Antibiotic Microspheres For Treatment Of Infections And Osteomyelitis
More than 750,000 people in the United States have knees, hips, or shoulders replaced surgically each year. For about 30,000 of these patients the surgery results in osteomyelitis, a dangerous infection of the bone tissue. This infection results in repeat surgeries for repair, replacement, and sometimes even removal of the implant. To treat osteom...

MEMS Based Blood Coagulometer
Background: The field of thromboelastography includes various forms of testing the efficiency of coagulation in the blood. Measuring coagulation is of vital importance in both a surgical and anesthesiological setting, because it is used to diagnose and assess bleeding disorders, like hemophilia and Von Willebrand disease. Further, measuring...

Nanoporous and Mesoporous Substrates for Analytical Methods and Methods for Fractionation, Stabilization, and Storage of Biomolecules
Background: A common problem that arises during analysis of biological samples is interference due to highly abundant substances in the samples that can mask the existence of other substances in the mixture. Common examples of this issue are in samples of blood (serum/plasma) and saliva where high concentrations of albumin can create problems ...

Bone Graft Scaffolds with High-Strength and High-Porosity
Market: Damage to bone, whether caused by trauma or disease sometimes requires implantation of a scaffold to guide repair. Spinal fusions, reconstruction after cancer, and dental repairs are but a few examples of procedures that might utilize bone graft scaffolding. According to a March, 2009 PearlDiver Report, the bone graft substitute mar...

A Method for Generating Poroelastograms in Vivo
A METHOD FOR GENERATING POROELASTOGRAMS IN VIVO Background: Ultrasound elastograms in are generated by cross-correlating the sequentially-acquired post compression ultrasound data with the reference pre-compression ultrasound data, thus generating an image that allows for differentiation of tissues types, i.e. benign vs. malignant tumors. A ...
