  2. REGULATION OF BIOLOGICAL GROWTH

    SBC: Biogrowth Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO BE ABLE TO REGULATE ABNORMAL GROWTH PROCESSES THAT ARE RELATED TO SOMATOMEDINS. AS SOMATOMEDINS ARE THE MAJOR STIMULATORS OF BONE FORMATION, THEY OFFER PROMISE IN THE THERAPY OF POST- MENOPAUSAL OSTEOPOROSIS. THEY MAY ALSO BE USED TO STIMULATEBONE FORMATION AROUND PROSTHETIC JOINTS. THE STIMULATORY PROPERTIES OF SOMATOMEDINS MAY ALSO BE IMPORTANT IN HA ...

  3. LOW COST OCR READER FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED

    SBC: Energy Materials Research            Topic: N/A

    A LOW COST OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION DEVICE IS PROPOSED AS A PERIPHERAL FOR MICROCOMPUTERS. THE DEVICE IN CONJUNCTION WITH SPEECH OUTPUT WILL GIVE A LOW COST READING DEVICE AFFORDABLE BY VISUALLY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS. THE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY WILL FOCUS ON A FEASIBILITY DEMONSTRATION OF A LOW COST PHOTO-DETECTOR IN CONJUNCTION WITH TRANSPORTABLE "C" CODE. THE WIDER COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF T ...

  4. PRODUCTION OF COMPOSITE MONOCLONAL IMMUNOGLOBULINS

    SBC: NEUGENESIS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    MURINE MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES ARE NOT USEFUL FOR REPEATED ADMINISTRATION TO MAN BECAUSE OF THE NUMBER OF FOREIGN ANTIGEN DETERMINANTS THEY CONTAIN. PRODUCTION OF HUMAN MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES WOULD BE DESIR-ABLE FOR A VARIETY OF APPROACHES IN PROPHYLAXIS AND THERAPY OF DISEASE, AND ALSO IN PROTECTION AGAINST CONTACT WITH NOXIOUS AGENTS. WE PROPOSE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCEDURE THAT WILL PERMIT RAPID ISO ...

  5. SYNTHETIC HYBRIDIZATION PROBES FOR HERPES SIMPLEX TYPE 2

    SBC: Molecular Biosystems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG TERM GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP SYNTHETIC DNA HYBRIDIZATION PROBES TO DETECT VIRAL INFECTIONS. DNA HYBRIDIZATION HAS PROVEN HIGHLY EFFECTIVE IN DETECTING VIRUSES, BUT CURRENT METHODS FOR MAKING DNA HYBRIDIZATION PROBES ARE EXPENSIVE TO COMMERCIALIZE SINCE THEY DEPEND ON ENZYMATICALLY MODIFIED CLONED DNA. SYNTHETIC DNA PROBES, COMPLEMENTARY TO KNOWN SEQUENCES, ARE RELATIVELY INEXP ...

  6. PORTABLE FLUIDIC HIGH FREQUENCY JET VENTILATOR

    SBC: Nimbus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF RESEARCH WHICH INDICATES THAT HIGH FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION (HFJV) IS AN EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR MAINTAINING RESPIRATORY FUNCTION. WITH THIS TYPEOF APPROACH, THE NORMAL TIDAL VOLUME INSPIRATION/EXPIRATION CYCLE IS REPLACED WITH A SMALL HIGH FREQUENCY OSCILLATORY FLOW ADMINISTERED DIRECTLY TO THE AIRWAY BY A SMALL PERCUT- ANEOUS ACCESS. THE HIGH FREQUENCY VENTILATION ...

  7. AN INTERACTIVE BIOMEDICAL IMAGE PROCESSOR/ANALYZER

    SBC: American Innovision, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT MORPHOMETRY AND IMAGE ANALYSIS SYSTEMS CAN BE BROADLY DIVIDED INTO THOSE WHICH DISPLAY AN IMAGE AND REQUIRE THE USER TO TRACE THE POINTS OR LINES CONSIDERED SIGNIFICANT, AND THOSE WHICH APPLY COMPLEX ALGORITHMS TO LOCATE SIGNIFICANT OBJECTS AUTONOMOUSLY. WE SEE A NEED FOR AN INTERMEDIATE TYPE OF SYSTEM IN WHICH THE USER COULD RAPIDLY INDICATE THE APPROXIMATE LOCATION OF SIGNIFICANT OBJECTS ...

  8. SOFTWARE FOR GUIDING & ASSESSING FAMILY INTERACTION

    SBC: ASIP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BOARD GAMES DESIGNED TO TRAIN PARENTS, CHILDREN, AND MARRIED COUPLES IN PROBLEM-SOLVING, COMMUNICATION AND NEGOTIATION SKILLS HAVE BEEN FOUND EFFECTIVE AS THERAPEUTIC, PREVENTATIVE, AND BASIC INFORMATION GATHERING DEVICES. PHASE I OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT HAS THREE SPECIFIC AIMS: 1. DEVELOP THREE INTERACTIVE COMPUTER SOFTWARE PACKAGES THAT WILL RETAIN THE THERAPEUTIC VALUE OF THE ORIGINAL BOARD GAM ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ILLUSTRATIVE MICROCOMPUTER DATA ARCHIVE

    SBC: Sociometrics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN ELECTRONIC TECHNOLOGY HAVE THE POTENTIAL OF RADICALLY IMPACTING BOTH THE MANNER IN WHICH SOCIAL SCIENCE DATA ARE ANALYZED AND THE DEGREE TO WHICH THESE DATA ARE UTILIZED. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE DRAMATIC DECREASES IN COST AND INCREASES IN ACCESSIBILITY THAT WILL BE BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE IMMINENT IMPLEMENTATION ON A PERSONAL COMPUTER OF A MAJOR MAINFRAM ...

  10. BLOOD CELL WASHING USING SHEAR CENTRIFUGATION

    SBC: Hemascience Laboratorytorie            Topic: N/A

    DEMANDS FOR WASHED RED BLOOD CELLS IS INCREASING. THIS IS IN PART TO AWARENESS OF TRANSFUSION RELATED DISEASE SUCH AS HEPATITIS AND ACQUIRED IMMUNE DEFICIENCY SYNDROME (AIDS). EXISTING TECHNOLOGY FOR CELL WASHING IS INEFFICIENT IN THAT A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF FINAL WASHED PRODUCT IS OFTEN LOST IN THE PROCESS. THIS PROPOSAL AIMS TO INVESTIGATE THE EXTENSION TO CELL WASHING OF A NEW CORE TECHNOLOGY ...
