  1. Long-lasting Disposable Insecticidal / Repellent Fabric Barrier for Personal or Area Protection Against Biting Arthropods

    SBC: Widder Bros., Inc.            Topic: DHP13003

    The need exists for a low cost, light weight, reusable, highly effective spatial insect repellant that will repel, knock down and kill disease-carrying insects. We propose a Bayer CropScience chemical product, Bayothrin (Transfluthrin) for our studies. Bayothrin is a vapor-active compound that delivers efficacy against flying arthropods. Bayothrin exhibits strong characteristics to vaporize. Th ...

  2. Development of Technologies that Address the Complex Architecture of the Face During the Treatment of Severe Facial Burn Injury

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: DHP13016

    With the advent of improved body armor and vehicles and the enemy"s use of the improved explosion device (IED) in the most recent conflicts, blast injuries and related burns to the face have become more and more common among our Wounded Warriors. Pathological scarring, which often results in contracture, tends to be more prevalent in these burn cases due to the traumatic nature of the IED injury. ...

  3. KeraStat(R) Burn Gel and Halofuginone to Prevent Scar Contracture after Burn Injuries

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: DHP12016

    No currently available burn product has shown efficacy in substantially decreasing wound healing time and preventing scar formation. The goals of this Phase II proposal are to expand on the results obtained in the Phase I study that showed that (1) halofuginone inhibited collagen-mediated contracture in dermal fibroblasts and (2) the presence of the keratin in the KeraStat burn product results in ...

  4. Innovative concept for detection and identification of biological toxins

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD14101

    We aim to create a low-cost, high-sensitivity hand-held plasmonic biosensor capable of sensing biotoxins. We will do this by using newly developed biodesign technology to create a new class of proteins which have an orders-of-magnitude increase in SPR signal-to-noise. These will be incorporated into a novel SPR device in which the transmission of light is affected by the binding of a particular t ...

  5. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  6. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  7. Spatiotemporally Controlled Keratin Biomaterial Delivery System for Functional Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD10H03

    A principal approach in regenerative medicine is to stimulate or augment endogenous repair mechanisms that promote functional restoration of damaged or diseased tissues. When loss of significant volumes of multiple functionally integrated tissues occurs,

  8. Self-Regulating Anesthesia/Analgesia Device Using Automated Fresh Gas Flow to Deliver Inhaled Agents

    SBC: MEDICAL CONSERVATION DEVICES, LLC            Topic: OSD10H05

    The control of pain, anxiety, discomfort, and the sequellae of injury and illness is an over-arching healthcare issue in both military and civilian settings. Current strategies for pain relief, sedation and anesthesia involve infusion of intravenous agen

  9. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  10. Keratin Biomaterials for Cranio-facial Tissue Engineering

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD09H10

    The majority of personnel injured in OIF/OEF have suffered blast injuries from IEDs. Blasts often cause cranio-facial trauma that is difficult to repair surgically. The current standard of care involves the placement of fixation devices and off label use of growth factor carriers. These strategies often require multiple surgical interventions creating a significant need for better technologies ...
