  1. USE OF PCR FOR DIAGNOSING HIV-1 INFECTION IN PEDIATRIC PATIENTS

    SBC: Biotech Research Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    PREVALENCE STUDIES FOR HIV-1 INFECTION IN NEWBORNS ARE DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN BECAUSE THE COMMONLY USED ANTIBODY ASSAYS ARE NOT APPROPRIATE FOR TESTING BABIES. BABIES CARRYTHE MATERNAL ANTIBODY FOR UP TO 12 TO 18 MONTHS AFTER BIRTH,SO ALL BABIES BORN TO SEROPOSITIVE MOTHERS WILL ALSO TEST POSITIVE. YET 40 TO 50 PERCENT OF THESE BABIES ARE NOT ACTUALLY INFECTED. IN THIS RESEARCH, POLYMERASE CHAIN REAC ...

  3. AUTOMATED HOME TABLET AND CAPSULE DISPENSER

    SBC: Checkmate Engineering            Topic: N/A

    OF 28 MILLION AMERICANS OVER AGE 65, 8.5 MILLION LIVE ALONE. MORE THAN 50 PERCENT SUFFER FROM SUCH CHRONIC AILMENTS AS ARTHRITIS, HYPERTENSION, AND HEART DISEASE, ALL OFTEN REQUIRING DAILY MEDICATION. U.S. PUBLIC HEALTH RECORDS ESTIMATE THAT 125,000 DEATHS OCCUR EACH YEAR FROM THE MISUSE OF CARDIOVASCULAR DRUGS ALONE, AND THAT ONE IN EVERY TWO PATIENTS TAKING MEDICINE REGULARLY MAKES ERRORS SUFFIC ...

  4. PDESYS: INTERACTIVE GRAPHICAL SOFTWARE FOR PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS ON MICROCOMPUTERS

    SBC: Civilized Software, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE PDESYS, A SOFTWARE PACKAGE FOR PERSONAL COMPUTERS THAT PROVIDES AN INTERACTIVE GRAPHICAL ENVIRONMENT FOR DEFINING, SOLVING, ANDVIEWING THE SOLUTIONS TO SYSTEMS OF PARABOLIC AND ELLIPTIC PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS (PDE'S) ON ARBITRARY ONE- ANDTWO-DIMENSIONAL SPATIAL DOMAINS. PDE'S OF THE TYPES TO BE HANDLED BY THE PDESYS SOFTWARE ARE UBIQUITOUS I ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF OBJECTIVE HANDWRITING MEASUREMENT TOOLS

    SBC: Evergreen Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE CHANGE IN THE ASSESSMENT OF HANDWRITING SINCE A SCORING SYSTEM WAS DEVISED BY FREEMAN IN 1914. AS A RESULT, LITTLE IS KNOWN REGARDING THE RELATIONSHIP OF HANDWRITING TO OTHER COGNITIVE FUNCTIONS. THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A SERIES OF COMPUTERIZED TOOLBOX FUNCTIONS THAT WILL ALLOW THE OBJECTIVE MEASUREMENT OF HANDWRITING. A COMPUTER GRAPHICS TABLET ATTACHED TO A PERSONAL COMPU ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTOMATED SEGMENTED DNA SYNTHESIZER

    SBC: Genosys Biotechnologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS GRANT WILL SEEK THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTOMATED DNA SYNTHESIZER THAT IS ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE FASTER AND MORE COST EFFECTIVE THAN CURRENT COMMERCIAL DNA SYNTHESIZERS WHILE UTILIZING STANDARD DNA CHEMISTRY. THE GOAL IS TO AUTOMATE THE SOLVENT DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR THE WAFER DNA SYNTHESIS DEVICE AND TO EVENTUALLY AUTOMATE ALL ASPECTS OF THE DEVICE. ONCE COMPLETE AUTOMATION IS ACHIEVED, THE WAFER DN ...

  7. AN OCULAR NEUROTROPHIC FACTOR TO TREAT GLAUCOMA

    SBC: Houston Biotechnology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CILIARY GANGLION INNERVATES SEVERAL IMPORTANT EYE TISSUES, INCLUDING THE CILIARY MUSCLE AND BODY, AND HAS BEEN SHOWN TO REGULATE AQUEOUS OUTFLOW AND ACCOMMODATION. THE EYE DISORDERS, GLAUCOMA AND PRESBYOPIA, MAY INVOLVE THE CILIARY GANGLION THROUGH ITS REGULATION OF AQUEOUS OUTFLOW AND VISUAL ACCOMMODATION. A SUBSTANCE THAT COULD DIRECTLY AND SPECIFICALLY STIMULATE THE CILIARY GANGLION MAY BE ...

  8. FIBER COUPLED SPECTROSCOPIC AIRWAY GAS MONITOR

    SBC: Infrared Fiber Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID-STATE INFRARED SPECTROMETER USING THE ACOUSTO-OPTIC TUNABLE FILTER (AOTF) COUPLED TO FLUORIDE GLASS FIBERS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO MONITOR AIRWAY GASES SUCH AS CARBON DIOXIDE, NITROUS OXIDE, AND THE ANESTHESIA AGENTS. THIS SYSTEM CAN RAPIDLY ACCESS MULTIPLE WAVELENGTHS TO IDENTIFY THE VARIOUS ANESTHESIA AGENTS AND DETERMINE THE CONCENTRATION OF THE GASES. FIBER OPTIC COUPLING ALLOWS THE MEASU ...

  9. STRUCTURES

    SBC: Invocon Consultants            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO MONITOR VIBRATION IN HIGHWAY BRIDGES. IT IS DESIRABLE TO MONITOR MANY POINTS ON THE BRIDGE. THE CURRENT PROBLEM IS THAT SENSORS MUST BE WIRED TO A CENTRAL LOCATION. WIRE IS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL AND TO MOVE. THE SOLUTION IS TO COLLECT SENSOR DATA BY RADIO. A SYSTEM EXISTS THAT ELIMINATES WIRE. IT GATHERS SENSOR DATA TO A CENTRAL LOCATION BY RADIO. THE SYSTEM'S UNIQUE FEATURE IS THA ...

  10. DRUG SCREENING: HIGH-SPEED CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SCREENING OF BODY FLUIDS FOR DRUGS OF ABUSE INCLUDE THE RELATIVELY LOW SPEED OF ANALYSIS AND THE OFTEN POOR RELIABILITY OF THE GENERATED DATA. CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY IS ACKNOWLEDGED TO BE SUPERIOR IN PERFORMANCE TO THIN-LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY AND IMMUNOASSAYS, BUT IT IS GENERALLY TOO SLOW TO BE OF VALUE IN THE SCREENING OF LARGE NUMBERS OF SAMPLES. IONICS RES ...
