Singapore Health Services Pte Ltd and Nanyang Technological University | Date: 2016-08-03

A method of producing an artificial neural network capable of predicting the survivability of a patient, including: storing in an electronic database patient health data comprising a plurality of sets of data, each set having at least one of a first parameter relating to heart rate variability data and a second parameter relating to vital sign data, each set further having a third parameter relating to patient survivability; providing a network of nodes interconnected to form an artificial neural network, the nodes comprising a plurality of artificial neurons, each artificial neuron having at least one input with an associated weight; and training the artificial neural network using the patient health data such that the associated weight of the at least one input of each artificial neuron is adjusted in response to respective first, second and third parameters of different sets of data from the patient health data.

A method is proposed for identifying an anatomical structure within a spatial-temporal image (i.e. a series of frames captured as respective times). A current frame of spatial-temporal medical image is processed using information from one or more previous and/or subsequent temporal frames, to aid in the segmentation of an object or a region of interest (ROI) in a current frame. The invention is applicable to both two- and three-dimensional spatial-temporal images (i.e., 2D+time or 3D+time), and in particular to cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR images). An initialisation process for this method segments the left ventricle (LV) in a CMR image by a fuzzy c-means (FCM) clustering algorithm which employs a circular shape function as part of the definition of the dissimilarity measure.

A cannula includes a first segment configured to reside entirely within a vessel. The first segment includes a proximal exit opening disposed nearer to the heart, and multiple fenestrations disposed distally away from the proximal exit opening near a cannulation site. The fenestrations in combination with the proximal exit opening enable simultaneous perfusion of blood into the cannulated vessel along proximal and distal directions. During a medical procedure, blood introduced into a vessel (e.g., the femoral artery) by way of the cannula can exit the cannula in a manner that provides concurrent blood flow in a first set of directions proximally towards the heart and a second set of directions distally away from the heart. Radially displaceable anchoring elements positionable adjacent to the vessels superficial wall aid retention of the first segment in the vessel. The fenestrations and/or anchoring elements can be arranged obliquely around portions of the cannulas circumference.

We describe a method of monitoring the state of a cell, tissue, organ or organism. The method comprises establishing, for a sample of micro-particles from the cell, tissue, organ or organism, a ratio. The ratio is of a selected polypeptide in microparticles which comprise GM1 gangliosides, preferably which bind to Cholera Toxin B (CTB) (GM1 ganglioside microparticle polypeptide) to the selected polypeptide in microparticles which comprise exposed phosphotidylserine, preferably which bind to Annexin V (Annexin V microparticle polypeptide). The GM1 ganglioside microparticle polypeptide to Annexin V microparticle polypeptide ratio so established may be indicative of the state of the cell, tissue, organ or organism.

The invention relates to multimeric forms of antimicrobial peptides, for example, defensin peptides. The multimeric forms of defensin peptides possesses antimicrobial activity and may be formulated into antimicrobial compositions, pharmaceutical compositions, eyedrop composition, contact lens solution compositions for coating medical devices and the like. The invention also relates to the use of these multimeric forms of peptides, e.g. multimeric forms of defensin peptides for inhibiting and/or reducing the growth of microorganisms in general, including in a host. The invention further relates to a method of preparing multimers of peptides derived from defensins, for example hBD3.
