  1. Quantitative C-arm Fluoroscopy- Prostate Brachytherapy

    SBC: BURDETTE MEDICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prostate cancer continues to be a significant health problem, both domestically and worldwide. Numerous studies have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of transperineal prostate brachytherapy in the therapy of prostate cancer. The success of brachytherapy chiefly depends on our ability to intra-operatively tailor the radiation dose to the patient's individual ...

  2. Molecular Probes for Platelet Heparanase-Digested

    SBC: International Medicine and Biomedical Research            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The project proposed by Agenta Biotechnologies, Inc. will produce diagnostic molecular tools to identify where destructive changes in skin, kidney, heart, eyes, bones, and other organs have occurred. These molecular probes do not exist and would be useful in several medical disciplines. The designed molecular probes may also have potential therapeutic value.

  3. Disposable sensor for on-line measure of urea clearance in effluent dialysate

    SBC: AURA NANOTECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A key need for urea monitoring is a simple and disposable device that can be easily integrated with existing hemodialysis (HD) technology. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of accurate on-line urea clearance monitoring using nanoengineered colorimetric films deposited directly on the inside surface of short lengths of standard dialysis tubing. T ...

  4. Peptide drugs against influenza virus

    SBC: Autoimmune Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Influenza virus is one of the most important human pathogens accounting for widespread morbidity and mortality. Influenza virus is currently classified as a NIAID Biodefense Category C priority pathogen, a status that may be upgraded due to the recent emergence of a highly virulent strain of avian influenza virus in Thailand, Vietnam, North Korea and other Asi ...

  5. Development of molecular diagnostic assays for systemic autoimmune diseases

    SBC: Autoimmune Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We aim to produce a significantly improved diagnostic system for autoimmune, rheumatologic disease. Similarities between autoimmune diseases and HIV-induced diseases led us to look for a retrovirus involved in autoimmune disease. We found a retrovirus, human intracisternal A-type particle (HIAP), in Sjogren's syndrome patients. Subsequently we found evidence in ...

  6. Moderation training application for drinkers

    SBC: BEHAVIOR THERAPY ASSOCIATES, LLP            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goals of this project are to develop, evaluate, and disseminate an Internet (web) application, Moderate Drinking (MD). MD will use a behavioral self-control training (BSCT) protocol that helps drinkers learn skills to either moderate their drinking or to abstain. The target population is members of the self-help organization, Moderation Management (MM) and ...

  7. A FPGA-based Real-Time Volume Rendering System

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project involves the research and development of a real-time FPGA-based volume rendering system. Medical radiologists face a data overload crisis that is getting worse with each year. This crisis is caused by ongoing advances in diagnostic imaging technologies (i.e. CT, MR and ultrasound) that produce more images ...

  8. Rapid assessment of vascular grafts patency

    SBC: BIOMEDICAL ACOUSTICS RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this project is the introduction of "smart stethoscope" technology to immediately, accurately, safely, easily and inexpensively detect blood vessel compromise using computerized analysis of vascular sounds. The specific goal of this project is to develop a device for surveillance of vascular bypass grafts, and renal hemodialysis acces ...

  9. Decoy receptor 3 and liver cirrhosis

    SBC: BIOPOWERTECH            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Liver cirrhosis is a chronic and degenerative disease that can lead to inability of the liver to perform its biochemical function thus severely affecting the quality of patients' life. Currently, liver biopsy is the gold standard in determining the presence of liver cirrhosis. However, liver biopsy is both invasive and costly, with complications. Also, this pro ...

  10. A therapeutic potential of soluble decoy receptor 3 in sepsis

    SBC: BIOPOWERTECH            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sepsis a serious life-threatening condition resulting from a harmful inflammatory reaction of the body due to bacterial infection. The mortality rate of sepsis remains high in intensive care units around the world but therapeutic interventions have been largely unsuccessful. Clearly, there is a great need for inventing efficacious therapeutic drugs to treat pa ...
