  • Patent number: 9866061
    Abstract: A power supply apparatus with a protection function includes a pulse width modulation control unit, a pulse width modulation detecting unit, a switch unit and a feedback circuit. The feedback circuit detects a bus voltage. When the feedback circuit detects that the bus voltage is greater than a predetermined voltage, the feedback circuit sends an informing signal to the pulse width modulation control unit. The pulse width modulation control unit adjusts a duty cycle of a pulse width modulation signal and sends the pulse width modulation signal to the pulse width modulation detecting unit. When the pulse width modulation detecting unit detects that the duty cycle of the pulse width modulation signal is less than a predetermined cycle, the pulse width modulation detecting unit turns off the switch unit to stop outputting power to avoid a reverse current phenomenon.

  • Publication number: 20170128507
    Abstract: A method of isolating at least one sphingolipid portion selected from a sphingoid base portion, a ceramide portion, a glycosphingolipid portion or a phosphosphingolipid portion from Cordyceps, in particular from wild-type Cordyceps, allows for obtaining sphingolipid portions having an increased amount of one of sphingoid bases, ceramides, glycosphingolipids or phosphosphingolipids. The sphingolipid portions isolated contained significant amounts of sphingolipids not reported so far, and possess exceptional immunosuppressive activities. A method of treating a subject suffering from an inflammatory disease like an autoimmune disease or an allergic disease includes administering sphingolipids isolated from Cordyceps, in particular from wild-type Cordyceps. A method of treating a subject suffering from an inflammatory disease includes administering certain sphingolipids to the subject.
