Quotes

The commissioner added, "We take this opportunity to point out that the department is not embarking on an investigation of HOVENSA and its business activities but merely is trying to ensure that the consumers of the Virgin Islands are not short changed in any way with respect to the price they are paying for fuel."
"Another implantable device for treating sinusitis is described in U S Publication No. 2005/0245906 to Makower et al. This application describes a biodegradable polymeric device having a spacer for positioning within a sinus ostium, and a body comprised of a plurality of substance-eluting struts. The struts are configured to lie substantially parallel to the flow of mucus along the sinus cavity walls without substantially touching the walls so that mucociliary transport is not interrupted. It is uncertain how a device of this design would be constructed or deployed. Furthermore, given that the sinus mucosa is a source of water needed for device degradation and drug release, it is questionable whether this device is capable of providing a dosing regimen effective for treating rhinosinusitis because it does not substantially contact the walls of the sinus cavity."
