Method and device for diagnosing an inflammatory process

, : Method and device for diagnosing an inflammatory process. Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1262(3), Sep 17

A diagnostic device and method for diagnosing an inflammatory process at an individual's middle ear. The device comprises a thermally isolated ear piece having a rear end and a front end, an energy receiving element fitted at the front end for heat pickup at a portion of the auditory canal in close proximity with the tympanic membrane. The energy receiving element is inserted into the individual's ear at a reference temperature which is lower than the individual's core temperature and an indicator is associated with the energy receiving element for indicating change in temperature with respect to time.

Endorepellin, the angiostatic C-terminal domain of the heparan sulfate proteoglycan perlecan, inhibits angiogenesis by simultaneously binding to the α2β1 integrin and the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptor 2 (VEGFR2) on endotheli...

The largest group of plant thioredoxins (TRXs) consists of the so-called h-type; their great number raises questions about their specific or redundant roles in plant cells.

Neurospora becomes resistant to sulphonamides by adaptation, not transmissible through the sexual cycle, or by mutation. It has been suggested that adaptation of microorganisms to sulphonamides may be due to increased production of p-aminobenzoic...

We report that when Ir and La halides are deposited on carbon, exposure to CO spontaneously generates a discrete molecular heterobimetallic structure, containing an Ir-La covalent bond that acts as a highly active, selective, and stable heterogene...

In vast expanses of the oceans, growth of large phytoplankton such as diatoms is limited by iron availability. Diatoms respond almost immediately to the delivery of iron and rapidly compose the majority of phytoplankton biomass. The molecular base...
