Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-15-269
Budget: 09/01/17 - 02/28/18

Project Summary Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death and number one cause of adult disability in the United States. The primary goal of ischemic stroke treatment is quickly restoring blood perfusion. However, studies have shown that this return of blood flow, while necessary, can also cause damage to local tissue. Hypothermia has been shown ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-12-088
Budget: 09/01/13 - 08/31/14

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The primary care goal during a heart attack is to quickly restore blood perfusion. Reperfusion, however, is paradoxical, while it enables organ survival;it also enables destructive biochemical processes. While numerous adjunctive therapies for acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) have been studied, innovative c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-10-050
Budget: 03/01/11 - 02/29/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Stroke is the 3rd leading cause of death and number one cause of adult disability in the United States. The primary goal of ischemic stroke treatment is quickly restoring blood perfusion. However, studies have shown that this return of blood flow, while necessary to bettering patient outcome, can cause damage...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-280
Budget: 03/01/09 - 02/28/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over one million acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) occur each year in the U.S. Percutaneous transluminal coronary intervention (PTCI) is the preferred treatment. Despite the overall effectiveness of PTCI, in the year following an initial heart attack, 30% of patients die. Animal and clinical studies have sho...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/05 - 06/30/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Stroke is the leading cause of serious disability in the U.S. While the neuroprotective power of hypothermia has been known decades, our ability to fully harness its protective power has not come easily. The objective of this project is to develop a cooling catheter that can rapidly cool the brain. Existing c...
