  • Patent number: 10408848
    Abstract: A three dimensional (3-D) model comprising a scaffold and autologous skin cells, the invention also provides methods of predicting immunogenicity and hypersensitivity or allergic or adverse immune reactions to potential therapeutic compounds, biologies, cosmetics and chemical sensitizers using the 3-D model of skin cells. The methods provide an in vitro assay employing autologous blood derived cells in the 3-D skin equivalent model and is of particular utility in the identification and prediction of skin sensitizers and in particular agents that may cause allergic contact dermatitis. The assay of the present invention provides inter alia methods of screening library compounds for sensitizing activity, identifying optimal therapeutics, especially but not exclusively, monoclonal antibodies and kits therefor.

  • Patent number: 7577295
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for processing a document. The method comprises: marking an area of a document, using at least one predetermined markup symbol; identifying a markup symbol; using the identified markup symbol to locate the document area; determining characters in the document area; and, processing the determined characters. Fields that can be processed include title, keywords, author, signature, document name, category, subject, or document status, to name but a few examples. In some aspects, marking an area of a document, using at least one predetermined markup symbol includes: electronically marking using a medium such as a touchscreen, pressure pad, or a mouse. Alternately, the paper document can be physically marked (with a pen or pencil) before scanning. Typically, marking an area of a document includes forming a markup character proximate to an enclosing figure. A wide range of markup characters can be defined cross-referenced to document processes.

  • Publication number: 20070198576
    Abstract: A stateless-object method is provided for executing instructions. The method: establishes a central repository of states, cross-referencing state locations in memory, to identifiers; calls a first method; accesses a stateless-object in response to the first method, the stateless-object including an identifier and a second method; reads the identifier; uses the identifier to cross-reference the stateless-object's state location in the repository; accesses the located state; and, instantiates the second method in response to accessing the state. The central repository of states may cross-reference a first state to a first identifier, and the step of accessing the stateless-object includes accessing a plurality of stateless-objects in response to the first method, with each of the stateless-objects including the first identifier.

  • Publication number: 20060161800
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for reporting errors in an object-oriented software architecture environment. The method comprises: an application calling an initial method; in response to the initial method call, at least one object encountering an error in response to a subsequent method call; accumulating error information; and, creating a user-defined accumulated error report. Generally, accumulating error information includes: calling an accumulated error reporting object; and, from the accumulated error report object, calling a method for adding received error information to accumulated error information. Then, creating the user-defined accumulated error report includes calling a method for creating an error report text message by: reviewing the accumulated error information; and, matching accumulated error information with user-selected error criteria.
