  1. Gene Expression and Diagnosis of Autoimmune Disease

    SBC: ARTHROCHIP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by the applicant): Autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, type I diabetes, and multiple sclerosis, are thought to arise from abnormalities of innate or adaptive immune responses. Autoimmune diseases are often difficult to diagnose, as the symptoms can be typical of other conditions and quite vague, such as musculoskeletal complaints ...

  2. Gene Expression and Diagnosis of Diabetes

    SBC: ARTHROCHIP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Autoimmune diseases are difficult to diagnose, as the symptoms can be typical of other conditions and quite vague. No currently available blood test accurately excludes or includes the possibility of an autoimmune disease in a subject, and a battery of tests and a period of observation are usually required. A single test that could readily distinguish between ...

  3. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

  4. Folate Targeted Delivery of a CDKI

    SBC: ENDOCYTE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecological malignancy and is the fourth leading cause of cancer mortality in women. Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecological malignancy and is the fourth leading cause of cancer mortality in women. Nationwide 23,400 new cases will be diagnosed in 2002 and 13,900 women will die of ovarian cancer. Only 25% ...

  6. Targeted Oncolytic VSV as a Prostate Cancer Therapy

    SBC: Oncternal Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer mortality. Unfortunately there is no cure by standard medical treatment. Therefore, novel treatments for this devastating, common disease are desperately needed. Recent progress in the development of targeted oncolytic viral vectors offer a new strat ...

  7. Developing VSV cytolytics against High-Grade CNS gliomas

    SBC: Oncternal Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite continued improvements in diagnosis, surgical techniques, and radiation protocols, the available treatments for high-grade malignant glioma are grossly inadequate. The median survival time for most patients with high-grade gliomas is on the order of months. Metastatic tumors with a tropism for the CNS such as lung and breast pose an even greater problem ...

  8. Next Generation Hall effect Thruster Concepts

    SBC: Kaufman & Robinson, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this proposal is the research and development of low power (about 100 W) close-drift thruster with improved magnetic field. The patented design of the magnetic field makes possible to dramatically reduce the permissible size of aconventional stationary plasma thruster (SPT) that is limited by magnetic saturation of the inner magnetic path. The thruster with our improved magnetic f ...

  10. PAL: Pre-Clinical Fabrication & Outcomes Studies

    SBC: Michigan Critical Care Consultants, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): End-stage Lung Disease from all causes is the fourth leading cause of death in the US. Despite the success of lung transplantation, demand for donor lungs has steadily outgrown supply. Currently, the average wait is 2 years, with 30% wait-list mortality. Likewise, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a predominant cause of death in trauma and critic ...
