ABSTRACT: Protection of first responders who are exposed to hazards including chemical warfare agents (CWAs) is a very critical need. The need is derived from not only their welfare but their ability to respond, protect the community and provide logistical support to the response. A simple exposure monitor would provide critical information t...

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Agave BioSystems and Professor Makoto Kuro-o at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center are proposing a collaborative effort to screen for novel small molecules acting as agonists or antagonists of the Klotho and Klotho- dependent endocrine Fibroblast Growth Factors. The expected outcome of this P...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-118
Budget: 10/20/08 - 04/19/09

The key to effective management of malaria is accurate diagnosis that is also rapid. The gold standard microscopy is time-consuming and labor-intensive and suffers from retirement of microscopic diagnostic experts and inaccurate slide reading. A field-deployable diagnostic method that is specific for the different malaria parasites and is ca...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-T030
Budget: 09/28/08 - 10/29/10

Deployed armed forces often have to rely on water that is produced from decentralized sources, which presents significant difficulties for assuring the water is free of chemical toxicants. Analysis of these water supplies often requires complex instrumentation that is not practical for field use. An innovative alternative is the use of cell-base...

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T035
Budget: 07/16/08 - 02/28/09

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) are responsible for fatal neurodegenerative diseases in humans, cattle, and sheep/goats. As TSEs can take many months and even years to present clinical symptoms, it is critical for food and contact safety to diagnose the disease at the earliest possible time point. A cell culture based system can...

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD08-108
Budget: 05/28/08 - 11/28/08

Given the possibility to administer prophylactic doses of protein bioscavengers inactivating OP nerve agents before they reach their acetylcholinesterase target, much attention has been given to proteins such as human butyrylcholinesterase and paraoxonase I. As small nucleic acid catalysts can exhibit triphosphoesterase activities, the identifi...
