  1. AUTOMATED LARGE SCALE ANALYSIS OF HUMAN COSMID LIBRARIES

    SBC: Integrated Genetics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH PLAN IS TO DEVELOP METHODS TO RAPIDLY SCREEN, ISOLATE, AND CHARACTERIZE COSMID CLONES FROM HUMAN DNA LIBRARIES. IN PHASE I WE WILL ESTABLISH PROCEDURES FOR USING A ROBOTIC WORKSTATION TO AUTOMATE THE SCREENING OF A COSMID LIBRARY PREPARED FROM A SOMATIC CELL HYBRID THAT CONTAINS HUMAN CHROMOSOME 21. WE WILL ALSO OPTIMIZE THE USE OF AN INSTRUMENT THAT CAN DIRE ...

  2. CHROMOSOME SIGNPOSTS FOR GENE MAPPING

    SBC: Integrated Genetics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG-TERM GOAL IS TO CLONE A SET OF DNA MARKERS SPACED EVERY 5 CENTIMORGANS ALONG THE HUMAN GENOME. TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL, A NOVEL APPROACH HAS BEEN DEVISED TO GENERATE A SET OF NATURALLY SPACED CHROMOSOMAL SIGNPOSTS. THESE SIGNPOSTS WILL ALLOW RAPID CHROMOSOME ASSIGNMENT AND REGIONAL LOCALIZATION OF UNMAPPED SEQUENCES AND GENES. FUTHERMORE, IT IS BELIEVED THAT THIS STRATEGY WILL FACILITATE ORD ...

  4. IMPROVED INFANT NUTRITIONAL FORMULATIONS

    SBC: Lipid Specialties Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT LONG CHAIN POLYUNSATURATED ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS SUCH AS GAMMA LINOLENIC ACID (GLA), EICOSAPENTAENOIC ACID (EPA), AND DOCOSAHEXAENOIC ACID (DHA) ARE PRESENT IN VERY HIGH CONCENTRATIONS IN HUMAN BREAST MILK. IN DEVELOPING NEW AND IMPROVED INFANT FORMULAS, THERENOW APPEARS TO BE A CRITICAL NEED FOR INCLUSION OF GLA, EPA,AND DHA AS NUTRIENTS FOR THE NEONATE. HOWEVER, TO DO SO O ...

  5. DRUG THERAPY FOR HYPERCALCEMIA/BONE RESORPTION

    SBC: MACROCHEM CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT DRUG THERAPY FOR HYPERCALCEMIC DISEASES INVOLVING BONE RESORPTION IS OF LIMITED EFFECTIVENESS. PRELIMINARY ANIMAL TESTING HAS SHOWN BENZO(B)THIOPHENE-2-CARBOXYLIC ACID(THIONAPTHENECARBOXYLIC ACID, TNCA) TO BE OF POTENTIAL USE IN INHIBITING BONE RESORPTION. OVERALL PROJECT GOALS ARE TO DEVELOP TNCA AND ITS DERIVATIVES AS NOVEL THERAPEUTIC ENTITIES IN THE TREATMENT OF HYPERCALCEMIA OF MALIGN ...

  6. MICROWAVE STERILIZER FOR CAPD STERILIZER

    SBC: MERIDIAN MEDICAL SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    ACUTE OR CHRONIC FAILURE OF THE KIDNEYS RESULTS IN RAPID DEATH UNLESS NORMAL KIDNEY FUNCTION IS REPLACED BY DIALYSIS.DIALYSIS PURIFIES THE BLOOD IN A SELECTIVE WAY, REMOVING TOXIC SUBSTANCES VIA A SEMI-PERMEABLE MEMBRANE, OR FILTER. HEMODIALYSIS EMPLOYS AN ARTIFICIAL EXTRACORPOREAL MEMBRANE WHICH NOT ONLY RESTRICTS THE FREEDOM OF THE PATIENT, BUT IS ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH VARIOUS SIDE EFFECTS. PERIT ...

  8. CERAMIC MATERIALS FOR IMPROVED CONTACT LENSES

    SBC: Merix Corp            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS PROGRAM, THIN SHEETS OF OPTICALLY CLEAR, CERAMIC MATERIALS WILL BE PRODUCED AND FABRICATED INTO LENSES FOR EVALUATION AS CONTACT LENS MATERIALS. THE MATERIALS WILL PERMIT HIGH OXYGEN FLUX TO AND FROM THE CORNEA, PREVENTING ATOXIA AND SHOULD HAVE HIGH WETTABILITY. THEY WILL ALSO BE STRONG, HARD AND RESISTANT TO HARD LENS CLEANING SOLUTIONS. INITIAL EVALUATION WILL INCLUDE OPTICAL PROPERTIES ...
