  • Patent number: 5622686
    Abstract: This invention provides methods of treatment and/or diagnosis and/or siting of viruses including the AIDS virus and others as well as the cells which they infect. The method comprises introducing near, into or onto the virus or the cell which the virus infects, or both, minute particles. These particles possess ferromagnetic, paramagnetic or diamagnetic properties. After being localized near, in or on the virus or the viral-infected cell, the particles are inductively heated by application of an alternating electromagnetic field. The inductive heating is continued for a period of time sufficient to bring about a temperature rise to a minimum necessary to kill the virus or cell or to desirably alter the behavior of the virus or infected cell. Prior to, during or after treatment, these particles can be used diagnostically to locate and/or map the virus in the living tissue.

  • Patent number: 5541979
    Abstract: A cell extender for use in digital cellular telephone systems comprises a control module, and scanning module, and several traffic modules. The control module bidirectionally repeats the donor cell site control channels. Voice modules therein bidirectionally repeat selected donor traffic channels for mobiles. The voice module amplifies and translates the Reverse Digital Traffic Channel RDTC (transmitted by the mobile). The voice module reframes the Forward Digital Traffic Channel, and advances its timing such that RDTC signals transmitted by the mobile and repeated by the cell extender arrive at the donor with the correct timing alignment. The timing advance compensates for RF path propagation delay between the donor and the cell extender, and for any additional delay through the cell extender. If the voice module determines that the mobile is leaving the cell extender coverage area, it sends a hand-off message returning the mobile to the assigned donor traffic channel.

  • Patent number: 5212724
    Abstract: A downlink between a communications dispatch console and a digitally trunked radio repeater system site controller efficiently transfers message data between the site controller and the console over a standard 9.2 kilobit per second landline. A downlink trunking card identical in structure to trunking cards used in the preferred embodiment system for RF channel signal processing interfaces the site controller with the landline link. A similar trunking card on the other side of the landline link interfaces the dispatch console processor with the landline link. Message protocol and format is translated between the site controller and the landline link and between the landline link and the dispatch console. Data buffering at each end of the landline link maximizes data transfer rate over the landline, and in addition, a priority scheme insures that more important messages are transmitted over the downlink before less important messages.

  • Patent number: 5152002
    Abstract: A system and a method for extending coverage of a cell site in a cellular radio telephone system include a plurality of repeaters or boosters which are spaced through the region where increased coverage is desired. A first booster is in radio communication with the transceiver for the cell site. The remaining boosters are linked together, by radio transmissions, in a series configuration with only one of those linked to the first booster. A movable transceiver operating in the extended area of coverage is in radio communication with the closest booster unit and, via the serial chain of boosters in communication with the controlling cell site. As the movable unit moves along the extended area of coverage from one booster area to another, it is automatically picked up by the approaching booster and dropped by the receding booster while continuing to be in communication ultimately with the cell site via the series coupled booster chain.

  • Patent number: 4994014
    Abstract: A process for treating diseased cells in the living tissue of a subject. A solution of ferric oxyhydroxide or other intracellular chemically-generated, energy particles is intravenously injected into the subject. After the particles have been intracellularly absorbed by the diseased cells, the oxygen level in the subject's blood is raised, as by subjecting him to hyperbaric air or oxygen. This increases the rate of the intracellular absorption of oxygen by the diseased cells. This oxygen absorption then together with the intracellularly-absorbed particles increase the rate of oxidation and metabolism of the particles, and thereby raise the subject's intracellular energy. The intracellular production of interleukins and other activators, such as interferons and prostaglandins, is thereby stimulated, and these interleukins and other activators destroy the diseased cells wherever they may be in the subject.

  • Patent number: 4923437
    Abstract: The process includes applying a localized static, magnetic or electric field to neurological or neuromuscular tissue to aid in the intracellular uptake and energy absorption of electric or magnetic dipoles present in the tissue and the cells. Before the applying step dipoles can be introduced in the tissues or cells. Also, after or during the applying step, an alternating, oscillating or pulsed electromagnetic field can be applied to the tissue to enhance the intracellular uptake of energy, and the energy absorption responsiveness in the tissue and/or the energy absorption of the dipoles in the tissue. The process can utilize a constant magnetic field through the interaction with the intracellular dipoles in the tissue. Further, an external electromagnetic field can be applied to the tissue to excite the particles and raise the energy level of the tissue to destroy the cells and modify their behavior to decrease the degenerative process.
