This closed-loop system enables real-time measurement AND precise control of droplet properties such as volume, surface area and surface tension. The feedback control system continuously calculates changes in droplet parameters and automatically drives corrective action to maintain desired droplet characteristics.

The latency from time of exposure to tumor development potentially allows time for intervention to block the mechanism(s) that trigger asbestos-induced carcinogenesis. This invention proposes administering to a patient having mesothelioma an antibody specific for HMGB1 to neutralize activity against HMGB1 and inhibit mesothelioma cell growth. It also propose use of an anti-HMGB1 antibody to prevent, delay or reduce the incidence of malig...Fri, 29 May 2015 17:46:47 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19647Mesothelioma Biomarkerhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19646Malignant mesothelioma, which is associated with asbestos or erionite exposure, is an aggressive and lethal cancer of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many internal organs and is most commonly found in the lungs. The inventors have discovered that misregulation of a protein called High Mobility Group Box 1 (HMGB1) is linked to mesothelioma in individuals exposed to asbestos. HMGB1 is a member of the high-mobility group protein super-family that plays important roles in biological processes like transcription, DNA repair, proliferation and inflammation. After asbestos and erio...Fri, 29 May 2015 15:43:43 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19646Monoclonal antibody cell lines for the insecticide "Thiamethoxam"http://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19638The two monoclonal antibody cell lines secrete different thiamethoxam antibodies. Thiamethoxam is a new class of neo-nicotinoid insecticides that are used to treat sucking and chewing insects such as aphid, whiteflies, leadhoppers and some beetles. This class of insecticides is one of the most widely used to protect crops and environmental contamination is a possibility. To protect the consumer, a sensitive specific screening assay was needed. The antibodies can determine thiamethoxam at concentrations below 100 ppb. Immunassay companies such as EnviroLogix will use this antibody to develop an...Thu, 28 May 2015 17:00:37 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19638Ultrasound method for transforming algaehttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19637Thu, 28 May 2015 14:26:52 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19637Natural product Stat3 Inhibitorshttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19629Wed, 27 May 2015 17:07:04 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19629Loop-Mediated AMPlification (LAMP) Primers that Specifically Detect Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. nebraskensishttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19627Wed, 27 May 2015 14:42:46 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19627Panel of robust lincRNAs as pan-cancer diagnostic and prognostic biomarkershttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19600Tue, 26 May 2015 13:22:38 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19600Natural product inhibitors of Stat3 and NF-kappaBhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19597Tue, 26 May 2015 12:21:58 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19597Nucleotide Sequence of Shrimp Actin Promoter and Its Use in Genetic Transformation Biotechnologyhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19513The use of molecular biology techniques to produce pathogen resistant strains of shrimp through genetic transformation technology is considered a highly promising strategy for control of shrimp viral diseases. A major challenge to current development of such technology is the lack of a suitable host-derived promoter to drive the effective expression of desirable genes in shrimp. To meet this urgent need for the development of transgenic shrimp, we have recently employed molecular cloning and sequencing techniques and isolated and identified a putative promoter gene from litopenaeus shrimp (L. ...Thu, 21 May 2015 12:55:22 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/19513Method for localization of atypical sequences in big datahttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/12288Wed, 10 Apr 2013 19:38:39 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/12288Spatiotemporal chaos computing with adjustable noise immunity levelhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/12287Wed, 10 Apr 2013 18:40:16 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/12287A novel Stat3 inhibitor that suppresses growth, viability, survival and migration of human breast and glioma cells in vitrohttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/12286Researchers have discovered a new chemical compound that blocks the cancer causing biological molecule called Stat3, and by doing so controls growth and existence of human cancer cells. The compound strongly inhibits the activated form of Stat3, and consequently attenuates Stat3 functions in cancer cells. Accordingly, treatment of human breast cancer and glioma cells in culture leads to inhibition of cell growth and survival, and the ability of the tumor cells to migrate. Altogether, the studies provide data to support the compound as a potential new drug to treat human cancers that show evide...Wed, 10 Apr 2013 16:31:48 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/12286A combined instrument for Raman and LIBS (Laser-induced breakdown) spectrometry, utilizing a single laser source and single spectrographhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/6349Tue, 25 Jan 2011 12:19:15 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/6349Process for Direct Transesterification of Microalgal, Yeast, or Oil Seeds in Ionic Liquidshttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/5166Mon, 10 May 2010 12:59:48 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/5166 Homogeneous Antibody-based FRET Immunoassayshttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/5076Wed, 28 Apr 2010 18:02:05 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/5076Two-Dimensional Digital Surfaced Grid of High Resolution Bathymetry (Including SeaBeam multibeam) and Topography around the Island of Hawaiihttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4739Mon, 15 Mar 2010 19:04:12 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4739HydroxiRem - The Most Cost-Effective Advanced Oxidative Process for Wastewater Purificationhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4734Fri, 12 Mar 2010 16:45:17 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4734Double Grating Sagnac Fourier Transform Spectrometerhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4732Fri, 12 Mar 2010 16:45:16 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4732Hybrid Solid-State/Electrochemical Photoelectrode for Hydrogen Productionhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4730Fri, 12 Mar 2010 16:45:12 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4730Discovery of a New Microtubule-Stabilizing Agent Named Taccalonolide Ahttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4725Fri, 12 Mar 2010 16:45:03 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4725Genetically Engineered Banana with Resistance to Banana Bunchy Top Virushttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4431Thu, 07 Jan 2010 17:43:53 GMTdjleong@hawaii.eduhttp://universityofhawaii.technologypublisher.com/technology/4431
