Patent
Hansa Medical | Date: 2017-05-31

The invention relates to a method for improving the benefit of a therapy or a therapeutic agent to a subject. The method comprises administering to the subject an agent which reduces Fc receptor binding of serum IgG molecules in the subject; and subsequently administering said therapy or said therapeutic agent to the subject. The invention also relates to a method for reducing the effect of pathogenic autoantibodies in a subject, the method comprising (a) administering to the subject an agent which reduces Fc receptor binding of serum IgG molecules in the subject and optionally (b) subsequently subjecting the subject to a treatment which removes endogenous autoantibodies. The invention also relates to a kit for carrying out a method of the invention.

A tracheal tube apparatus includes a cannula having first and second ends. An inflatable cuff is formed on the cannula between the first and second ends. A conduit extends from the cuff for introducing an inflating fluid into the cuff when it is desired to inflate the cuff and removing inflating fluid from the cuff when it is desired to deflate the cuff. A gauge for indicating the inflation pressure of the cuff is coupled in the conduit.

It has been demonstrated that the level of HBP increases in individuals that subsequently develop severe sepsis. Accordingly, the level of HBP, HBP/WBC ratio or HBP/NC ratio in an individual can be used to determine whether or not an individual is at risk of developing severe sepsis.


Patent
Hansa Medical | Date: 2015-12-02

A polypeptide isolated from S. pyogenes is described, having IgG cysteine protease activity. The protease is designated IdeS, Immunoglobulin G-degrading enzyme of S. pyogenes. A polypeptide comprises SEQ ID NO: 1 and variants and fragments thereof having IgG cysteine protease activity or the ability to generate an immune response against S. pyogenes in an individual. Polynucleotides encoding these polypeptides and the polypeptides may be used in generating an immune response in an individual. IdeS protease inhibitors may be used in the treatment of S. pyogenes infection.

The vast majority of septal perforations are plugged by providing a septal perforation prosthesis in a limited number of flange sizes and shapes, stem sizes and stem lengths. Insertion of the prosthesis is simple and positive, and does not require, for example, folding or wadding up one flange and pulling the thus-folded or -wadded up flange through the perforation. Likewise, removal of the prosthesis does not require the occasionally traumatic pulling of a flange through the perforation.


Patent
Hansa Medical | Date: 2016-06-13

A method and apparatus for treating a stricture in a body lumen. The method comprises (a) sensing pressure being exerted by a treatment device on the stricture, (b) determining if enough force is being exerted on the stricture, (c) if enough force is being exerted on the stricture, timing the application of enough force, (d) determining if too much force is being exerted by the treatment device on the stricture, (e) if too much force is being applied to the stricture, decrementing the force being applied to the stricture, (f) determining if not enough force is being applied to the stricture, (g) if not enough force is being applied to the stricture incrementing the force being applied to the stricture, and (h) repeating (a)-(g) until (i) a desired pressure has been maintained on the tissue for a desired time. The apparatus comprises a device for exerting pressure on the stricture, a controller for controlling the amount of pressure the device exerts on the stricture, and a pressure sensor for sensing the pressure being exerted on the stricture by the device.


Patent
Hansa Medical | Date: 2016-05-12

It has been demonstrated that the urinary level of HBP increases in individuals that have a urinary tract infection. Accordingly, the urinary level of HBP in an individual can be used to determine whether or not an individual has a urinary tract infection.
