  3. Decision Support System for Predicting outcome of ER+ breast cancers

    SBC: IBRIS, INC.            Topic: NIBIB

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose an alternative, inexpensive means for identifying the subset of women with ER+ breast cancer for whom hormonal therapy alone is sufficient, and adjuvant chemotherapy is not required. Our novel approach uses computer vision and machine learning techniques to extract information from digitized histological sections of breast tissue (e.g. graphical and ...

  4. Tagging of Histopathology Specimens with Light-Activated RFID Chips

    SBC: PHARMASEQ, INC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of the present project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a novel RFID chip to tag and track tissue cassettes and glass slides that are used in histopathology laboratories. The system is based on thePharmaSeq laser light-activated microtransponder, also known as p-Chip . The chip's major advantages are its small size (500 5m x 500 5m x ...

  6. A Biomimetic Prehensile Digit for Upper-Limb Prostheses

    SBC: Invisible Hand Enterprises, LLC            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Among amputation types involving the upper limbs, partial hand is the most prevalent by far and among the most challenging for prosthetists to address well. Sound side overreliance for these amputees gives rise to a high prevalence of contralateral overuse syndrome (COS), a progressive, painful, and debilitating condition. Research shows that prostheses reduce ...

  7. Development of algorithm for identification of functional self-delivering RNAi co


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Introduction of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) into cells with transfection reagents results in efficient gene silencing. Unfortunately, while siRNA-based functional genomics is widely used in vitro, the ability to apply this technology to primary cells and in vivo target validation has been impeded limited availability of efficient and non-toxic delivery syst ...

  8. A Compact, Portable Oxygen Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this Phase I SBIR project, TDA Research, Inc. will develop a compact, lightweight portable oxygen concentrator (POC) for medical operations and carry out a breadboard demonstration to produce continuous flow of enriched oxygen (O2) from ambient air. The new POC will weigh less than 10 lbs including the rechargeable batteries that will provide a minimum of 10 ...

  9. Noninvasive Total Hemoglobin Monitor

    SBC: Kestrel Labs Inc            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is a rare event when new and useful medical parameters can be added to the suite of monitoring and diagnostic tests available in a clinical setting. Of particular importance is the ability to measure crucial physiological parameters or analytes in a continuous and noninvasive manner-evidenced by the importance of noninvasive vital signs monitoring-because it ...

  10. Micro-patterned Surfaces for Reducing the Risk of Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia

    SBC: Sharklet Technologies Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is the most costly and second most common hospital-acquired infection (HAI), accounting for over 86% of hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP). Some 300,000 HAP patients are treated annually in the U.S., at an estimated annual hospital cost of more than 1.5 billion. The current paradigm for preventing VAP has been to implement ...
