Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-13-234
Budget: 09/01/14 - 02/28/15

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hernia repair is one of the most frequently performed surgical operations in the United States with approximately 800,000 procedures performed annually. The vast majority of these repairs employ a "tension- free" repair technique which involves the use of synthetic surgical meshes. Existing mesh technology is...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 09/01/10 - 08/31/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bioswellable Absorbable Monofilament Sutures Abstract Phase I study was intended and did demonstrate the feasibility of applying a new concept in macromolecular chain design to develop novel, synthetic, bioswellable, absorbable, compliant, coated and uncoated monofilament sutures. In effect, results of Phase ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 06/01/10 - 11/30/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hernial repair is the most frequent operation in general surgery for which synthetic meshes are commonly used in repairing abdominal defects. Frequently used meshes consist of non-absorbable polymers such as polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, or polytetrafluoroethylene. Recently established modificati...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 08/07/09 - 06/06/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Since early development of polymethyl methacrylate bone cement (PMMA-BC), there have been many efforts to develop alternative compositions to circumvent some of its clinical shortcomings, which include (1) monomer cytotoxicity;(3) inability to form strong joint at the tissue-cement interface;and (3) being a p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/07 - 08/31/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phase I study was intended and did demonstrate feasibility of developing synthetic polyester monofilament sutures as alternatives to surgical gut sutures (SGS) with preferred properties in term of initial mechanical properties, strength retention profile, and tissue reactivity. Phase I results showed that (1)...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 04/01/07 - 09/30/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most mechanical ligations of living tissues using surgical sutures require a combination of a thread and needle combination. In most cases, the needle diameter far exceeds that of the suture, which can result in leakage of bodily fluids, including blood, through needle-created holes about implanted suture thr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/15/06 - 08/31/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phase I study was intended and did demonstrate feasibility of developing synthetic polyester monofilament sutures as alternatives to surgical gut sutures (SGS) with preferred properties in term of initial mechanical properties, strength retention profile, and tissue reactivity. Phase I results showed that (1)...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phase I study directed toward minimizing or preventing post-operative adhesion (POA) demonstrated that (1) a drug-free, gel-forming copolyester vehicle is more effective than hyaluronic acid (HA); (2) HA-based formulations are generally less effective than their non-aqueous copolyester, gel-forming counter...
