using a Novel

    SBC: ProDevice Medical Supplies and Equipment LLC            Topic: NCI

    Project Abstract Active surveillance (AS) is becoming more accepted as a reasonable treatment option for men with low-risk prostate cancer (i.e. Gleason score 6, clinical stage T2a, PSA lt 10). Many AS protocols at major institutions call for a prostate saturation biopsy after initial diagnosis to confirm that the patient has no areas of higher-risk prostate cancer. For most patients who underwent ...

  3. A daily client check-in system for outpatient substance abuse treatment

    SBC: COG ANALYTICS, LLC            Topic: NIDA

    Abstract Alcohol and illicit drug use remain highly prevalent in the US, and epidemiological surveillance surveys estimate that over 20.6 million individuals (~ 8% of the US population) meet standard diagnostic thresholds for substance use disorders (SAMHSA, 2011). Outpatient substance abuse treatment is the predominate method of treatment in the US for SUDs, typically involving intermittent cont ...

  4. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Missile defense takes place in an uncertain and dynamic environment, so multi-sensor fusion must be employed to aggregate and merge disparate data from the battlefield. However, the fusion process is hindered by the vast amount of uncertainty in operational contexts, such as imprecise measurements and varying environmental conditions. Various algorithms and fusion processes have been developed to ...

  5. A Doppler Simulator for Vascular Ultrasound Training

    SBC: Sheehan Medical LLC            Topic: NIBIB

    We will develop and test a simulator of diagnostic vascular ultrasound for use in medical education and professional certification. The simulator will include not only two-dimensional (2D) images but also Doppler spectral waveforms to simulate duplex ultrasound scanning. The rationale is that education in diagnostic ultrasound has traditionally been based on an extended duration of clinical exposu ...

  6. Advanced Assessment to Accelerate Diagnostic Skill Acquisition

    SBC: Parallel Consulting, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current approaches to medical education produce new physicians with insufficient clinical competency to practice effectively with limited supervision, which has serious implications for patient outcomes during hospitaloff hours. Up to 70% of patients admitted to a hospital are admitted on nights or weekends, when staffing is low and residents may be in charge o ...

  7. Advanced Bicycle Helmet Technology for Prevention of Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: APEX BIOMEDICAL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: 105

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Traumatic brain injury TBI is an acquired neurological disorder that can cause long lasting disability with limited treatment options Therefore preventative strategies must be emphasized in high risk activities to reduce the individual and societal burden of this pervasive injury Bicycle activities account for of all sports related TBI with ...

  8. Advanced Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Strained Layer Superlattice Detectors on Digital-Pixel Readout Integrated Circuits

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA12T003

    We propose to combine QmagiQ's strained layer superlattice (SLS) sensor technology with MIT Lincoln Laboratory's novel digital pixel readout integrated circuit (DROIC) to realize an advanced longwave infrared digital focal plane array (DFPA) with high quantum efficiency, dynamic range, and operating temperature. In Phase I, we developed the basic SLS DFPA and demonstrated its extraordina ...

  9. A FAP-Activated Proteasome Inhibitor for Killing Solid Tumors

    SBC: ARISAPH PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: 102

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Cancer is the second leading cause of death after heart disease in the US Chemotherapy is a mainstay of treatment after surgical removal of tumors but the balance of clinical benefit versus disabling or life threatening side effects is often uncertain Genotyping of cancers to identify mutated oncogenes has enabled an era of targeted therapy Drugs targeting ...

  10. A Millimeter-wave Tunable Cavity for Ultra-sensitive Solids and Liquids DNP-NMR at Low Budget

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: NIA

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NMR is probably the most powerful and widely used analytical technique for structure determination and function elucidation of molecules of all types, but it suffers from low sensitivity, particularly for insoluble biological macromolecules. Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) with Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) has recently demonstrated S/N gains exceeding t ...
