This document corrects and replaces the press release that was issued by Pacific Safety Products Inc. on December 18, 2016 at 12:50 p.m. (EST). Pacific Safety Products Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PSP) ("PSP" or the "Company"), a leading North American manufacturer of advanced armour and personal protection solutions, reports that its board of directors (the "Board") has concluded, based on information currently available to it, that the unsolicited offer received from an affiliate of MKU Limited ("MKU") to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of PSP, including those issuable upon conversion of PSP's outstanding convertible debentures, for $0.25 in cash per share (the "MKU Offer") does not constitute a "Superior Proposal" as defined in the arrangement agreement (the "Safariland Agreement") dated November 10, 2016 between PSP and Med-Eng Holdings ULC, a Canadian wholly-owned subsidiary of Safariland, LLC ("Safariland"). As previously announced, the Board requested certain additional information from MKU and its advisors in order to assist the Board in its determination as to whether the MKU Offer constitutes a "Superior Proposal". Among other matters, those requests included evidence of internal or external financing sufficient to enable MKU to complete the proposed transaction without undue risk or delay. While MKU has provided certain of the requested information over the past several days (including as recently as this morning), the Board was not sufficiently satisfied that MKU would be able to complete the proposed transaction without undue delay taking into account all financial, legal, regulatory and other aspects of the MKU Offer. With the assistance of its financial and legal advisors, the Board has therefore concluded that the MKU Offer does not constitute a "Superior Proposal" under the Safariland Agreement. Consequently, the Board re-affirms its prior recommendation with respect to the pending transaction with Safariland to be considered at the annual and special meeting of shareholders which is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on December 19, 2016. If and when further information becomes available to the Board, PSP will update shareholders accordingly. PSP shareholders and prospective investors are advised to carefully review the Safariland Agreement and consult with their professional advisors before trading in securities of PSP.

ARNPRIOR, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 5, 2016) - Pacific Safety Products Inc. ("PSP" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PSP), a leading North American manufacturer of advanced armour and personal protection solutions, announced today that it has received an unsolicited offer from an affiliate of MKU Limited ("MKU") to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of PSP, including those issuable upon conversion of PSP's outstanding convertible debentures, for $0.25 in cash per share (the "MKU Offer"). The Board of Directors of PSP (the "Board") is, together with if financial advisor and legal counsel, reviewing the MKU Offer to determine whether it constitutes a "Superior Proposal" as defined in the arrangement agreement between PSP and Med-Eng Holdings ULC, a Canadian wholly-owned subsidiary of Safariland, LLC ("Safariland"), announced on November 10, 2016 (the "Safariland Agreement") and has provided notice of such review to Safariland. At this time, the Board has not changed its recommendation with respect to the pending transaction with Safariland. In order to constitute a Superior Proposal pursuant to the Arrangement Agreement, among other conditions, the Board must determine that the MKU Offer is reasonably capable of being completed without undue delay, taking into account all financial, legal, regulatory and other aspects of the MKU Offer and MKU. In the event that the Board determines that the MKU Offer constitutes a "Superior Proposal" under the terms of the Safariland Agreement, it will immediately advise Safariland of such determination. Safariland will then have a period of five business days (the "Response Period"), during which it may offer to amend the terms of the Safariland Agreement. However, in such event, Safariland is under no obligation to make such an offer. If, within the Response Period, Safariland offers to amend the Safariland Agreement such that the Board determines that the MKU Offer would cease to be a Superior Proposal, PSP will be required to enter into an amendment to the Safariland Agreement and implement the amended agreement. Subject to the determination of the Board described above, if, within the Response Period, Safariland does not offer to amend the Safariland Agreement, or if the proposed MKU Offer is determined to continue to constitute a Superior Proposal following a proposed amendment to the Safariland Agreement, PSP may accept the MKU Offer, terminate the Safariland Agreement, pay to Safariland the agreed termination fee of $780,000 and enter into a definitive arrangement agreement with MKU (the "MKU Agreement"), all in accordance with the terms of the Safariland Agreement. The Board cautions that there can be no assurance that the MKU Offer will lead to the termination of the Safariland Agreement and the execution of an arrangement agreement with MKU, or that the transaction contemplated by the MKU Offer will be approved by shareholders or consummated. PSP shareholders and prospective investors are advised to carefully review the Safariland Agreement and consult with their professional advisors before trading in securities of PSP.

