Patent
Urigen Pharmaceuticals, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Goldberg and Meenan | Date: 2017-01-04

The present invention is directed to a pharmaceutical composition comprising: (1 ) a therapeutically effective quantity of sodium pentosan polysulfate; (2) a quantity of a penetration enhancer sufficient to improve the bioavailability of the sodium pentosan polysulfate; and (3) optionally, a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier and to methods for the oral administration of sodium pentosan polysulfate with improved bioavailability for the treatment of interstitial cystitis and other urinary tract diseases and conditions. Such compositions and methods allow the administration of sodium pentosan polysulfate at lower dosages to reduce the frequency and severity of side effects.

Cathodoluminescence performed in the scanning electron microscope brings the advantage of localized excitation of individual microscopic structures. When luminescent structures are characterized, the intensity, wavelength, polarization and angular emission of the luminescence are all of interest. The invention provides an apparatus for determining the angular distribution of the radiated light, and in particular provides the user with rotational symmetry which is essential for the principle of measurement. This is compatible with additional polarization and spectral bandpass filtering methods used to characterize the luminescence and understand the specimen.

Herein disclosed is an expansion device comprising at least one expanding segment; an actuator; and a connector linking the at least one expanding segment to the actuator such that when the actuator is activated, the expanding segment expands or retracts. The actuator is propelled by hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric power. Also disclosed herein is a method expanding a portion of a tubular comprising providing an expansion device comprising at least one expanding segment, an actuator, and a connector linking the at least one expanding segment to the actuator such that when the actuator is activated, the expanding segment expands or retracts; and placing the at least one expanding segment inside the tubular.

Tall wind towers can be erected using a mobile tilting frame comprising a major gin pole and a minor gin pole having a longitudinal axis. The tilting frame has a support cable connecting the major/minor gin poles. The minor gin pole can pivot relative to the major gin pole so that the longitudinal axis of the minor gin pole can be perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the major gin pole.

Herein disclosed is an apparatus comprising an expandable tubular; and at least one section of the expandable tubular having a larger outer diameter than the remainder of the expandable tubular, forming at least one complete centralizing ring or at least one partial centralizing ring. In an embodiment, at least one complete centralizing ring or at least one partial centralizing ring is configured to centralize the expandable tubular when the tubular is in use; and wherein at least one complete centralizing ring or at least one partial centralizing ring has the same diameter as the expandable tubular after the tubular is radially expanded. Also disclosed herein are method of using and method of making the apparatus.


A method for treating LNAPL source zones using a cost effective LNAPL source zone technology to degrade residual LNAPL, by introducing bioremediation amendments comprising nutritional supplements in quantities, locations, and depths required to stimulate and sustain the anaerobic biodegradation of an LNAPL source zone; monitoring the LNAPL source zone for adverse conditions that decrease anaerobic LNAPL biodegradation; eliminating any identified adverse conditions to sustain LNAPL biodegradation; and maintaining the water with nutritional supplements in quantities, locations, and depths required to stimulate and sustain the anaerobic biodegradation of LNAPL.

Tall wind towers can be erected using a mobile tilting frame comprising a major gin pole and a minor gin pole having a longitudinal axis. The tilting frame has a support cable connecting the major/minor gin poles. The minor gin pole can pivot relative to the major gin pole so that the longitudinal axis of the minor gin pole can be perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the major gin pole.


Patent
Parsons Brinckerhoff | Date: 2014-07-14

Herein disclosed is a method of protecting a tubular or a component attached to the tubular, comprising making two sections of the expandable tubular into two complete centralizing rings or two partial centralizing rings having a larger outer diameter than the remainder of the expandable tubular, wherein the two complete centralizing rings or partial centralizing rings are on two ends of the component. Also discussed herein is an assembly comprising an expandable tubular, a component attached to the tubular, a sleeve over the component and an adhesive; wherein the adhesive fully covers the space between the inside diameter of the sleeve and the outside diameter of the component. The sleeve remains in place when the tubular is placed down hole. Related methods and assemblies are discussed in further details.

Patent
Parsons Brinckerhoff | Date: 2015-04-15

Herein disclosed is an insulated wire comprising an insulating dielectric sleeve made with ultraviolet (UV) light cured material. The dielectric sleeve may be a first coat, an intermediate coat, or a last coat for the wire. The dielectric sleeve has a dielectric range of no less than 1000 volts per mil. Also disclosed is a method of making an insulated wire comprising applying a coating material to the wire and curing the wire under UV light to form an insulating dielectric sleeve. This method may be added to an existing insulated wire production process. A system for forming such UV cured insulating coating is also disclosed.
