Treatment of central nervous system injuries through targeted reduction of neuroinflammation
BackgroundTraumatic injuries to the brain and spinal cord are a leading cause of death among young people. Patients who are fortunate to survive the initial injury often deal with lifelong neurological impairment. With incident rates on the rise, TBI and SCI are poised to become a major contributor to the global epidemiological and economic burde...

Biopsy Needle System to Prevent P. acnes Contamination
BackgroundInfections are a potentially devastating complication of any surgery. Amongst the most devastating are post-surgical joint infections caused by Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), now considered the major microbial cause of surgical implant failures. Without early diagnosis and intervention, these infections result in joint tissue necrosi...
Highly Specific Approach for Detection of Salivary Biomarkers of Zika Fever
Background Clinical symptoms of zika fever are non-specific. In pregnant women, ZIKV (zika virus) could cause fetal microcephaly. In addition, ZIKV not only appears to severely harm unborn children but is also hurting the economies of many South and Central American countries. For instance, The World Bank calculated that the global economic cost of...

Treatment of Compartment Syndrome
Background:Acute limb compartment syndrome is a potentially devastating complication of musculoskeletal trauma characterized by an increase in pressure within a closed osseofascial compartment resulting in muscle threatening and ultimately limb threatening ischemia. Pressure within a compartment rises to such a degree that tissue perfusion becomes ...

The Ling-6(HL) Test
Buy now:The CD is available for purchase - $50 per copy BUY NOWBackground:Amplification in the form of well-fitted hearing aids is an important habilitation tool for listeners with hearing loss. This requires audiologists to appropriately select, fit, verify and validate the hearing aid(s) with each listener. Historically, the aided audiogram has b...
Selective Brain Cooling Technology
BackgroundBrain cooling (hypothermia) has been shown to prevent brain injury (neuroprotection) from stroke, brain trauma and cardiac arrest in both animal models and patient studies. Currently, the main hurdles in the clinical application of hypothermia are: 1) most brain cooling methods also cool down the rest of the body with its associated compl...
Training System for Ear Pathologies
Background:Otolaryngology is the study and treatment of disorders of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT).Otoscopy is the visual examination of the ear canal and eardrum using an instrument called an otoscope for the purpose of diagnosing disease. It is routinely performed by primary caregivers, audiologists and surgeons. At present, trainees are taught...
The Desired Sensation Level Multi-stage [i/o] Algorithm
The Desired Sensation Level: DSL [i/o] algorithm was released to manufacturers in the late 1990s in the form of a dynamic loadable/linked library (DLL). We appreciate your support and want you to know that the money that we have received from manufacturers in the form of license fees for the DLL is put back into research, development and technical ...
miR-195 Antagomir Treatment of Sepsis
Background: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNA molecules encoded by eukaryotic nuclear DNA, on average 22 nucleotides long, that function in transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression via base-pairing with complementary sequences within mRNA molecules, usually resulting in gene silencing via translational repres...
Food-Grade Bacteria Species to Detoxify and Remove Heavy Metals from Humans
Background: There are many heavy metals in our environment, both naturally and from pollution. The term "heavy metal" applies to a group of metals with similar chemical properties. Some of these, including copper, iron and zinc, play important roles in our bodies, while others can have toxic effects. Examples of these are lead, which is f...
