  • Patent number: 8924408
    Abstract: An external service at a service provider server is invoked from a database by accessing from over a network a description of the external service published by the service provider external to the database. A database invocation mechanism is generated from the accessed description of the external service, wherein the database invocation mechanism comprises code within the database. A database program invokes the database invocation mechanism code within the database to invoke and interact with the external service. The database receives data from the external service in response to invoking and interacting with the external service.

  • Patent number: 8333995
    Abstract: The present invention relates to compositions of methods of making and compositions small compositions of particles of an active agent. In accordance with the method of production, the active agent is dissolved in an aqueous or aqueous-miscible solvent containing a dissolved phase-separation enhancing agent (PSEA) to form a solution in a single liquid phase. The solution is subjected to a liquid-solid phase separation to cause the active agent to form small spherical that are substantially amorphous or non-crystalline and are injectable through fine gauge needles at high concentrations. The invention has special application for higher molecular weight proteins.

  • Patent number: 8226051
    Abstract: An plumbing pipe locator and support is provided for fixing plumbing pipes in position relative to studs in a building. The pipe locator and support comprises an elongated supporting strap having upper and lower sides extending along opposing sides of a longitudinal axis. A first plurality of longitudinally aligned, larger pipe openings are interspersed with a second plurality of smaller, aligned fastener openings that extend into ends of the strap. The upper and lower sides undulate to provide a substantially uniform width between first holes and the adjacent sides and the second holes and the adjacent sides. This undulating surface can provide a strap using less material, with reduced manufacturing time, and a strap that can bend without forming creases or stress fractures.

  • Patent number: 8075919
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a method for preparing small spherical particles of an active agent by providing a solution in a single liquid phase. The single liquid phase comprises an active agent, a phase separation enhancing agent, and a first solvent. A phase change is induced at a controlled rate in the solution to cause a liquid-solid phase separation of the active agent and to form a solid phase and a liquid phase. The solid phase comprises solid small spherical particles of the active agent. The liquid phase comprises the phase separation enhancing agent and the solvent. The small spherical particles are substantially spherical and having a size from about 0.01 ?m to about 200 ?m.
