  • Publication number: 20190321336
    Abstract: There is provided a topical formulation comprising a nucleophile, such as amino acids and most polypeptides and/or a derivative thereof, for use in the treatment or prevention of itchy dry skin caused by urea, such as in uremic pruritus, of a subject. The amino acid may be histidine and the derivative may be a histidine degradation product, a peptide of histidine, a peptide of histidine and one or more additional amino acids, and a pharmaceutically-acceptable salt of histidine.

  • Publication number: 20190319802
    Abstract: In one example an apparatus comprises a computer readable memory to store a public key associated with a signing device, communication logic to receive, from the signing device, a signature chunk which is a component of a signature generated by a hash-based signature algorithm, and at least a first intermediate node value associated with the signature chunk, verification logic to execute a first hash chain beginning with the signature chunk to produce at least a first computed intermediate node value, execute a second hash chain beginning with the at least one intermediate node value associated with the signature chunk to produce a first computed final node value, and use the first computed intermediate node value and the first computed final computed node value to validate the signature generated by the hash-based signature algorithm. Other examples may be described.

  • Publication number: 20190319800
    Abstract: In one example an apparatus comprises accelerator logic to pre-compute at least a portion of a message representative, hash logic to generate the message representative based on an input message, and signature logic to generate a signature to be transmitted in association with the message representative, the signature logic to apply a hash-based signature scheme to a private key to generate the signature comprising a public key, and determine whether the message representative satisfies a target threshold allocation of computational costs between a cost to generate the signature and a cost to verify the signature. Other examples may be described.

  • Publication number: 20190280725
    Abstract: A crystal-free radio includes an antenna; a receiver configured to communicate with the antenna; a local radio frequency (RF) oscillator configured to communicate with the receiver; and a clock circuit configured to communicate with the receiver and the local RF oscillator, the clock circuit having an electronic circuit oscillator. The local RF oscillator is a free-running oscillator. The clock circuit is configured to receive a calibration signal via a wireless network and calibrate the electronic circuit oscillator based on the received calibration signal, and the clock circuit is a crystal-free clock circuit.

  • Publication number: 20190242888
    Abstract: Viruses and other bioagents are of high medical and biodefense concern and their detection at concentrations well below the threshold necessary to cause health hazards continues to be a challenge with respect to sensitivity, specificity, and selectivity. Ideally, assays for accurate and real time detection of viral agents and other bioagents would not necessitate any pre-processing of the analyte, which would make them applicable for example to bodily fluids (blood, sputum) and man-made as well as naturally occurring bodies of water (pools, rivers). We describe herein a robust biosensor that combines the sensitivity of surface acoustic waves (SAW) generated at a frequency of 325 MHz with the specificity provided by antibodies and other ligands for the detection of viral agents.

  • Publication number: 20190224678
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a system and method for identifying and targeting individual cells within a cell population for selective extraction of cellular content and a digital microfluidic device having at least one hydrophilic site for receiving cells, an imaging system including a stage for receiving the digital microfluidic device and an imaging module for identifying at least one targeted cell among the cells at the at least one hydrophilic site. The system includes a pulsed laser source for laser lysing the targeted cell thereby releasing the cell content to produce a lysate.

  • Publication number: 20190140828
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to systems and methods of providing a trusted ownership re-key with attestation in a device. The device includes processor circuitry that incorporates TEE circuitry. The TEE circuitry generates an AAIK and encrypts the AAIK using HMAC. The TEE circuitry forms a first message using the HMAC, a public DAK assigned to the device, and a device signature. The TEE circuitry sends an encrypted first message to the manufacturer. The manufacturer validates the device based on the public DAK and generates a second message that includes the HMAC and a manufacturer signature. The encrypted second message is communicated to the TEE circuitry. Upon receipt the TEE circuitry validates the AAIK data in the second message against the most recent AAIK and generates a third message that includes the HMAC, the original AAIK, the RHK and the manufacturer attestation. The AAIK thus remains unknown to both the current owner and the manufacturer.

  • Publication number: 20180290602
    Abstract: A front bumper for a utility vehicle (“UTV”) may couple to the front of the UTV. The front bumper may include a cargo platform for providing additional cargo space to the UTV and for segregating items stored on the front bumper from items stored in the passenger area and/or a cargo bed on the back of the UTV. The front bumper may include a tool exchange system designed to store and hold various tools and equipment on the UTV, such as fishing poles, guns and chainsaws. An attachment rod may be used to couple the tool exchange system to the front bumper.
