Midwest Cancer Alliance: Partnership to Support Quality Cancer Care
Over 85% of cancer patients nationwide receive care in the community setting (NCI, 2007). In 2008, the Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA) launched with a vision of marshaling the exceptional cancer resources of the region to support the system of care...
Biomedical Tissue Engineering - Where We Go in the Future
Researchers and entrepreneurs examine breakthroughs in tissue engineering and regeneration that enhance healing, remodeling, and recovery.
Jump Starting and Moving New Technologies to Marketplace
The highway from research in the laboratory to market success has many detours and on/off ramps that are at best confusing to inventors and the populace. Success from technology-based economic development is the outcome ...
MU Biodesign and Innovation Program
of Engineering on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia recognizes the growing need to improve patient care and desire to impact this arena through the collaborative development of MUBIP. MUBIP goals are to successfully bring new medical technologies...
Do Patients with Craniosynostosis Have an Increased Incidence of Auditory Neuropathy as Newborns?
screening and, if patients were referred, diagnosis from audiologic diagnostic testing were obtained from the Missouri Department of Health. Institutional review board approval was obtained. PATIENTS: One hundred and thirty-five patients were identified...
Development of a Telemetry Unit for Wireless Monitoring of Bone Strain
A telemetry unit designed to monitor strain in bones is presented. This unit allows studying the relationship between bone load and bone mass in scenarios that were not possible with current setup. The current measuring setup employs a bench top...
Albuterol metered dose inhaler performance under hyperbaric pressures
INTRODUCTION: The stimulus for this presentation was an asthma attack suffered on the first dive by a victim of a severe industrial electrical burn. The patient's response to albuterol metered dose inhaler (MDI) treatment given at depth was felt...
An Intelligent Online System for Enhanced Recruitment of Patients for Clinical Research
The recruitment and retention of subjects for clinical research has been identified as one of the bottlenecks in the development of new drugs and treatments by the healthcare industry. The Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute has been...

Swab Test Using ELISA Technique for Diagnosis of Brown Recluse Bites
Envenomations by the brown recluse spider, Loxosceles reclusa, are a significant source of morbidity and occasional mortality in endemic regions of the United States, and misdiagnoses are common. A survey of physicians in the endemic area has shown...
Effects of Isoflurane on Plasma-Membrane Calcium ATPase
Introduction: Plasma membrane Ca2+-ATPase (PMCA) is a transmembrane enzymatic protein present in human neurons, myocytes, and RBCs which plays a role in controlling cellular Ca2+ levels by regulating intracellular ATP. Inhaled anesthetic agents...
A Comparative Study between Antibody and Peptide Conjugated Gold Nanoparticles for In Vivo Targeting of EGFR in Pancreatic Cancer Bearing Mice Models [abstract]

Development of a Capillary Blood Mail-in Kit for the Measurement of Hemoglobin A1c
be collected at home and mailed to a testing laboratory. We present the development of a stabilizing solution (SS) and mail-in kit for Hb A1c testing. With this kit, after a simple finger prick, a patient collects blood using a capillary tube. The blood...
Unprecedented protection of the retina from glaucoma-induced nerve damage by topical administration of a novel prodrug
The preclinical development of a prodrug-based site-specific delivery strategy that allows for targeting a potent small-molecule neuroprotectant into the eye, and with preference to the retina, after topical administration ...
Small Business Support for Youth Physical Activity Opportunities
Background: Increasing the number of youth physical activity opportunities (YPAO) (e.g., programs) may be a promising approach for encouraging physically active lifestyles among youth. To do this effectively, we need ...
Novel Nanostructured Organosilicate Nanoparticle Coatings for Chem-Bio Sensing [abstract]
We present novel nanostructured organosilicate particulate based films and demonstrate that these materials have a great potential for chemical-biological sensor development. With unprecedented high surface areas (> 1400 m2/g) and optical...
