Title: Topical/on-the-skin estrogen cream, lotion, ointment, hair tonic, shampoo and wound healing powder

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/475797   Filing Date: 27/Jun/2006

Abstract:

The Claimed Invention is the topical-to-skin use of generic estradiol, estriol, conjugated estrogens, or any other synthetic estrogen within a non-absorbable generic vehicle of cream, lotion, ointment, shampoo, hair tonic, and wound-healing powder, having no absorbents or deconstructors in their formulas. This invention causes skin basal cells to produce increased quantities of collagen and to retain skin-water resulting in increased skin-thickness. This increased thickness results in improved resilience, resistance to injury, trauma and infection. The target of this invention is the skin and skin only. Specifically, there is no intended absorption of hormone into the circulation to result in side effects or risk. Any possible unintended and minimal quantity of hormone absorbed would be metabolized normally by the liver and excreted in the urine without risk or awareness to the user. Improving skin health and healing existing injuries/disease can save individuals from mid 30's and older, and society in general millions of dollars annually in skin-related health care costs.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/490868   Filing Date: 21/Jul/2006

Abstract:

Method and apparatus to treat unwanted dermatological conditions on a specific area of the body. The area of treatment is exposed to a specific pattern of multi-wavelength light which may have an added infusion of a particular wavelength from a unique non-collimated laser rod optical insertion. The light is generated by specific gas mixture multiple flashlamps that allow simultaneous, overlap, or consecutive firing with quasi-logarithmic spacing between pulses. Pre/Post low level optical heating increases lesion temperature to optimize pulsed treatment. The optimum fixed specific wavelength distribution pattern allows the treatment of various skin conditions by adjusting the intensity of light, and delay between pulses. The need for skin cooling and damage to skin treatment areas is eliminated by the quasi-logarithmic pulse spacing in conjunction with optimum length and characteristic shape of the individual pulses of light.

Title: Lightweight non-bulky personal cooling device

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/182902   Filing Date: 18/Jul/2005

Abstract:

A lightweight, non-bulky personal cooling device consists of a (1) first length of flexible tubing adapted to fit around the wearer's torso or another of the wearer's body parts, tubing contains at least two perforations and desirably a series thereof that are situated to facilitate air cooling of the torso or other body part and connects at both ends to (2) a T or Y-shaped connector having an additional inlet to which is connected (3) a second length of flexible tubing which is unperforated and is in turn connected (4) to a hand operatable air aspirator member whereby air is drawn in through the second flexible tubing and through the T or Y connector to the first flexible tubing from which air exits to the skin of the wearer and cools it. The preferred air aspirator is a spygmanometer which can be carried in a pocket, or in a pouch attached to the wearer.

In another embodiment an X-connector may be used with two inlets connected to the ends of the first length tubing and the other two ends each connected to an unperforated length of tubing which in turn conencts to a head operatable air aspirator, allowing more air to pass to the wearer's skin. Either of these embodiments can be for persons who find that the first length of tubing tends to stick to the skin so that some of all perforations become plugged and fail to deliver air to the skin by providing at least one perforation in this length oof tubing into which a very small Troy connector having an inside inlet diameter not more than about that of the flexible tubing itself, is seated. This connector acts to provide a space between the tubing and the skin, especially when the wearer's skin is perspiring, and also may aid in exhausting air if needed.

Title: Imaging system and method for physical feature analysis

Applicant/Assignee: NU SKIN INTERNATIONAL, INC

Application No.: 11/206671   Filing Date: 18/Aug/2005

Abstract:

A system for capturing and analyzing images of body features to identify treatments has a base unit with a processor and a display and an image management software component for presenting on the display a user interface to prompt a user to capture images in preselected locations on a body and to receive captured image data. The system has at least two light sources under control of the user interface that provide light following first and second light paths from the respective light sources to the plane of an imaging station, each light path having a significant portion of its light on the plane of the imaging station at a grazing angle of about ten to about thirty degrees. The first and second light paths when projected onto the plane of the imaging station intersect at an angle of at least sixty degrees.

An image sensor receives light from the light sources that is reflected from the surface of a body feature located at the imaging station and produces pixel image data representing the body feature. A rating software component receives the pixel image data from the image sensor and is configured to mimic the judgment of a dermatologist to provide a rating vector representing the condition of three or more attributes of the body feature represented by the pixel image data.

