  • Publication number: 20200397824
    Abstract: The disclosure concerns a method for cancer treatment by in vivo priming and activation of natural killer cells for achieving tumor cell lysis. The method includes introducing into a patient a priming tumor cell preparation (PTCP) derived from a first tumor cell line, which is irradiated to inactivate the first tumor cells or a membrane preparation thereof, the first tumor cells having known priming ligands on the membrane surface thereof. The patient's rest NK cells are contacted by the PTCP in vivo, resulting in primed NK cells, which are characterized by upregulation of CD69, shedding of CD16, or a combination of CD69+ and CD16?. These primed NK cells then contact second tumor cells, the cancer, and are configured to lyse and kill the second tumor cells.

  • Patent number: 10775146
    Abstract: A measurement device for measuring a vertical distance between a first point and a second point includes: an elongate body extending from a first end to a second end that is distal from the first end; a leveling mechanism located at the second end of the elongate body, the leveling mechanism configured to orient the measurement device at two or more pre-determined angles relative to a vertical orientation of the measurement device; and two or more scales displaying units of measurement along a length of the elongate body. Units of measurement of each of the two or more scales correspond to a vertical distance between the first point and the second point.

  • Patent number: 9581173
    Abstract: A compressor housing defines an inlet bore having a first inlet collar disposed therein. The inlet collar is connected to the housing with a first plurality of radially extending posts. The first plurality of posts is removed to detach the inlet collar from the housing, and the inlet collar is removed from the housing. The same or another inlet collar is concentrically located within a liner. The liner can be located at a radial distance around at least a portion of the inlet collar. The inlet collar is connected to the liner by radially inserting a second plurality of posts through the liner and into the inlet collar. An assembly of the liner containing the inlet collar is inserted into the inlet bore of the housing such that the inlet collar forms the inducer bore of the compressor housing.

  • Publication number: 20150012307
    Abstract: According to various embodiments, the present invention may provide a method for inventorying, reserving, checking into, navigating to, and/or checking out of seats or other occupiable spaces. A tag may be attached to each seat and scanned wirelessly to gather seat data, which may be used to generate an inventory of the seats available for reservation. A user may then view the inventory and select one or more seats for reservation. When the user arrives at the establishment, he or she may check into the reserved seats. A navigation application may help the user locate the reserved seats. Upon departing the establishment, the user may check out of the reserved seats.

  • Patent number: 8853870
    Abstract: Some embodiments relate to an energy conversion device comprising: a casing; a magnet disposed in the casing: an object in the casing attracted to the magnet and free to move relative to the magnet in at least two degrees of freedom; and at least one transducer element positioned to be affected by changes in a magnetic field of the magnet; wherein movement of the object relative to the magnet varies the magnetic field through the at least one transducer element, thereby generating electrical potential across a part of the at least one transducer element. In some embodiments, the transducer element may comprise a magnetostrictive piezoelectric (MP) element and the electrical potential may be generated across a piezoelectric part of the MP element. Alternatively, the transducer element may comprise an electromagnetic (EM) coil element.
