  • Publication number: 20240201205
    Abstract: A method for detecting a neurological disease the method comprising isolating brain tissue from its natural environment, contacting the brain tissue with a labeled molecule which binds to multiple sites of stacked proteins associated with neurodegenerative disease, determining the binding of the labeled molecule; and thereby determining a neurodegenerative disease associated with the brain tissue.

  • Publication number: 20240197682
    Abstract: A method of inhibiting propagation of protein misfolding associated with a neurological disease, is carried out by contacting an environment populated with a propagating amyloid conformation of a protein (prion) associated with a neurological disease with molecules which binds multiple adjacent sites of the protein assemblies and allowing the molecules to bind multiple cites of the protein assemblies; and thereby impeding propagation of the disease-associated conformation of the protein in the environment. Drug/prion complexes are formed and uses of the drugs in detection and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 5621456
    Abstract: An interactive audio-visual (A/V) transceiver is advantageously coupled to a television and/or telephone (T/T) cable, a TV, a video recorder (VCR), and other A/V devices. The A/V transceiver switches data between a program/service provider and the connected A/V devices. In one embodiment, the transceiver includes three primary modules, a main module including a CPU, a system bus, system memory, an infra-red (IR) control unit, an audio-visual bus, an A/V decoder, an A/V processor, and an A/V encoder, an A/V connect module including a number of tuner/demodulators and a switch, and an optional CD ROM module. The A/V transceiver hardware is complemented with an operating system and software program which supports the functions provided in the A/V user interface.
