This is a revised application. Studies performed in phase I SBIR grants #1R43DK55385-01A1 and #1R43DK 59062-01A1 have proven in vitro the concepts advanced in phase I: (a) contrary to common belief, the single jet of the current venous needle (CVN) causes high turbulence inside the vascular access, (b) a new hemodialysis venous needle (NVN) with...

Topic:
Budget: 05/01/02 - 04/30/03

Description (provided by applicant): This application is re-submitted as Phase I instead of Fast Track per recommendation of reviewers. The Phase I is to perform preliminary tests of new designs of the polytetrafluoroethylene graft (PTFEG) used as vascular access for hemodialysis, in a setting simulating hemodialysis (inside a prototype of the n...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/99 - 08/31/00

The specific aim of Phase I of the project is to perform preliminary tests of a new metal needle designed for use a venous needle (VN) with two- needle hemodialysis (U.S. Patient #5,662,619) in a setting simulating hemodialysis (inside a prototype of a vascular access, using flow rates of the VN and of the vascular access similar to the one foun...
