  • Publication number: 20220045423
    Abstract: An array of antennae includes a monobit transmitter to insert dither into a transmit signal to form a dithered transmit signal. Monobit receivers process received signals that are combined with the dithered transmit signal to form composite received signals. Digital down converters process the composite received signals to form down converted received signals. A beam former circuit processes the down converted received signals to form recovered signals.

  • Publication number: 20070284131
    Abstract: A closure housing includes several housings. At least one of the housings is a concave housing with an open face. At least one layer, such as for example an elastomeric film or conformable sealant, is mounted on a circumferential perimeter portion of the concave housings across the open face of each of the concave housings. At least one layer, such as an elastomeric film, is adapted to interface one or more cables when the cables are interposed between the housings.

  • Publication number: 20070269798
    Abstract: Reagents and methods for detecting target proteins in a sample are provided. The reagents include a replicable genetic package, a protein displayed on an exterior surface of the package that is expressed from a heterologous nucleic acid borne by the package, and one or more antibodies complexed with the expressed protein and which have an open binding site for a target protein. Thus, a segment of the nucleic acid encodes for an epitope that is shared by the expressed polypeptide and the target protein. The reagents can be utilized individually or as part of a library or an array to bind target proteins within protein samples to form one or more complexes. By determining the sequence of the segment of the heterologous nucleic acid of a package within a complex, one can identify the target protein since the segment encodes for an epitope that is shared by the expressed and target proteins.

  • Publication number: 20070231260
    Abstract: Methods of treating a disease in a patient, methods of determining the presence of a disease in a patient, methods of determining whether a disease in a patient is suitable to be treated with a therapeutic agent, and methods of monitoring treatment of a disease in a patient comprising determining a level of expression of a transporter in cells of a tissue associated with the disease are disclosed. The methods include administering to a patient a diagnostic conjugate and/or therapeutic conjugate that are substrates for a transporter expressed by cells of a tissue associated with the disease. Kits comprising a diagnostic composition comprising a diagnostic conjugate that is a transporter substrate are also disclosed. In particular, methods and kits useful for diagnosing and treating cancer are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20070141249
    Abstract: An apparatus for casting a patterned surface on both sides of a web. The apparatus includes a first patterned roll; a second pattered roll; and a means for rotating the first and second patterned rolls such that their patterns are transferred to opposite sides of the web while it is in continuous motion. During this process, their patterns are maintained in continuous registration to within at least 100 microns, and preferably at least 20 microns.
