  5. Integrin Targeted Therapy for the Treatment of Ovarian Cancer

    SBC: BIOSPEECH INC            Topic: NIDA

    Summary Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is believed to be a widespread, under-diagnosed condition associated with detrimental health problems, at a high cost to society. The current gold standard for diagnosis of SDB is a time- consuming, expensive, and obtrusive (requiring many attached wires) sleep study, or polysomnography (PSG). The immediate objective of the proposed research is to develop a ...
