Novel Mosquito-Targeting Insecticide
ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY Globally in 2022, there were an estimated 249 million malaria cases and 608,000 malaria deaths in 85 countries. Malaria has been and continues to be a prominent health concern all over the world. In some areas, the method of defense against the vector, Anopheles gambiae, is profoundly limited. For example, many of those in sub-Saharan...

Nanoparticle-based Nicotine Nanovaccine
THE CHALLENGE: Tobacco smoking is one of the largest public health threats the world has ever faced and results in over seven million deaths annually world wide. Smoking cessation is a difficult and largely unsuccessful undertaking; only 3-5% of unassisted smokers are able to remain abstinent for more than six months, and the use of pharmacological...

Novel Electrolyte Formulation to Enhance Cardiac Function
­THE CHALLENGE There are over 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests each year, with each patient seen by EMS receiving a liter of crystalloid solution (usually 0.9% saline). Only about two thirds of those patients have a pulse return; the remainder die from the condition called pulseless electrical activity (PEA) or electromechanical disassociation....

New process for selective polysaccharide derivative oxidation
THE CHALLENGE Aqueous solubility and controllable release are essential for bioactive compounds. In the case of oral drug delivery, poor aqueous solubility of a drug can lead to low bioavailability. For poorly bioavailable drugs, higher doses are required to achieve a therapeutic concentration in systemic circulation. This can in turn have negative...

Residual Glioblastoma and Glioma Cell Capture
THE CHALLENGE Physical removal of tumors in most cases cannot eradicate all the cancerous cells in the affected area. The cells that are left behind are known as residual tumor cells due to their inability to be removed. Some of these residual cells are also resistant to chemotherapy which make them particularly threatening as this is the primary method...

Star, Branched, and Graft Polymers in Binders for Inkjet Additive Manufacturing for Personalized Dosage Tablets
THE CHALLENGE A major problem posed by the pharmaceutical industry is giving effective dosages while not giving excessive amounts of a particular drug. An estimated 80% of side effects in humans and animals are a direct result of inaccurate dosing because varying weights in patients. Additive manufacturing has emerged as a very promising method to...
