  • Patent number: 9969789
    Abstract: CD47+ disease cells, such as CD47+ cancer cells, are treated with an agent that blocks signalling via the SIRP?/CD47 axis. The agent is a human SIRP? fusion protein that displays negligible CD47 agonism and negligible red blood cell binding. The fusion protein comprises an IgV domain from variant 2 of human SIRP?, and an Fc having effector function. The IgV domain binds human CD47 with an affinity that is at least five fold greater than the affinity of the entire extracellular region of human SIRP?. The fusion protein is at least 5 fold more potent than a counterpart lacking effector function.

  • Publication number: 20150125559
    Abstract: A method of constructing a data architecture for use in identifying connections between perturbagens and genes associated with a type of periorbital dyschromia. The method includes providing a gene expression profile for a keratinocyte, fibroblast, melanocyte or melanoma cell, which has been exposed to at least one perturbagen, and comparing the gene expression profile to a control cell from the same cell line. Genes that are differentially expressed in response to the perturbagen are identified by comparing the gene expression profiles of the control cell and the test cell. An ordered list of identifiers representing the differentially expressed genes is created according to the differential expression of the genes. The ordered list is stored as an instance on a computer readable medium. The steps are then repeated to construct a data architecture of stored instances.

  • Patent number: 8747875
    Abstract: An insecticidal composition comprising stabilized pyrethrins or pyrethroids is provided. Such composition includes stabilizing effective amount of N,N-dialkyl fatty acid amide solvents and certain ultraviolet-light absorbers. In such composition, the pyrethrins or pyrethroid can retain their insecticidal activity for an acceptably long period of time. Therefore, an advantage of this invention is to provide a topical pyrethrins or pyrethroid based insecticide which can remain effective in light over a long time period. Another advantage of this invention is to provide a stabilized topical pyrethrins or pyrethroid insecticide insecticidal formulation containing a high concentration of the active pyrethrins or pyrethroid ingredient to minimize the volume of formulation required.

  • Patent number: 8741874
    Abstract: Insecticidal compositions having insecticide and disinfectant activity are provided. Preferably, the insecticidal composition contains both an insect control agent and a disinfectant. Particularly low levels (i.e., below 20%) of at least one hydrocarbon are introduced as a solvent. The insecticidal compositions further comprise an emulsifier, buffer and antifoaming agent. These insecticidal compositions are particularly suitable for delivery in a spray for non-industrial environments. In use, the present insecticidal compositions may be applied directly to or in or around any area where it is desired to control pestiferous insects and the fungi, bacteria, viruses and other contaminants associated with them.

  • Publication number: 20140137808
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an insect repelling device that may serve as an effective barrier against ticks. The insect repelling device may include a band of technical fabric, with the fabric being very stretchable. The insect repelling device may be worn around the ankles, wrist or head. The insect repelling device may be worn in pairs on each ankle and/or wrist. The insect repelling device may have an open, tubular design and be made of a high performance, nylon/ polyester fabric, allowing a user to easily insert the foot or hand and fit the device around the ankle or wrist area. Each insect repelling device may be pre-treated with an insecticide or insect repellant, such as Permethrin. In use, the insect repellant device may be effective at preventing biting insects, such as ticks, from crawling onto the user, for example from crawling up the legs of the user.
