Mimmo Cuticchio: “La Pazzia di Orlando ovvero il meraviglioso viaggio di Astolfo sulla luna”

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

mimmo cuticchioErice (Trapani) Giovedì 4 gennaio Ore 18.00 Teatro Gebel Hamed Mimmo Cuticchio, il più importante erede della tradizione dei cuntisti siciliani e dell’Opera dei Pupi, porterà in scena, per ERICèNATALE, giovedì 4 gennaio, ore 18.00, al Teatro Gebel Hamed, “La Pazzia di Orlando ovvero il meraviglioso viaggio di Astolfo sulla luna”, uno dei capitoli più visionari dell’Opera dei Pupi.“Il meraviglioso viaggio di Astolfo sulla luna” è tratto dal 34° canto dell’Orlando Furioso di Ludovico Ariosto in cui si narrano le mirabolanti avventure dei Paladini di Francia, le contrapposizioni tra Mori e Cristiani, le apparizioni di mostri e maghi, gli incantesimi, le passioni d’amore che accecano i cavalieri distraendoli dai loro doveri. Astolfo, fedele compagno di Orlando che vorrebbe restituire il senno al paladino che ha perso la testa per la principessa Angelica, raggiunge la luna in groppa all’Ippogrifo, il favoloso cavallo alato, accompagnato e guidato da San Giovanni Evangelista.
Il grande artista palermitano, figlio del puparo Giacomo Cuticchio, nel 1973 apre a Palermo il Teatro dei Pupi Santa Rosalia e nel 1977 fonda l’associazione “Figli d’Arte Cuticchio”, che si prefigge di salvaguardare l’arte dell’Opera dei Pupi. “La Pazzia di Orlando ovvero il meraviglioso viaggio di Astolfo sulla luna”, unisce la tecnica del cunto con il teatro dei pupi a scena aperta, svelando al pubblico la tecnica segreta del “puparo”. Mimmo Cuticchio sarà accompagnato da Giacomo Cuticchio, Tania Giordano e Elisa Puleo.
Lo spettacolo è inserito nel programma “ERICèNATALE- Il borgo dei presepi”, promosso dal Comune di Erice e dalla Fondazione Erice Arte.Tutti gli eventi del cartellone di EricèNatale sono ad ingresso gratuito.

