  • Publication number: 20210151198
    Abstract: The technology uses aggregated health data and outbreak models to conduct differential diagnosis and provide risk assessments that indicate a likelihood of contracting COVID-19. A healthcare organization server provides COVID-19 diagnostic kits and health applications to participating computing devices that log user health data and registers contacts with other participating users via wireless interactions. The organization compares received data with data received from computing devices from a plurality of other users and identifies common occurrences. The server creates an outbreak model of a geographic region based on the data. The server communicates a determined likelihood of contracting COVID-19 of the user to the user computing device. The server provides the outbreak model to the user, healthcare workers, or others for use in responding to the outbreak.

  • Patent number: 11008373
    Abstract: The invention relates to novel designer osteogenic proteins having altered affinity for a cognate receptor, nucleic acids encoding the same, and methods of use therefor. More preferably, the novel designer osteogenic proteins are designer BMPs and have altered affinity for a cognate BMP receptor. The designer BMPs demonstrate altered biological characteristics and provide potential useful novel therapeutics.

  • Patent number: 10300172
    Abstract: Systems and methods for preparing osteoinductive synthetic bone grafts are provided in which a porous ceramic granule, which may be incorporated within a biocompatible matrix material, is loaded with an osteoinductive agent. Loading of granules is facilitated in some cases by the use of low-pH buffers and pre-treatments.

  • Publication number: 20190126938
    Abstract: Integrated performance braking is disclosed. A disclosed example apparatus includes a hand-operated lever of a vehicle, a data interface to operatively couple the lever to an anti-lock braking system (ABS) of the vehicle, and a brake controller to cause at least one wheel of the vehicle to lock via the ABS when the lever is rotated to a defined angular position.

  • Patent number: 10147171
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for generating regional digital subtraction angiography (DSA) images and roadmap images with landmarks. In one embodiment, a method comprises generating a mask from a set of mask images of an anatomy of a subject, and generating a masked image by applying the mask to acquired image data of the anatomy of the subject, including weighting the mask differently inside a region of interest (ROI) of the image than outside the ROI, the weighting inside ROI independent of the weighting outside the ROI. In this way, a user may be able to adjust a relative magnitude of subtraction inside and outside the ROI, and thus be able to visualize both vasculature and landmarks within the same image frame.

  • Publication number: 20170337510
    Abstract: Computer program products, methods, systems, apparatus, and computing entities for tracking an item delivery are provided. In one embodiment, an item is associated with a vehicle (e.g., manned or unmanned terrestrial vehicle, nautical vehicle, and/or aerial vehicle) by updating item data in a database. An item tracking session is then generated based on the item data. Upon the determination that session availability trigger has occurred, access to the item tracking session is provided to a user. Data representing an updated location of the delivery vehicle is then used to update the item data to indicate the current location of the item as the updated location of the vehicle.
