  1. Novel Nanosecond Laser and Ultrasound to Selectively Treat Eye Blood Vessels

    SBC: Photosonox LLC            Topic: NEI

    ABSTRACT / PROJECT SUMMARY Wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the developed world. Anti-VEGF therapy is currently the gold standard for wet AMD treatment. However, up to 50% of patients in the long term have a suboptimal response to anti-VEGF therapy. A better alternative method for treatment of AMD is urgently needed. We have recently inve ...

  5. Cerenkov Multi-Spectral Imaging (CMSI) for Adaptation and Real-Time Imaging in Radiotherapy

    SBC: Endectra LLC            Topic: 102

    PROJECT SUMMARY Understanding of tumor molecular characteristics during a course of radiotherapy (RT) treatment is crucial to assess the efficacy of the treatment and adapt radiation dosage to optimize outcomes. Unfortunately, this cannot be routinely achieved by current diagnostic nuclear imaging modalities due to complex logistics and prohibitive costs. Alternatively, Cerenkov Emission (CE) is a ...

  7. Development of a New Treatment for Diabetic Wounds

    SBC: NUTRIWYO LLC            Topic: NIDDK

    Abstract: Non-healing wounds affect ~25% of people with diabetes and represent a primary cause of amputation of lower limbs, which is an enormous clinical problem and a substantial economic burden. Given the lack of approved agents that effectively aid in the healing of diabetic wounds, a major need exists for developing novel pharmacological agents for treating diabetic wounds. Chronic diabetic w ...

  8. Photo-mediated ultrasound therapy for treatment of cutaneous vascular malformations

    SBC: Photosonox LLC            Topic: NIBIB

    ABSTRACT: Cutaneous vascular malformations (CVM), such as port wine stain (PWS) which occurs in 0.3–0.5% of newborns, are often a cause of great concern to patients for both medical and cosmetic reasons. Laser irradiation with flashlamp-pumped pulsed dye lasers, i.e. photothermolysis therapy (PTT), is currently the gold standard treatment for PWS. Most patients with PWS, however, fail to clear c ...