This review summarizes the literature describing the molecular mechanisms of arsenic-induced oxidative stress, its relevant biomarkers, and its relation to various diseases, including preventive and therapeutic strategies. Arsenic alters multiple cellular pathways including expression of growth factors, suppression of cell cycle checkpoint proteins, promotion of and resistance to apoptosis, inhibition of DNA repair, alterations in DNA methylation, decreased immunosurveillance, and increased oxidative stress, by disturbing the pro/antioxidant balance. These alterations play prominent roles in disease manifestation, such as carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, diabetes, cardiovascular and nervous systems disorders. The exact molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in arsenic toxicity are rather unrevealed. Arsenic alters cellular glutathione levels either by utilizing this electron donor for the conversion of pentavalent to trivalent arsenicals or directly binding with it or by oxidizing glutathione via arsenic-induced free radical generation. Arsenic forms oxygen-based radicals (OH•, O2 •-) under physiological conditions by directly binding with critical thiols. As a carcinogen, it acts through epigenetic mechanisms rather than as a classical mutagen. The carcinogenic potential of arsenic may be attributed to activation of redox-sensitive transcription factors and other signaling pathways involving nuclear factor κB, activator protein-1, and p53. Modulation of cellular thiols for protection against reactive oxygen species has been used as a therapeutic strategy against arsenic. N-acetylcysteine, α-lipoic acid, vitamin E, quercetin, and a few herbal extracts show prophylactic activity against the majority of arsenic-mediated injuries in both in vitro and in vivo models. This review also updates the reader on recent advances in chelation therapy and newer therapeutic strategies suggested to treat arsenic-induced oxidative damage. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.

Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing | Year: 2011

Over the last few decades, the research for new fault detection and diagnosis techniques in machining processes and rotating machinery has attracted increasing interest worldwide. This development was mainly stimulated by the rapid advance in industrial technologies and the increase in complexity of machining and machinery systems. In this study, the discrete hidden Markov model (HMM) is applied to detect and diagnose mechanical faults. The technique is tested and validated successfully using two scenarios: tool wear/fracture and bearing faults. In the first case the model correctly detected the state of the tool (i.e., sharp, worn, or broken) whereas in the second application, the model classified the severity of the fault seeded in two different engine bearings. The success rate obtained in our tests for fault severity classification was above 95%. In addition to the fault severity, a location index was developed to determine the fault location. This index has been applied to determine the location (inner race, ball, or outer race) of a bearing fault with an average success rate of 96%. The training time required to develop the HMMs was less than 5 s in both the monitoring cases. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

IEEE Transactions on Magnetics | Year: 2011

Previous magnetic dipole localization algorithms using gradient data attempt to find the position of the magnetic source at the measurement time only. Based on the direct inversion of the magnetic gradient tensor, these methods provide results that can be highly sensitive to temporal noise in data. To avoid a temporally scattered solution, a recursive approach is proposed that is promising for estimating the trajectory and the magnetic moment components of a target modeled as a magnetic dipole source using data collected with a gradiometer. In this study, the determination of target position, magnetic moment, and velocity is formulated as a Bayesian estimation problem for dynamic systems, which could be solved using a sequential Monte Carlo based approach known as the "particle filter." This filter represents the posterior distribution of the state variables by a system of particles which evolve and adapt recursively as new information becomes available. In addition to the conventional particle filter, the proposed tracking and classification algorithm uses the unscented Kalman filter (UKF) to generate the prior distribution of the unknown parameters. The proposed method is then demonstrated by applying it to real data collected when an automobile was passing by a gradiometer either on a straight or a curved track. The results indicate that the recursive method is less sensitive to noise than the direct inversion solution, even if not all the components of the gradient tensor were used. © 2006 IEEE.

2013 10th IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control, ICNSC 2013 | Year: 2013

Performing distributed computation over underwater wireless sensor networks is challenging because no particular node may know the exact network size and structure. Recent techniques for estimating network structure or size are impractical for accomodating underwater networks made of a combination of fixed and mobile sensors. A solution is proposed to estimate dynamic network structures based on node-to-node intermissions. The current approach is more general than existing techniques and it enables distributed computing over underwater networks. In particular, broadcasts are considered and an adaptable network-structure estimation technique is derived. Simulation results support the proposed solution. © 2013 IEEE.

Cholera diarrhea is still a major health challenge for a large part of globe. Global replacement of Vibrio cholerae classical biotype by El Tor biotype, emergence of O139 serogroup and rapid spread of antibiotic resistant strains indicate the continuous evolution in V. cholerae. In this study, 114 V. cholerae O1 serotype Ogawa isolates, collected from different cholera outbreaks in different regions of India between 2004 and 2007 were subjected to biochemical, immunological and molecular characterization. All the isolates were PCR positive for various toxigenic, pathogenic and regulatory genes, viz. ompW, ctxB, rfbO1, tcp, zot, rtxC, ace, hlyA, ompU and toxR. The antibiogram studies of isolates revealed the resistance towards several antibiotics including nalidixic acid, co-trimoxazole, streptomycin, nitrofurantoin and polymyxin B. However, antibiogram of the strains confirmed susceptibility to tetracycline and chloramphenicol in all the isolates. This study also substantiated the wide spread of class 1 integrons and SXT elements (mobile genetic elements for antibiotic resistance) in clinical isolates in India. Sequencing of cholera toxin (ctxB) gene revealed the replacement of traditional ctxB of El Tor biotype with ctxB of classical biotype in all the O1 El Tor strains collected since 2004. In addition, in 2007, a new variant of O1 El Tor strain with further modifications in ctxB of classical biotype is discovered among the Indian isolates. Copyright 2009 Elsevier B.V.
