  • Publication number: 20220331373
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a composition comprising Rhodospirillum rubrum cells for use in a method for inhibiting the uptake of cholesterol from the intestine in a human subject, such that the plasma LDL-cholesterol level in said human subject is lowered and concentrations of blood proteins relating to kidney function, liver function and/or heart function are essentially unaltered. In addition, the invention relates to a non-therapeutic method of lowering plasma LDL-cholesterol level in a subject, the method comprising administering to the subject a composition comprising Rhodospirillum rubrum cells, wherein lowering of the plasma LDL-cholesterol level is the inhibition of the uptake of cholesterol from the intestine in said human subject.

  • Patent number: 11333984
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for reducing particles in the vicinity of an electrostatic chuck (300) in which a cleaning reticle or substrate (320) is secured to the chuck, the cleaning reticle or substrate having surfaces partially devoid of conductive material so that an electric field from the chuck can pass through to a volume adjacent the substrate to draw particles (360) in the volume to the surface of the substrate. Voltage supplied to the chuck may have an alternating polarity to enhance the attraction of particles to the surface.

The accelerator comprises configurable processing elements in an accelerator-internal grid connected by an accelerator-internal interconnect system and memory arrays comprising memory cells. The memory arrays are connected to the accelerator-internal interconnect system. Selected ones of the memory arrays are positioned within the accelerator corresponding to positions of the grid cells in the physical natural environment. Thereby, each group of the memory cells is adapted for storing the list of physical values of the corresponding grid cell of the physical natural environment.
