  • Publication number: 20190388360
    Abstract: The invention relates to a pharmaceutical patch comprising a Lidocaine constituent and a Diclofenac constituent, wherein the relative weight content ratio of the Lidocaine constituent to the Diclofenac constituent is within the range of from about 7:1 to about 4:1, based on the equivalent weight of the non-salt form of Lidocaine and of Diclofenac, for use in the local treatment or prevention of pain, wherein the pain is neuropathic pain or wherein the pain has a neuropathic pain component. The pharmaceutical composition is suitable for topical administration and local pharmacological action via delivery of Lidocaine and Diclofenac into the skin and possibly also through and to other deeper tissues such as the synovial fluid without significant systemic exposure.

  • Publication number: 20190155875
    Abstract: A binary-coded structure document, (e.g., in an EXI format which is based on a structure document designed in a text-based description language, such as XML), is provided with a binary-coded index document, which is based on a structural part of the structure document. A storage representation of the binary-coded index document is stored in a working storage unit of the device, and the binary-coded structure document is stored in a background storage unit assigned to the device. A processing operation or a request by at least one processing process is carried out by accessing the storage representation of the binary-coded index document via an object interface, and in certain examples, fragments of the binary-coded structure document are loaded into the working storage unit by the object interface.

  • Patent number: 10251153
    Abstract: A communication device includes a transceiver unit for receiving from a central installation a broadcast message containing information for initiating communication between the communication device and the central installation, and a control unit for selecting a hardware address for the communication device in response to the information contained in the broadcast message. The selected hardware address can be used for addressing the communication device for messages from the central installation. The transceiver unit is designed to communicate with the central installation using the selected hardware address for the duration of a session. The control unit is designed to delete the selected hardware address after the duration of the session has expired. Selecting a hardware address randomly and deleting the hardware address after the session has expired allows communication between the communication device and the central installation, while maintaining the identity of the communication device anonymous.

  • Patent number: 10077719
    Abstract: A device for bleeding compressor air in a turbofan engine includes a low-pressure compressor of a primary duct, a fan stator arranged in a secondary duct downstream of a fan, and an arrangement for discharging compressor air from the low-pressure compressor into the secondary duct. The arrangement includes air guiding devices to guide compressor air into the secondary duct upstream of the fan stator relative to the flow direction in the secondary duct, past the stator vanes of the fan stator in a separate duct in the axial direction and is only mixed with the air of the secondary duct downstream of the fan stator. The separate duct is formed by a plurality of hollow structures extending in the longitudinal direction each between two adjacent stator vanes of the fan stator, with the hollow structures having a closed circumference in cross-section.
