Disclosed are methods of quantifying microflora in vaginal samples. Quantitative assessment of vaginal microflora by real-time pcr to create a profiling of lactobacillus species, gardnerella vaginalis, atopobium vaginae, megasphaera type 1 and type 2 and bvab2 permits evaluation of bacterial vaginosis.
|Last gasp hold-up circuit using adaptive constant on time control|
A hold-up circuit coupled to a first node to receive an input voltage and to provide a hold-up voltage includes an inductor, a constant on-time buck-boost control circuit configured to drive a high-side power switch and a low-side power switch to operate in a buck mode and a boost mode of operation, and an energy storage capacitor. When the input voltage is greater than a predetermined threshold, the buck-boost control circuit is configured in the boost mode to drive the low-side power switch with constant on-time pulses and to charge the energy storage capacitor under non-synchronous operation.
|Temperature control gasper apparatus|
A temperature control gasper apparatus for vehicle interiors such as aircraft cabins. Airflow temperature, volume and orientation are integrated and controlled by the gasper apparatus—at the point of use of the gasper apparatus.
|Energy storage means for last gasp / impedance limited applications|
A voltage converter is coupled to an input voltage for boosting the voltage to a much higher level so as to take advantage of smaller capacitors due to the quadratic energy equation ½*cv̂2. The voltage converter has at least one boost converter having an inductive element coupled to the input voltage.
|Gas turbine pattern swirl film cooling|
A turbine airfoil includes a blade having a leading and trailing edges and an internal cooling circuit, and a plurality of film holes extending between the internal cooling circuit and an exterior of the blade. The plurality of film holes are shaped to generate a swirling flow exiting the film holes adjacent the leading edge to thereby enhance local convection and provide an insulating barrier to gaspath flow..
|Stress relieving slots for turbine vane ring|
A turbine vane ring has a radially outer and inner annular shrouds defining therebetween an annular gaspath. Circumferentially spaced-apart airfoil vanes extend radially across the gaspath between the outer and the inner shrouds.
|G-protein coupled receptor-associated sorting protein 1 as a cancer biomarker|
A method for determining whether early stage cancer is present in a subject comprises detecting the expression level of gasp-1 in the subject by detecting the amount of gasp-1 peptide fragments present in a biological sample of the subject. Because cancer can be detected at an early stage, therapeutic targeting may be initiated before cancer reaches late stage (e.g., before the development of overt symptoms).