Spettacolo: Vertenze Politiche su una Versione Pornografica del Mito di Pasìfae

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

vertenzeRoma dal 11 al 14 gennaio 2018 Carrozzerie n.o.t Via Panfilo Castaldi 28/a (Ponte Testaccio) Orario spettacoli: ore 21.00, domenica ore 18.00 Biglietti: intero: 12 Euro – Tessera Obbligatoria 3 Euro Vertenze Politiche su una Versione Pornografica del Mito di Pasìfae, scritto e diretto da Johannes Bramante. Protagonisti: Francesca Accardi, Davide Paciolla, Guido Targetti. Un mito, dal greco mythos – racconto, è una narrazione di avvenimenti accaduti in un passato remotissimo, quello delle origini; caricato di sacralità, è relativo alle origini del mondo o alle modalità con cui il mondo stesso e le creature viventi hanno raggiunto la forma presente, in un certo contesto socioculturale o in un popolo specifico. Al tempo stesso il mito è la riduzione narrativa di momenti legati alla dimensione del rito. Si tratta quindi di una narrazione appartenente alla tradizione ma non privo di legami con la realtà.
La meccanica del mito è precisa e spietata: al re di Creta, Minosse, viene regalato dal dio del mare, Poseidone, un magnifico toro bianco. Quando, dopo essergli stato favorevole in varie circostanze, Poseidone richiede che il toro gli venga sacrificato, Minosse si rifiuta di immolare la bella bestia. Il dio, irato, si vendica con spietata fantasia: fa sì che la moglie del re di Creta, Pasìfae, si innamori perdutamente del toro bianco. La povera regina comincia, soffrendo le pene dell’amore, ad agognare un congiungimento con il quadrupede che, in quanto quadrupede, predilige le mucche alla donna; la quale però non si dà per vinta. Convince infatti l’architetto di corte, il celebre Dedalo, a costruirle una vacca di legno, dentro la quale ella si potrà accovacciare in attesa che la concupiscenza del toro lo porti ad un amplesso con la struttura di legno – e quindi con lei. Cosa che di lì a poco accadrà. Frutto della passione zoofila di Pasìfae sarà, nove mesi dopo, il Minotauro. Questo è il mito. Semplice, passionale e brutale nel suo essere mito. Lo spettacolo teatrale “Vertenze Politiche su una Versione vertenze1Pornografica del Mito di Pasìfae” fa reincarnare il suddetto mito in una situazione tanto più attuale quanto più affine a quella narrata dai poeti di duemila anni fa: la mitica Isola di Creta diventa la “Creta Costruzioni SpA”, una società italiana, molto italiana, che si occupa di costruzioni, soprattutto nel settore turistico. Minosse, il presidente, ha da tempo adocchiato un terreno dove costruire un grande resort con tanto di piscine e campi da golf, proposito facilmente realizzabile per uno scaltro businessman di alta estrazione sociale e amici giusti, se non fosse che proprio il terreno prescelto è abitato dall’ultimo esemplare di Toro Bianco in Italia, cosa che preclude il permesso di edificazione al nostro costruttore. Ma Minosse non ne vuole sapere di arrendersi alla legge italiana, insieme ai suoi amministratori delegati, Dedalo e Pasìfae, si dà un gran da fare per cercare di aggirare l’ostacolo. Ammazzare il toro? Corrompere le autorità? Comprare giornalisti? Quel che accadrà all’interno dell’ufficio principale della “Creta Costruzioni SpA” sarà un groviglio di complotti e speculazioni, di lotte esterne ed interne, senza scrupoli e senza la costrizione all’ipocrisia, solitamente dettata dall’opinione pubblica. Insomma, sarà una messa a nudo degli animi accesi di tre spregiudicati affaristi, dalla stessa parte soltanto per necessità e devoti solo al capitalismo, in un mondo dove fedeltà, coerenza e ambizione sono termini vacillanti, relativi e spesso pericolosi. Che la storia prenderà una brutta piega quando l’amministratrice delegata Pasìfae comincerà ad avere strane sensazioni va da sé… Il mito, eterno, si compie anche tra cravatte, telefoni e tacchi a spillo. Vertenze Politiche su una Versione Pornografica del Mito di Pasìfae, completa la trilogia del mito di Johannes Bramante, che nella scorsa stagione ha messo in scena Alkestis 2.1 e Il Complesso Di Antigone.

Tra Brescia e Trieste sette morti

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

autostrade“Dopo i 5 morti della notte di San Silvestro, oggi altre 7 vittime. Alle famiglie va il nostro cordoglio, ma non possiamo limitarci a questo, dobbiamo reagire e sollecitare politica ed istituzioni ad intervenire”. Lo afferma Carmelo Lentino, portavoce di BastaUnAttimo, la campagna nazionale sulla sicurezza stradale e contro le stragi del sabato sera, promossa anche da AssoGiovani e Forum Nazionale dei Giovani.“Rinnovo quindi il mio appello – prosegue il Portavoce di BastaUnAttimo -. Non fate finta di niente, mettete in campo tutti gli strumenti per risolvere definitivamente il problema, che è principalmente culturale”.“Come ho già detto, servono maggiori sinergie tra le Istituzioni, un maggiore coordinamento, serve intervenire nella formazione – aggiunge Lentino – portando i giovani ad una maggiore consapevolezza dei pericoli che la strada può riservare. Giovani che continuano a rappresentare la fascia più colpita”.“Per noi – prosegue – formazione, controllo e coordinamento devono essere le parole chiave del 2018 – conclude il Portavoce di BastaUnAttimo – dove per formazione si intende l’introduzione di corsi di educazione stradale già nei primi anni dell’istruzione obbligatoria, per controllo si intende una maggiore percezione della presenza delle forze dell’ordine ed un maggiore pattugliamento stradale (non sono sufficienti solo tutor ed autovelox) e per coordinamento si intende l’introduzione dell’Agenzia Nazionale per la Sicurezza Stradale”.

