  • Publication number: 20180214065
    Abstract: An allergy skin testing device includes a central post having a sharp portion, a longitudinal portion, and a guide portion. The sharp portion has one or more sharp probes extending longitudinally. The guide portion facilitates guiding the sharp portion towards the skin. The device also includes a compressible annular pain-reduction structure having an annular dull probe portion, a resilient compressible portion, and an optional base portion. The annular dull probe portion initially extends beyond the sharp portion, and has a passageway allowing passage of the sharp portion therethrough, the annular dull probe portion being configured to activate a surrounding pain gate effect (a “pain gate fence”) when pressed against the skin. The resilient compressible portion is configured to compress along the longitudinal portion of the central post. The base portion is configured to be pushed by the guide portion when the annular dull probe portion is pressed against the skin.

  • Publication number: 20160206333
    Abstract: An allergy skin testing device is disclosed that includes at least one central post having at least one sharp probe extending longitudinally from an end of the at least one central post, the at least one sharp probe being for administering an allergen to skin. For each central post, at least three dull probes substantially surround the at least one sharp probe, creating a “pain gate fence”, the at least three dull probes being for activating a pain gate effect affecting nerves of the skin while the at leat one sharp probe administers the allergen to the skin. The at least three dull probes extend further along the central post than the at least one sharp probe, so when all the probes are pressed against the skin using a gripping portion, the plurality of dull probes press into the skin before the at least one sharp probe penetrates the skin.

  • Publication number: 20140370086
    Abstract: Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) with reduced oral itchiness is disclosed. The improved sublingual immunotherapy combines a monotonically increasing dose of allergen, along with a constant dose of mast cell stabilizer, thereby substantially avoiding the oral itchiness and other uncomfortable adverse reactions typically experienced with SLIT, which can improve patient compliance. An antihistamine and/or a leukotriene inhibitor can also be added along with the mast cell stabilizer. Multi-layer and/or coated tablets, and flexible paired ampoules with special features to advantageously time the dose of the allergen relative to the dose of the mast cell stabilizer, have been provided to effectively administer the improved sublingual immunotherapy in a highly convenient manner.

  • Publication number: 20130281932
    Abstract: A palm-held device is disclosed for injection of a substance into an organism. The palm-held device has the shape of a computer mouse, and so is very familiar, which helps with ease-of-use and comfort. Like a computer mouse, the device can be moved easily by gently holding and guiding the mouse with the fingers and the palm of the hand. There are many possible button configurations, such as a single button mouse, the button having a large surface at the front top portion of the mouse, and being pressable by any finger. There can also be a two button mouse, such that the left button actuates the injection, and the right button is the “safety” that allows the left button to actuate the injection. The two buttons can be on the top front of the mouse, or can be on the right and left sides of the mouse.

  • Publication number: 20130031451
    Abstract: A website and method are disclosed for helping a recommender to provide confidential recommendations for individuals. The system enables the recommender to efficiently comply with multiple requests for confidential recommendations, and to efficiently comply with a single request for a confidential recommendation to be sent to multiple institutions. The system eliminates the need to write multiple confidential recommendations when the individual applies to multiple institutions by enabling the recommender to distribute multiple links to the same confidential recommendation. The system also enables the recommender to easily edit the recommendation before or after multiple links have been distributed, thereby ensuring that the recommender retains control over the content of the confidential recommendation. The control over the recommendation link also includes a capability for changing the link expiration date, temporarily suspending or re-activating a link, and deleting a link.
