Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/917016   Filing Date: 12/Aug/2004

Abstract:

A lid for forming an airtight seal to a bowl or dish plate to elongate the life of product therein comprises an impermeable membrane having an outer perimeter larger than the rim of the container and an enforcement ring for enabling the formation of an airtight seal between the membrane and rim of the container under vacuum. The membrane is sufficiently soft to cause it to fill the lower sections or imperfections on the rim, thus enabling the lid to form an airtight seal to almost all household containers. The membrane may be adapted to have sufficient low tensile stress, thereby preventing the vacuum in the container from imploding or collapsing the container even if it has a thin or weak wall. The enforcement ring has vertical and horizontal rings connected to the membrane perimeter to prevent the membrane deformation at both vertical and horizontal directions. The lid may further comprise an air evacuation passageway having an air collection chamber for extracting air from the container and a valve for allowing air to flow out of the container but preventing air from entering. In use, the lid may be sealed to a container by simply pushing the membrane into the container and releasing the membrane to generate a vacuum to affix the membrane to the container, or may be sealed to a container by connecting a vacuum generator to the evacuation passageway to evacuate the container.

Title: Inhibition of anaerobic glucose metabolism and corresponding composition as a natural non-toxic approach to cancer treatment

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/233279   Filing Date: 20/Sep/2005

Abstract:

This invention discloses a method and formulation for treatment/prevention of human and animal cancers. The invention is designed to exploit the vulnerability of cancer with regards to its anaerobic requirement for non-oxidative phosphorylation of glucose to derive energy, which is opposite to the host. The composition is comprised of a combination of one or more of (A) 2,3-dimethoxy-5-methyl-1,4-benzoquinone, ubiquinones (5-45) (B) compound(s) capable of augmenting oxidative phosphorylation such as a riboflavin containing compound and/or ubiquinone (50) (C) 2',3,4'5,7-pentahydroxyflavone or a lactic acid dehydrogenase inhibitor and (D) compounds (s) that antagonize gluconeogenesis from non-glucose carbon based substrates. The combination of these substances should favor oxidative loss of carbon through decarboxylation reactions, suppress gluconeogenesis and initiate collapse of glycolysis in tumor tissue, a chemical manipulation that should be non-toxic or perhaps even beneficial to normal respiring host tissue. Pilot studies indicate the treatment to be effective without side effects.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/988164   Filing Date: 12/Nov/2004

Abstract:

Here we describe the molecular identification of a cDNA encoding a novel serine protease we have termed protease C-E. The deduced amino acid sequence, and it alignment with other well-characterized serine proteases indicates that it is a member of the S1 serine protease family. We have found that the protease C-E mRNA is expressed in pancreas, placenta, prostate, small intestine, stomach, spleen, fibroblasts and epidermis, as well as in certain regions of the brain i.e., cerebellum, cerebral cortex, pituitary and hippocampus. Enzymatically active protease C-E, as produced using the methodologies described herein, is amenable to further biochemical analyses for the identification of physiological substrates and specific modulators.

Title: Method for obtaining ozonized oils and vegetable fats and use of said products for pharmaceutical and cosmetic purposes

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/511025   Filing Date: 28/Apr/2005

Abstract:

This invention is linked to the chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, where the bactericidal, virucidal, parasiticidal and fungicidal properties of the ozonized vegetable oils and fats are considered. The emulsified vegetable oil or fat is driven to react with ozone in a bubbling reactor, covered by a jacket that makes possible to control the reaction's temperature. Ozone reacts with the double bonds present in vegetable oil or fat, giving rise to the formation of different peroxidic species, responsible for the biological action of those products. The ozonized vegetable oils and fats in those conditions are applied with satisfactory and advanced results to the treatment of diseases in diverse medical specialties, such as ophthalmology, dentistry, dermatology, gastroenterology, gynecology, parasitology, and others. Likewise, the cosmetic application of the ozonized vegetable oil and fats is described, considering their oxygenating and revitalizing properties of the skin. The results of the toxicological studies previously performed show that the products obtained according to this process do not show any cross or adverse reaction.

