  • Publication number: 20210255199
    Abstract: Certain embodiments of the present invention relate to methods and products for use in the determination of treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Particularly, although not exclusively, embodiments of the present invention relate to predicting the likelihood of a patient suffering from rheumatoid arthritis maintaining remission following cessation of disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Certain embodiments of the present invention are based on the determination of certain biomarkers of drug-free remission in RA following cessation of DMARD therapy.

  • Publication number: 20210228880
    Abstract: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) can be used to treat many neurological conditions beyond traditional movement disorders. When patients do not suffer from traditional movement disorders, medical professionals cannot use traditional observation-based methods to configure the DBS system. A new method for selecting stimulation configurations can include recording internal data and external data as the patient performs (or attempts to perform) a motor task. The internal data is electrophysiology data recorded by a plurality of DBS electrodes, used to identify at least one of the plurality of electrodes closest to a neuronal population involved in control of the at least one motor task. The external data is electroencephalogram (EEG) data recorded by scalp electrodes, which is used to select at least one of the potential stimulation electrodes to deliver the DBS. When the electrode(s) delivering the DBS are selected, optimal parameters for the DBS are then chosen.

  • Patent number: 11043081
    Abstract: A wagering game method includes dealing an initial poker hand, forming a final poker hand (optionally by discarding and replacing zero or more playing cards from the initial poker hand), and forming an augmented final poker hand by dealing additional cards to the final poker hand. Optionally, multiple augmented final poker hands may be formed from a single final poker hand by dealing additional cards from different decks to the same final poker hand. The augmented final poker hands are evaluated and a reward is issued based on the payout, if any, associated with the poker rank of each augmented final poker hand.

  • Patent number: 9528210
    Abstract: A method for making a dispersible nonwoven sheet generally comprises dispersing natural fibers and regenerated fibers in a ratio of about 70 to about 90 percent by weight natural fibers and about 10 to about 30 percent by weight regenerated fibers in a liquid medium to form a liquid suspension. The liquid suspension is deposited over a foraminous forming wire to form a nonwoven tissue web. The nonwoven tissue web is sprayed with a first plurality of jets. Each jet of the first plurality of jets is spaced from an adjacent one of the first plurality of jets by a first distance. The nonwoven tissue web also is sprayed with a second plurality of jets. Each jet of the second plurality of jets is spaced from an adjacent one of the second plurality of jets by a second distance, and the second distance is less than the first distance. The nonwoven tissue web is dried to form the dispersible nonwoven sheet.

  • Publication number: 20160123702
    Abstract: A storage-style clipboard has a quick-access weapon holder assembly. When triggered, the assembly moves from a concealed position to an accessible position. The weapon holder assembly may be accessed through a side or end wall of the clipboard box. The movement of the weapon holder assembly is actuated without the need for the user to remove his hand from the normal case-carrying position. The disclosure provides a recess accessible through one of the sides of the clipboard box with a grip and a trigger for release of the weapon holder sheltered in the recess. The recess provides protection for the user's hand and further hides from view the user's actions in releasing the weapon.
