  • Publication number: 20210260205
    Abstract: Peptides that home, target, migrate to, are directed to, are retained by, or accumulate in and/or bind to the cartilage or kidney of a subject are disclosed. Pharmaceutical compositions and uses for peptides or peptide-active agent complexes comprising such peptides are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 5481836
    Abstract: A wall support system for supporting a wall such as a masonry wall with respect to the ground. The wall support system includes a base with a 4.times.4 fitting and a pivotal chain lever, a wall support with a chain loop, a cement loop and a chain with a hook. The chain extends from the pivotal chain lever on the base through the cement loop, through the chain loop on the wall support and hooked to a overlapped link to bring the system into tension where the pivotal chain lever tensions the chain.

  • Patent number: 5072946
    Abstract: The method of playing a game utilizes one or more decks of cards. One card is dealt to a first player and one card is dealt to a second player. The numerical value of the first player's card is compared to the numerical value of the second player's card. If the numerical values are the same, the game is over and the deal is declared a tie. If the numerical value of the first player's hand is not the same as the value of the second player's hand, another card is dealt to the player having the lower numerical value. Again the total numerical values are compared. If a tie now exists, again the game is over and the hand is declared a tie. The dealing of cards to the hand having the lower total numerical value continues until a tie exists or until one of the hands exceeds a predetermined value. Once one of the hands exceeds the predetermined value, the other hand wins.