KBRA Publishes CMBS Research: “The Earthquake Insurance Divide”

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

londonLondon. Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) recently released a research report entitled “The Earthquake Insurance Divide.” In the aftermath of last year’s hurricane season, the topic of earthquake risk appeared to be on the minds of a number of California based CMBS investors. The concerns focused on the potential impact of a seismic event, whether large or small, on assets that may not be adequately insured, if at all.
CMBS, as well as other forms of commercial real estate (CRE) lending, typically require earthquake insurance if a property is located in seismic zone 3 or 4 and the asset’s probable maximum loss (PML) exceeds 20% of the replacement cost of the improvements. While insurance is generally required for these properties, others close to this threshold could still suffer moderate-to-significant damage in an earthquake, but fall under the insurance threshold.In our report, we identified approximately $30.6 billion (1,728 loans) of outstanding private label California conduit collateral securitized between 2010 and Year-to-Date November 2017. We then examined the PML characteristics of the population and provided various observations concerning the volume of loans that may be at higher risk of loss. In addition, we also included PML exposure maps exhibiting collateral that is below the threshold.
What we found was that the proportion of assets with PMLs that were between 18% and 20% is meaningful (10%) when viewed in the aggregate. If we were to expand the range to loans with PMLs from 15% to less than 18%, it would represent a quarter (25%) of the study population.Although the CRE finance industry has drawn a line in the sand with the greater than 20% threshold, transactions with a sizeable proportion of PMLs that are close to 20% may warrant a closer look by the marketplace, as they can pose additional risk to CMBS trusts. Uninsured assets with higher amounts of damage may be more susceptible to borrower defaults and potentially lead to transaction losses.

Advanced TV Leader BrightLine Launches DataCast

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

televisioneBrightLine, the market leader in advanced TV, announced today that it is launching DataCast™, a unified OTT data platform that for the first time will enable advertisers to target and measure across three screens: mobile, desktop and television. Designed to enhance the targeting, delivery and measurement of ads across all connected TV devices in the home, DataCast enables media partners to bring highly targeted campaigns to their advertisers, while providing heightened level of insights and reporting via an array of audience and attribution end points. DataCast also offers BrightLine’s network partners an opportunity to leverage their own unique viewer data, enabling them to maximize the full potential of OTT’s household addressability.
BrightLine’s DataCast platform was built from scratch specifically for connected TV– now viewed in 70 million households — to account for some very core differences between web and mobile approaches that do not effectively port to TV.Jacqueline Corbelli, Founder, Chair and CEO, BrightLine, said, “Our advanced advertising solutions are yielding an incredible trove of household data that holds great value for advertisers. DataCast will enable brands to micro-target tailored messages to specific households based on their psychographic profiles.”DataCast allows partners to bridge an array of data sources ranging from audience data providers to footfall attribution vendors into the connected TV universe. DataCast aims to link the most commonly sought audience segments to TV screens so partners can target specific audiences, such as auto purchase intenders, for example. DataCast then identifies the specific households within the BrightLine OTT footprint that match the target audience segments and feeds that data to supply-side ad servers, which can then create targeted campaigns using enhanced and/or traditional TV commercials.
“DataCast brings to the connected TV screen all the targeting and audience insights advertisers get in web and mobile,” Corbelli said. “It provides for real attribution across screens.”Linda Yaccarino, Chairman of Advertising and Client Partnerships at NBCUniversal, commented, “One of our top goals is to provide marketers more ways to target their messages to the right audience at the right time on the right platforms. Initiatives like BrightLine’s DataCast supports that goal and is another tool for our industry push for a smarter future.”

