  1. Low Cost and Rapid DNA-Based Biometric Device

    SBC: NetBio, Inc.            Topic: HSB091001

    Sensitive site exploitation activities are focused on collecting forensic evidence left behind by persons involved in terrorist or other illegal activity, and the biological evidence recovered is often referred to as"touch DNA samples". Touch samples include fingerprints, skin cells found on clothing (e.g. a shirt collar), and oral epithelial cells found on the opening of a soda can or the rim of ...

  2. Microfabricated Implantable Flowmeter for CSF Shunts Phase II

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An implantable wireless flow sensor system has been under development that would enable measurement of the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt, currently used to treat hydrocephalus patients. CSF flow is a key indicator of shunt function, and there is currently no way to measure it in situ, resulting in the absence ...

  3. Type III Secretion Inhibitors for Anti-Infective Therapy

    SBC: MICROBIOTIX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection is the leading cause of hospital-acquired pneumonia in patients undergoing mechanical ventilation. Current antibiotic treatments exhibit failure rates as high as 18%, even when the organism is susceptible to the antibiotic being administered. The goal of this project is to address this critical medical need by identifying specif ...

  4. Novel Diagnostic Sequencing System for HIV Resistance Testing

    SBC: INTELLIGENT BIO-SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As of 2008 the CDC estimated that there were approximately 1.1 million persons in the U.S. infected with HIV- 1 and about 56,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. During the mid-to-late 1990s, advances in treatment slowed the progression of HIV to AIDS and related deaths. Unfortunately, the treatment often leads to the emergence of drug resistant mutants of HI ...

  5. Development of Superactive Analogs of FSH for Human Infertility

    SBC: TROPHOGEN INC            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Infertility affects about 10% of American couples, and there is a very large and rapidly growing market for therapeutics in this field, particularly the primary hormone responsible for ovarian oocyte development, human(h) follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Although available urinary and recombinant hFSH products have been quite successful, there is currently a ...

  6. Rapid sensitive low-cost test for resistant microbes causing hospital infections

    SBC: FIRST LIGHT BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop a novel automated platform to enable rapid, sensitive, user-friendly, and cost-effective screening for the antibiotic resistant bacteria that frequently cause serious healthcare associated infections. Every year, about 100,000 deaths result from 2 million serious healthcare associated infections at an estimated cost of 35B. About 20,000 f ...

  7. A Self-shielding Network Architecture Integrating Mutation Paradigms

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF093049

    ABSTRACT: The current static nature of systems and networks allows attackers to gather intelligence, perform planning, and then execute attacks at will. If instead we remove this underlying static nature and make the network dynamic, many classes of attacks can be prevented by making them too difficult to carry out without detection as well as by reducing their probability and level of success. ...

  8. Bio-Effects of Ultra-High MRI Gradient Slew Rates

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This application represents a competing renewal request for a Phase II STTR project, in which we constructed an ultra-fast gradient system for magnetic resonance imaging. Operation of the novel system is based upon theprinciple that the nervous system is relatively insensitive to very short exposures to changing magnetic fields. As a result, we are showing in c ...

  10. Confirmatory Immunoblot Test for Chagas' Disease

    SBC: IMMUNETICS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chagas' Disease is a vector-borne parasitic infection of humans with Trypanosoma cruzi, which has recently been identified as an emerging and significant threat to transfusion safety and the blood supply. It is a chronic and potentially fatal condition which affects over 10 million people living in tropical regions of the Americas, is endemic in 21 countri ...
