  1. Biocatalytic production of precursors to lutein and zeaxanthin to address age related macular degeneration

    SBC: EscaZyme Biochemicals, LLC            Topic: N

    Project Summary Atrophic dry age related macular degeneration AMD is the leading cause of severe loss of vision for those over age Dietary supplements containing lutein and zeaxanthin are recommended by the NEI for those at risk of late AMD There has been a corresponding growth in demand for these two xanthophylls Lutein and zeaxanthin are currently sourced from marigolds grown mostl ...

  2. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: JOHNSON ROCKETS            Topic: AF15AT21

    This Phase II STTR effort is focused on generating the data necessary to identify the phenomenology that produces carbon deposition within kerosene film cooled rocket engines.This data is essential to guide the model development and validation process.Program outputs will be both data and a physics-based model for carbon deposition.

  3. 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 ...

  4. Mucins in the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Pancreatic Diseases

    SBC: Sanguine Diagnostics And Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Due to its asymptomatic nature and lack of methods for early detection, gt 80% of pancreatic cancer (PC) patients present with an unresectable primary tumor with distant metastasis at the time of diagnosis. While the overall 5 year survival rate of pancreatic cancer is dismal, significantly better outcomes have been reported for smaller tumors detected at an e ...

  6. RADIOGRAPHIC CONTRAST TO DIFFERENTIATE CAVITATED FROM NON-CAVITATED DENTAL CARIES

    SBC: FIREFLY HEALTH INNOVATIONS NE, INC.            Topic: NIDCR

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant This project aims to improve the accuracy of tests for early tooth decay dental caries specifically for interproximal surfaces where the posterior teeth abut one another In these regions there is no physical space to visually inspect or probe for caries Instead dentists rely on bitewing X rays BWs But dentists cannot tell whether lucencies observed ...

  7. Galectin 1: A novel small protein therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy

    SBC: STRYKAGEN CORPORATION            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy DMD is a fatal muscle disease affecting in every male births DMD results from mutations in the gene encoding the dystrophin a kDa scaffolding protein responsible for providing a mechanical link between the muscle fiber actin cytoskeleton and a transmembrane protein complex called the dystrophin associated glycoprotein ...

  8. Identification of Borrelia burgdorferi diagnostic biomarkers in humans and nonhum

    SBC: DxDiscovery Incorporated            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant The number of Lyme disease cases in the US has been recently estimated by the CDC at cases year This is major public health concern Currently available diagnostics rely on detection of the antibody response serology to Borrelia burgdorferi the causative agent of Lyme disease However serological tests are not accurate during the early stages of Ly ...

  9. Voxel-based Fusion (VOXION)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: In ISR applications, multiple sensors can be employed to achieve more accurate parameters of interest on targets, improving discrimination and detection. But, the proliferation of sensor systems has created a large volume of multi-sensor data across a number of physical spectra. These resulting measurements can be so disparate that traditional aggregation methods perform poorly given h ...
