  • Publication number: 20080027031
    Abstract: The proliferation and activation of microglia is emerging as an important etiologic factor and target for therapeutic intervention in several CNS diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis. Here, we have discovered that retinoic acids dramatically inhibit microglial proliferation in an in vivo model including the widely-used animal model of multiple sclerosis, the experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) mouse model.

  • Patent number: 6980611
    Abstract: A system for suppressing ambient signals from a signal containing radiated emissions of a electronic device and ambient signals. The system comprises a first receiver operative to receive the ambient signals and the radiated emissions from the electronic device. The first receiver is operative to demodulate and digitize the ambient signals and the radiated emissions. The system further comprises a second receiver operative to receive primarily the ambient signals wherein the second receiver is time and frequency synchronized to the first receiver and operative to demodulate and digitize the ambient signals. A central computer is in electrical communication with the first and second receivers and is operative to store and process the ambient signals and the radiated emissions from respective ones of the first and second receivers. Accordingly, the central computer is configured as an adaptive filter operative to suppress the ambient signals correlated between the first and second receivers.

  • Publication number: 20040191769
    Abstract: Methods, compositions, and kits for detecting mutations in the entire human mitochondrial genome. A preferred method includes amplifying mtDNA from a biological sample by polymerase chain reaction of total DNA using a plurality of pre-selected primer pairs to generate overlapping amplicons; cleaving the amplicons using restriction enzymes to produce fragments suitable for analysis by denaturing high performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC); denaturing and re-annealing the amplicons; and fragment analysis by DHPLC to detect the presence or absence of heteroduplex molecules.

  • Publication number: 20040035793
    Abstract: Methods, systems, compositions and kits for improved detection of polynucleotides. In one aspect, there is provided a method for separating polynucleotides (such as DNA or RNA) using a liquid chromatographic separation device (such as a reverse phase column or an ion exchange column), contacting eluted polynucleotides with intercalating dye, and detecting (such as by fluorescence detection) dye bound to the eluted polynucleotides. The invention preferably uses a post-column reactor, such as a mixing tee, downstream of the separation column. Sensitivity of mutation detection by denaturing high performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC) is enhanced.

  • Patent number: 6095358
    Abstract: An anti-creeping cap to prevent the self unscrewing of a cap from a container used for edible products. The cap has an internal screw thread and multiple spaced engagement ribs extending from a secondary depending annular flange that correspondingly engaged to a number of registering projections extending from the neck finish of the container. Moderate torsional rotation input force is required to disengage the registering projections from grooves formed between the ribs which is accomplished by the flexation of the flange for cap removal.
