  5. Commercial Development Of A Sustainable

    SBC: Origen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Marek's disease vaccines are the most widely used vaccines in the poultry industry. Since there are nosustainable cell lines suitable for propagating Marek's disease virus (MDV), the MDV vaccine industryuses primary chicken embryo fibroblasts (CEF) for production of vaccine virus. CEFs constitute asignificant proportion of the total cost of MDV vaccine production. Therefore, a significant reduc ...

  6. Integrate And Develop The Natural Endod

    SBC: Prolong Water Service Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Experiments using a static bioassay system as a basis to develop a focal control method forDreissena illustrates the potential usefulness of the plant molluscicides, Lemmatoxins, fromPhytolacca dodecandra or Endod. Endod at a dose higher than 15mg/L is lethal to adult zebramussels, while a lower dose prevents their adhesion and aggregation. Since Endod plant havebeen successfully grown as monocu ...

  10. Novel, High-Performance Architectural Roof Coatings from Epoxidized Soybean Oil

    SBC: Chem Link Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this project, we will develop cost-effective, environmentally benign architectural roof coatings derived from agricultural products. Each year more than 5 billion pounds of material are used for roof coatings leading to the emission of more than 2.5 billion pounds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Our preliminary studies have shown that cationic photopolymerizations of epoxidized soybean ...
