WO/2016/127243 DOOR HINGE PIN REMOVAL DEVICE||WO||18.08.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/000029||FALLS, Roger||FALLS, Roger|
A device for removing a hinge pin includes a body, a slide pin mounted to the body for first sliding movement relative thereto between a neutral and an extended longitudinal position along the body, an impactor coupled to the slide pin for second movement in unison with the first movement, and a biasing member, coupled to both the slide pin and the body, for biasing the slide pin towards the neutral position relative to the body. In operation, while i) the impactor is registered with the hinge pin and is distanced therefrom and ii) the slide pin is moved away from the neutral longitudinal position, releasing the slide pin causes a) the slide pin to move towards the neutral position by the biasing member and b) the impactor to impact the hinge pin.

||PCT/CA2016/000034||GLOBAL DYNAMICS INCORPORATED||MARTIN, Daniel, George|
A commercial fishing trawl has a net and a mouth opening defined by a head line, a foot line, and side lines. The mouth opening is spread by a plurality of foil segments threaded on one or more of the head line, foot line, or side lines. Foil segments may also be threaded on tag lines or foil lines attached about the mouth opening to spread and maintain the mouth opening as the trawl is towed through the water, behind a tow vessel.

||PCT/CA2016/000016||POWER PIN INC.||OLSON, Brian R.|
A pintle hitch apparatus has a pintle hook with a base portion adapted at a front end thereof for attachment to a towing vehicle, a bend portion extending rearward from the base, and a pin extending upward from a rear end of the bend portion. A recess is defined in a top surface of the bend portion, and a wear member is releasably attached in the recess such that a top surface of the wear member is above the top surface of the bend portion.
WO/2016/127253 METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR ENHANCING THE ACTIVITY OF BONE MORPHOGENETIC PROTEINS||WO||18.08.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050121||SPATAFORA, Michael||SPATAFORA, Michael|
A method and system for enhancing BMP activity involves the combined administration of a zinc compound with the BMP. The zinc is delivered by a carrier that is adapted to release the zinc, over a period of time, at the site where the BMP is delivered. The concomitant delivery of the zinc compound has been found to enhance the activity of BMP at the delivery site.
WO/2016/127256 DEVICE FOR MANAGEMENT OF AN OPEN ABDOMEN||WO||18.08.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050124||ST. MICHAEL'S HOSPITAL||DE REZENDE NETO, João Baptista|
A device for management of an open abdomen includes a belt having first and second end portions. The belt is positionable to extend partially around a patient's torso in a taut configuration with the end portions positioned on opposed sides of an incision in the patient's abdomen. A first connector is at the first end portion and a second connector is at the second end portion. The connectors are positionable adjacent each other on the opposed sides of the incision. At least one cinching device is connected to and extends between the connectors. The cinching device is positionable to extend over the incision when the connectors are positioned adjacent each other on opposed sides of the incision. The cinching device is adjustable to cinch the end portions towards each other to hold the incision in an at least partially closed position.

||PCT/CA2016/050128||THE HOSPITAL FOR SICK CHILDREN||POST, Martin|
Alveolar-like macrophages and a method for generating alveolar-like macrophages from hemangioblasts is provided. The method comprises the steps of: i) culturmg the hemangioblasts in a hematopoietic-inducing medium comprising vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), stem cell factor (SCF) and interleukin-3 (IL-3) for a sufficient period of time to generate macrophages, and ii) culturing the macrophages in an alveolar macrophage-inducing medium comprising granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF), and optionally macrophage colony stimulating factor (M-CSF), under suitable conditions and for a sufficient period of time to yield alveolar-like macrophages.
