Patent No.: US7862801B2  Issued: 04/Jan/2011

Title: Adhesive dental bleaching compositions comprising polyvinylpyrrolidone

Applicant/Assignee: ULTRADENT PRODUCTS, INC

Application No.: 10/870293   Filing Date: 17/Jun/2004

Abstract:

A dental bleaching composition comprises a dental bleaching agent and a polyvinylpyrrolidone thickening agent. The bleaching composition may include water, flavoring agents, a basic substance and desensitizing agents, as desired. Polyvinylpyrrolidone avoids acid etching and chelation of teeth that were problematic in bleaches using carbomer as a thickener. A delivery system for delivering the bleaching composition comprises the aforementioned dental bleaching composition in combination with a moisture-resistant barrier layer such as a dental tray or a flexible strip of material.

Abstract:

It is intended to provide an antiinflammatory and analgesic preparation for external use whereby side effects of a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory and analgesic drug on the skin can be regulated, the nonsteroidal antiinflammatory and analgesic drug can be prevented from degeneration with time due to a dibenzoylmethane derivative contained as an UV absorbent therein, the dibenzoylmethane derivative can be prevented from crystallization and sedimentation due to an oily phase component contained therein, and the inherent effects of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and analgesic drug can be fully exerted without showing skin irritation caused by the oily phase component, an emulsifier and a thickener.

The above problem can be solved by providing an antiinflammatory and analgesic preparation for external use which comprises a base for external use containing an oily phase component, a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory and analgesic drug and a dibenzoylmethane derivative and in which the total amount of fatty acid esters in the oily phase component is at least thrice as much as the content of the dibenzoylmethane derivative.

This invention relates to modified high surface area materials, such as nanoparticles that are coated with metal ions, and articles treated with the modified high surface area materials. The modified nanoparticles have active sites that bind various gases and/or odorous compounds, thereby removing these compounds from a medium such as air or water. Metal ions are adsorbed onto the surface of the nanoparticle and bound strongly to the surface. By selection of the metal ion, specific gaseous compounds and/or odorous compounds can be targeted and removed efficiently and effectively from both aqueous phase and from the air. The modified nanoparticles are applied to nonwoven webs to provide odor removing articles for industrial and consumer use in refrigerators and trash containers.

Title: Ultrasound Enhancement of Drug Release Across Non-Ionic Surfactant Membranes

Applicant/Assignee: UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA

Application No.: 11/427034   Filing Date: 28/Jun/2006

Abstract:

A method of targeted drug delivery and imaging using nonionic surfactant vesicles (niosomes) in combination with ultrasound. Niosomes have potential applications in targeted drug delivery and imaging because of their ability to encapsulate therapeutic agents and their enhanced uptake by physiological membranes. Ultrasound may be used to mediate delivery non-invasively by altering the niosome membrane structure. Niosomes composed of polyoxyethylene sorbitan monostearate (Tween 61), cholesterol, and dicetyl phosphate were synthesized via a thin film hydration technique and used for encapsulation studies. Carboxyfluorescein dye (CF) was used as a drug model to demonstrate delivery. The amount of dye in the niosomes, the concentration of the vesicles, and their mean particle size after each 5 minute incremental exposure to ultrasound was monitored.

Dye concentration in niosome samples decreased while the population and size distribution of the niosome remained largely unchanged. Ultrasound is demonstrated to enhance the rate of dye diffusion across the niosome membrane non-destructively.

Title: Anti-backflow urinary device

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/405792   Filing Date: 17/Mar/2009

Abstract:

A urinary anti-backflow device is provided which prevents urine from flowing back into the patient's bladder from a urine collection bag. The device comprises a flow tube having an upstream section connectable to an external urinary device secured to a patient and a downstream section connectable to a urine collection bag, a rod within the flow tube, and a stopper which moves along the rod between the downstream and upstream ends of the flow tube. When the upstream section of the flow tube is elevated relative to the downstream section, urine from the patient is free to flow through the flow tube. When the downstream section of the flow tube is elevated relative to the upstream section, urine forces the stopper against the upstream section to prevent backflow.

Title: Cosmetic particulate gel carriers for topically applied active agents

Applicant/Assignee: KOBO PRODUCTS, INC

Application No.: 10/017259   Filing Date: 12/Nov/2001

Abstract:

Gel particles or beads can be prepared by forming a hot aqueous solution of a gelling agent, and discharging the hot gelling agent solution through a discharge orifice into a cold moving stream of hydrophobic liquid so that the gelling agent solution cools rapidly and good quality gel particles coalesce in the cold hydrophobic liquid stream. The cold hydrophobic liquid stream can be contained in a conduit so that the cold hydrophobic liquid stream moves past the discharge orifice and exerts a force on hot solution in the discharge orifice, the force acting to withdraw the hot solution from the discharge orifice. Optionally, the gel particles can be crushable gel beads 10 formed of an agar complex providing cosmetic, pharmaceutical, etc. delivery vehicles for topical delivery of biologically or cosmetically active agents.

Preferred agar beads 10 are complexes of a continuous phase of agar gel 12 in a self-supporting solid or semi-solid form with a restraining polymer 14. Various active agents 16 may be bound to restraining polymer 14, for, example ascorbic acid, lactic acid or papain.

The process involves sequential additions of ascorbic acid and ethoxydiglycol to a first solution of vitamin in water, which are followed by addition of propylene glycol. The high stirring speed that occurs during the additions favors a process of micronization. Mild heating is used to achieve ascorbic acid concentrations equivalent to about 6% in 10% water or higher.

Title: Deodorant patch and method for making

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/724095   Filing Date: 14/Mar/2007

Abstract:

This invention relates generally to an underarm hygiene product having the form of a deodorant patch between a top carrier sheet and a bottom carrier sheet. Deodorant patches dissolve upon contact with the underarm skin and provide a discreet, portable method of remaining fresh in any time or place. Convenient one time dispensing by a flat patch eliminates the need for bulky containers and provides an elegant solution to limitations on quantities of personal care products during airline flights while away from home. This invention also relates to a method of producing the underarm hygiene product.
