  • Publication number: 20190367631
    Abstract: Provided herein are antibodies and antigen-binding fragments that bind MSR1 and methods of use thereof. According to certain embodiments, the antibodies bind human MSR1 with high affinity. In certain embodiments, the antibodies bind MSR1 without blocking, or blocking less than 90%, of modified LDL binding to MSR1. In some embodiments, the antibodies bind cell surface expressed-MSR1 and are internalized. The antibodies of the invention may be fully human antibodies. The invention includes anti-MSR1 antibodies, or antigen-binding fragments thereof, conjugated to drugs or therapeutic compounds.

  • Patent number: 10294655
    Abstract: A filtration apparatus for use with drainage structures and a method for installing the same are provided. The filtration apparatus has a first grate and a second grate, which, when installed and secured together, establish a filtration barrier between the inlet and bottom of a drainage structure for filtering stormwater runoff entering the drainage structure. The first grate and second grate are secured to internal walls of the drainage structure via anchoring members. The anchoring members allow each of the grates to rotate to facilitate transition of each grate from a hanging to a suspended position. A connecting member secures the first grate and the second grate together so that the grates bisect the cavity of the drainage structure.
