Stanford University Wins Five-Year $1.73 Billion New Contract

U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry awarded a five-year, $1.73 billion new contract to Stanford University to manage and operate SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, CA. The award continues Stanford's record as contractor for the management and operations (MandO) contract for the laboratory, which has been operated by the University since its founding in 1962. The new contract contains a number of innovative provisions recommended in response to the Department's Commission to Review the Effectiveness of the National Energy Laboratories instruction to identify opportunities to use improved contracting mechanisms to more effectively and efficiently manage the national laboratories. The DOE has engaged with Stanford to pilot a number of these new mechanisms.

CHF Solutions' Aquadex Flexflow Aquapheresis System Receives Fda IDE Approval

CHF Solutions Inc. has announced that researchers in the Stanford University School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics have received FDA Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) approval to conduct a clinical study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of CHF Solutions' Aquadex FlexFlow Aquapheresis System for diuretic-resistant fluid overload in children with acute decompensated heart failure. The randomized multi-center, non-blinded clinical study will assess up to 45 children and young adults ages 6 months to 21 years with heart failure and diuretic-resistant fluid overload. Heart failure is a cause of death in children with cardiomyopathy and congenital heart disease. The study seeks to determine whether Aquapheresis therapy is associated with greater weight loss and a non-inferior rate of renal dysfunction compared to optimal medical therapy. In addition, the impact on heart failure symptoms using a novel pediatric heart failure symptoms score developed by the investigators, adverse outcomes and the need for medical management will be evaluated as secondary endpoints.
