  • Patent number: 10322251
    Abstract: A multi-night titration (MNT) process to find an optimal single therapeutic pressure of a CPAP device. This single therapeutic pressure can then be used on an on-going basis by the patient after the titration period. The MNT process differs from current auto adjusting processes used for titration (or ongoing use) in that the MNT process does not respond locally by adjusting pressures to individual events. With existing devices, the continuous adjustment of supplied air pressure always responds to one or a small number of events and thus fails to compensate for a patient's adaptation thereto, resulting in the supply of a less than optimal therapeutic pressure to the patient. While auto adjusting processes often capture and respond well to short-term and transient conditions, the MNT process of the current disclosure seeks to capture long term trends and find the most suitable average single pressure for a patient.

  • Publication number: 20190162803
    Abstract: In a magnetic resonance (MR) apparatus, and model-based method, for identifying a nuclear spin-dependent attribute of a subject, MR signals are acquired in multiple repetitions of an MR data acquisition sequence that is changed from repetition-to-repetition so as to deliberately encode effects of magnetization transfer between nuclear spins into the acquired MR signals. A model is generated, composed of at least two molecule pools, in which a single magnetization transfer parameter is used that is derived from the MR signals in which the magnetization transfer is encoded. A nuclear spin-dependent attribute of the subject is then identified, by comparing at least one MR signal evolution from the subject to at least one signal evolution produced by the model.

  • Patent number: 10226435
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods of treating humans and animals with terpenes and terpenoids in order to restore the stratum granulosum and stratum corneum and treat a dermatological disease, such as, for instance atopic dermatitis. More specifically it provides terpenes and terpenoids such as monoterpenoids, sesquiterpenes and norisoprenoids as ingredients that work to restore and thicken the stratum granulosum and stratum corneum and treat a dermatological disease. Terpenes and terpenoid compounds support the cell proliferation, cell differentiation, growth of skin, skin tissue and keratinocytes by upregulating genes for loricrin filaggrin, caspase 14, hornerin and other late cornified envelope components and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and downregulation of matrix metalloproteinases. Both terpenes and terpenoids may be applied topically or orally at oral or topical concentrations from about 0.
