  1. Development of an effective non-antibiotic dry-off agent for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, discarded milk, chronic morbidity, and prophylactic antibiotic use in the dairy industry. The majority of new infections are associated with the dry period, during which the udders are temporarily engorged with milk that often leaks from the teat ends. Furthermore, the three major agencies of the U.S. ...

  2. Low Cost Small Sample Volume High Precision Carbon Dioxide Analyzer

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 18a

    The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is changing the earths climate. Climate change will cause periods of extremely high daily temperatures, increase the frequency of heavy rainfall, intensify droughts, increase the maximum wind speed of cyclones, and cause sea levels to rise. The unavailability of low-cost, high-performance atmospheric carbon dioxide analyzers constrai ...

  3. Late Award- Nanocomposite Coatings for Low-Cost Motor Windings in Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 06g

    Electric vehicles, including hybrids in the nearer term, are the principal transportation technology by which the United States can become independent of foreign oil, can become energy independent overall, and can effect control over greenhouse emissions. For this to become reality, electric vehicle costs need to come down and performance needs to improve. For electric vehicle motors, the goals ...

  4. Direct Digital Secondary Electron Signal Acquisition Probe for Scanning Electron Microscope.

    SBC: SCIENCETOMORROW LLC            Topic: 08a

    ScienceTomorrow in collaboration with Dr. David C Joy, at the University of Tennessee Research is proposed to fabricate direct digital Quantitative Secondary Electron Detectors (QSED) for scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). If successful, commercial versions of the QSED would transform the SEM/STEM into a quantitative, metrological tool with enhanced capabilities that, in turn, would broaden re ...

  5. Novel flavonoids as anti-inflammatory agents in alcoholism

    SBC: NAPROGENIX, INC.            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Flavonoids are ubiquitous secondary metabolites in plants with many known health benefits, which are mostly ascribed to their potent anti-oxidant activity. However, a search for novel nicotinic ligands, using high throughput pharmacological screening of a native plant extract library, and subsequently a pure flavonoid library, led to the highly surprising con ...

  6. Rapid Point-of-Care Salivary Diagnostic for Periodontal Health

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: NIDCR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The dental profession has searched for many years for additional real time chair-side measures to provide objective measures to aid in the monitoring of periodontal health and early diagnosis of disease. Research efforts have produced solid evidence that constituents present in saliva can provide important complimentary diagnostic information, and have the po ...

  7. Novel reporter cell lines for neurotoxicant assays

    SBC: TRANSPOSAGEN BIOPHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While it has been demonstrated that gene mutations are associated with an increasing number of neurodegenerative syndromes, environmental neurotoxicants remain a key factor in the etiology of many such diseases. For example, exposure to pesticides such as maneb and paraquat increase the risk of developing Parkinson's disease. Unfortunately, there is no opt ...

  8. Novel Hydrocyanine Probes for the Accurate Detection of Reactive Oxygen Species

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are involved in numerous cell-signaling pathways. They have been implicated in over 150 diseases including cancer, arthritis, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, myocardial infarction and atherosclerosis. The need to understand the role of ROS in these processes is evidenced by the 80,000 publications in this field during the last ...

  9. Development of TransApical to Aorta Double Lumen Cannula for a Neonate LVAD

    SBC: W-Z BIOTECH LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support allows the neonate with congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathy to grow to a larger body weight that is more feasible for complex surgical correction or heart transplant.A paracorporeal LVAD, the Berlin heart ExCor, is FDA-approved for pediatric application. Although this device is outside the body, the outflow g ...
