Yueh Erh Rahman, Elizabeth A Cerny: Liposome-encapsulated actinomycin for cancer chemotherapy. The United States of America represented by the United States Energy Research and Development Administration, Dean E Carlson, Arthur A Churm, Robert J Fisher, November 23, 1976: US03993754 (119 worldwide citation)

An improved method is provided for chemotherapy of malignant tumors by injection of antitumor drugs. The antitumor drug is encapsulated within liposomes and the liposomes containing the encapsulated drug are injected into the body. The encapsulated drug penetrates into the tumor cells where the drug ...

Lowell Z Shuck: Method for selectively orienting induced fractures in subterranean earth formations. The United States of America represented by the United States Energy Research and Development Administration, Dean E Carlson, David S Zachry, Earl L Larcher, February 1, 1977: US04005750 (79 worldwide citation)

The orientation of hydraulically-induced fractures in relatively deep subterranean earth formations is normally confined to vertical projections along a plane parallel to the maximum naturally occurring (tectonic) compressive stress field. It was found that this plane of maximum compressive stress m ...

Joseph Pasini III, William K Overbey Jr: Method for removal of methane from coalbeds. The United States of America represented by the United States Energy Research and Development Administration, Dean E Carlson, Richard A Lambert, January 27, 1976: US03934649 (70 worldwide citation)

A method for removing methane gas from underground coalbeds prior to mining the coal which comprises drilling at least one borehole from the surface into the coalbed. The borehole is started at a slant rather than directly vertically, and as it descends, a gradual curve is followed until a horizonta ...