Applicant/Assignee: SUNTORY LIMITED SUNTORY HOLDINGS LIMITED

Application No.: 11/501074   Filing Date: 09/Aug/2006

Abstract:

The present invention provides a novel ascorbic acid derivative as a provitamin C with improved stability in the body and prolonged life in the body compared to conventionally known 2-O-(alpha-D-glucopyranosyl)ascorbic acid. The composition comprising the novel compound 2-O-(beta-D-glucopyranosyl)ascorbic acid has been extracted from plants such as from Ningxia Lycium barbarum L. and/or Lycium chinense Mill. The compositions comprising 2-O-(beta-D-glucopyranosyl)ascorbic acid may be enzymatically synthesized using beta-D-glucosyltransferase. Pure 2-O-(beta-D-glucopyranosyl)ascorbic acid may be produced from such compositions. Alternatively, 2-O-(beta-D-glucopyranosyl)ascorbic acid may be produced by chemical synthesis.

The 2-O-(beta-D-glucopyranosyl)ascorbic acid results in higher stability and a prolonged life of vitamin C when ingested in the body compared to the corresponding alpha-D-glucopyranosyl derivative, and is therefore highly suitable as a provitamin C to be used in cosmetics and foods.

Pores between the fibers in the inter-bonded fibrous layer are suited to help hold liquid. The shaped discontinuities are suited to help generate suds or lather should the substrate or personal-care appliance be used in combination with a cleaning composition, soap formulation, or other such material having a surface-active agent or other chemical or compound that helps generate lather. The reinforcing strands help strengthen, or improve the wet resilience of, the inter-bonded fibrous layer. Furthermore, by selecting the appropriate ingredients of the reinforcing strands, the strands may be stiffer than the inter-bonded fibrous layer, thereby helping to provide some exfoliating character to the substrate or personal-care appliance.

Title: Technique for incorporating a liquid additive into a nonwoven web

Applicant/Assignee: KIMBERLY-CLARK WORLDWIDE, INC

Application No.: 11/304988   Filing Date: 15/Dec/2005

Abstract:

A technique for incorporating a liquid additive into a nonwoven web is disclosed. Specifically, the liquid additive is loaded into filler particles to form a "dry liquid concentrate", i.e., pulverulent granular solid or powder loaded with the liquid additive. The incorporation of the liquid additive into dry liquid concentrates provides a variety of benefits. For example, prior to extrusion, the dry liquid concentrates generally retain the properties of filler particles from which they are formed as the liquid remains isolated. In this manner, a higher level of the liquid additive may be compounded with a melt-extrudable base composition without adversely affecting the extrusion process. Only upon extrusion of the composition will a significant portion of the liquid additive be released to provide the desired properties to the resulting nonwoven web.

Title: Dressing substrate

Applicant/Assignee: AALNEX, INC

Application No.: 11/441702   Filing Date: 26/May/2006

Abstract:

A wound shield to manage repetitive access stress may include a conformable substrate to circumscribe a wound. Any suitable dressing may be secured to the conformable substrate providing separation between the wound and the dressing. The wound substrate may provide a site for attachment of adhesive dressings to shield the patient's skin from the pain of repetitive access and or removal of the dressings. A conformable substrate may be composed of one or more layers of any suitable material and may include adhesive on one or more surfaces to secure the substrate to the wound site and or to secure the dressing to the conformable substrate. A wound substrate may include strong adhesive to secure the substrate to the patients skin. The conformable wound substrate will be formed of any suitable non-absorbent material to permit long term application adjacent a wound.

Thus many dressings may be applied and removed from a single wound substrate shielding the patient's skin from repetitive insult. A wound substrate according to the present disclosure may also be combined with a conformable frame to provide exudate management and or pressure distribution around a wound.

Title: Prosthetic sock providing graduated thickness and tibial crest load reduction for an amputee limb remnant

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/326733   Filing Date: 07/Jan/2006

Abstract:

A prosthetic sock configured to accommodate a transtibial amputee's residuum volume reductions which occur over time and are greater distally than proximally. It is also applicable to other amputee limbs and other levels of amputation of the leg and arm. The sock provides better compensation for the increased distal volume shrinkage and it reduces discomfort from localized loading on the stump by providing a knitted thickness that is greater distally and then tapers to a lesser proximal knitted thickness. A transtibial amputee's residuum is more sensitive to pressure over the tibial bone and this sock also provides a reduced local thickness over the tibial crest area which decreases the localized pressure in this region. Since the sock accommodates the loss of tissue volume in the distal end of the prosthetic socket, it thereby provides improved stump stability inside the prosthetic socket and improves amputee control and stability in walking.

