  3. TRANSLOCATABLE HERBICIDES

    SBC: Terronics Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT-DAY HERBICIDE SPRAYING OF FIELD ROW CROPS IS VERY INEFFICIENT; OVER 75 PERCENT OF THE HERBICIDE IS WASTED AS OVERSPRAY, WHICH IS COSTLY AND CONTAMINATES THE ENVIRONMENT.THE FEASIBILITY OF EFFICIENTLY APPLYING TRANSLOCATABLE HERBICIDES WITH ELECTROSTATIC SPRAY DEPOSITION TECHNIQUES WILL BE EXAMINED. STUDIES WILL EVALUATE DIFFERENT PARTICLE CHARGING MEANS, INCLUDING INDUCTION CHARGING, CORON ...

  5. AN AMBULATORY UTERINE ACTIVITY MONITOR (AUAM) IS PROPOSED FOR THE MONITORING OF PATIENTS AT RISK FOR PREMATURE LABOR.

    SBC: Biodyne Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN AMBULATORY UTERINE ACTIVITY MONITOR (AUAM) IS PROPOSED FOR THE MONITORING OF PATIENTS AT RISK FOR PREMATURE LABOR. NEONATAL PREMATURITY REMAINS A GREAT CHALLENGE. IN 1975, ONE PERCENT OF U.S. LIVE BIRTHS DEVELOPED RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME (RDS), OF WHICH 6,000 TO 8,000 DEATHS WEREDIRECTLY ATTRIBUTABLE TO PREMATURITY. ADDITIONALLY, 75 PERCENT OF ALL PERINATAL DEATHS ARE IN PREMATURE INFANTS ...

  6. MUSSEL-ADHESIVE PROTEIN-A SUBSTRATE FOR CELLS IN VITRO

    SBC: Biopolymers Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN RECENT YEARS, IT HAS BECOME RECOGNIZED THAT MANY OF THE PROBLEMS EXPERIENCED IN INITIATING CELL CULTURES IN VITRO WITH LOW SEEDING DENSITIES OR NEWLY ISOLATED CELLS ARE SUBSTRATE-RELATED. SPECIFICALLY, STUDIES HAVE FOUND THAT MANY OF THESEPROBLEMS STEM FROM INADEQUATE SURFACE PROPER- TIES FOUND WITH PLASTIC AND GLASS TISSUE CULTURE SURFACES AND LOWER THAN OPTIMAL LEVELS IN NUTRITIVE MEDIA OF SE ...

  7. CONSIDERABLE EFFORT HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE USE OF CYANOA- CRYLATES FOR CLINICAL OCULAR REPAIR AS ADJUNCTS TO OR IN LIEU OF SURGICAL PROCEDURES.

    SBC: Biopolymers Inc            Topic: N/A

    CONSIDERABLE EFFORT HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE USE OF CYANOA- CRYLATES FOR CLINICAL OCULAR REPAIR AS ADJUNCTS TO OR IN LIEU OF SURGICAL PROCEDURES. THROUGH REPEATED STUDIES, HOWEVER, THESE ADHESIVES HAVE PROVED TO BE DAMAGING TO THE EYE TISSUE BY CAUSING INFLAMMATION, NEOVASCULARIZATION AND TISSUE NECROSIS. AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO CYANOACRYLATES, THIS PROJECT PROPOSES THE USE OF MUSSEL-ADHESIVE PROTEIN ...

  8. THE COMMON MARINE MUSSEL, MYTILUS EDULIS, HAS EVOLVED A MECHANISM FOR PERMANENT ATTACHMENT TO MANY DIFFERENT SURFACES UNDERWATER.

    SBC: Biopolymers Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE COMMON MARINE MUSSEL, MYTILUS EDULIS, HAS EVOLVED A MECHANISM FOR PERMANENT ATTACHMENT TO MANY DIFFERENT SURFACES UNDERWATER. THE KEY TO THIS ANIMAL'S ADHESIVE MECHANISM IS A PROTEINACEOUS CEMENT, I.E., MUSSEL-ADHESIVE PROTEIN (MAP), WHICH RECENTLY HAS BEEN SEQUENCED. ONE SPECIFIC AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE WHAT SPECIFIC SIMPLIFICATIONS IN MAP'S REPEATING DECAPEPTIDE STRUCTURE CANBE I ...

  9. COLONOSCOPY IS RECOGNIZED AS A VALUABLE DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR THE DETECTION OF DISORDERS OF THE COLON.

    SBC: CAS MEDICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    COLONOSCOPY IS RECOGNIZED AS A VALUABLE DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR THE DETECTION OF DISORDERS OF THE COLON. HOWEVER, THIS PROCEDURE IS NOT ROUTINELY PERFORMED BECAUSE OF ITS ASSOCIATED COST AND TIME REQUIREMENTS. THE OBJECT OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP AN IMPROVED METHOD FOR THE INSERTION OF A COLONOSCOPE THAT WOULD REDUCE THE INSERTION PROCEDURE TIME, ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR SPECIALTY TRAINING ON INSERT ...
