  • Patent number: 11498669
    Abstract: An extension assembly for a rotor system for rotating a plurality of rotor blades about a rotor axis with a central rotor hub that defines the rotor axis includes a beam assembly and a first bearing assembly. The beam assembly is configured to attach to the central rotor hub and is positioned at least partially within a corresponding one of the plurality of rotor blades. The first bearing assembly is configured to be fastened to the beam assembly and to at least one of a leading edge or a trailing edge of the corresponding one of the plurality of rotor blades.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20210177981
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides conjugates which comprise an insulin molecule conjugated via a conjugate framework to one or more separate ligands that include a first saccharide, and wherein the conjugate framework also comprises a fatty chain (e.g., a C8-30 fatty chain). In certain embodiments, a conjugate is characterized in that, when the conjugate is administered to a mammal, at least one pharmacokinetic (PK) and/or pharmacodynamic (PD) property of the conjugate is sensitive to serum concentration of a second saccharide. In certain embodiments, a conjugate is also characterized by having a protracted PK profile. Exemplary conjugates and sustained release formulations are provided in addition to methods of use and preparation.

  • Publication number: 20200087375
    Abstract: An insulin conjugate comprising or consisting of a tri-valent sugar cluster is described. In particular aspects, the insulin conjugate displays a pharmacokinetic (PK) and/or pharmacodynamic (PD) profile that is responsive to the systemic concentrations of a saccharide such as glucose or alpha-methylmannose even when administered to a subject in need thereof in the absence of an exogenous multivalent saccharide-binding molecule such as Con A.

  • Publication number: 20160303244
    Abstract: Insulin conjugates comprising an insulin molecule covalently attached to at least one bi-dentate linker having two arms, each arm independently attached to a ligand comprising a saccharide and wherein the saccharide for at least one ligand of the linker is fucose are disclosed. The insulin conjugates display a pharmacokinetic (PK) and/or pharmacodynamic (PD) profile that is responsive to the systemic concentrations of a saccharide such as glucose or alpha-methylmannose even when administered to a subject in need thereof in the absence of an exogenous multivalent saccharide-binding molecule such as Con A.
