A novel device for the treatment of vascular malformations, aneurysms, fistulas, and varices utilizing cyanoacrylate tissue adhesives. This invention provides superior control of the adhesive following injection and during the curing process, significantly decreasing the risks attributable to current technology.
The Surface Modified Ceramic Filter (SMCF) provides an inexpensive gravity filtration device for the removal of inorganic chemicals, organic chemicals, and pathogens from water. The surface modification is easily incorporated into traditional ceramic production methods, making this filter ideal for both industrial mass-production and remote operations in developing countries.
Novel derivatives of marmelin are anticancer agents that induce apoptosis, affect cancer stem cells, and inhibit tumor growth. Marmelin analogs have potential as chemotherapeutic agents.
The ToP-SPA measures tongue-palate contact pressure occurring during speech and/or swallowing.
This invention consists of a novel compound and method for treating Polycystic Kidney Disease utilizing a novel liver kinase B1 (LKB1) activator to stimulate AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), leading to inhibition of mTOR-mediated cellular proliferation and chloride-dependent fluid secretion, key components of cyst growth.
This invention uses a photoactive element between graphene electrodes to create a photovoltaic device that not only produces electricity from sunlight, but also transmits its infrared energy for use in an attached thermal energy device.
The invention is a composite system useful for indicating and preventing fatigue on essentially any metallic structure.
A multifunctional photovoltaic-battery (PVB) which represents a new-concept integrated PVB device as a novel power source for photoelectron conversion and energy storage within one single device.
Cervical cancer is one of the most common malignancies worldwide, yet it is clearly preventable by population screening. It has been reported that <5% of women in underdeveloped countries have ever had a Pap test. That is due to shortage of medical resources, shortage of pathologists and cytotechnologists and the limited public awareness regarding screening programs. Some believe that the disease has reached an epidemic proportion with huge human and economic impact that is requiring immediate, innovative practical solutions. Even with the hope of HPV vaccination and the current push for HPV testing as a primary screening method, Pap smear remains to be the best cancer screening method known to mankind. The invention is a new method of using automated cellblock (CB) preparations of liquid-based [ThinPrep + SurePath] and conventional samples to produce virtual slides.