Abstract:

The present invention provides a system and method for input of images containing faces for accessing, linking, and or visualizing multiple similar facial images and associated electronic data for innovative new on-line commercialization, medical and training uses. The system uses various image capturing devices and communication devices to capture images and enter them into a facial image recognition search engine. Embedded facial image recognition techniques within the image recognition search engine extract facial images and encode the extracted facial images in a computer readable format. The processed facial images are then entered for comparison into at least one database populated with facial images and associated information. Once the newly captured facial images are matched with similar "best-fit match" facial images in the facial image recognition search engine's database, the "best-fit" matching images and each image's associated information are returned to the user. Additionally, the newly captured facial image can be automatically linked to the "best-fit" matching facial images, along with comparisons calculated, and/or visualized. Key new use innovations of the system include but are not limited to: input of user selected facial images for use finding multiple similar celebrity look-a-likes, with automatic linking that return the look-a-like celebrities' similar images, associated electronic information, and convenient opportunities to purchase fashion, jewelry, products and services to better mimic your celebrity look-a-likes

health monitoring and diagnostic use by conveniently organizing and superimposing periodically captured patient images for health professionals to view progress of patients

Title: Laser System for Treatment of Skin Laxity

Applicant/Assignee: RELIANT TECHNOLOGIES, INC

Application No.: 11/674654   Filing Date: 13/Feb/2007

Abstract:

A method of reducing wrinkles in skin includes irradiating the skin with laser pulses to ablate an array of spaced apart voids in the skin. A region of coagulated tissue surrounds each of the voids and there viable tissue between the coagulated regions. Tissue in the coagulated regions is in tension due to shrinkage of collagen by the heat generated during the ablation. This tension rapidly closes the voids, tightening the skin and reducing the wrinkles. A healing process replaces the coagulated tissue with new tissue after a period of about one-month. The method is also applicable to lightening abnormally pigmented skin, as the new tissue replacing the coagulated tissue is not abnromally pigmented.

Title: Stimulating galvanic or slow AC current for therapeutic physiological effects

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/651931   Filing Date: 10/Jan/2007

Abstract:

Basically, the present invention is directed to a new and improved system for the therapeutic use of currents which includes conducting direct electrical current through the skin of a body being treated, and periodically reversing the electrical current and conducting the current through the skin in the opposite direction, to effectively deliver very low frequency AC current, substantially in the critical range of approximately 0.0027 Hz to 20 Hz. It has been discovered that, within this substantially critical frequency window between approximately six minutes per full cycle and approximately ten cycles per second, a dramatic cancellation of skin damaging ions takes place. At frequencies higher than approximately 20 Hz, the effect is to diminish its DC-like blood stimulation. At frequencies lower than approximately 0.0027 Hz, the risk of skin injury increases substantially. It is well known that the positive electrode unfortunately produces skin damaging hydrochloric acid. Likewise, the negative electrode unfortunately also produces skin damaging sodium hydroxide. However, within the aforementioned frequency range of the present invention, either polarity stimulates blood circulation, but also cancels the undesired skin damaging ions with the reverse portion of the electrical cycle. The reason for neutralization of the harsh injury producing chemicals, i.e., hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide, is that both of these chemicals require a finite period of time on the skin to cause damage. Hence, these damaging chemicals are made to cancel each other before damage takes place, by critical frequency selection, in accordance with the invention, of the AC driving signal. Therefore, optimization of a long sought electrotherapeutic device with reduced side effects has been achieved. Another use of the safe AC currents cited above and/or a DC signal with charged membranes preventing injury is its application to wound healing. The conductive electrodes for these devices may take either of two forms, i.e., one may be non-metallic carbon-filled silicone or, preferably of powdered carbon particles. A second form may be a metallic electrode preferably of aluminum, copper, zinc and/or magnesium as examples of metallic electrodes but not necessarily limited to these metals. These metals are preferably in powdered form and contained within a porous membrane with a small opening to attach a conductive lead to a battery source. Still other applications of the innovative use in electrotherapy of charged membranes and/or powdered metal electrodes is its use for drug delivery and diagnostic purposes. For instance, a membrane enclosed stainless steel powdered negative electrode may be used in the pickup probe for glucose detection. Charged membranes would surround the probe as an intervenor between skin and the electrode.

