Prediction of a small-for-gestational age (sga) infant

A method of predicting a sga infant in a patient at a pre-symptomatic gestational stage is described. The method comprises a step of assaying a biological sample from the patient for an abundance of a plurality of metabolite biomarkers selected from the 19 metabolite biomarkers of table iv, correlating the abundance of the plurality of metabolite biomarkers with a metabolite fingerprint of sga shown in table iv, and predicting sga based on the level of correlation between the abundance of the plurality of metabolite biomarkers and the metabolite fingerprint of table iv..

Baseball catcher's protective handwear

Baseball catcher's protective handwear including a catcher's mitt and an improved non-connected inner glove for wearing inside the mitt, the inner glove including (1) a tactile palm-surrounding portion which leaves at least the little finger, ring finger, middle finger and thumb substantially uncovered, (2) a supple index-finger portion that has padding affixed thereto over the phalanges, and (3) padding affixed over the metacarpal region of the palm adjacent to the index finger, thereby to provide continuous protection to the most crucially-vulnerable parts of a baseball player's hand, while simultaneously providing properties of gripping-finger-and-thumb freedom, glove-interior surface feel and in-mitt hand adjustment closely similar to that of a naked hand inside an outer glove.. .


Trigger finger strengthening device

A trigger strengthening device that is made of a plastic, rubber or metal handle with a metal coil spring device molded into the pistol grip handle of the device so the user can exercise and strengthen the trigger finger while holding the device in a pistol grip fashion. This will isolate the exercise to the trigger finger alone, while keeping the rest of the hand gripped firmly on the pistol grip/handle of the device.


Targeted disruption of t cell receptor genes using engineered zinc finger protein nucleases

Disclosed herein are methods and compositions for inactivating tcr genes, using zinc finger nucleases (zfns) comprising a zinc finger protein and a cleavage domain or cleavage half-domain in conditions able to preserve cell viability. Polynucleotides encoding zfns, vectors comprising polynucleotides encoding zfns and cells comprising polynucleotides encoding zfns and/or cells comprising zfns are also provided.

Venue identification using sensor fingerprints

When a mobile device is known to be at a venue, readings from one or more sensors of the device are used to generate a sensor fingerprint of the venue and/or a venue category corresponding to the venue. The sensor fingerprint indicates typical sensor readings for the one or more physical sensors for devices that are located at the venue and/or venues of the same category.

Method for acquiring information of client terminal, server and computer-readable medium

The server disclosed in the present disclosure receives a feature identification transmitted by a feature acquisition device, acquires information of a client terminal corresponding to the feature identification according to the feature identification, and transmits the acquired information of the client terminal to the feature acquisition device. The present disclosure can apply feature identification techniques such as a fingerprint sensor to the social life, thus not only facilitating a client terminal (e.g., a user) to exchange personal information rapidly but also avoiding problems such as information loss or record error..
