DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Detection of major HBV integration sites in urine as a biomarker for HBV associated liver cancer This Phase I application is to test the feasibility of using the appearance of major HBV integration sites the viral host junction DNA sequences in the urine of patients infected with the hepatitis B virus HBV as a DNA biomarker for the early detection of HBV associated hepatocellular carcinoma HBV HCC HBV is a major etiological agent that causes more than of hepatocellular carcinoma HCC cases worldwide Despite the availability of a preventive vaccine chronic hepatitis B infection remains a global health issue affecting more than million people worldwide and it is associated with more than deaths annually most of which are due to the development of HBV HCC Although HCC surveillance is implemented for this well defined high risk HBV infected population most HBV HCC remains undetected until late stages by current screening methods such as expensive ultrasound imaging and the insensitive sensitivity AFP blood test Therefore there is an urgent need for a more sensitive biomarker for detecting primary and recurrent HCC The goal of this project is to explore the viability of translating our novel biomarker andquot detection f major HBV integration sites in urineandquot to a noninvasive urine based diagnostic test a UsDx HBV HCC urine DNA test that would allow early detection of new and recurrent HBV HCCs We have detected HCC derived genetic and epigenetically modified DNA in the urine of patients with liver cancer U Screen Dx Inc has performed preliminary experiments that demonstrate the feasibility of this proposal in several key areas The aims are to develop a target enriched NGS assay for detecting HBV host junction sequences HBV JS in urine and to evaluate the appearance of major HBV JS in urine as a biomarker for distinguishing HBV HCC from other liver diseases in HBV infected subjects If successful we will further develop and evaluate the HBV HCC urine DNA test using clinical samples for the early detection of liver cancer in the high risk HBV infected population in Phase II PUBLIC HEALTH RELEVANCE The goal of this study is to explore the feasibility that detection of the major HBV host junction sequences in the circulation can be a biomarker for the early detection of HBV associated HCC Such marker will enable high risk groups such as those chronically infected with HBV to be screened for liver cancer with higher sensitivity thus permitting for early detection of the liver cancer so the prognosis of the disease can be improved

An apparatus for separating and sizing particulate matter, comprising a main frame, infeed conveyor, collection conveyor and a screening assembly including a frame, screen, and an underscreen conveyor mounted underneath the screen. In exemplary embodiments at least one crusher is included. The apparatus converts configuration from a transport mode to an operating mode. Material deposited onto the infeed conveyor is moved forward into the screening assembly. Material falling through the screen is deflected by a deflector onto a collection conveyor. Material passing over the screen drops into the crusher and crushed material drops onto the collection conveyor. Material on the collection conveyor is conveyed to a discharge location. The apparatus components are arranged such that material moves in a uni-directional flow through the apparatus without reversing direction. The apparatus may be mounted on a mobilizing assembly, such as one including endless tracks or wheels, for portability.

Methods, computer-readable media, and systems for scheduling the association of metadata with content. In an embodiment, event information is obtained from a virtual calendar, wherein the event information comprises at least one event detail and one or more parameters defining a time period. First metadata is generated based on the event detail, and is stored, in association with the time period, in a memory. Then, subsequently, during the time period, the first metadata may be retrieved from the memory, and associated with one or more content items generated on the device.