Title: Uses of melatonin in skin

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/708832   Filing Date: 21/Feb/2007

Abstract:

Melatonin, which can be produced in the skin, exerts a protective effect against damage induced by ultraviolet radiation (UVR). The present study investigated the effect of UVB, the most damaging component of UVR, on melatonin metabolism in HaCaT keratinocytes and in a cell-free system. Four metabolites were identified by HPLC and LC-MS: 6-hydroxymelatonin, AFMK, 2-hydroxymelatonin (the main intermediate between melatonin and AFMK) and 4-hydroxymelatonin. Concentrations of these photoproducts were directly proportional to UVR-dose and to melatonin substrate content, and their accumulation was time dependent. The UVR-dependent increase of AFMK and 2-hydroxymelatonin was also detected in keratinocytes, where it was accompanied by simultaneous consumption of intracellular melatonin. Of note, melatonin and its two major metabolites, 2-hydroxymelatonin and AFMK, were also detected in untreated keratinocytes, neither irradiated nor preincubated with melatonin. Thus, intracellular melatonin metabolism is enhanced under exposure to UVR. The additional biological activity of these individual melatonin metabolites increases the spectrum of potential actions of the recently identified cutaneous melatoninergic system.

Title: DNA encoding the human serine protease EOS

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/041385   Filing Date: 08/Jan/2002

Abstract:

Here we describe the molecular identification of a cDNA encoding a novel serine protease we have termed protease EOS. 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 EOS mRNA is expressed in platelets and leukocytes and more specifically eosinophils. Although this protease is abundantly expressed in ovary, retina and stomach, where it may perform important functions, its expression in platelets and certain cells of the immune system suggests that it may play roles in thrombosis and in the immune process. Enzymatically active protease EOS is amenable to further biochemical analyses for the identification of physiological substrates and specific modulators

Application No.: 11/394520   Filing Date: 31/Mar/2006

Abstract:

A neural prosthesis comprised of a network of component devices that sense, analyze, and communicate data to deliver a therapeutic effect to a patient. The network of component devices establish systems and methods for sensing physiological parameters in, on or around a human body and achieving a therapeutic effect based thereon. A network of various levels of component devices sense, process and communicate data between corresponding component devices, and self-organize into a hierarchy of peer groups of component devices to perform the task or function of the therapeutic effect upon completion of the tasks or functions of the various underlying levels of component devices. An overall Peer Group encompasses the various underlying levels of peer groups having the component devices therein. The sensing, computational, data distribution, communication or therapeutic effect tasks at the various levels are accomplished by the coordination of communication and functions between the plurality of relatively simple component devices of the network. Symmetric and asymmetric cryptography and other communication protocols are used to co-ordinate the tasks and functions of the component devices of the network. Therapeutic tasks such as drug delivery, executable actions, and stimuli delivery or suppression are thus efficiently distributed to a patient via the network. Component peer devices of the network can be implants, wearable devices with respect to a patient, or may be devices that are in the environment within which the patient is located.

Abstract:

Unique pigments that exhibit excellent light diffusion when applied to a person's skin within an appropriate medium as well as acceptable feel during such application are provided. To be most efficacious for this application, such pigments should meet specific criteria being a proper particle size, having irregular structure (i.e. not smooth), and a non-spherical shape. In such a manner, the subject pigments effectuate the desired ability to diffuse light when applied to skin (in a film of acceptable cosmetic composition) such that optical blurring takes place thereby preventing the appearance of wrinkles. The shape, particle size and irregularity of the pigments are necessary to permit maximum light diffusion effects. The particle size and particle size range also necessarily provides a feel that is sufficiently soft for skin applications. Specific types of pigments, as well as cosmetic formulations including such novel materials are also encompassed within this invention.

Title: Hydrophobically coated/treated metal silicate abosrbent particles and personal care compositions thereof

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.

Application No.: 11/697667   Filing Date: 06/Apr/2007

Abstract:

The present invention generally provides methods and devices that allow more efficient delivery of a stimulus, such as optical radiation, to the skin. In many embodiments, negative and/or positive pressure is applied to one or more skin regions in order to maintain a skin target under tension so as to redistribute blood volume between the skin target and other skin segments. In many cases, such tension can cause a depletion of the volumetric blood content in the skin target (that is, in the blood vessels beneath a surface of the skin target), thereby facilitating delivery of radiation to the skin target.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/978611   Filing Date: 01/Nov/2004

Abstract:

Unique pigments that exhibit excellent light diffusion when applied to a person's skin within an appropriate medium as well as acceptable feel during such application are provided. To be most efficacious for this application, such pigments should meet specific criteria being a proper particle size, having irregular structure (i.e. not smooth), and a non-spherical shape. In such a manner, the subject pigments effectuate the desired ability to diffuse light when applied to skin (in a film of acceptable cosmetic composition) such that optical blurring takes place thereby preventing the appearance of wrinkles. The shape, particle size and irregularity of the pigments are necessary to permit maximum light diffusion effects. The particle size and particle size range also necessarily provides a feel that is sufficiently soft for skin applications. Specific types of pigments, as well as cosmetic formulations including such novel materials are also encompassed within this invention.
