  • Patent number: 10890588
    Abstract: This invention is directed to methods for the facile and accurate identification of cancer cells in a tissue sample, such as a surgical field. In particular, the compositions and methods employ conjugates comprising pro-fluorescent fluorescein based moieties bound to folic or pteroic acid targeting moiety optionally through a linker. The pro-fluorescent fluorescein based moieties are non-fluorescent but capable of being rendered fluorescent by intracellular processes. The conjugates are employed to detect cancer cells that overexpress folic acid receptors thereby providing for differential accumulation of these conjugates in these cells.

  • Patent number: 10880082
    Abstract: In some examples, a device includes a memory controller to, during a power-on process of the device: read encrypted data from a nonvolatile memory, decrypt, using a first key, the encrypted data to produce decrypted data, encrypt, using a second key different from the first key produced as part of rekeying, the decrypted data to produce new encrypted data, and write the new encrypted data to the nonvolatile memory. A power-on code is to prevent booting of the device until all data in the nonvolatile memory has been encrypted using the second key.

  • Publication number: 20200390339
    Abstract: A system and method of monitoring a person to detect the onset of an illness. A monitoring unit collects biometric data and exchanges that data with a remote electronic device. Using the monitoring device, a person is monitored across multiple days. The biometric data collected determines a statistical profile for the collected data. After the statistical profile is calculated, the person can be actively monitored as he/she sleeps. The monitoring occurs during a sample period of sleep. The biometric data collected during the sample period is averaged to obtain a statistical value. The statistical value is compared to the statistical profile of the biometric data. If the sampled biometric data falls outside the statistical profile, a warning is produced on the electronic device.
