  • Publication number: 20240167058
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are gene therapy vectors used for efficiently transducing cells to express a human ?-globin gene. Specifically disclosed is an expression vector which comprises: an expression cassette for a ?-globin gene, which comprises exons and introns of human ?-globin gene, as well as cis-acting elements including one or more of WPRE, SV40 polyadenylation signal and/or SV40 ori. The disclosed expression vectors have significantly enhanced viral vector packaging efficiency in viral vector packaging cell lines, which leads to effective integration of lentiviral vectors and high expression level of ?-globin gene in target cells. Also disclosed are pharmaceutical compositions and therapeutic methods utilizing such expression vectors.

  • Publication number: 20220133446
    Abstract: A dental optical coherence tomography system for scanning a sample has a swept source laser configured to generate output light having a range of wavelengths. Two or more optical channels each provide a reference and sample path for the output light, wherein each optical channel has a corresponding detector to provide an output signal according to combined light from the sample and reference, wherein the detector output signal characterizes back-reflected or back-scattered light from the sample path over a range of depths below a surface. A scanning reflector simultaneously directs sample path output light from each of the two or more channels toward the sample surface and directs returned light from the sample to the corresponding sample path and detector. A processor is in signal communication with the detector for each optical channel and that is configured to record and store results from the output signals received from each detector.

  • Publication number: 20220117493
    Abstract: An intraoral scanner (90) is disclosed for use with a dental optical coherence tomography system. The scanner has a scanning reflector that is energizable to direct a scanning beam in a raster pattern toward a sample (S) surface. The scanning reflector is further to direct a reflected beam from the sample surface toward a detector (60). The scanning reflector is calibrated to direct the scanning and reflected beams in an open-loop control mode. A dental optical coherence tomography system and a method for calibration of a scanning reflector are also disclosed.
