  • Patent number: 10886537
    Abstract: A current collector for use in an electrochemical cell is provided. The current collector comprises: a reticulated core comprising a polymer and having continuous porosity; a first reticulated surface; a second reticulated surface opposite said first reticulated surface; and a thin metal film disposed on at least one of said first and second reticulated surfaces, wherein said current collector has continuous porosity. A high temperature resistant polymer is preferred for the reticulated core where the current collector may be exposed to high temperatures during production or use. The continuous porosity of the reticulated core 12 and the current collector allows for passage of electrolyte and ions, as necessary for operation of an electrochemical device that includes the current collector.

  • Patent number: 10827591
    Abstract: An electronic reading device includes a mid-frame structure such that the mid-frame structure can include a reverse draft. A reverse draft corresponds to a back of the electronic reading device being a predetermined amount wider than a front of the electronic reading device. Additionally, a co-molded mid-frame stiffener provides a predetermined rigidity of the electronic reading device. The electronic reading device also includes a display integrated with the front of the mid-frame structure, wherein a space between the display and the mid-frame structure includes one or more electronic reading device components. Similarly, a back cover is integrated with the back of the mid-frame structure, wherein a space between the back cover and the mid-frame structure includes additional electronic reading device components.

  • Publication number: 20080069816
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention utilize a more efficient CDR grafting technique to generate humanized versions of the T84.66 antibody. The technique used to generate these antibodies utilizes crystallographic structural data to select an immunoglobulin framework having maximum structural overlap with a non-human donor molecule. This technique was used to develop humanized T84.66 antibodies exhibiting in vitro binding affinity and specificity for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) nearly identical to that of T84.66 and the ability to specifically target tumors expressing CEA in vivo.

  • Publication number: 20060269557
    Abstract: Prostate stem cell antigen (PSCA) is expressed in the majority of prostate cancer patients, making it an ideal target for cancer immunotherapy. Murine monoclonal antibody 1G8 binds to PSCA with nanomolar affinity, but its efficacy as a therapeutic agent is limited by the generation of a HAMA response. The present invention discloses humanized 1G8 antibodies in which the majority of the mouse-derived epitopes have been removed. These humanized antibodies bind PSCA with high affinity and specificity, and have been shown to reduce human bladder tumor take in a nude mouse model. These characteristics make the humanized antibodies of the present invention attractive agents for the treatment and detection of tumors expressing PSCA.

  • Patent number: 6410319
    Abstract: Genetically engineered, CD20-specific redirected T cells expressing a cell surface protein-having an extracellular domain comprising a receptor which is specific for CD20, an intracellular signaling domain, and a transmembrane domain. Use of such cells for cellular immunotherapy of CD20+ malignancies and for abrogating any untoward B cell function. In one embodiment, the cell surface protein is a single chain FvFc:&zgr; receptor where Fv designates the VH and VL chains of a single chain monoclonal antibody to CD20 linked by peptide, Fc represents a hinge-CH2-CH3 region of a human IgG1, and &zgr; represents the intracellular signaling domain of the zeta chain of human CD3. A method of making a redirected T cell expressing a chimeric T cell receptor by electroporation using naked DNA encoding the receptor.
