  • Publication number: 20240115824
    Abstract: Systems and methods can determine respiratory rates of a patient using a respiratory device by performing one or more frequency analyses of a signal from the gases flow. The signal from the gases flow can be one that varies with the patient's breathing. The system can include a non-sealed patient interface, such as a nasal cannula in a nasal high flow therapy, or any other patient interfaces. The respiratory system can also detect whether the patient has taken off the patient interface and/or whether the patient connected to the patient interface is talking or eating. Data of the patient's use of the respiratory system and the patient's respiratory rates can provide therapy compliance and long-term trend of use information and/or progress in the patient's respiratory functions and/or other physiological functions.

  • Patent number: 11931405
    Abstract: A bioconjugate of an E. coli glucosylated O4 antigen polysaccharide covalently linked to a carrier protein and compositions thereof are provided. Also provided are recombinant host cells for producing the bioconjugate, and methods of producing the bioconjugate using the recombinant host cells. The recombinant host cells contain a nucleic acid encoding a glucosyl transferase capable of modifying the E. coli O4 antigen with glucose branching to produce the glucosylated O4 antigen polysaccharide. Bioconjugates of an E. coli glucosylated O4 antigen polysaccharide described herein can be used alone or in combination with one or more additional E. coli O-antigen polysaccharides to induce antibodies against an E. coli glucosylated antigen, and to vaccinate a subject against extra-intestinal pathogenic E. coli (ExPEC).

  • Publication number: 20240086205
    Abstract: Techniques and architecture are described for validating and verifying iPXE scripts prior to execution during a booting process. During the booting process of a network device, right after the UEFI/BIOS stage of the booting process, a trusted iPXE script may make a request to a network server for the ownership voucher and owner certificate of the network device. The ownership voucher and owner certificate may then be stored in a trusted platform module (TPM) on the network device. In configurations, the retrieved owner certificate may be validated by the ownership voucher. The owner certificate may be used to validate iPXE scripts. Once validated, the iPXE scripts may be executed and the booting process may be continued to the kernel loading step and the application loading step. During a subsequent booting process of the network device, the ownership voucher and owner certificate may be retrieved from the TPM.
