  3. Diagnostic for Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    SBC: APELIOTUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Apeliotus Technologies proposes to develop a commercial diagnostic for the early detection of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). It relies on a functional test of dark adaptation kinetics (the transition from being light-adapted to being dark-adapted) that has been shown in previous work to detect the onset of ARMD at least four years before it is clinic ...

  4. Flavonoid Compounds for the Prevention of Osteoporosis

    SBC: Aptotec, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 10 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have osteoporosis, a disease that results in over 1.5 million bone fractures a year. It is now known that the accumulation of fat cells (adipocytes) in bone marrow is a major factor contributing to age-related bone loss. Women with osteoporosis have higher numbers of marrow adipocytes than those wome ...

  5. Neural cell based assays derived from human ES cells

    SBC: Aruna Biomedical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neurons send instructions to other cells in the form of electrical signals that allow movement, sensation, memory, learning and countless other activities that are taken for granted in daily life. Loss of neural cell function results from traumatic injuries such as gunshots wounds or car accidents and from neurodegenerative diseases. The scale of this health p ...

  6. Avian transgenesis via site-directed integration

    SBC: AviGenics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase II SBIR project describes a novel method to create transgenic poultry that will produce biopharmaceutical proteins in their eggs. Chickens are able to produce large amounts of protein in their eggs at relatively low cost. We seek to harness this capability to synthesize pharmaceutical proteins, such as humanized monoclonal antibodies, that are neede ...

  7. Development of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Gene Therapeutic as Treatment for COPD

    SBC: Generx+, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. and is associated with an imbalance in proteolytic activity in the lungs. Treatment is largely aimed at symptom remediation using bronchodilators and corticosteroids, but these do not treat the underlying disease process. We are developing a gene-based therapy to treat ...

    SBIR Phase I 2005 Department of Health and Human Services
  8. Swept Laser Source for Optical Coherence Tomography

    SBC: MICRON OPTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Building on the success of Phase l work, this Phase ll program proposes to advance a new generation of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology based on the swept source (SS) Fourier-domain technique. The resultant bio-medical imaging system from this work, having the combined advantages in higher image quality and speed, will potentially replace the ex ...

    SBIR Phase II 2005 Department of Health and Human Services
  9. Economic spectroscopic evaluation of Cervical Cancer

    SBC: GUIDED THERAPEUTICS            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cervical Cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women worldwide and the leading cause of cancer related mortality in women in developing countries. Early detection and diagnosis can saves lives and reduce the burden on the national healthcare system. We have built a non-invasive research-prototype point-of-care device to detect early cancerous con ...

    SBIR Phase II 2005 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. Virtual Reality Treatment of PTSD and Substance Abuse

    SBC: VIRTUALLY BETTER INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this STTR project is to develop and test a new treatment for PTSD that will use Virtual Reality Technology to simulate the traumatic event. Phase I will be directed toward developing virtual environments essential to the treatment of PTSD following terrorist incidents or disasters and conducting a preliminary study of feasibility. An overarc ...
