  1. Cannula System for "Bridge to Recovery" Cardiac Assist

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiac failure is the, largest single cause of mortality in the United States today. With an increase in the use of long-term cardiac assist devices, there is also a need for the short-term "bridge to recovery" application. This application is intended to provide a low-cost temporary support for patients whose heart is capable of recovering. This "patient scr ...

  2. Capsid assembly inhibitors for the treatment of AIDS

    SBC: Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current HIV-1 therapy suffers from inadequate viral load suppression due to poor compliance, resistance, and interactions with other drugs and can lead to spread of drug-resistant strains. The current drug cocktails need to include inhibitors of viral components that are likely to slow resistance development. One such target is the HIV-1 capsid, an essential vi ...

  5. Breath Analysis using Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The analysis of components in human breath is a powerful non-invasive technique for the diagnosis and monitoring of asthma, cystic fibrosis (CF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The presence of elevated levels of nitric oxide (NO), carbon monoxide (CO), and ethane (C2H6) in the breath have been identified as biomarkers of these diseases, wh ...

  6. Discovery of Peptide-based Bone Morphogenic Protein Mimetics

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this proposal, we present a novel approach for the identification and immobilization of a BMP mimetic. We plan to use phage display technology to identify peptides that mimic BMP-like signaling of the BMP receptors. These peptides will be linked to a previously identified high-affinity, collagen-binding peptide. The resulting hybrid molecule will allow contr ...

  7. Improved Orthopedic Implant Surface Coatings

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Endosseous metallic implants are common alloplastic devices used in medicine and dentistry. The orthopedic and dental marketplace continues to grow and indications for implants are expanding. There is a perceived need to improve both the successful healing (osseointegration) and the long term outcome of implants by control of interfacial reactivity during healing and remodeling. The growth of know ...

  8. Electrochemical RT activity assay for measuring HIV load

    SBC: ALDERON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this Phase I SBIR project Alderon Biosciences Inc. (ABI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of using electrochemical reverse transcriptase (eRT) assays for determinations of HIV viral load in clinical samples. Success will set the stage for Phase II development, FDA approval, and production of commercial kits using this advanced technology. The long-r ...

  9. Electrochemical Quantification of HCV RNA

    SBC: ALDERON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease have called for better tools for the detection and diagnosis of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. To meet this need, Alderon Biosciences Inc. (ABI) proposes to develop innovative, low-cost tests with sensitivity adequate for determining HCV viral load. Reliable and affordable HCV viral load t ...

  10. Digital Fluoroscopy for Cardiac Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Real-time or dynamic radiographic imaging (fluoroscopy) provides vital information concerning internal organ structure, flow of contrast agents and in-vivo instrument positioning. Fluoroscopy is a very important modality for cardiac and vascular imaging including subtraction angiography where it is used for locating and evaluating cardiac structures, major v ...
