* The JPAD
study enrolled individuals with type 2 diabetes who were over the age of 30 and had no evidence of CVD.
2 was a multicenter prospective cohort study of 2,536 Japanese patients with T2DM who previously participated in the open-label randomized Japanese Primary Prevention of Atherosclerosis with Aspirin for Diabetes (JPAD
) trial, which ran from 2002 to 2008.
In the overall JPAD
2 population, the dementia incidence rate was 3.6 per 1,000 person-years in the low-dose aspirin group, compared with 4.9 per 1,000 person-years in controls, for a highly significant 35% relative risk reduction in a fully adjusted multivariate intention to treat analysis.
Airborne Systems' jTrax Navaid (Navigation Aid) system relies on technology derived from ruggedised modules from the US Army/USAF Joint Precision Aerial Delivery System (JPADS
) programme, which employs GPS navigation and steerable parachutes to accurately insert payloads up to an Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) in size into a landing zone.
supports the safety of using low-dose aspirin in diabetics for primary prevention," he said.
According to Cote, given the success American forces have had with the JPAD
system, other nations, including Canada, are becoming interested in the technology.
has been tested and deployed successfully in the 2,000-pound range, DeVoe said.
uses a global positioning system, steerable parachutes, and an onboard computer to guide loads to a designated point on a drop zone.
Beginning in August 2006, the US Air Force, Marine Corps and Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan have used the Joint Precision Airdrop Delivery System (Jpads
) in the form of the Strong Enterprises 'Screamer'.
They have fielded a new Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS
) to directly drop supplies and equipment to Joint and Coalition forces with unprecedented accuracy.

Specifically, US airpower is undergoing a "revolution in airdrop technology." (26) Although the army serves as technical manager for the Joint Precision Air Drop System (JPADS
), which enables precision airdrop from 24,000 feet and higher--well above the threat altitudes that bedevil rotary-wing operations--it was developed from air Force basic research.
