Additional Information on Eligibility
Information not provided
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) applications for support of projects that have the potential to improve the utility of magnetic resonance imaging as a method for quantitative determinations of tissue iron, especially in liver, heart and brain. A quantitative means of measuring body storage iron that would be non-invasive, safe, accurate and readily available would improve the diagnosis and management of patients with iron overload, including hereditary hemochromatosis, thalassemia major, sickle cell disease, aplastic anemia, myelodysplasia and other disorders. Magnetic resonance imaging potentially provides a useful and widely available technique for examining the three- dimensional distribution of excess iron in the body, but further research is needed to develop a way to make measurements quantitative.
