  • Publication number: 20190310404
    Abstract: A method of making an infrared-reflecting optically transparent assembly comprises: coating a curable composition onto a major surface of an optically transparent thermoplastic polymer film; at least partially curing the curable composition, which may be optionally at least partially dried, to provide a thermoformable composite film; and laminating the thermoformable composite film to an infrared-reflecting multilayer optical film to provide the infrared-reflecting optically transparent assembly. The curable composition comprises urethane (meth)acrylate compound, (meth)acrylate monomer, and silicone (meth)acrylate. The infrared-reflecting optically transparent assembly and methods of including it in an infrared-reflecting lens assembly are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190282754
    Abstract: Methods are taught for treating chronic wounds and skin and soft tissue infections with antibiotic tumescent injection. In such methods, the region of tumescent drug delivery is monitored and expanded by the infusate in order to be 2×-5× larger in area and volume in the region of the wound or infection, the drug in the infusate creates a tissue concentration greater than the MIC in the tumescent volume for selected period of time, and the high concentration has a residence lifetime in the tissue long enough to kill the bacteria. Typically, the methods are performed without the use of vasoconstrictors such as epinephrine and in a manner that avoids physical manipulation of the wound.

  • Publication number: 20180296656
    Abstract: The invention relates to the development of chimeric OspA molecules for use in a new Lyme vaccine. More specifically, the chimeric OspA molecules comprise the proximal portion from one OspA serotype, together with the distal portion from another OspA serotype, while retaining antigenic properties of both of the parent polypeptides. The chimeric OspA molecules are delivered alone or in combination to provide protection against a variety of Borrelia genospecies. The invention also provides methods for administering the chimeric OspA molecules to a subject in the prevention and treatment of Lyme disease or borreliosis.

  • Patent number: 8992936
    Abstract: Provided herein are OspA polypeptides from Lyme Disease-causing Borrelia having certain alteration(s). In one embodiment, the alteration(s) increase the conformational stability of the OspA polypeptide containing the alteration(s) while maintaining at least some of the antigenicity of the corresponding unaltered OspA polypeptide. In another embodiment, the altered OspA polypeptide has reduced cross-reactivity to hLFA-1, as compared to the corresponding unaltered OspA polypeptide.
