Bengt Gustavsson has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: The use of tetrahydrofolate, methylene-tetrahydrofolate and/or methyl-tetrahydrofolate, and at least one multi-targeting antifolate, for the manufacture of a pharmaceutical composition for the treatment of cancer is disclosed. By combining the multi-targeting antifolate with tetrahydrofolate, methylene-tetrahydrofolate and/or methyl-tetrahydrofolate, it is possible to remarkably reduce toxic side-effects without diminishing the anti-tumour action of the drugs. A pharmaceutical composition, a kit comprising the pharmaceutical composition as well as a method for the treatment of cancer are also disclosed.
Abstract: Apparatuses, methods and computer program products involving playing music by means of portable communication apparatuses, e.g. mobile telephones, as instruments. According to an embodiment of the invention, a method for generating music data in a portable communication apparatus is provided. A first stream of music data from a first music data generator and a second stream of music data from a second music data generator are received by means of a mixer device of the portable communication apparatus. Furthermore, the first and the second streams of music data are mixed to a third stream of music data. The third stream of music data is fed to a music data player of the portable communication apparatus for playing the third stream of music data.

Abstract: The invention relates to a resource management system and method for handling of devices with features incorporated in an apparatus, such as a mobile telephone, but implemented as separate entities and controlled through interfaces. The resource management system includes an interface proxy arranged to manage the availability of features and communication to the respective entity. The resource management system includes a managing device connectable through a physical interface to at least one entity comprising a number of feature devices. The interface proxy is associated with at least one entity for cooperation with the apparatus; and the interface proxy is adapted to handle resource allocation of the feature devices.

Abstract: A control cord for connecting an auxiliary device to a portable electronic device is provided. The control cord includes a flexible longitudinal housing and a plurality of electrical conductors extending from one end of the housing to which the auxiliary device will be connected, to an other end of the housing. In addition, the control cord includes a connector affixed to the other end of the housing and configured to connect the plurality of electrical conductors to the portable electronic device to enable operation of the portable electronic device in cooperation with the auxiliary device. The connector includes at least one terminal configured to be received by the portable electronic device, and the at least one terminal provides a control input to the portable electronic device, the control input being derived from physical manipulation of the housing.
Abstract: A vessel for safe handling of substances and having a first connection member through which the interior of the vessel is accessible by a device, e.g., an injection syringe, for removing or adding material thereto. At least a part of the vessel is expandable and contractable. The vessel is further provided with a second connection member, which is interconnected or interconnectable with the first connection inside the vessel. The second connection member is connectable to a further vessel outside the vessel, so that substance can be transferred directly from the injection syringe to said further vessel via the first and second connection members.
Abstract: A vessel for receiving fluid includes a flexible part having a closed end and an opening at its opposite end, and a rigid protective cover, the edges of the opening in the flexible part being attached to the rigid cover in a manner such that the inside of the flexible part and the inside of the cover define a closed interior space, the flexible part being capable of being drawn up against the inside of the protective cover upon evacuation of the interior space whereby the flexible part is received within the protective cover. A connection member is provided on the outside of the protective cover, the connection member having a bore therethrough and a perforatable, resilient, self-sealing membrane extending across the bore, through which membrane a puncturing member may be inserted for removing material from or adding material to the interior space.
Abstract: Device for ventilating and pressure balancing the interior of a sealed vessel (91) containing a substance which is to be taken out from said vessel e.g. by an injection syringe, said vessel being provided with a closure means (2) comprising a sealing member (2) through which a puncturing member, e.g. a needle can be passed for entering the interior of said vessel the closure means (2) or a connection means (3) attachable onto said vessel is provided with ventilating means (10, 13, 14, 15) arranged to provide a communication between the interior of the vessel (1) and a closed container or alternatively the atmosphere via a filter (16).
Abstract: The present invention discloses a device for introducing soft, short, catheter-cannula into a blood vessel. The device comprises a puncturing member and a connection member arranged at the rear end of the catheter cannula remote from the blood vessel. The device is easy to handle and the insertion of the needle, the catheter and the introducer is made in a single step.

Abstract: A device is disclosed for preventing air contamination when transferring a substance from one vessel to a second vessel. The device is attached or connectible to the vessel and comprises a first member, in which a puncturing member e.g. a needle, provided with a passage is enclosed. The first member has a sealing member, e.g. a membrane, through which the needle can be passed. The device further comprises a second chamber, which is detachably connectable to the first member and which also has a sealing member, e.g. a membrane. When the first and second members are connected to each other the two sealing members are located in a position with respect to each other so that they can be penetrated by the puncturing member which is movable with respect to the sealing members.
Abstract: A device for sterile storage of a catheter (11) and sterile advancing thereof a given length directly in a blood vessel, the device comprising a connecting piece (13), which is connectable both to a cannula and to a transparent, flexible protective sheath (15), in particular a plastic bag, enclosing the catheter. In order to allow continuous reading of the fed out catheter length the protective sheath (15) is equipped with a length scale (17), which has its highest value nearest the connecting piece (13) and which is made so that the reading of the length scale against the remaining length of the catheter in the protective sheath corresponds to the fed out length of the catheter. Further means (23;31;32;33) are provided which allow withdrawal of the protective sheath from wrinkled position to stretched position without bringing the catheter (11) with it.