CISQ Produces Standard for Measuring Technical Debt

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

Carnegie Mellon UniversityThe Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™) today announced that its Automated Technical Debt Measure has been approved as a software measurement standard by the Object Management Group® (OMG®), a not-for-profit technology standards consortium with nearly 30 years of history developing IT-related standards. CISQ, a consortium initiated by OMG and the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, is chartered to create specifications for automating the measurement of software size and structural quality. Today’s announcement is the first standard for estimating future corrective maintenance efforts to remedy structural defects in code.The Automated Technical Debt Measure estimates the effort required to fix critical weaknesses in software code and architecture that are included in the four OMG standards for measuring the security, reliability, performance efficiency, and maintainability of source code. Criticality is determined by the risk and cost to the business. The weaknesses are detected through static analysis, and an algorithm determines the repair effort based on estimates collected from professional developers and an assessment of the complexity of the surrounding code. Corrective maintenance costs can then be estimated by converting the repair effort into the preferred currency.Technical Debt is a metaphor referring to the cost to repair structural quality problems remaining in production code. The cost to fix structural quality problems constitutes the principal of the debt, while the inefficiencies they cause until fixed, such as greater maintenance effort or excessive computing resources, represent compounding interest on the debt. Technical Debt can occur for many reasons: compromises made by technical teams to deliver applications faster; under-scoped initial requirements; inadequate time to refactor code; or inexperience with the architecture or application domain.According to CISQ Executive Director, Dr. Bill Curtis, “Technical Debt saps IT budgets, hinders innovation, and leaves organizations vulnerable to digital disasters. Today’s announcement presents a standardized method for measuring the financial impact of structural weaknesses remaining in code at release. It expresses the cost of software quality in terms the business can understand, including the liabilities incurred if a weakness triggers a disastrous incident or the opportunity cost of having to fix weaknesses rather than develop innovative functionality.”OMG Chairman and CEO, Dr. Richard Soley said, “CISQ is leading the way to establish a common standard to help businesses manage the risk posture of their software systems in financial terms, which is a major reason why OMG sponsored the CISQ measures. The Automated Technical Debt Measure standard is the first of its kind to help businesses estimate corrective maintenance costs, allocate repair effort, address potential trouble areas, and/or decide to replace an application due to excessive Technical Debt.”

Alice nel paese delle meraviglie, lo spettacolo ispirato al romanzo di Lewis Carrol

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

viero 2alice gruppoRoma 6-7 gennaio 2018 Teatro Cassia via Santa Giovanna Elisabetta 69 Doppi spettacoli ore 17.30 e 21.00 Costi: 20 euro poltronissima, 15 poltrona, 13 galleria. E se arrivi a teatro con la tua creazione di un costume o un accessorio della fiaba potresti entrare gratis se sei tra i tre migliori
Madrina la modella e conduttrice sportiva Georgia Viero.Sognare ad occhi aperti non è solo una pratica da bambini. Fantasticare è terapeutico anche per i grandi. E allora la parola d’ordine per tutti è: Largo alla fantasia. Arriva a teatro il varietà magico “Alice nel paese delle meraviglie”. La favola, tratta dal romanzo di Lewis Carrol, che ha fatto sognare numerose generazioni di bambini torna a Roma, dopo una fortunata tournée in giro per il Lazio, con l’originale fantasmagorica versione dedicata alle arti magiche, con acrobazie, prodigi ed incantesimi. Al Teatro Cassia, via Santa Giovanna Elisabetta 69, il 6 e 7 gennaio 2018 (doppi spettacoli ore 17.30 e ore 21.00) sul palco, tra sorrisi, stupore, faranno il loro ingresso: Alice, il Bianconiglio, il Cappellaio Matto, lo Stregatto, la Regina di Cuori, il Brucaliffo e tanti altri artisti acrobati o professionisti delle arti magiche, pronti a regalare un sogno. E se improvvisamente per un giorno ognuno di noi potesse scatenare la propria creatività e trasformarsi in uno dei personaggi della celebre fiaba? Indossate un abito a tema, inventatelo, oppure un accessorio o un dettaglio qualsiasi che ricordino uno dei protagonisti e presentatevi a teatro, dove le tre idee più belle riceveranno un ingresso omaggio. Uno straordinario cast di attori-prestigiatori, diretti dalla regista Francesca Bellucci, guiderà gli spettatori alla scoperta di un mondo nel quale tutto può succedere. il cappellaio magicoAlice (Silvia Sarritzu), la simpatica protagonista del racconto di Carrol, sarà impersonata da una giovane ginnasta acrobata, che lascerà tutti col fiato sospeso compiendo variopinte evoluzioni con nastri e cerchi fatati per sfuggire alla sanguinaria Regina di Cuori (Carla Mazzarella). Al suo fianco lo Stregatto (Mago Manfy) volteggerà sornione grazie alle feline acrobazie e il Bianconiglio (Sacha Bruni) affabulerà i presenti con la sua verve e simpatia. Non mancherà ovviamente il Brucaliffo (Mago Philippe), il Re di Cuori (Filippo Rosho Pieroni) e il Cappellaio Matto, impersonato dal prestigiatore Alessio Masci, tra le cui mani vedremo accadere incredibili prodigi con le carte da gioco. Madrina dell’evento la bellissima modella e conduttrice di programmi sportivi Georgia Viero, protagonista di un video nel quale invita a celebrare la fantasia: “Alice era tra i miei personaggi preferiti, forse perché un po’ le somiglio e non solo di aspetto…ma la verità è che come lei io adoro le avventure. Oggi siamo tutti un po’ affetti dalla sindrome del Bianconiglio che pensava sempre di non avere abbastanza tempo. Per una cosa non dimenticate di averne: sognare. Mai smettere di farlo. E’ il motore della vita”. E per questo finale a sorpresa: un gruppo di piccole “Alice”, delle scuole Fuego Latino (diretta dal ballerino e coreografo Simone Ripa) e Urban Artists danzerà sulle note della colonna sonora del film Disney, coreografata da Merilisa Stigliano, suonata dai giovani musicisti dell’associazione musicale Sei Corde.

