SUMMARY: Health Resources and Services Administration [FR Doc. 2013–27790 Filed 11–19–13; 8:45 am] National Institutes of Health, HHS. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Surgical Tool for Ocular Tissue Transplantation Description of Technology: The invention pertains to a device for delivering in a precise and controlled way a piece of tissue or sheet of cells into the eye such that manipulation of and damage to the tissue, cells, and eye are minimized. The device features a handle with actuating means, a stationary needle extending from the handle to the distal tip, and a pair of grasping arms at the distal tip configured for holding tissue or a sheet of cells. An outer tip needle is slidably disposed along a length the stationary needle. When the outer tip needle is disposed over the pair of grasping arms, the arms are collapsed. When the outer tip needle is withdrawn away from the grasping arms, the arms are expanded. The outer tip needle, when disposed over the grasping arms, also allows for protection of the tissue or sheet of cells during surgical manipulation. Potential Commercial Applications: • Ocular transplantation • Ocular surgery Competitive Advantages: Can perform transplantation of micron-sized tissue or cell grafts.

High-Affinity Dopamine D3 Receptor Antagonists and Partial Agonists Description of Technology: Investigators at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) have synthesized a novel class of dopamine D3 receptor ligands using click chemistry. These novel compounds contain a triazole instead of an amide group between the primary and secondary pharmacophore. Although the amide linker has been shown to be essential for high affinity and selectivity in certain D3 receptor ligands, NIDA investigators have determined that the triazole linker maintains desired D3 receptor-binding functionality, and may improve bioavailability because of its resistance to metabolic amidases. Potential Commercial Applications: • Therapeutic agent for substance abuse (such as alcohol, nicotine, cocaine, methamphetamine, opioids) • Therapeutic agent for cognitive disorders (such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, dyskinesia, depression) • Therapeutic agent for restless legs syndrome Competitive Advantages: • Higher affinity for the dopamine D3 receptor • Improved bioavailability Development Stage: Early-stage. Inventors: Amy H. Newman, Ashwini Banala, Thomas M. Keck (all of NIDA). Intellectual Property: HHS Reference No. E–086–2013/0—US Application No. 61/788,167 filed 15 March 2013.
