  1. 064: Novel Technologies for Assessing Lipoprotein Sub-fractions

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Identifying cardiovascular risk factors and understanding the contribution of those risk factors for cardiovascular disease is critical. Identifying individuals at very high risk for CVD and aggressive intervention are a critical factor to minimize the population wide CVD burden. Determining low density lipoprotein (LDL) as well as high density lipoprotein (HDL) particle size distribution may prov ...

  2. 065: Computer Generated Diet and Exercise Reminders Promoting Cardiovascular Health

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Research has shown that an individual’s cardiovascular health is improved with daily exercise and a healthy diet, and work productivity benefits from improved health status. Computer-based reminders have been shown to improve compliance with targeted tasks. By combining these two proven techniques, the goal of this solicitation is to improve the cardiovascular health of program participants thro ...

  3. 066: Haptoglobin Treatment to Reduce Complications of Sickle Cell Disease

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    The release of hemoglobin into the circulation contributes to morbidity and mortality in intense hemolytic states such as sickle cell disease (SCD). Free hemoglobin related vascular reactivity, potentially through nitric oxide scavenging and oxidative stress associated with the iron moiety of heme likely result in pulmonary arterial hypertension, stroke and the acute chest syndrome in SCD. A gluco ...

  4. 067: Transmit-receive Surface Array Coils for MRI of Patients with Internal Conductive Devices

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has the potential to guide non-surgical cardiovascular interventional procedures because it can visualize soft tissue, guide positioning of therapeutic devices, and assess treatment outcome, all without ionizing radiation. To ensure that such procedures can be carried out effectively and safely it is essential to have devices (catheters, guidewires, etc.) that have ...

  5. 068: Multilayer-coated Gratings for Phase-Contrast Computed Tomography

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    In the United States computed tomography (CT) currently accounts for approximately 15% of all diagnostic imaging procedures. The number of CT scans has seen a threefold increase in the two decades leading to 2007 due to its unique capabilities. A CT scan produces high resolution, volumetric rendition of internal organs in a short period. CT scanners are relatively compact and economic to operate a ...

  6. 069: Wireless Physiologic Telemetry for Interventional MRI

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has potential to revolutionize minimally invasive surgery and interventional procedures by affording improved tissue visualization without conventional surgical incisions. Many such procedures will be conducted under both X-ray and MRI guidance. Such procedures require high fidelity hemodynamic recording of physiological signals such as electrocardiography and inva ...

  7. 070: Bioabsorbable Stents for Pediatric Pulmonary Artery Stenosis and Aortic Coarctation

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Mechanical stents to relieve obstructive cardiovascular lesions could have great utility in pediatric cardiology, but are unsuitable for small children. Commercially available stents limit vessel growth and require future surgical removal. Absorbable stents might revolutionize the treatment of congenital heart disease in children. Small children require small delivery systems for devices that are ...

  8. 071: Electrophysiologic Catheters for Interventional MRI Ablation of Ventricular Tachycardia

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Catheter-based ablation therapy is used to treat cardiac rhythm disorders. MRI may have value in targeting and assessing ablation lesions interactively during catheter based cardiac electrophysiology (EP) procedures. Real-time MRI EP ablation may be especially attractive to ablate mid-myocardial targets causing ventricular tachycardia in adults and children. While technically feasible, there are ...

  9. 4: NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON ALCOHOL ABUSE AND ALCOHOLISM (NIAAA)

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    The NIAAA supports research on the causes, prevention, control, and treatment of the major health problems of alcohol abuse, alcoholism, and alcohol-related disorders. Through its extramural research programs, the NIAAA funds a wide range of basic and applied research to develop new and/or improved technologies and approaches for increasing the effectiveness of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention ...

  10. 044: Development of Novel Compounds to Treat Alcohol Use Disorders

    Release Date: 08-25-2011Open Date: 08-25-2011Due Date: 11-07-2011Close Date: 11-07-2011

    Efforts to develop medications for alcohol use disorders have expanded rapidly in recent years. Developing novel compounds for alcohol treatment is high priority for NIAAA Medications Development Program. Three agents directed at the addictive behavior in the use of alcohol —disulfiram, naltrexone, and acamprosate—are now approved for use in the United States and many other countries. Recently ...