Title: Use of a novel phytonutrient rich bioactive concentrate (Ri-ActiveTM) for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other health disorders

Applicant/Assignee: NATURRI LLC

Application No.: 11/251875   Filing Date: 18/Oct/2005

Abstract:

The present invention is generally related to the discovery of the use of a novel composition (Ri-Active(TM)), containing a concentrate of the bioactives, micronutrients and antioxidants present in the unsaponifiable fraction of rice bran oil or rice germ oil, in the prevention and treatment of health disorders. The novel use of the by-products of rice bran oil or rice germ (and other vegetable oils) industries directly after purification and stabilization for therapeutic purposes is a unique and innovative approach that has been proved in the pilot study conducted by the current inventors. The current inventors have pioneered a new approach to prevent and treat health disorders such as cardiovascular diseases, hypercholesterolemia and diabetes which is both effective and inexpensive. The proprietary technology developed by the current inventors to produce Ri-Active(TM) from rice bran oil by-products or rice germ is very different from others who use these by-products to either isolate or purify individual micronutrients of value for use in other nutraceutical formulations. Most of the by-products of the edible oil refining industry are either discarded or sold at a throw away cost to the soap industry for their free fatty acid content. The novel technology and approach developed by the current inventors to utilize these low cost by-products from the edible oil refining industry and produce a highly effective therapeutic product has yielded a new and valuable use for these materials. This invention extends to the uses (therapeutic usefulness) and cost effectivity of similar whole extract concentrates of unsaponifiable micronutrients prepared from other vegetable oils rich in unsaponifiable fractions. The current discovery specifically covers the uses of Ri-Active(TM) (derived either from rice bran oil or rice germ oil), in preventing or treating cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypercholesterolemia and arteriosclerosis. Ri-Active(TM) contains many unsaponifiable bioactives and antioxidants of rice bran and rice germ in very high concentrations in a natural lipid matrix. These constituents in their natural lipid matrix act synergistically in the treatment of cardiovascular disease and other disorders and therefore the whole extract concentrate containing these constituents is far more efficacious than administering a mixture of procured ingredients in similar concentrations. The efficacy of this novel composition (Ri-Active(TM)) in the treatment of cardiovascular disease risk factors has been proved in the pilot animal study conducted by the current inventors. Ri-Active(TM) has been tested to be safe, and highly effective in small doses.

Title: Use of equol for treating androgen mediated diseases

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/533045   Filing Date: 20/Oct/2005

Abstract:

Equol (7-hydroxy-3(4'hydroxyphenyl)-chroman), the major metabolite of the phytoestrogen daidzein, specifically binds and blocks the hormonal action of 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in vitro and in vivo. Equol can bind circulating free DHT and sequester it from the androgen receptor, thus altering growth and physiological hormone responses that are regulated by androgens. These data suggest a novel model to explain equol's biological properties. The significance of equol's ability to specifically bind and sequester DHT from the androgen receptor have important ramifications in health and disease and may indicate a broad and important usage for equol in the treatment and prevention of androgen-mediated pathologies. Thus, equol can specifically bind DHT and prevent DHT's biological actions in physiological and pathophysiological processes.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/302667   Filing Date: 14/Dec/2005

Abstract:

The use of novel nonionic polymeric thickeners that produce cosmetically useful emulsions of an oil phase and a water phase is described. The thickeners of choice are the urethane dimers of ethoxylated fatty alcohols. These materials were not anticipated to have emulsifying properties. Also, it has been found that the esters of ethoxylated polyols show similar emulsifying behavior, although their uses are limited by their inherent susceptibility towards hydrolysis. Further, many of the emulsions produced with these emulsifiers have a dilatant or shear thickening rheology that is unusual and has unique cosmetic applications. In addition, it is possible to produce high internal phase oil-in-water emulsions, with oil phase concentrations greater than 70%, using these emulsifiers. Finally, many of the emulsions, especially the high internal phase ones, have a characteristic "ring" or vibration that is apparent when their container is tapped. This is a characteristic of so called "microemulsions" that has not been observed in conventional appearing, white (albeit dilatant) emulsions.

