Injectable Joint Lubricant for Treating Osteoarthritis (00-001)
This dextran-based hydrogel uses phospholipid delivery to treat degenerative joint diseases, also known as osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, affecting over 27 million Americans over the age of 25. It becomes more common with age, often affecting the neck, lower back, knees, and hips. Normally synovial fluid, a nat...

Smart Blending (Chaotic Mixing)
Smart blending machines make possible for the first time the deliberate and controlled formation of specific microscopic or nano-scale structures in plastics that are associated with enhanced physical properties or functionalities. Due to controlled formation, research and development can be accelerated and characteristics of products can be effic...

Ultrahydrophobic Self-cleaning Materials & Surfaces
Many materials – fibers, metals, synthetics and textiles – can have improved performance with the ability to repel water and contaminants. This technology provides a process for the modification of material exteriors by the addition of nano-sized or micro-sized particles to create the “lotus effect” – a surface that in...

Specialized Wicking Fiber Bundles for 3-D Tissue Engineering Systems
This invention is an enhancement to an engineered tissue system that may be used in drug discovery, vaccine development, biomaterial development or developmental cell biology. The enhancement allows biologically relevant tissues to be grown ex vivo. This invention uses lobed/channeled fibers, where lobed/channeled indicates a non-circular cross-sec...

Surface Treatment of Polymeric and Inorganic Surfaces
Current surface modification technologies do not provide a universal technique that works on all surfaces. This patented technology features an efficient method for permanent surface modification of polymeric and inorganic material and devices using the concept of a “loops” and “tails” configuration of the primary reactive p...
