  1. Rapid bacteriophage susceptibility testing using small molecule sensor technology

    SBC: Specific Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: DHA202001

    The evolution and spread of bacterial infections resistant to all known antibiotic drugs has spurred renewed interest in bacteriophage therapy. Phage therapy is a non-traditional antimicrobial method relevant to warfighters with drug resistant infections associated with complications of combat-related injuries. Both the development and use of phage therapies requires the availability of diagnostic ...

  2. Rapid Detection of Bacteriophage Susceptibility in Antibiotic-Resistant Pathogens using cellPhoresis®

    SBC: CHARLOT BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: DHA202001

    Post-injury infection is a persistent problem among U.S. military service members in the field and in military hospitals. An increasing fraction of these infections are due to antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). A key tool against these novel pathogens is bacteriophage therapy, in which phages (a form of virus that infect bacteria) are administ ...

  3. A Multiplexed Bactericidal Assay for Shigella Lipopolysaccharide Antibodies

    SBC: SunFire Biotechnologies LLC            Topic: DHA202002

    Shigella, a major cause of diarrhea for military personnel and civilians, is often associated with Shigella flexneri serotypes 2a, 3a, and 6, and Shigella sonnei. These shigella strains express serologically distinct O-antigen polysaccharides at the distal end of LPS molecules. To control shigella diseases, various shigella antigens are being investigated as vaccine candidates. In the wake of the ...

  4. Development of Human Monoclonal Antibody Therapeutic against Klebsiella pneumoniae Infection

    SBC: Centivax Inc            Topic: DHA202003

    he greatest danger after hemorrhage in combat related injuries is sepsis. Despite the reduction in post-traumatic sepsis over the past 20 years, mortality may be as high as 25%. K. pneumoniae is a gram negative organism and leading cause of sepsis. Infections with this organism often result in incomplete wound healing. Importantly the worldwide emergence of antibiotic-resistant strains of K.p. has ...

  5. Technology for Portable Dialysate Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA202004

    Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication of severe trauma, and it is critical for these patients to have rapid access to dialysis equipment. Unfortunately, battlefield hospitals may be unable to access the large volumes of dialysate fluid required. In order to avoid the high logistical cost of shipping aqueous solutions into battlefield locations and to ensure continual access to this po ...

  6. Portable Oculomotor and Multi-sensing Assessment System (POMAS)

    SBC: Vistendo Inc.            Topic: DHA192003

    The capability to quickly and accurately identify TBI and characterize its severity on the field is important for quick immediate Return-To-Duty (RTD) and treatment determination. In the operation theater, medical or non-medical personnel will need to be able to perform medical assessment under stressful circumstances and to provide treatment quickly. The diagnosis of TBI (including mild and moder ...

  7. Wearable Electronics to Integrate Multisensory Cueing for Aircrew Mishap Prevention

    SBC: Engineering Acoustics Incorporated            Topic: DHA193001

    In both military and civilian aviation, the largest cause of fatalities is spatial disorientation (SD) This usually occurs when pilots lose situation awareness (SA), usually due to a loss of visual references or when the gravitoinertial forces associated with flight act on the vestibular and body senses to create erroneous perception. The Tactile Situation Awareness System (TSAS) is a countermeasu ...

  8. In-Flight Urine Undergarment

    SBC: HYDROGY, LLC            Topic: DHA193003

    We propose to develop and test & evaluate an operational in-flight bladder relief undergarment to meet and/or exceed the key performance parameters (KPPs) per DHA193-003 solicitation. It is mission critical for air crew members to answer nature’s call with as little distraction as possible when he or she is in an unnaturally restricted position while concentrating on tasks at hands. Improper man ...

  9. Composite Helmet to Mitigate Concussive Force

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA211002

    Despite the advances in a combat helmet design and materials’ evolution, the major drawback of the current state-of-the art ACH helmet, as well as some more recent advanced designs such as FAST and ECH, is that they still don’t offer enough of blast shockwave energy dissipation and absorption to fully protect a soldier from concussive brain injuries. As such, a new supplementary lightweight de ...

  10. Prevention Device Suitable for Exposure to Blast or Concussive Forces

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: DHA211002

    The K&C ShockPads is a Blast Protection System (BPS) that is designed to integrate with combat helmets to greatly reduce the shock load and risk of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from blast overpressure. The BPS is designed to reduce the force load transfer from the exterior of the helmet and prevent underwash pressure effects between the head and helmet. This system accomplishes this by using a nov ...