Campidoglio, destinati oltre 425 milioni di euro per Metro A e B

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

metro-romaRoma. Oltre 425 milioni destinati all’ammodernamento delle linee Metro A e B, la creazione di una nuova flotta con l’acquisto di 14 nuovi treni e la manutenzione del parco rotabile. Roma Capitale ha ottenuto dal Ministero delle Infrastrutture dei Trasporti 425,52 milioni per interventi diretti sulle linee metropolitane A e B.“Un vero e proprio restyling delle metropolitane di Roma. Con queste risorse avremo nuovi treni a servizio dei cittadini, diminuendo quindi i tempi di attesa alle banchine e dando nuova linfa al trasporto pubblico locale. Un’iniezione di liquidità destinata a rendere Roma al pari delle altre capitali europee, un risultato ottenuto da questa Amministrazione dopo mesi di incontri e tavoli di lavoro. Grazie alla programmazione e al piano che abbiamo messo in atto rinnoviamo le linee metropolitane della Capitale che scontano un gap manutentivo decennale, migliorando la circolazione dei treni”. Lo dichiara in una nota la Sindaca di Roma, Virginia Raggi.“Da mesi questo Assessorato ha intrapreso un serio lavoro basato su un’attenta programmazione, una stretta collaborazione con il Ministero delle Infrastrutture e dei Trasporti, pensata unicamente a favore della città. Un’attività che ha messo assieme una squadra di tecnici che ha lavorato e stilato una lista dei progetti più urgenti. Negli ultimi 20 anni le metro hanno accumulato un enorme debito manutentivo, con questo pacchetto abbiamo messo nero su bianco una vera operazione di rinnovamento. Nel piano sono previste anche le manutenzioni straordinarie rotabili, il rinnovo dell’armamento nella tratta Anagnina-Ottaviano e per il rinnovo del sistema di controllo traffico, comprensivo di un nuovo impianto per informazioni al pubblico”, spiega l’Assessora alla Città in Movimento, Linda Meleo.

Un libro con il meglio di “PNR”

