  1. Consultation System for Lung Nodule Detection

    SBC: Advanced Applications            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop a computer-assisted consultation system for clinical radiologists in thedetection of lung nodules (cancer) on chest radiographs. An automated screening of digital chestradiographs can be further developed when this system is fully tested in various clinical settings. Thesuccess of this project will inspire revolutionary improvements in other cancer diagnostic proceduresth ...

  5. Test for Occult Micrometastases in Primary Breast Cancer

    SBC: BCR DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop and validate a new assay system to replace existing immunocytochemicalassays for detecting occult micrometastases in bone marrow of patients with primary breast cancer.This assay would offer simplicity, low cost, and a quantitative end point. The assay is based on aninnovative amplification mechanism, the bacterial chain reaction (BCR), which is potentially capable oflowering the d ...

  8. Assays to Detect and Type HPV DNA in Oral Cancer

    SBC: Bioserve Biotechnologies, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    Association of human papillomaviruses (HPV) infection an carcinogenesis of the uterine cervixhas been firmly established both epidemiologically and in the laboratory. Several HPV subtypes are nowconsidered to be contributing factors for cervical cancer. However, the association of HPV and oralcancer has not been fully investigated. The Southern blotting technique, HPV-32, HPV-13 and HPV-6have been ...

  9. Breast Cancer Detection by PCR Based DNA Fingerprinting

    SBC: Bioserve Biotechnologies, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    Dysfunctional genes and aberrant expression of regulatory genes are speculated to be key eventsin human tumorigenesis. In breast cancer, examples of these genes include, but are not limited toc-erbB-2 (HER-2/neu), int-2, and c-myc, (oncogenes), and p53 (tumor suppressor gene). Many otherundefined oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes may also play a role in breast cancer development.We propose to d ...

  10. Quant. Of HCV RNA Using a DNA Capture Assay

    SBC: Biotech Research Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    A simple, inexpensive and reliable format amendable for testing large numbers of clinical samplesfor the presence of HCV RNA will be developed in the course of this contract. The conditions for samplecollection, storage and processing will be carefully controlled to ensure maximum reproducibility andoptimum recovery of viral nucleic acids. Amplification will be carried out with biotin-labeled prim ...
