  • Publication number: 20210132083
    Abstract: Disclosed is an in vitro method for assessing or predicting the response of a human patient to treatment of periodontal disease. The method is based on the insight to determine biomarker proteins. Accordingly, in a sample of saliva of a patient, the concentrations are measured of certain protein combinations. One such combination is Hemoglobin subunit delta (Hb-delta) and Pyruvate kinase (PK). Another such combination is Keratin-4 (K-4) and at least two of Alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (A1AGP), Pyruvate Kinase (PK) and Matrix metalloproteinase-8 (MMP-8). A third combination is Alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (A1AGP), Pyruvate Kinase (PK) and S100 calcium binding protein A8 (S100A8). Based on the concentrations as measured, at least one value is determined reflecting the joint concentrations for said proteins. This at least one value may indicate the probability that human patient has been or will be successfully treated for the periodontitis.

  • Patent number: 10989489
    Abstract: A firearm with manually operated bolt release includes a receiver defining a longitudinally-extending cavity, a barrel, and a bolt slideably mounted in the receiver for reciprocating axial movement between a forward closed breech position in battery with the barrel and a rearward open breech position. A recoil spring biases the bolt forward towards the closed breech position. A manually actuated bolt release is pivotably mounted in the firearm and movable between an engaged position and a disengaged position. The bolt release includes a locking portion configured to selectively engage a locking recess formed on the bolt for holding the bolt in the open breech position, and disengage the locking recess for releasing the bolt to reclose the breech. In one embodiment, the bolt may be automatically disengaged from the bolt release by retracting the bolt a second time.

  • Publication number: 20210059492
    Abstract: A vacuum cleaner including a cleaner head defining a suction chamber and having an agitator arranged to be rotated by an agitator motor, a dirt separator, a vacuum motor arranged to draw air into the suction chamber and then into the dirt separator, and a controller. The controller is configured to monitor the electrical load of the agitator motor, compare the magnitude of the electrical load to a threshold, and selectively adjust the electrical power delivered to the vacuum motor. The controller is configured either to increase the electrical power delivered to the vacuum motor to a predetermined upper power level if the electrical load is greater than the threshold, or to decrease the electrical power delivered to the vacuum motor to a predetermined lower power level if the electrical load is smaller than the threshold.

    Abstract: A pump includes a front plate, a gear plate and a rear plate. A drive shaft has a drive gear, an arbor has a driven gear engaged with the drive gear, and first and second bearings are disposed in the gear plate. The first and second bearings receive the drive shaft and the arbor. The rear plate has drain ports adjacent ends of the drive shaft and the arbor. The arbor has an opening such that media that passes between the first bearing and an outer surface of the arbor is directed to the second drain port via the opening. A drain bushing is positioned against the front plate, and includes an opening for the drive shaft. The drain bushing has a chamber and a radial port. When pumped media passes between the first bearing and the drive shaft it is directed to the chamber and out the radial port.