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

Con il 2018 arriva il nuovo libro “Un Anno di Paganini non Ripete” edito da Pietro Paganini e Benedetta Fiani. Il testo raccoglie i contributi di Pietro Paganini e degli autori dell’ originale ed innovativo newszine settimanale ‘PNR – Paganini non Ripete’ che offre un’agenda 2018 per il lavoro, il welfare, la scuola, e in generale la società e l’economia, in vista delle prossime elezioni.
Il libro è organizzato in un percorso rapido, suddiviso in quattro sezioni: Diritto e Giustizia, Economia, Filosofia, Innovazione. Ciascuna offre strumenti per far luce sulle problematiche più attuali, soluzioni e chiavi di lettura per chi vuole formarsi una propria opinione.
“L’obiettivo è quello di riproporre al lettore il lavoro di un anno intero, in una sintesi fruibile e facile da leggere. Il nostro obiettivo è quello di dare ai partiti e movimenti politici idee sulle riforme da fare. Tuttavia, non offriamo solo delle ricette, ma un’analisi più profonda delle dinamiche sociali e delle radicali trasformazioni in corso. Ai candidati offriamo uno strumento per comprendere i fenomeni e per provare a dare delle soluzioni” – così l’ideatore del nuovo newszine, Pietro Paganini – “Il testo raccoglie il pensiero di molti professionisti, politici, manager, accademici e ricercatori su quanto sta avvenendo nei loro campi e discipline di interesse. Ogni nostro articolo risponde a due domande: perché è importante affrontare alcuni problemi più di altri e come risolverli”.
“L’approccio – conclude Paganini – è quello del liberale classico. Infatti, nel solco delle politiche di modernizzazione e semplificazione burocratica sostenute dai Governi di Silvio Berlusconi e riproposte nell’attuale campagna elettorale dalla coalizione di centro destra, offriamo un’agenda Liberale, che affronta i problemi secondo il metodo sperimentale con l’obiettivo di migliorare la convivenza tra cittadini e di aumentarne la prosperità”.

The VITOM® 3D system offers a high level of user friendliness owing largely to improved ergonomics. A modular system design helps support efforts to increase efficiency while reducing procedure cost.
With its U.S. release of the VITOM® 3D system, KARL STORZ now provides three-dimensional visualization capabilities for performing delicate surgical tasks required for precision surgery. Using the new system, surgeons gain the advantages of enhanced depth perception to better distinguish distances between anatomical structures. Several current Vizient, Inc., member hospital organizations were among the first U.S. early adopters of VITOM® 3D technology.“In procedures that require very precise work, such as neurosurgery, the new capabilities of the VITOM® 3D system provide surgical options that were previously unavailable and can enhance patient outcomes. Additionally, the system can offer a lower acquisition cost through its modular design and use of a single video tower that benefits both endoscopy and microscopy,” says Charles H. Wilhelm, President and COO, KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. “With the introduction of the VITOM® 3D system, KARL STORZ is demonstrating the value of a range of new, forward-thinking solutions that are driven by our commitment to the needs of surgeons and hospitals in today’s quickly evolving health care environment.” “Hospitals and providers are looking for innovations that offer unique and cumulative benefit over other products available on the market today.

Masimo Announces CE Marking and Release of Oxygen Reserve Index™ rainbow Lite Sensors

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the CE marking and release of RD rainbow Lite SET™ sensors, which enable the monitoring of Masimo Oxygen Reserve Index™ (ORi™) and RPVi™, an improved PVi® that allows clinicians to assess fluid responsiveness noninvasively and continuously1 at a fraction of the cost of invasive methods, and at a fraction of the cost of rainbow® sensors. rainbow Lite sensors utilize twice as many wavelengths of light as SET® sensors, allowing rainbow Lite sensors to provide ORi and RPVi along with Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry.
ORi is the first noninvasive and continuous parameter to provide insight into a patient’s oxygen reserve in the moderate hyperoxic range. In conjunction with SET® pulse oximetry, ORi may provide advanced warning of impending desaturation, which may allow clinicians to intervene sooner. For example, in a study of 25 pediatric patients undergoing general anesthesia with orotracheal intubation, researchers found that ORi helped clinicians identify impending desaturation a median of 31.5 seconds before noticeable changes in oxygen saturation (SpO2) occurred.2 In another recent study of 106 adult patients scheduled for surgery with arterial catheterization and intraoperative blood gases analyses, researchers found a significant relationship between change in PaO2 and change in ORi.3 In addition, ORi may provide insight into oxygen reserve when titrating patients who are receiving supplemental oxygen. Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “rainbow Lite sensors allow clinicians, who depend on powerful SET® pulse oximetry technology, to augment their patient monitoring with ORi and newly introduced RPVi. Given the positive reception of ORi in available markets, and feedback from clinicians who see great value in the benefits of ORi monitoring, we are excited to make ORi and RPVi accessible via the cost-effective solution represented by RD rainbow Lite SET. Hospitals that standardize on RD rainbow Lite SET will pay only nominally more per sensor than for SET®.”
Masimo RPVi is a multi-wavelength version of Pleth Variability Index (PVi). RPVi is designed to provide enhanced assessment of changes in fluid volume compared to PVi5, which has been shown in over 90 independent clinical studies to be as effective as invasive monitoring methods.6. With the addition of RD rainbow Lite SET, the RD family of sensors is now available in three levels of capability: RD SET, utilizing two wavelengths (2 LED) and featuring SET® pulse oximetry; RD rainbow Lite SET, which utilizes four wavelengths (4 LED) and adds the ability to measure ORi and RPVi; and RD rainbow SET, which utilizes over seven wavelengths (7+ LED) and enables the measurement of additional advanced noninvasive parameters such as SpHb® (total hemoglobin), SpCO® (carboxyhemoglobin), SpMet® (methemoglobin), and SpOC™ (oxygen content).Like RD SET sensors, RD rainbow Lite SET sensors are designed to maximize patient comfort and optimize clinician workflow. The sensors are lightweight and have a flat, soft cable with smooth edges, so that they lie comfortably on a patient’s hand or foot. The sensors feature an intuitive sensor-to-cable connection, with tactile and audible feedback to ensure a proper connection, and have graphics printed on both sides to assist with application.Devices with ORi and RPVi measurements and RD rainbow Lite SET sensors have not received FDA 510(k) clearance and are not available for sale in the United States.

