  1. Detect the Lesser Grain Borer in Stored Grain Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: 813

    The long term goal of this project is to eliminate insect pests from the US food and feed supply with a sensor device, minimize exposure of humans and animals to residual chemicals or insecticides, and reduce financial losses due to grain damage. The lesser grain borer (LGB) is a devastating, long-lived pest of stored wheat, corn and other cereal grains in the US and other parts of the world. Adul ...

  2. Monitor and Control the Formosan Subterranean Termite in Forest Resources Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: 81

    The Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus, FST), an exotic, cryptic pest, causes about $1 billion damage in the US annually (Lax and Osbrink). Unlike native species, this aggressive termite attacks living trees, potentially threatening southern forests and the urban/forest interface. Potential forest damage is twofold: direct damage or death to trees and indirect disruption or disp ...

  3. Novel method for improving algae harvesting

    SBC: Phycal LLC            Topic: 87

    Algae are one of the most, if not the most, productive biomass crops known and have a photosynthetic efficiency almost twice that of the most productive terrestrial crop, sugarcane. However, algae are not without disadvantages relative to terrestrial crops, and do require their own novel technical solutions. Characteristically, microalgae are aquatic, very small (1 to 10 micron diameter), very dil ...

  4. Production and Marketing of a Novelty Specialty Pepper, Capsicum baccatum

    SBC: WILSON'S CEDAR POINT FARMS LLC            Topic: 812

    Certain types of specialty peppers may be desired by chefs. Capsicum baccatum, a relative of peppers commonly grown in the U.S. A, is a diverse species; both wild and cultivated forms occur in South America. However, cultivation of C. baccatum outside of South America is rare, and little scientific information is available with regard to cultivation of these relatively primitive cultivars of peppe ...

  5. Development of effective non-antibiotic dry-off agents for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    This project addresses priority areas of 1) Animal Productivity (in both conventional and alternative production systems), 2) Animal Health and Well-Being, and 3) Food Safety and Environmental Mitigation, as described in the NIFA Program Announcement for Phase I SBIR applications. 1) Productivity: Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, dis ...

  6. Development of a safe and efficacious vaccine for Rift Valley fever virus

    SBC: BIOPROTECTION SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: 83

    This application addresses the USDA NIFA "Global Food Security and Hunger" primary societal challenge area by developing a countermeasure against a potential agricultural disease threat - Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV). RVFV is an arthropod-borne pathogen that often results in severe morbidity and mortality in both humans and livestock. RVF manifests itself in the vast majority of indivi ...

  7. Replicon Particle Vaccine for White Spot Syndrome Virus in Marine Shrimp Phase II

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: 87

    Currently there are no truly effective interventions or therapeutic treatments for White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) in farmed shrimp. Current production practices focus on pathogen exclusion by stocking specific pathogen free (SPF) larvae, decontamination and filtration of water to prevent pathogen introduction, and strict biosecurity at hatcheries and grow out pond sites. This is extremely challe ...

  8. A transfollicular nanovaccine against leishmaniasis

    SBC: VINDICO NANOBIOTECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The World Health Organization estimates that over 350 million people are at risk of developing leishmaniasis and infection prevalence is 14 million people in the world. Annually, 2 million people are infected with Leishmania species and 270,000 will die. Leishmaniasis is one of the most important parasitic diseases affecting the U.S. military today, with over 2 ...

  9. Development of a Porcine Model of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    SBC: EXEMPLAR GENETICS, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary/Abstract Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked recessive disorder caused by mutations in the DMD gene with a prevalence of 1 in 3500 male births. The consequent loss of functional dystrophin results in the progressive degeneration of skeletal and cardiac muscle. Despite significant progress in our understanding of this disease and ...

  10. Modulation of In Vivo Tumor Oxygenation via Polymersome-encapsulated Myoglobin

    SBC: VINDICO NANOBIOTECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 250,000 new cases of head and neck cancers (HNCs) and non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) are diagnosed every year in the United States. At the time of diagnosis, 60% of these cases are regionally advanced (stageIII and IV). Wide surgical excision is not the immediate therapeutic option for most of these locally advanced solid tumor malignancies. A number ...
