  • Publication number: 20210196488
    Abstract: An expandable stent to enhance the supply of blood to downstream tissue which is being supplied with blood through a diseased intracranial artery with a stenosis formed therein by plaque with a bore therethrough. The expandable stent includes first and second end portions joined by a central portion. The central portion is configured in the expanded state of the stent to be located in the bore of the stenosis with the first and second end portions abutting non-diseased parts of the artery adjacent the proximal and distal ends of the stenosis for anchoring the stent in the artery. The central portion with the stent in the expanded state is configured to apply a radial outward pressure to the stenosis such that the diameter of the bore of the stenosis is maintained at its current diameter or increased to approximately 50% of the non-diseased parts of the artery.

  • Patent number: 9278119
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a Wnt5a protein or peptide thereof possessing Wnt5a signaling properties, such as Foxy5, for use in the treatment of prostate cancer, in particular in patients that have undergone or will undergo radical prosteatectomy. The invention also relates to a method for determining a prognosis for a patient having prostate cancer and a kit for performing said method. The method for determining a prognosis for a patient comprises the steps of: evaluating an amount of Wnt5a protein present in at least part of a sample earlier obtained from the patient and determining a sample value corresponding to the evaluated amount; comparing the sample value obtained in step a) with a reference value associated with a reference prognosis; and, if said sample value is higher than said reference value, concluding that the prognosis for said patient is better than said reference prognosis.

  • Patent number: 8943644
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a vacuum cleaner comprising an electric motor 3 and a blower producing an air flow through the vacuum cleaner. The electric motor and the blower are placed on a common vertical axis 17. A separator unit 13 is placed laterally with respect to the common axis of the motor and the blower. A bent conduit 19 connects the blower with the separator unit, and one end 21 of the conduit encloses the common vertical axis. The conduit comprises a portion located along the common axis 17 having a double wall forming a closed air pocket 23. This provides damping of noise emitted by the blower/motor and which propagates in the opposite direction of the air flow.

  • Patent number: 8674060
    Abstract: Loss of Wnt-5a protein expression in breast carcinoma patients is associated with a shorter recurrence-free survival as well as increased motility in mammary cell lines. Based on sequence analysis of Wnt-5a, peptide fragments were identified and investigated for their ability to mimic effects of the Wnt-5a protein on mammary cell adhesion and motility. Two of these peptides significantly increased adhesion and impaired the motility of non-tumorigenic breast cancer cell lines, both low in endogenous Wnt-5a protein expression. To identify the shortest possible peptide that still had an anti-motile effect, sequential deletions of two amino acids from the N-terminal side of the shorter of these two peptides were performed. The effect on tumor cell adhesion was gradually lost, and when only 6 amino acids remained the effect was not detectable. However, formulation of the N-terminal methionine of this hexapeptide restored its effect on adhesion and reduced tumor cell motility.

  • Patent number: 8601736
    Abstract: A method for stabilizing a weapon, eg a rifle or a handgun, barrel movements when aiming by attenuating the influence of, primarily, unintentional barrel movements on the barrel orientation. The method is especially characterized in the steps of providing a hinge (3) between the barrel front part (1), which comprises the barrel (1?), and the weapon rear part (2), which comprises the weapon butt end (2?), for mutual movability between said parts; continuously detecting the barrel longitudinal direction movement in at least two planes; and controlling at least one angle between the butt end and the barrel longitudinal direction orientation, respectively, by means of a control system (4h, 4v, 5h, 5v, 6h,6v) so that changes in the barrel orientation are counteracted. The invention also relates to a device and a fire arm.

    Abstract: The invention provides a device for extraction of a defined sample volume from a larger sample volume. The device includes a body having a reference surface and a measuring cavity extending from a part of the reference surface into the body, thereby forming at least one opening plane substantially uniform with the reference surface. An information carrier is applied to or distributed with the device, having direct or indirect volume information about defined volume established for the cavity. The invention also relates to a method for determining the volume of such a cavity, to a set of at least two such devices, to a method for dilution of at least two liquid samples by using at least two such devices, to an analytic instrument, to a method for operating such an instrument, to a system including the device and the instrument, and to a method for operating the system.
