Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 03/01/10 - 02/29/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): New diagnostic tests are needed for the early detection of acute stroke. Elevated plasma free fatty acids (FFA) are an early marker of stroke, but current methods to measure FFA are too slow to be used for stroke detection. In contrast, measurements of the unbound fraction of plasma FFA (FFAu) can be complete...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 03/01/08 - 02/28/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Jaundice occurs in approximately 60% of newborns. When severe, the elevated blood levels of bilirubin (hyperbilirubinemia) associated with jaundice pose a significant risk for neurological damage. Current diagnostic tests for severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia do not correlate well with bilirubin encephalopat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/05 - 03/14/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current diagnostic tests for severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia do not correlate well with bilirubinencephalopathy in newboms, contributing to uncertainty in the management of jaundiced infants. To address this problem, a new bilirubin assay will be developed to determine the serum concentration of free uncon...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/15/01 - 07/31/02

DESCRIPTION(Adapted from applicant's abstract): The long term goal of this application is to develop a simple blood-based assay for the early diagnosis of stroke. Although t-PA is an effective treatment for stroke it has been slow to be adopted, in part because it requires a diagnostic CT scan...

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/11/01 - 12/10/01

DESCRIPTION: (Applicant's abstract) The long term goal of this proposal is to develop a simple blood-based assay for the early diagnosis of myocardial ischemia. lschemic heart disease is the major cause of death in the United States. Current methods of diagnosis are either unreliable or complex and expensi...
