Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-280
Budget: 06/01/09 - 07/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the single most common cause of death in the United States. Although the study of the CVD has greatly benefited from the use of gene-targeted transgenic mouse models, these small rodents do not accurately reflect human cardiovascular physiology. The Rabbit would be an excellent...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 09/05/07 - 02/28/09
PI: Jie Xu

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The rabbit is a good animal model for the study of many human diseases because of its anatomical, genetic and biochemical similarities to the human. It is also used for drug screening, production of antibody and production of therapeutic proteins. The rabbit is large enough to provide adequate quantities of t...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/01/06 - 04/30/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of the proposed research is to develop methods to create immune protected universal donor cloned transgenic pigs for xenotransplantation. According to the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS) more than 30,000 organ transplants are performed in the US alone, yet greater than 95,000 people are cur...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Embryos with predetermined sex will obviously double the female calving efficiency in dairy industry. The ultimate goal of the project is to development an efficient system for the large scale production of sex predetermined cattle embryos using several emerging technologies including sperm sorting by flow cytometry, IVF and rapid-cooling cryopr...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/26/05 - 03/31/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The development of transgenic mouse models for cystic fibrosis (CF) has been an important contribution to our understanding of CF and of CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) function. However, because of the dissimilarity between mouse and human anatomy and physiology, there are limitations in what c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

In natural reproduction, the sex ratio is approximately 50:50. In the dairy industry, only female animals (and very few male stud bulls) are productive and most male calves are slaughtered with little financial return to the farmers. This natural limitation costs the dairy industry billions of dollars around the globe. Selecting sex of offspring...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/17/04 - 03/16/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term objectives of proposed study is to produce transgenic/knockout(KO) rabbits as model animals for human cardiovascular disease (CVD) and other diseases. Rabbit has been long recognized a better CVD model animal than mouse and rat, however transgenic/KO rabbit production is hampered largely by low ...