Abstract:

Oxygenating agents are used in the present invention for the novel purpose of treating microbial infections. The invention takes advantage of the fact that the increase in tissue pO2 produced thereby can enhance the efficacy of the body's own antimicrobial defenses (including tissue repair), while also improving the efficacy of adjunctive agents that may be co-administered, such as antimicrobial agents, antioxidants, cytokine modulators, endotoxin antagonists and growth factors. The oxygenating agents of the present invention achieve the desired increased pO2 in the tissues without having to resort to the risks and expenses of hyper-baric oxygen therapy (HBO). The oxygenating agents can be administered systemically, regionally, or topically.

Title: Promotion of peroxisomal catalase function in cells

Applicant/Assignee: WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY

Application No.: 10/533124   Filing Date: 27/Dec/2005

Abstract:

The molecular mechanisms of peroxisome biogenesis have begun to emerge: in contrast, relatively little is known about how the organelle functions as cells age. The present inventors characterized age-related changes in peroxisomes of human cells and showed that aging compromises peroxisomal targeting signal 1 (PTS1) protein import, with the critical antioxidant enzyme, catalase, especially affected. The number and appearance of peroxisomes are altered in these cells, and the organelles accumulate the PTS1-import receptor. Pex5p, on their membranes. Concomitantly, cells produce increasing amounts of the toxic metabolite, H2O2, and this increased load of reactive oxygen species (ROS) may further reduce peroxisomal protein import and exacerbate the effects of aging.

Disclosed are novel compositions and methods for restoring catalase in peroxisomes by use of targeted catalase modified at its C-terminus and/or N-terminus, optionally in combination with polypeptides which promote cellular uptake of proteins, to prevent or overcome the changes that follows aging or that are associated with a number of diseases or disorders.

Title: Ultrasound applying skin care device

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/560032   Filing Date: 08/Dec/2005

Abstract:

An ultrasonic skin care device has an applicator head for applying the ultrasound vibrations to a user's skin. The applicator head has a vibrator element and a horn which are integrated into a combined vibration mass that resonates with an electric pulse to produce the ultrasound vibrations. The device is configured to limit the ultrasound upon detection that the applicator head is out of a normal contact with the skin. A load detecting circuit detects whether the applicator head is in a normally loaded condition or in an unloaded condition with reference to electrically equivalent impedance of the combined vibration mass. The combined vibration mass has a structure that restrains vibrations at a center portion of the vibration mass in order to reduce an undesired parasitic resonance, thereby enabling to discriminate the impedance given under the normally loaded condition from that given under the unloaded condition.

Title: Method of obtaining and treating compounds from ozonized unsaturated vegetable oils for pharmaceutical compositions for medical and veterinary use

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/545497   Filing Date: 12/Aug/2005

Abstract:

The invention relates to a method of obtaining a stable product of natural vegetable origin, particularly macadamia oil, which is treated in a reactor in which the oil is exposed to a continuous flow of ozone and, subsequently to a feedback of end gases under the influence of an electromagnetic field. The treatment and production time is significantly reduced under specific conditions in terms of temperature, pressure, gas streams, pH and substance saturation volumes with ozone, which is obtained in an oxygen-fed generator. According to the invention, the reaction causes the formation of a novel compound: topically-applied ozone cream which is used to treat infectious processes. The inventive ozonized cream can penetrate and regenerate the epithelial tissue without causing skin irritations associated with similar known treatment methods.

The compound is stable and the fundamental nature thereof does not tend to alter.

The treated powders are useful in cosmetics such as powder formulations, oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions, anhydrous make-up and lipstick. Treatment can be effected with a linear reactive alkylpolysiloxane having substituted in repeating units in the backbone of the molecule both cationic and anionic groups, for example aminoethylaminopropyl and alkoxy groups. The organosilicon compound can be adsorbed and chemically bonded to the surface of the powder by heat treatment. The alkylpolysiloxane compound can have a degree of polymerization of from 5 to 100, preferably 10-15. A process for producing the treated pigment is also disclosed as are cosmetic formulations made with the treated pigment. The inventive treatment is effective for a wide range of cosmetic powders including inorganic pigments, organic lakes and hard-to-coat powders such as mica-based powders, porous silica and the like.

