  3. Immunologically cross reactive proteins for broadly protective Campylobacter chicken vaccines

    SBC: PATHOVACS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Human Campylobacter disease caused by the foodborne pathogens, Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli, is a huge public health problem globally. The economic burden of this disease, which ranges from mild self-limiting diarrhea to devastating neurological complications, in the United States alone is estimated at more than USD 8 billion annually. Broiler chickens harbor these pathogens in thei ...

  4. Energy Efficiency for Rural Communities

    SBC: KRELL ENERGY EFFICIENCY            Topic: 86

    Rural communities, comprised of both residential and commercial buildings, are struggling to maintain their populations and the vitality of their downtown districts and schools. They are spending significant dollars on energy bills and wasting as much as 25% of that energy. Buildings accounted for 81% ($294 billion) of total dollars spent on U.S. electricity in 2008 and consumed more than 50% of t ...
