  1. SUBCUTANEOUS MONITOR/ALARM FOR CARDIAC ARREST

    SBC: AJ MEDICAL DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is estimated that 220,000 people suffer cardiac arrest each year in the US, of whom only 10,000 survive to hospital discharge. The number of survivors could increase 10-fold if paramedical attention and/or defibrillation were available within a few min

  2. Non-invasive Assessment of Skeletal Muscle Loss in Cancer Patients

    SBC: BIOCHEMANALYSIS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this research is to develop a non-invasive approach for early assessment of de novo 3MH production in cancer patients as a way of assessing which patients are at high risk for future developme nt of skeletal muscle atrophy. The approach is based on the known increase in the rate constant for de novo production of 3-methylhistidine (3M ...

  3. A Non-Invasive Surrogate Test of OGTT to Screen for Pre-diabetes

    SBC: BIOCHEMANALYSIS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objectives of this proposal are to develop an inexpensive, totally non-invasive surrogate test for the 2-h oral glucose tolerance test (2-h OGTT) for the purpose of identifying individuals with pre-diabete s for preventive purposes. We believe that such a test can be developed based on oral administration of a 75-g 13C-labeled glucose solution adm ...