AgeX Therapeutics Identifies Genes Implicated in Tissue Regeneration and Cancer

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 gennaio 2018

cancerAgeX Therapeutics, Inc. (AgeX), a subsidiary of BioTime, Inc. (NYSE American: BTX), today announced a newly-published peer-reviewed study that reveals genes implicated in tissue regeneration, cancer, and aging. The study, by scientists at AgeX and BioTime, in collaboration with Insilico Medicine, utilized artificial intelligence (AI) technology to parse millions of gene expression data points to decipher the complex mechanisms controlling natural tissue regeneration. The results, published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Oncotarget, showed that the candidate genes are expressed differently in tissues early in development when they are capable of regeneration compared to later in life when regeneration can no longer take place. Surprisingly, some of the genes, including one highlighted in the study, COX7A1, displayed a rare profile of being nearly universally dysregulated in diverse types of cancer. The discoveries may lead to novel strategies to induce Tissue Regeneration (iTRTM) in the context of trauma or age-related degenerative disease, as well as treat and diagnose cancer.“It is rare to find genes implicated in tissue regeneration, let alone with abnormal expression in so many diverse cancer types such as those of the breast, lung, kidney, bone, and muscle,” said Michael D. West, PhD, CEO of AgeX and co-CEO of BioTime. “AgeX has certain rights to use the associated patent applications and to commercialize related therapeutic and diagnostic applications. Since we believe unlocking the natural ability of the human body to regenerate tissues afflicted with degenerative disease is a very large market opportunity, we are aggressively developing products using the technology.”A short video is available online describing the discovery and its implication for product development at AgeX. Included in the video is a discussion of an iTR product designated RenelonTM, which, in its first generation form, utilizes a repurposed drug and may therefore have a relatively short development timeline.“The embryonic-to-fetal transition (EFT) deciphered in this study is emerging as a wonderful new arena in which to explore the enhancement of regenerative capacity in old age, which is the core of AgeX’s mission,” said Aubrey de Grey, PhD, VP of New Technology Discovery at AgeX. “The discovery of a subunit of the respiratory chain as a key EFT marker dovetails this research fascinatingly with age-related changes in mitochondrial function, which have long been a priority in the anti-aging field and in my own work.”“BioTime and AgeX Therapeutics are at the forefront of regenerative medicine,” commented Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD, CEO of Insilico Medicine. “By utilizing their heavy investment in large-scale, highly-controlled experiments and their unique expertise in regenerative medicine we managed to develop the AI-powered system for cell and tissue sample profiling. We utilized this system to identify the important genes implicated in the EFT, and possibly in aging. This collaboration started in 2015 when deep leaning methods were in their infancy and required two years to diligently validate the outcomes. We learned that domain expertise is just as important as expertise in AI.”
