  1. Enabling point of care molecular diagnostics by developing an adaptive PCR instrument and on demand kit reagents

    SBC: BIOVENTURES, INC            Topic: 172

    Because of its high sensitivity polymerase chain reaction PCR is the gold standard for the diagnosis of many infectious diseases but generally only implemented in well equipped laboratories One of the major roadblocks for expanding PCR to point of care markets is the lack of simple robust single tube PCR designs which preserve its laboratory based high sensitivity and specificity In this F ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Open Standard for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS)

    SBC: Third Dimension Technologies LLC            Topic: AF16AT07

    The Air Force has identified a need for a display agnostic common streaming model for 3D data. Third Dimension Technologies (TDT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have formed a consortium to define a 3D streaming model based on open standards for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS). Two factors are driving this need. The first is the dramatic increase in the collection, storage and trans ...

  8. Development of Compounds for the Prevention and Treatment of Rhabdomyolysis

    SBC: Virtual Drug Development Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this Phase I STTR project is to establish the feasibility of developing a small-molecule therapeutic agent designed to prevent rhabdomyolysis-induced renal failure. Rhabdomyolysis accounts for 7% to 10% of cases of renal failure in the US. Rhabdomyolysis results from muscle injury that leads to the release of myoglobin, which is then deposited ...

  9. Targeting DNA damage response pathways for the treatment of advanced lung cancer

    SBC: CUMBERLAND PHARMACEUTICALS INC.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is an urgent, unmet need for novel therapeutic approaches that are efficacious against lung cancer. Ranking first among cancer deaths in the U.S., this disease has 5-year relative survival rates of lt20%. Most lung cancers are non-small cell (NSCLC, 85% of cases). Curative surgery is not an option for the 80% of NSCLC patients who present with advanced s ...

  10. 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 ...
