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.
A novel class of small molecule Alpha, Beta-ABAD interaction inhibitors for the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease.
This invention introduces carbon-biomaterial nanohybrids for use in high-performance, low-cost optoelectronic devices such as infrared detectors.
