  • Publication number: 20200316180
    Abstract: Methods for preventing, delaying the onset of, or treating rejection of an allograft using a DNA vaccine, where the vaccine can comprise a polynucleotide encoding a pro-apoptotic protein, like BAX and/or a polynucleotide encoding an autoantigen or donor antigen, like secreted glutamic acid decarboxylase 55. Administering one of the DNA vaccines to a transplant recipient, as described herein, can induce a donor specific tolerogenic response.

  • Patent number: 10773899
    Abstract: A conveying/loading apparatus includes a first conveying apparatus having a first delivery part, with a blocking apparatus being disposed close to an output end of the first delivery part, and a second conveying apparatus having a second delivery part, with multiple supports being disposed at intervals on the second delivery part, and regions between the supports forming accommodating spaces for loading objects. An object is delivered to the output end of the first delivery part, and a first detection sensor detects a position of the object. A second detection sensor detects whether a support of the second delivery part has moved to a loading position, and whether the accommodating space between two adjacent supports is in an idle state. The first detection sensor causes the blocked object to pass, when the first detection sensor and the second detection sensor both have signals.

  • Publication number: 20140220048
    Abstract: Mammalian host cells for use in a cell-mediated tranfection process, which contain an RNAi molecule and an expression vector for a pro-apoptotic protein. The method includes inducing apoptotic cell (AC) death in mammalian cells that contain an RNAi molecule capable of downregulating a chosen target gene. Living cells expressing the target gene are then exposed to the ACs. The ACs are processed by the living cells, and the RNAi molecule in the ACs downregulates the expression of the target gene in living cells.
