  1. Complex Crystalloid Resuscitative Fluid

    SBC: GanD Inc            Topic: DHA172009

    Problem: Currently available resuscitation fluids have been shown to induce detrimental effects on trauma outcomes.Objective: The objective of this proposal is to use the data from the successful Phase 1 studies to guide the continued development and testing of the novel resuscitation fluid (GND-001), which has been designed to address the deficiencies of current resuscitation fluids.Proposed work ...

  2. Field portable Coliform bacteria & E. Coli RNA biomarker LAMP- OSD system

    SBC: Fabrico Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHA17004

    Fabrico Technology, Dr. Sanchita Bhadra and Professor Andrew Ellington of the University of Texas at Austin, have successfully demonstrated the proof-of-concept of an unparalleled, first-in-class in-field nucleic acid diagnostic platform for distinction of viable from non-viable E. coli and coliforms in

  3. BioloGel- Building Blocks for Osteochondral Regeneration

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA17009

    Current strategies for the treatment of osteochondral injuries are ineffective and are associated with significant side effects. Microfracture techniques have demonstrated limited efficacy over long periods of time and are less effective for larger osteochondral defects. Osteochondral autograft transplants require harvesting from a donor site, which can lead to donor site morbidity. Further, while ...

  4. Passively Regulated Cryogenic (PaRC) Vial System for Vaccine Distribution and Administration

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: DHP163003

    Warfighters in global regions endemic to vector-borne diseases, such as malaria, experience increased probability of being non-combatcasualties. Currently, a malaria vaccine is under development that requires cryogenic storage and transport (-150C or lower) and thereforedoes not readily integrate with existing vaccine distribution networks such as the World Health Organizations Expanded Program on ...

  5. Developing Software for Pharmacodynamics and Bioassay Studies

    SBC: TCONNEX INC.            Topic: DHP16C001

    The goal is to develop a software tool that implements a novel approach applicable to fit general pharmacologic, toxicology, or other biomedical data, that may exhibit a non-monotonic dose-response relationship for which the current parametric models fail.The software explores dose-response relationships using both monotonic and non-monotonic models, and estimates the associated dose-response curv ...

  6. Development of a Wearable Bladder Monitoring System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA172012

    Soldiers with spinal cord injury (SCI) face a lifetime of bladder dysfunction. Although the type and character of this dysfunction depends on the severity and level of spinal injury, many of these soldiers and veterans suffer from renal insufficiency, frequent and severe antibiotic-resistant bladder infections, and the emotional and social stress of unexpected bladder leakage. We propose that sign ...

  7. Non-invasive Telemetric Assessment of Gut Microbiota Activity in Situ

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DHA17A004

    Different regions of the human GI tract exhibit different chemical environments and different digestion metabolites. As a result, these regions support different microorganisms, with gradients in metabolic products along the length of the GI tract. Single-point measurements of microbiome metabolites (e.g. in feces) are insufficient to provide detailed information of physiological status because th ...

  8. Development of an Automated Vascular Access Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA173003

    Vascular access is a critical and early step in the stabilization and treatment of critically injured soldiers and civilians. Traditional peripheral intravenous (PIV) access and central venous cannulation (CVC) access becomes exceedingly difficult in the field, particularly in patients who are volume-depleted from blood loss or dehydration, vasoconstricted, or hypothermic. We propose a self-contai ...

  9. Biomechanical Rat Testing Device to Validate Primary Blast Loading Conditions for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17AT022

    Blast induced Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major threat to the health of military personnel serving in modern theaters.As such, the biomechanical injury pathways of TBI are, and have been, the focus of many animal studies.However, differences in the experimental setups across laboratories make it difficult to draw definitive conclusions from the resulting data.A tool that can accurately estim ...

  10. Scene Registration Augmented Reality as an Educational Tool to Identify Underlying Anatomy during Medical Simulation Training

    SBC: SHARP VISION SOFTWARE LLC            Topic: DHP163002

    Based on the findings of Phase I on the latest scene detection technologies including Vuforia, Apples ARKit on iOS11, Microsoft Spacial Mapping on HoloLens, and Unity Multiplayer, a prototyping effort using a mixed approach to scene detection is proposed for Phase II to take advantage of the available technologies to create the best user experience possible for anatomical training. Dynamic 3D mode ...
