The serum N-ERC/mesothelin and C-ERC/mesothelin levels were significantly higher in patients with MPM than in those with MMPD, BPD, and BAP.
No difference in serum hyaluronan levels was observed among patients with MPM, MMPD, and BPD.
The ROC curves obtained to evaluate the efficiency of analyzing individual biomarker levels for distinguishing patients with MPM from those with MMPD, BPD, and BAP are shown in Figure 2.
Acceptance into the MMPDS handbook, the official military and aerospace handbook for materials, would open the door for these alloys to be used to design and manufacture flight-critical components in military and civilian aircraft.
The data was presented at the 31st MMPDS Coordination Meeting in March 6-9 by Jiten Shah, program manager for the research project, and Zayna Connor, AFS representative for outside research programs.
If accepted, these will be the third and fourth alloys AFS will have had accepted into the MMPDS handbook.
As per the deal, DSIC will be responsible to support government testing of MMPDS aimed at evaluating the system's effectiveness and readiness for transition to production.
DSIC president and CEO Stanton Sloane said, MMPDS is designed to support DNDO's objective of preventing nuclear terrorism with technology capable of rapidly screening cargo and passenger vehicles for both shielded and unshielded nuclear threats at land and sea ports.
DHS's DNDO will have to analyze Decision Sciences' MMPDS, an entirely passive scanning technology using naturally occurring cosmic ray muons to safely and securely locate potential threats hidden in cargo, vehicles and other conveyances.
The American Foundry Society (AFS) is teaming up with the American Metalcasting Consortium, several metalcasting facilities and airplane manufacturers to begin developing statistical-basis allowables for sand-cast E357 aluminum, which will be qualified, tested and collected following MMPDS procedures and practices.
The group working on the project has verified that the procedures used to produce statistical-basis allowables are approved by the advisory board of the MMPDS handbook.
Defense Logistics Agency will be able to make cast alloy conversion/replacement decisions with confidence due to the statistical data on tensile, compressive, shear and bearing properties from the MMPDS handbook.
