  • Publication number: 20150216888
    Abstract: Filarial parasites Brugia, Wuchereria, Loa Loa and Onchocerca cause over 20 million infections worldwide and pose a significant social and economic burden in endemic areas. The invention provides compositions and methods to treat parasitic infections in animals and plants, and to kill and inhibit the replication of parasites in infected hosts. The methods can include administering to a host in need of treatment an effective antiparasitic amount of a composition comprising biodegradable polyanhydride microparticles or nanoparticles that encapsulate antiparasitic agents, optionally in combination with antibacterial agents. Through co-encapsulation of antiparasitic and antibacterial agents into the particles, the invention provides the ability to effectively kill parasitic helminthes, worms, and flukes, with up to a 40-fold reduction in the amount of drug used.

  • Publication number: 20150206207
    Abstract: A pricing rule is created for governing a manner in which pricing of cloud services is adjusted. The pricing rule includes pricing rule configuration information defining an outcome of the pricing rule when applied to cloud service prices and a pricing rule context defining a boundary within which the pricing rule must be implemented to thereby cause the pricing rule to be applied to the cloud service prices. The pricing rule configuration information can specify a pricing adjustment mode, a type of price upon which the pricing rule is to be applied, an entity to which the outcome of pricing rule is to be allocated, and a category of charge upon which the pricing rule is to be applied. The pricing rule context can include a context basis and one or more context basis selections.
