One-tap Payment Using A Contactless Card
Patent No. 11455626
An authentication application may receive, from a merchant application of a client device, a merchant identifier, a transaction identifier of a transaction, encrypted data, and a location of the client device. The authentication application may decrypt the encrypted data based at least in part on a private key. The authentication application may determine that the contactless card has been used to make a previous purchase with the merchant and that the location of the client device is within a threshold distance of a known location associated with a contactless card. A virtual account number generator may generate a virtual account number and transmit the merchant identifier, the transaction identifier, the virtual account number, an expiration date, and a card verification value (CVV) to a merchant server associated with the merchant to process the transaction using the transaction identifier, the virtual account number, the expiration date, and the CVV.

Methods For Using 5-HMF Analogs With Increased Solubility To Inhibit Or Reverse RBC Sickling
Patent No. 11458144
Methods for administering compounds provide a rapid treatment for sickle cell disease (SCD) to inhibit or reverse red blood cell sickling. The compounds are a group of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF) analogs modified to increase water-solubility. The compounds can be formulated in an aqueous carrier and administered intravenously for immediate uptake into red blood cells (RBCs) within hours, rather than days or weeks. In vitro experiments demonstrated rapid uptake into RBCs and increased O.sub.2 affinity of HbS to an equilibrium point within 30 to 90 minutes. The compounds have a desired level of safety as well as a short half-life, both of which are compatible with acute usage. Thus, the methods of treatment rapidly achieve therapeutic steady-state drug levels, making it possible to deliver a treatment in critical emergency care situations to prevent, reverse and otherwise treat acute sickling or anemia.
