  • Patent number: 10098345
    Abstract: A disinfestation sheet includes a carrier layer with a first and second surface with active pesticidal particles formed therein. The active pesticidal particles contain pesticidal ingredients selected from pyrethroid family or the like. The carrier layer has channels formed therein. The channels form one or more paths between one or more pesticidal particles and at least one of the first and the second surfaces to allow diffusion of the active pesticidal ingredient from the pesticidal particles to at least one of the first and the second surfaces of the carrier layer. The disinfestation sheet may further comprise antioxidant compounds. The disinfestation sheet may also have a base layer attached to the second surface of the carrier layer, an adhesive grip layer attached to the base layer and a support layer attached to the grip layer, where in the support layer is detachable. The carrier layer may also comprise ridges extending outwardly from the second surface.

  • Patent number: 10085443
    Abstract: This invention relates to the application of herbicides in sewer liens to kill tree roots inside the lines and preventing re-growth into the lines for years after application. It relates to the discovery that latex polymers, organosilicone surfactants, deposition agents and other surfactants can be used to “glue” the herbicides to pipe surfaces. This discovery allows the use of plant killing herbicides to treat roots in sewer lines—killing them—which results in their subsequent removal by decay and erosion processes. It also allows for the use of the herbicides to prevent regrowth back into the sewer lines by applying the herbicides in a compound which adheres to the sewer line surfaces and forms a long term coating on the pipe and joint surfaces where the roots might attempt to grow back in. The compound resists erosion and washing away preventing long term root re-infestations in the sewer lines.

  • Patent number: 10060934
    Abstract: A method for screening a patient for angioinhibition resistance and treating said patient having a disease susceptible to treatment via an anti-angiogenic agent. The screening method includes an assay for identifying the presence of angioinhibition resistance in patients by collecting patient blood or serum and subjecting it to a Chick Chorioallantoic Membrane (CAM) angiogenesis assay configured for accepting a human tumor wherein the human tumor xenograft includes a vasculature system. The screening method and assay further includes steps that include using the CAM results for identifying the endogenous pro-angiogenic non-peptide hormone concentrations of the blood sample by calculating the vascular activity of the vasculature system of the human tumor xenograft in the presence of anti-angiogenic drugs and inducing in the patient, a state of subclinical hypothyroidism prior to commencing anti-angiogenic treatment.
