  2. Accurate Prostate Cancer Diagnosis for Active Surveillance Patients Using a Novel

    SBC: ProDevice Medical Supplies and Equipment LLC            Topic: NCI

    Project Abstract Active surveillance (AS) is becoming more accepted as a reasonable treatment option for men with low-risk prostate cancer (i.e. Gleason score 6, clinical stage T2a, PSA lt 10). Many AS protocols at major institutions call for a prostate saturation biopsy after initial diagnosis to confirm that the patient has no areas of higher-risk prostate cancer. For most patients who underwent ...

  4. An innovative in situ cell reprogramming technology for cancer treatment

    SBC: QURGEN, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We invented an innovative protein induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (piPSCs) technology that generates piPSCs from normal fibroblast and cancer cells within 1-week with 90 4% conversion efficiency. Such high conversion efficiency enables us to pioneer an in situ cell reprogramming technology within the cancers of cancer-bearing animals. Instead of generating iPSCs ...

  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 ...