Title: Multiple wavelength laser workstation

Applicant/Assignee: CYNOSURE, INC

Application No.: 11/035680   Filing Date: 14/Jan/2005

Abstract:

Lasers capable of lasing at at least two wavelengths are provided having a lasing medium which is capable of lasing at a first wavelength and at a second wavelength. An output coupler is positioned along a longitudinal axis at a first end of the lasing medium and a first mirror, movable beam block shutter and second mirror are positioned sequentially along the longitudinal axis of the lasing medium at a second end of the lasing medium. The first mirror is highly reflective at a first wavelength, and the second mirror is highly reflective at a second wavelength while being transparent at the first wavelength. The beam block shutter is movable between a first position along the longitudinal axis of the lasing medium and between the first and second mirrors and a second position away from the longitudinal axis of the lasing medium.

Also provided are laser workstations having two lasers driven by a single electronics drive system in which a single energy storage network is connected to a first laser pump chamber operative to excite a first laser medium and connected to a second laser pump chamber operative to excite a second laser medium. In certain embodiments, a switch connects the single energy storage network to a secondary winding of a high voltage trigger transformer, which is itself connected to the laser pump chambers. These high voltage trigger transformer serve to selectively ionize the excitation source in one of the laser pump chambers such that when the switch is closed, energy from the energy storage network will flow through the pump chamber whose excitation source(s) has been previously ionized.

In other embodiments, the single energy storage network is connected to the excitation sources via active semiconductor switches that permit the release of portions of energy stored in the single energy storage network to one of the lasers, leaving additional energy to be immediately or rapidly released to the excitation source of the first or another laser. Also provided are methods of treating skin having a skin problem using multiple wavelengths of laser energy.

Abstract:

An activator comprising a biocompatible base and a known fungicide in the form of an acid salt are mixed together by the user shortly before being applied to the infection so as to react them chemically to produce the free base of the fungicide thereby rendering the composition capable of penetrating throughout the infected tissue. The free base form has been found to be much more lethal to the fungal infection, particularly in the treatment of onychomycosis. The activator is formulated to be mixed within a few days of or just before application with the fungicide, e.g., terbinafine hydrochloride (an acid salt). Although the free base is subject to degradation and has a shorter shelf life, it was found that mixing just prior to use eliminates problems that could be caused by degradation of an active ingredient. A preferred activator solution also contains a penetration enhancer and a tissue softener.

Applicant/Assignee: J.M. HUBER CORPORATION

Application No.: 11/050238   Filing Date: 03/Feb/2005

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.

Title: Treatment of skin with acoustic energy

Applicant/Assignee: JULIA THERAPEUTICS, LLC

Application No.: 11/295700   Filing Date: 06/Dec/2005

Abstract:

Methods and apparatus are disclosed for applying acoustic energy to the skin whereby the wavefront can be controlled to confine the focused energy to a desired subsurface region. Acoustic waveguides are disclosed which compensate for distortions that otherwise occur when a focused acoustic beam crosses a boundary, such as the transition from a treatment device to a target region of skin. The invention is especially useful with devices that focus ultrasound energy by condensing a propagating wavefront. The invention compensates for the mismatch in acoustic properties of the device's waveguide and the biological tissue that typically cause portions of the collapsing wavefront to lag behind other portions and, thereby, limit the focusing capabilities of acoustic treatment devices.

Abstract:

Apparatus for treating skin using abrasion lotion with particulate includes an appliance and an applicator. The appliance may include a motor for actuating the applicator, for example, by rotation or oscillation. The applicator may include an application surface for impressing and urging particulate upon skin when the surface is contacting skin and the motor is activated. The application surface may be made from a substantially unresilient material or a substantially inabsorbent material. To treat skin, abrasion lotion may be applied either on the surface of the applicator or directly on the skin. The surface may then be placed against skin, and the motor may be activated. When in motion, the application surface impresses particulate of the lotion upon the skin and urges the impressed particulate across the skin, thereby abrading and exfoliating the skin. The applicator may be moved over an area of the skin for complete treatment. The application surface may include a field and a plurality of bosses disposed on the field, with channels defined between adjacent bosses. When the applicator is in motion and the surface contacts skin, the bosses urge and push the abrasion lotion into and through the channels, thereby moving and redistributing the abrasion lotion during operation. Alternatively, the application surface may include a relief field for vectoring particulate upon the skin.

