  1. Clinical-scale Production of Osteoprogenitor Cells

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Due to morbidity and limited amounts of material, alternatives to autologous grafts for bone repair are desirable. Cells within the bone marrow are known to possess bone regenerative capacity, but they are limited in number. Increasing these osteoprogenitor cell populations through the use of ex vivo expansion technologies and combining these cells with a matri ...

  2. Clinical Human Cell Production System for Broad Use

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The therapeutic potential of patient-specific cultured cells continues to rapidly grow for a range of medical needs, such as regenerative repair of damaged tissue, cancer, and infectious diseases. As a result, the motivation to commercialize patient-specific "cell products" is increasing rapidly as well. A large unmet need exists for the development of reliable clinical and commercial ceil manufac ...

  3. Transdermal Patch for Pulsatile Nicotine Delivery

    SBC: ADVANCED SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current nicotine delivery patches rely on the passive diffusion of nicotine through the skin and into the fluid that surrounds the cells beneath the skin (interstitial fluid). From there, the nicotine diffuses into the capillary network, enters the blood stream, and is delivered to the brain. The nicotine is contained in a textile fiber material within the p ...

  4. A Novel Needle-based X-ray System

    SBC: ADVANCED X-RAY TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The main objective of this project is to design, fabricate and experimentally research the application of capillary x-ray optics as a means of elevating the dose rate of the radiation produced by a needle-based x-ray system. The goal is to reach the dose rate of 10 Gy/hour at a distance 5 mm from the pseudo-target. The other objective is to apply capillary ...

  5. Transdermal Hydromorphone for Acute and Chronic Pain

    SBC: Altea Therapeutics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Founded in 1998, Altea Therapeutics is developing its PassPort(tm) system to deliver proteins and peptides, small-molecule drugs, genes and vaccines from a skin patch, eliminating the need for invasive needle injection. This breakthrough technology, currently undergoing Phase 1 clinical trials for basal insulin delivery, revolutionizes the way in which medicine ...

  6. Non-Invasive Drug Delivery by Thermal Microporation

    SBC: Altea Therapeutics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Founded in 1998, Altea Therapeutics is developing its PassPort(tm) transdermal drug delivery system to deliver proteins and peptides, small-molecule drugs, genes and vaccines from a skin patch, eliminating the need for invasive needle injection. This breakthrough technology, currently undergoing Phase 1 clinical trials for transdermal delivery of insulin and ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. A System for Lengthening Contraction Training of Muscle

    SBC: BIO LOGIC ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Skeletal muscle atrophy and weakness affects nearly all of the nation's elderly and often leads to frailty, immobility, falls, fractures, and institutionalization. Numerous studies have shown that weight training involving Shortening Contraction Training (SCT) protocols can slow or even reverse this decline. Unfortunately, traditional SCT protocols commonly hav ...
