Improved transcutaneous organ function measurement

The present invention relates to a method for determining an organ function in a subject, comprising the steps of: providing a first concentration-time curve obtained by transcutaneously measuring in a body fluid at a first position background fluorescence in at least one first time point and fluorescence of an indicator compound in at least a second, a third, a fourth, a fifth, and a sixth time point; providing a second concentration curve obtained by transcutaneously measuring in a body fluid at a second position background fluorescence in at least one seventh time point and fluorescence of an indicator compound in at least a eighth, a ninth, a tenth, an eleventh, and a twelfth time point; fitting the first and the second concentration curve into a kinetic model representing at least four diffusion compartments; and thereby determining an organ function in a subject. The invention further relates to a device for determining an organ function according to the method of the present invention, said device comprising a first sensor for transcutaneously measuring fluorescence of an indicator at a first position, a second sensor for transcutaneously measuring fluorescence of an indicator at a second position; and a data processing unit for fitting the values obtained by the sensors into a kinetic model of one of the preceding claims.

Method and rapid quantification of an analyte in breath

A method of determining the concentration of an analyte of interest in breath. The method includes obtaining a disposable cartridge comprising a reaction chamber, a liquid chamber, and a window to permit determination of a color intensity in the reaction chamber, directing a volume of breath into the cartridge, and initiating a sequence whereby liquid is released from the liquid container into the reaction chamber to cause a reaction which produces a change in the intensity of a color viewable through the window.

Antibodies with modified affinity to fcrn that promote antigen clearance

The present inventors discovered that antigen uptake into cells is facilitated by an antibody having human fcrn-binding activity at the plasma ph and a lower antigen-binding activity at the early endosomal ph than at the plasma ph; such antibodies can increase the number of antigens to which a single antibody molecule can bind; the reduction of antigen in plasma can be facilitated by administering such an antibody; and antibody pharmacokinetics can be improved by using such antibodies.. .

6-nitro-2,3-dihydroimidazo[2,1-b]oxazoles and a process for the preparation thereof

The present invention relates to newer generation of triazoles, tetrazoles, isoxazoles, urea and sulphonamide functionalities containing 6-nitro-2, 3-dihydronitroimidazooxazoles agents of formula 1, their method of preparation, and their use as drugs for treating mycobacterium tuberculosis, mdr-tb and xdr-tb either alone or in combination with other anti-tubercular agents. In the present invention, new generation 6-nitro-2, 3-dihydronitroimidazooxazoles agents also show acceptable pharmacokinetic properties and synergistic or additive effects with known anti-tubercular drugs..

Bicycle driving device

A bicycle driving device including a shaft rotatably mounted on a part of a body frame; two crank arms perpendicularly disposed at both ends of the shaft so as to be symmetrical with each other at 180° with respect to a center of the shaft as a base point; a pedal attached to a tip of the crank arm; a gear mounted at one end of the shaft, which is provided with a chain; and balance weights disposed in a predetermined plane parallel to a surface formed by a rotary motion of the crank arm for generating kinetic energy equivalent to the kinetic energy generated by rotary motion of the crank arm and the pedal, wherein each mount position of those balance weights is set to be adjustable in an arc with a predetermined radius with respect to an axial center of the shaft.. .
