  1. Developing a small peptide to control autoimmune inflammation in type diabetes

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    Abstract Type Diabetes T D affects an ever growing population While this disease typically has been associated with juveniles the disease in adult populations is rapidly increasing The defining clinical component is insulin loss which occurs because of sustained inflammation in the islets At present there is no means to prevent or reverse insulin loss A major inflammatory pathway in T D ...

  3. Screening for the autoimmune component of multiple sclerosis

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    Multiple Sclerosis is an inflammatory neurodegenerative disease with autoimmune components that exacerbate and potentially initiate the disease Diagnosis is invasive time consuming relatively expensive and extremely difficult In fact no clear diagnostic test yet exist A major concern is that MS symptoms are identical to the symptoms of numerous other neurologic diseases OND as well as some ...

  5. Non invasive risk assessment tool for pediatric heart failure


    ABSTRACT Heart Failure HF in pediatric patients is a devastating disease that is difficult to evaluate even with invasive hospital procedures Importantly and unique to the pediatric population approximately of pediatric HF patients spontaneously recover normal heart function within year of diagnosis Unfortunately there is no reliable clinical parameter or biomarker that allows pedia ...

  6. Development of a Clinical Screening Platform for Type Diabetes

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIDDK

    Abstract A major shortfall in clinical care for diabetes is a rapid and accurate screen for progression to disease Current criteria involve HLA haplotype and the presence of auto antibodies AA Genome wide associated studies GWAS revealed only immune associated genes including HLA as T D predictors The ability to differentiate from other diseases was very limited Pre type diabetes p T ...

  7. Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) for characterizing invertebrate vision

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    In partnership with the Strausfeld Lab at the University of Arizona, BNS proposes to develop an Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) based on our previous VIS/NIR Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) design. Using BNS-developed liquid crystal (LC) spatial light modulators (SLMs), this display will provide high-speed multispectral wide-field visual stimulus to invertebrates ov ...

  8. Shear Stabilization Based Framework for the Failure Testing and Analysis of HSCs

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: AF17AT019

    This program will develop an engineering framework for the design and failure analysis of high strain composite (HSC) laminates. The program will first test several HSC laminates to generate a statistically significant dataset for flexural strength. Testing will be performed for short and long term stowage conditions. Initial and ultimate failure modes will be identified and documented using sever ...

  9. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...
