  1. Production of High Specific Activity Lutetium-177

    SBC: ALPHAMED, INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A separation method will be tested and evaluated to determine the feasibility of providing no carrier added lutetium-177 (Lu-177) for use in radiotherapeutic applications. An indirect method will be used to produce Lu-177 (neutron capture followed by decay). Separation of the Lu-177 from the target material will enable us to provide carrier-free Lu-177 suita ...

  2. Novel Nanostructured Calcium Phosphate for Gene Delivery to Bone

    SBC: Angstrom Medica, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Osteoporosis is a major and growing health care problem that responds inadequately to standard pharmacologic therapy. Because of its low bone mineral density, osteoporotic bone is mechanically weak and fractures more easily than normal bone. Moreover, fracture repair is compromised in osteoporotic patients. The work described in this Phase I STTR proposal aims ...

  3. Design of an Automated Psoriasis Treatment System

    SBC: Boston Array Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Up to 3 percent of populations worldwide have psoriasis. A large number of the patients with psoriasis can be treated using UV light exposure. We propose to employ a light modulating microchip based on recent Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technological developments to build an Automated Psoriasis Treatment System. The overall goal of Phase I a ...

  4. Use of Self-Assembled Crystals in Cyanide Detection

    SBC: CHEMMOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): ChemMotif, Inc. is developing a range of sophisticated test strips that are reliable and sufficiently sensitive to be useful in public health, environmental, and homeland security applications. The objective of this proposal is the development of an improved analytical test strip for the determination of cyanide in water at or below EPA actionable levels (0. ...

  5. Mapping disease-specific human protein networks

    SBC: Curagen Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While the human genome sequence is known, medical advances will require knowledge of how individual genes and proteins assemble into functional biological networks. These networks are built in part through physical interactions between proteins. Protein interaction networks can now be probed using highthroughput experimental methods, yet challenges remain: dat ...

  6. Development of a Genetic Therapy for CF in a CF Rabbit

    SBC: EVERGEN BIOTECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The development of transgenic mouse models for cystic fibrosis (CF) has been an important contribution to our understanding of CF and of CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) function. However, because of the dissimilarity between mouse and human anatomy and physiology, there are limitations in what can be discerned about CF pathology and in development ...

  7. Oral Therapeutic for Beta-Thalassemia

    SBC: Gene Regulation Laboratories            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The beta thalassemia syndromes are prevalent genetic disorders caused by molecular mutations affecting the genes for adult hemoglobin and cause early mortality from complications of blood transfusions. These conditions can be ameliorated by reactivating production of fetal hemoglobin (Hb F) in the patients' blood. Pharmacologic re-induction of HbF has been achi ...

  8. Transgenic Goats Produced by Germ Cell Transplantation

    SBC: GTC BIOTHERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to produce transgenic goats by manipulation of the male germ line through male germ cell transfection and transplantation. The goats will carry the gene for human growth hormone (rhGH) under the control of a mammary gland specific promoter such that the milk of transgenic females will be an efficient source of protein for purif ...

  9. Hyperspectral Assessment & Prediction of Diabetic Foot U

    SBC: Hypermed, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Foot disease complications seriously impact lives of people with Type 1 diabetes. A quantitative method to evaluate efficacy of therapy, or better, to define tissue at risk & prevent initial ulcer formation would be highly beneficial. HYPERMED'S long-term objective is to reduce frequency of foot ulcers & amputation by developing Foot HyperSpectral Imaging (FHSI ...

    STTR Phase II 2005 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. Virulence Typing of Pseudomonas Clinical Isolates

    SBC: L2 DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic bacterial pathogen responsible for a significant proportion of serious hospital acquired infections. The organism has intrinsic resistance to most types of antibiotics and can readily acquire resistance to all clinically available antimicrobials, resulting in infections that are impossible to treat. P. aeruginosa colo ...
