  1. H2S and CH4 air quality monitor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and methane (CH4) are two of the major pollutants associated with animal waste and sewage. Their release to the atmosphere has consequences both locally, where H2S can be present at toxic levels that influence human health and quality of life, and globally, where CH4 acts as a greenhouse gas to influence climate change. Southwest Sciences proposes to develop a compact, inexp ...

  2. 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. ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Novel reporter cell lines for neurotoxicant assays


    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 ...

  7. Comprehensive Assessment of Retinal Vasculature (CARV)

    SBC: Visionquest Biomedical LLC            Topic: NEI

    Summary Teleretinal programs have expanded in recent years, primarily to screen for diabetic retinopathy. Accurate and consistent assessment of the retinal vasculature, which often sustains damage as a result of cardiovascular disease, would advance teleretinal screening in terms of robustness and cost. Unfortunately, assessing changes to the retinal vasculature and quantifying abnormalities in re ...