Applicant/Assignee: PHENOTYPE SCREENING CORPORATION

Application No.: 11/083128   Filing Date: 17/Mar/2005

Abstract:

An apparatus and method for nondestructively acquiring images of a plant root system is described. The apparatus includes a substrate for supporting the plant root system, a container for holding the substrate, an x-ray radiation source for generating x-ray radiation and directing the radiation to pass through the plant root system, and an x-ray image capture system for receiving the x-ray radiation having passed through the plant root system and for generating an image of the plant root system based on the radiation. The x-ray radiation source generates x-ray radiation having an energy level in the range of about 8 keV to about 20 keV. In this energy range, the attenuation of the x-ray radiation due to air is minimized and the contrast between the root system and the container and substrate is sufficiently high to provide a resolvable image.

The substrate and container are preferably formed of materials having a low mass density, such as less than about 3 pounds per cubic foot, and a low x-ray mass attenuation coefficient. The low density materials of the substrate and the container introduce comparatively low attenuation of the x-ray radiation when compared to the attenuation introduced by the roots, thereby enhancing the visibility of the root system in the image.

The preferred gelled compositions contain, but are not limited to, the sensitizing haptens, squaric acid dibutylester and diphenylcyclopropenone in optimized blends of Polysorbate 80, Isopropyl myristate uniquely gelled with Polyoxyl 40 stearate to form a penetrant of keratinized epitheliiuim of warts for direct application wherein virucidal pharlacologic action is induced by Th-1 cell mediated immune responses with resultant releases of CD4 helper T cells, CD8 killer T cells and cytokines to attack the human papilloma viruses. The commonly used vehicles with these contact sensitizers are acetone, petrolatum, or water containing emulsion creams which do not have the capacity to penetrate the keratinized wart surfaces and are therefore minimally effective in treating warts.

Abstract:

A method of minimizing wrinkles in the human skin involves stretching out the skin adjacent a wrinkle to flatten the wrinkle and applying a three layer piece onto the stretched adjacent skin and over the wrinkle while holding the skin taut to flatten out the wrinkle. An adhesive inner layer holds the tape on the skin, while an intermediate stiffener layer holds the wrinkle and skin in the stretched out condition. An outer breathable layer covers the intermediate layer and an outer perimeter of the inner layer which cushions a perimeter edge of the intermediate layer and prevents forming lines in the skin by being held in tight contact with the intermediate layer over an extended period of time.

Applicant/Assignee: UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS MEDICA SCHOOL UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS MEDICAL SCHOOL

Application No.: 11/355804   Filing Date: 16/Feb/2006

Abstract:

The present invention discloses that an intratumoral injection of: i) glycolipids with alpha-gal epitope

ii) gene vectors comprising an alpha1,3galactosyltransferase gene

or iii) a mixture of alpha1,3galactosyltransferase, neuraminidase, and uridine diphosphate galactose results in tumor regression and/or destruction. Binding of the natural anti-Gal antibody to de novo expressed tumoral alpha-gal epitopes induces inflammation resulting in an anti-Gal antibody mediated opsonization of tumor cells and their uptake by antigen presenting cells. These antigen presenting cells migrate to draining lymph nodes and activate tumor specific T cells thereby converting the treated tumor lesions into in situ autologous tumor vaccines. This therapy can be applied to patients with multiple lesions and in neo-adjuvant therapy to patients before tumor resection.

In addition to the regression and/or destruction of the treated tumor, such a vaccine will help in the immune mediated destruction of micrometastases that are not detectable during the removal of the treated tumor.

Title: Adjuvant for transcutaneous immunization

Applicant/Assignee: THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Application No.: 11/334349   Filing Date: 19/Jan/2006

Abstract:

A transcutaneous immunization system delivers antigen to immune cells without perforation of the skin, and induces an immune response in an animal or human. The system uses an adjuvant, preferably an ADP-ribosylating exotoxin, to induce an antigen-specific immune response (e.g., humoral and/or cellular effectors) after transcutaneous application of a formulation containing antigen and adjuvant to intact skin of the animal or human. The efficiency of immunization may be enhanced by adding hydrating agents (e.g., liposomes), penetration enhancers, or occlusive dressings to the transcutaneous delivery system. This system may allow activation of Langerhans cells in the skin, migration of the Langerhans cells to lymph nodes, and antigen presentation.
