  • Publication number: 20190183964
    Abstract: The invention provided herein includes isolated polypeptides that specifically block the interaction between neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) and albumin. Blocking the interaction treats diseases and conditions caused by increased amounts of albumin or modified albumin that possesses pathogenic properties wherein it is deemed desirable to decrease albumin levels. Accordingly, also provided are methods of using these isolated polypeptides to treat various diseases and conditions caused by increased amounts of albumin or modified albumin that possesses pathogenic properties. The invention provided herein also includes isolated polypeptides capable of binding to a non-IgG and non-albumin competitive site on an FcRn alpha 3 domain. These can be useful for tracking FcRn without inhibiting IgG or albumin binding or function. Accordingly, the invention also includes methods and systems to track FcRn without inhibiting IgG or albumin binding or function.

  • Patent number: 10325585
    Abstract: Ambient sound is converted into digital signals. A processor performs active noise cancellation and/or a transformation operation that is distinct from the active noise cancellation on the digital signals. The active noise cancellation and the transformation operation transform the digital signals into modified digital signals. The modified digital signals are converted into modified analog signals. The modified analog signals are outputted as audio waves. An interior microphone is configured to output an output signal to the processor in response to receiving the modified analog signals. In response to receiving the output signal from the interior microphone, the processor is configured to determine whether the modified digital signals produce desired audio waves.

  • Publication number: 20190108710
    Abstract: There is described a gaming apparatus for providing an auxiliary jackpot game to a live casino table in which players may place gaming chips anywhere in a betting zone defined on the gaming table surface to signify entry in the auxiliary jackpot game. The gaming apparatus includes sensors to detect the positions of gaming chips placed in the betting zone, memory means to record the physical positions of the detected betting chips, random number generating apparatus, and processor means operable to select, on the basis of a generated random number, which of the detected positions is occupied by the winning bet. Optionally, the gaming apparatus further includes determining means for determining, on the basis of a generated random number, whether or not a jackpot payout is to be made, and the processor means is operated to select a winning bet position only when the determining means determines that a payout is to be made.

  • Patent number: 10187753
    Abstract: Queue Information & Prediction System (QIPS) uses the probability of queue existing in a given venue to assess the queue time. The instantaneous queue time for a location may be determined using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or other wireless networks. QIPS uses the distances from signal strengths along with venue characteristics to determine an estimated queue time. Using queue probability for a venue and the instantaneous queue time for the same area QIPS may generate a Queue Decision Window (QDW). The QDW is a period of time leading up to a transaction or a consumption of a service. QIPS sorts through information surrounding a venue where crowds as well as queues may exists to determine queue time. Knowing the approximate queue time for transactions and consumption of services is helpful for consumers to manage their time.

  • Publication number: 20180230849
    Abstract: The present disclosure is direct to a system for regulating a velocity of gases in a turbomachine. The system includes an exhaust section of the turbomachine. The system also includes a damper having an actuator and a restriction. The damper is positioned within the exhaust section and is operable to adjust the velocity of the gases based on a position of the restriction. The system further includes a controller communicatively coupled to the damper. The controller is configured to control the position of the restriction to regulate the velocity of the gases relative to a predetermined velocity range.

  • Publication number: 20180158288
    Abstract: Sounds, alarms or other indications of conditions of potential interest that are produced by appliances and other household devices are detected by one or more sensors to trigger a notification signal that is sent to a remotely located user. The signals produced by the sensors are advantageously compared with a database of signals representing conditions of potential interest produced by known appliances and devices, producing the appropriate notification signal when a match is found. Notifications may be relayed to one or more selected users only when predetermined conditions are satisfied.
