  • Patent number: 7602106
    Abstract: A new and improved piezoelectric device package that can withstand pressures of at least 25,000 psi, high temperatures of at least 300° C., as well as acidic and caustic environments, such as often encountered in oil and gas wells. The package is comprised of a hermetically sealed piezoelectric device header with an internal cavity for mounting various types of piezoelectric devices, an impedance matching network, an antenna, and a protective radome outer cover. The internal structure of the device package is for the most part solid with the exception of an approximate 1-micron space above the surface of the piezoelectric device to allow acoustic waves a path to travel. The general shape of the piezoelectric device package is typically that of a round disk that can be installed and secured by attaching fingers or other means in a bored cavity of a tool, pipe, or other piece of equipment.

  • Patent number: 7543368
    Abstract: A flexible connector comprises a length of corrugated tubing having a distal end and an end piece having a proximal end. The proximal end of the end piece is engaged with the distal end of the length of corrugated tubing and a length of polymeric tubing is utilized to initially retain the end piece and the length of corrugated tubing in engagement with one another. A length of mesh tubing may be extended along the length of corrugated tubing and around the exterior of the length of polymeric tubing. A sleeve is positioned in alignment with the length of polymeric tubing, with the proximal end of the end piece, and with the distal end of the length of corrugated tubing. The sleeve is crimped to permanently retain the proximal end of the end piece in engagement with the distal end of the length of corrugated tubing.

  • Patent number: 7507703
    Abstract: A method of cancer screening comprising the steps of administering the Blood CA 27,29 testing procedure; if the result is positive administering a mammogram; if the result is positive administering a needle biopsy; if the result is positive administering a PET scan; if the result is positive administering a blood tumor cell count. If all of the foregoing steps are positive, the cancer is treated by applying imiquimod transdermally to rotating sites, preferably by mixing ALDARA™ (imiquimod) 5% cream with an equal amount of H base cream™; administering a vaccine that induces production of tumor necrosis factor, preferably the BCG vaccine; and orally administering VALTREX™ valacyclovir twice daily. The foregoing treatment method is also effective in treating Type I diabetes, MS, and other epidermal cancers.
