  1. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...

  2. Novel Membrane-Based Portable Oxygen Concentrator

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

    There is an increasing awareness about the problems associated with blood transfusions. One concernbacterial contamination of blood bags. If contaminated blood is transfused, the person receiving thebecoming sick and dying. Current standards require that blood be visually inspected before leaving tblood has an abnormal appearance, it is not used. This visual quality check is subject to human judgt ...

  3. Injectable Microbeads for Delivery of Buprenorphine

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

    The objective of this research program is to demonstrate the feasibility of a new controlled-releasuse in an injectable formulation of buprenorphine to improve treatment of opioid dependence. The keytechnology is the use of bioerodible microporous microbeads with a controllable structure that allowas well as easily varied release rates and durations of release. These controlled-release microbeadsi ...

  4. Choice Card: A Model for Health Plan Selection

    SBC: Benova            Topic: N/A

    We will develop and test a model by which health plan report card information is disseminatedto publicly-sponsored consumers to use in selecting health care systems/plans. The model willincorporate a decision-making paradigm enabling Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries to integratepersonal values/preferences, medical histories, etc. with features of health plans. Model developmentwill use both pri ...

  5. Reality Based Multisystem Balance Assessment in the Aged

    SBC: Brookside Research & Development            Topic: N/A

    This project addresses the need for sensitive and predictive measures that can identify elderlypersons at risk for falling, thereby preventing some of the human and societal costs of devastatinginjuries. Dynamic balance assessment methods will be combined with virtual-reality techniques toproduce an innovative technology for evaluating balance in simulated real-world environments. Presenttechnique ...

  7. NOVEL MICROWAVE HYPERTHERMIA SYSTEM FOR PROSTATE CANCER

    SBC: Daat Research            Topic: N/A

    AS PROSTATE CANCER HAS RECENTLY BECOME THE MOST WIDELY DIAGNOSED FORM OF CANCER IN UNITED STATES' MALES, CLINICIANS ARE EXPECTED TO SEEK MORE EFFECTIVE TREATMENT MODALITIES. ONE OF THESE MAY BE HYPERTHERMIA AS AN ADJUNCT TO RADIATION AND CHEMOTHERAPY. THE MAIN LIMITATION TO THIS MODE OF THERAPY HAS BEEN THE LACK OF EFFECTIVE HEATING EQUIPMENT FOR THE PROSTATIC REGION. A NOVEL TWO-APPLICATOR MICROW ...

  8. Computer Software for Assessment of Stenosis Severity

    SBC: Daat Research            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a computer program which will be used as an integral part of intravascular ultrasonic units for assessing the severity of arterial lesions. The software will use the digitized vessel geometry data directly from the units to produce a quantitative assessment of stenosis severity using fluid dynamics, stress analysis methods, and catheter derived flow and pressure data. The assessmen ...

  9. Thrombus Imaging with Radiolabeled Peptides

    SBC: Diatech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and resultant pulmonary emboli (PE) represent significant morbidity and mortality in the U. S. A. Existing detection modalities such as contrast venography, ultrasound, and non-specific radiopharmaceuticals do not exhibit the sensitivity or specificity in all areas of interest to reliably detect DVT or PE. A Tc-99m radiolabeled thrombus-binding peptide would be ideally s ...

  10. II 8 Receptor Antagonists for Imaging and Therapy

    SBC: Diatech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Interleukin-8 (IL-8), a newly characterized proinflammatory cytokine, is chemotactic for polymorphoneutrophils (PMNs). It produces several other agonist effects, including granule release of degradatproduction of oxygen-derived free radicals. These effects are mediated by specific high affinity (Kd(IL-8R), which are expressed in high numbers on the PMN membrane surface. Our overall objective in ti ...
