  4. Demand Driven Healthcare Scheduling using Flexible Shifts and Monte-Carlo Simulat

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: NINR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The shortage of nurses and medical technologists is accelerating. Shortages can be reduced by scheduling staff to precisely meet the hour-by-hour demand for medical service. Think of bank teller scheduling, where more staff are scheduled at peak demand. Current attempts to schedule to demand are relatively primitive: a small number of quantized fixed shifts, fo ...

  5. Refinement of lead compounds to modulate water permeability through AQP4

    SBC: AEROMICS, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cerebral edema (and its counterpart in the spinal cord) is a major contributor to the damage caused by stroke, traumatic brain injury, traumatic spinal-cord injury, and bacterial meningitis. Stroke alone is the third leading cause of death in the USA and the leading cause of disability. Unfortunately, few treatment options are available for cerebral and spinal- ...

  7. Nucleic acid delivery of growth factors and heparan sulfate proteoglycans for enh

    SBC: International Medicine and Biomedical Research            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In chronic wounds, numerous factors contribute to the diminished healing. Wound healing constituents, including heparan sulfate proteoglycans and numerous growth factors, are essential to normal skin wound healing. Several key growth factors such as FGF, VEGF, and PDGF require heparan sulfate-like polymers as co- receptors or co-activators for growth factor act ...

  8. A Flow Through Cell Counting Assay

    SBC: Allied Innovative Systems LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of the proposed research is to develop a novel quantitative flow through cell counting method for enumeration of CD4+ T lymphocytes in human blood. CD4 cell counts are needed to stage and monitor HIV-infected patients. In adults, the absolute number of CD4+ T cells per microlitre of blood has critical prognostic and therapeutic implications, ...

  9. Endotracheal Tube Monitor for Neonates

    SBC: ARTANN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year, at least 10,000 critically sick babies in respiratory failure are intubated for ventilator support. For these babies, intubation bears major health risks such as airway emergencies, cardiopulmonary arrest, pneumothoraces. Neonates, however young, can be quite active, leading to undesirable tube movement and unplanned extubations. To date, there exist ...

  10. Therapeutic Potential of Ex vivo expanded Human Cord Blood derived CD133+ cells i

    SBC: Arteriocyte, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) is a common problem that often results in major limb amputation. Circulating endothelial progenitor cells likely play a role in the pathogenesis of CLI; the number and function of these cells that are mobilized from the bone marrow are reduced in the elderly and diabetics, groups at high risk for CLI. Allogenic Umbilical Cord Blood ...
