  1. Silver coatings to combat catheter associated infections

    SBC: ACRYMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Abstract Indwelling catheterization is a leading cause of nosocomial infections that present an enormous drain of health care funding in the US. Clinical infections associated with urinary catheterization have been estimated to add more than $1000 to patient care. Those that occur with central venous catheterization escalate the cost to between $35,000 and $50, ...

  2. High-throughput Prediction of Compound Tissue Distribution

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of the proposed research is to develop tools for the prediction of the distribution of drug compounds in the human body. There is currently no experimental high throughput screening (HTS) method for determining compound tissue distribution. A drug compound's propensity to be taken up by different tissues and organs affects whether it will reach its acti ...

  3. Open, Flexible Platform for CAM Adherence Monitoring and Mind-Body Investigations

    SBC: AMES TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There are very few proven biological markers to support complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) adherence investigations. Most tools currently available to CAM investigators are oriented to bio-feedback techniques and of little proven efficacy for use in quantitative research investigations. To support their work, CAM investigators need tools and technolog ...

  4. Development Of A Pulsed Light Emitting Diode Dental Photocuring System

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): LED based curing lights are beginning to replace conventional halogen lamps as the first choice for dental photo-curing applications. The target of this proposal is to develop a new generation LED dental curing light. It will be the first curing light that is optimized according to the kinetic response of the dental composite, which plays a key role in determin ...

  5. Home Sensor Date Fusion to Support Aging in Place

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aging of the U.S. population presents many challenges. The existing paradigm of care will not allocate resources efficiently as the size of the population requiring home care assistance grows. Our objective is to enhance elder independence by providing both better and more timely predictive health-status assessments and direct, real-time, recommendations an ...

  6. Improved Dehydration Process for Pharmaceutical Synthesis

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most pharmaceutical synthesis involve condensation or dehydration reactions at some point in the process that generates water as a by-product. This water must be removed since (1) water is often not a desirable component of the finished product, (2) water limits conversion to final product, and (3) water generated slows the reaction rate. Many Pharmaceuticals h ...

  7. Tobacco World: Interactive Tobacco Education for Teens

    SBC: DESCHUTES RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed project will develop an interactive computer-based program for tobacco prevention aimed at middle school students. The CD-ROM is designed to be an adjunct to the existing health education curriculum provided for 6th through 8th grades. The CD-ROM is based upon our Phase I prototype program entitled Tobacco World in which students are presented wit ...

  8. Conductivity Analysis for Improved High-Resolution EEG

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Electroencephalography (EEG) is an indispensable neurological diagnostic tool in terms of fast time scale, portability, and cost efficiency. Improved spatial resolution of EEG measures would greatly benefit clinical and research applications, including stroke, epilepsy, and cognitive studies. Dense-array EEG recordings can be used to localize cortical function ...

  9. VLSI for Ambulatory EEG Epilepsy Monitoring

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This research will create a small and inexpensive multichannel physiological data acquisition system. It will allow dense array (128 or 256 channel) EEG systems to be made at a similar cost as conventional (19 or 32 channels) systems, and it will allow conventional systems to become very compact and inexpensive. The initial implementation will be an ambulatory ...

  10. Traps for Surveillance and Suppression of Triatomine Vectors of Chagas Disease

    SBC: IPM Development Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chagas disease, vectored by triatomine kissing bugs is the most serious parasitic disease of Latin America. The World Bank has calculated an annual loss due to Chagas disease to the endemic countries of Latin America equivalent to over US$6.5 billion per year. Control of Chagas disease is now given high priority by Latin American governments. The primary future ...
