Title: Pharmaceutical composition for the management of tumors

Applicant/Assignee: COUNCIL OF SCIENTFIC & INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH

Application No.: 11/288968   Filing Date: 29/Nov/2005

Abstract:

The present invention relates to the effect of naturally occurring compounds on tumor development. As an example of proof, we used low

non-toxic doses of three compound e.g. Calcium D-glucarate, a naturally occurring Ca++ salt of D-glucaric acid

Nicotinamide (NA), a naturally occurring vitamin and butyric acid (BA), a naturally occurring saturated short chain fatty acid. 7,12 dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA), which is a very potent skin carcinogen and is an environmental pollutant, was used for skin tumor development. Experiment was performed up to 30 weeks. All the above-mentioned compounds were used either alone or concomitantly any two or all the three.

In the positive control group 100% tumorigenesis was attained in 28 weeks, use of single compound led to the inhibition of DMBA induced tumorigenesis between 33 to 47%, use of two compounds resulted in the 73 to 80% reduction in tumorigenesis but the concomitant use of three compounds resulted into 100% inhibition of tumor development at the end of 30 weeks. This led us to conclude that the concomitant use of Cag, NA and BA in combination of two is useful for preventing skin tumor development for a sort or long period of time. But the concomitant use of all the three compounds, as described, exhibited the perfect synergistic effect in preventing the tumor development completely. This strategy should be equally effective in the management of benign and possibly malignant tumor in any organ caused by any mean.

Abstract:

A selectively alterable intermittent tattoo ink is a type of tattoo ink that is invisible or visible until an activating chemical is applied to it, creating a chemical change in the ink pigment which results in the ink being visible, invisible, partially visible or changing color. A tattoo is formed by the injection of the selectively alterable intermittent tattoo ink such as a chemically reactive pH sensitive pigment, along with an inert carrier and a temporary activating agent, (so the ink will be temporarily visible), into the skin with a traditional tattoo gun. The invisible tattoo ink can then be activated by the application of a chemical activating agent either to the skin over the tattoo site or by a normal or abnormal physiological chemical change within the body. The activating agent is removed by washing, the application of a neutralizing agent or by the natural metabolic functions of the body resulting in the tattoo being invisible or in its deactivated state once again.

Applicant/Assignee: THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY

Application No.: 09/759552   Filing Date: 12/Jan/2001

Abstract:

An electrostatic spray device that maintains a consistent charge-to-mass ratio in order to maintain a consistent target spray quality is disclosed. During steady state conditions, the high voltage power supply adjusts the output voltage level in response to changing environmental and/or operating conditions. During transient conditions such as start-up, shut-down and changing flow rate conditions, the high voltage power supply ensures that the charge-to-mass ratio is maintained. During, start-up, for example, the high voltage power supply charges the high voltage electrode to a predetermined voltage level before the product is delivered to the charging location.

During shut-down, the product delivery is stopped before the high voltage power supply shuts off power to the high voltage electrode, and during changes in product flow rate, the voltage level of the high voltage electrode is adjusted to maintain a consistent charge-to-mass ratio.

Applicant/Assignee: J.M. HUBER CORPORATION

Application No.: 11/823073   Filing Date: 26/Jun/2007

Abstract:

Coated particles of metal (such as calcium) silicate that exhibit excellent odor neutralization and sebum absorption properties when present within certain cosmetic and/or personal care formulations and suspensions are provided. Uncoated calcium silicate exhibits a high pH level that may have a deleterious effect upon such cosmetic and/or personal care compositions, thereby rendering the overall composition ineffective for its intended purpose, particularly if the calcium silicate is present in its usual state at high loading levels. Alternatively, if certain materials present within personal care compositions exhibit a sufficiently low pH level, the effectiveness of such calcium silicates may be compromised as well.

Such novel coated/treated calcium silicates thus permit high loadings of this beneficial odor neutralizing/sebum absorbing additive within cosmetic and/or personal care formulations without causing any appreciable instability issues or viscosity modification concerns or allow for coexistence with such low pH materials without any appreciable reduction in performance capabilities of the calcium silicates themselves. Certain personal care compositions comprising these novel coated calcium silicate particulates are encompassed within this invention as well.

Abstract:

A method of minimizing or reducing the toxicity of a retinoid having a free carboxyl group and the resulting modified retinoids are described. The method comprises the step of esterifying the carboxyl group of the retinoid with a highly sterically hindered compound, which is preferably a secondary or tertiary alcohol. The resulting retinoid esters are rendered much less toxic than the starting or parent retinoid. This process provides a retinoid ester analog of reduced toxicity so that it may be administered orally with minimal side effects and with a much greater therapeutic window. The modified retinoid compounds are useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of all diseases and disorders where retinoid compounds have been shown effective.

Abstract:

A method of minimizing or reducing the toxicity of a retinoid having a free carboxyl group and the resulting modified retinoids are described. The method comprises the step of esterifying the carboxyl group of the retinoid with a highly sterically hindered compound, which is preferably a secondary or tertiary alcohol. The resulting retinoid esters are rendered much less toxic than the starting or parent retinoid. This process provides a retinoid ester analog of reduced toxicity so that it may be administered orally with minimal side effects and with a much greater therapeutic window. The modified retinoid compounds are useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of all diseases and disorders where retinoid compounds have been shown effective.

Title: Compressed cellulose pop-up sponge head or body band and method of use

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/001839   Filing Date: 12/Dec/2007

Abstract:

A non-fabric head or body band is made from compressed cellulose pop-up sponge material for cooling the wearer. The band comprises a reversible strip of pop-up sponge material in which one or more holes or passageways are formed, the ends of which are connected by an elastic band. The band is wetted causing the pop-up sponge material to expand, such that the inner and outer surfaces are approximately [5/8]th of an inch apart, between which is held a supply of water/liquid. The inner surface is substantially in contact with the wearer, while the outer surface is exposed to the elements. During the cooling process, the strip draws heat and/or sweat away from the user, into the cellulose material, and toward the outer surface of the strip, allowing relatively rapid evaporation of sweat and dissipation of heat from the cellulose material as it is cooled from exposure to the elements. The band can repeatedly be reversed to provide a further cooling effect by placing the cooler side of the strip against the user and in turn exposing the warmer/sweat side to the elements, thereby recycling the cooling process.

It has been shown that tosylchloramide compounds can be used even for all diseases of the skin and viral mucosa causing formation of vesicles and itching, and they can lead to similar results as those obtained when they are used to treat corresponding diseases in tissues and organs. They not only provide quick relief of the acute symptoms and cure, but they also reduce frequency of recurrence. The inventive use is characterised in that it leads to very good treatment results, entirely independently of the form of preparation used, and it does not have to be administered in one specific manner. Relatively low amounts of tosylchloramide active principle can provide complete cure.
