U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Virginia (Jan. 15)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 15 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Virginia.

*** Alcatel Lucent Assigned Patent for Method and Apparatus for Handoff in a Wireless Network ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 15 -- Alcatel Lucent, Paris, has been assigned a patent (8,351,943) developed by Vladan Jovanovic, Leesburg, Va., for a "method and apparatus for handoff in a wireless network." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In response to a determination that a received pilot signal identification is not present in a current neighbor list of a mobile station, a network controller identifies one of a plurality of sectors associated with the missing pilot signal identification that is a most likely handoff candidate. In one embodiment, the most likely handoff candidate is determined as the sector that is closest to the mobile station. When the most likely candidate is identified, a handoff may be initiated between the mobile station and the identified sector. The handoff may be accomplished by activating a traffic channel for the mobile station in the identified sector." The patent application was filed on Dec. 28, 2006 (11/647,094).

*** Virginia Inventor Develops Patent for Freeze-dried Plasma Formats for the Trauma Care Field ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 15 -- Irina B. Bakaltcheva, Springfield, Va., has developed a patent (8,349,367) for a "freeze-dried plasma formats for the trauma care field." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Disclosed are freeze-dried plasma formats specifically designed for the trauma care field. Blood plasma is subjected to a glucose removal step, a protein fraction up-concentration step and addition of stabilizers prior to freeze-drying. Preferable stabilizers are glutamine dipeptides, glutamine and glycine. The glutamine based formulation is added direct to plasma and serves three main purposes: 1) Increases stability of plasma proteins and stabilizes pH in freeze-dried state; 2) Increases stability of plasma proteins against Gamma Irradiation and thus allows for the application of a terminal sterilization step; 3) Introduces supplements beneficial to the trauma patient."
