Application No.: US20090000023A1  Published: 01/Jan/2009

Title: Fluid dispenser having infrared user sensor

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/823248   Filing Date: 27/Jun/2007

Abstract:

A dispensing system is disclosed which utilizes a controller in conjunction with a photodetector in order to provide automatic dispensing to a user when an object enters a target area. A controller is programmed to pulse a light source that is mounted proximate the photodetector. The controller constantly monitors the voltage at the receiving signal of the photodetector, and evaluates the difference in voltage from the light pulsed on and off. The controller sums the differences, and constantly updates the differences over a designated period to create an average difference value. The average difference value is summed with a target offset value and compared to a momentary voltage difference.

When the momentary difference exceeds the sum of the target offset value and average difference, the controller sends a signal to a dispense mechanism which dispenses a fluid or other product on the object.

Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR REALISTIC SIMULATION OF WRINKLE AGING AND DE-AGING

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/141457   Filing Date: 18/Jun/2008

Abstract:

Methods and systems are disclosed to realistically simulate facial wrinkle aging of a person using a neutral state (natural look) image and one or more expression images (e.g., smile, frown, pout, wink) that induce wrinkles. The neutral and expression images are processed to simulate wrinkle aging by registering the wrinkles that are visible in the expression image onto the neutral image, thereby generating a wrinkle-aged simulated image. Advantageously, a person's own wrinkle histological data is utilized, hence providing an accurate and realistic wrinkle aging simulation. Similarly, the neutral image is processed to eliminate all visible wrinkles thereby generating a wrinkle de-aged simulation image. Additionally, blending of a neutral image with an aged or de-aged simulation image is disclosed, where the degree of blending is based on statistical modeling of skin condition with age and/or expected outcome of a particular type of treatment. The methods and systems disclosed have wide applicability, including, for example, areas such as dermatology, cosmetics and computer animation, among others.

Abstract:

A nose to back neck and eye muscles exercise for improved facial enhancement, resulting in a more youthful appearance because of reduced or eliminated wrinkling of the face, is one representation of this invention. This exercise affects all of the facial muscle area beginning at the nose and going upward, ending at the back of the neck area. Notable improvement results in a tightened, smaller slenderized nose and reduced or eliminated wrinkling around facial eye area and forehead. Not only is a more youthful appearance achieved, but eyesight (vision) is greatly improved from strengthened supportive facial muscles surrounding eyes and independently strengthened muscles of the eyes as a result of this exercise. It is not possible to receive one natural benefit of the muscles exercise of this present invention of reduced wrinkling and a more youthful appearance without receiving its naturally intertwined second benefit of improved eyesight, and vice versa.

Title: System and Method of Control of the Terrestrial Climate and its Protection against Warming and Climatic Catastrophes Caused by Warming such as Hurricanes

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/131242   Filing Date: 02/Jun/2008

Abstract:

This system of the control and protection of the terrestrial climate relies mainly on civilian airlines burning (preferably price-subsidized) sun-shading (sun-blocking/sun-reflective) fuels in the high levels of the atmosphere in order to reduce the intensity of the solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface. The use of sun-blocking airline fuels for the protection of the Earth from solar radiation parallels the use of sun-blocking skin-creams for the protection of the individual. The invention parallels the cooling effect on the Earth's climate caused by major volcanic eruptions, collisions of the Earth with asteroids, or the cooling effect one could expect after a major nuclear war. This invention proposes the creation of a controlled mini "nuclear winter", in other words of a cooling caused by the increased refraction of the atmosphere or by the increased shading of the terrestrial surface by particulates in the high levels of the atmosphere.

Application No.: 12/282021   Filing Date: 11/Apr/2007

Abstract:

A catheter tubing (2) consists of a composite comprising a first material (54) which mainly consists of a hydrophilic plastic material which absorbs moisture and which therefore swells in contact with e.g. blood, and a second material which essentially does not absorb moist but which forms reinforcing longitudinal strands (55) in the catheter tubing, which counteract that the catheter tubing is extended or becomes thicker because of the swelling capacity of the first polymeric material, such that the volume increase of the hydrophilic, first plastic material substantially results in an increase of the circumference of the tubing and hence of its diameter and flow area. A catheter is made of a catheter tubing of that type and can be included in an assembly (1) comprising a hub (4) having a front portion (11) provided with a pair of wings (29) extending outwards from the hub. The wings can be folded against one another in order to serve as a gripping member (7) provided adjacent to the catheter when the catheter is being inserted into a fistula (40), whereupon they can be brought to contact and be releasably adhered to the skin of a patient.

Abstract:

Lasers capable of lasing 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.

Title: SUNLESS TANNING COMPOSITION WITH PHOTOSTABLIZED SUNSCREEN

Applicant/Assignee: PLAYTEX PRODUCTS, INC

Application No.: 12/202711   Filing Date: 02/Sep/2008

Abstract:

In one aspect, a cosmetic composition includes a sunless tanning agent and a sunscreen agent. A photostabilizer is added to stabilize the sunscreen agent from the destabilizing effect of the sunless tanning agent. In this manner, UV protection is provided to the user when the cosmetic composition is applied to skin. In another aspect, a water-based sunless tanning/sunscreen composition includes a sunless tanning agent, a sunscreen agent, and a photostabilizer. The sunless tanning agent is DHA, and the sunscreen is avobenzone. Because the avobenzone degrades when exposed to UV radiation when used with DHA, the photostabilizer is added to enable the avobenzone to retain most of its original ability to absorb the UV radiation. The photostabilizer is a low molecular weight copolymer of adipic acid and neopentyl glycol.

Title: Topically Applied Chitosan Composition for Pain Relief and Boosting Immune System

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/249663   Filing Date: 10/Oct/2008

Abstract:

A composition of matter that when applied topically relieves pain in the area where it is applied (i.e. knees, back, elbows, heels, etc.). The composition contains chitosan, canola oil, sea salt minerals (chloride ion, sulfate ion, calcium, potassium, zinc, sodium, magnesium and nickel), and water. To make the composition, the ingredients should be at room temperature. Dissolve 7-8 grams of medical grade or edible grade chitosan in 1 liter of canola oil. Dissolve 2 tsp of sea salt containing the following minerals (chloride ion, sulfate ion, calcium, potassium, zinc, sodium, magnesium and nickel) in 50ml of distilled water. Pour the sea salt solution into the chitosan-canola oil mixture. The chitosan-canola oil is hydrophilic and absorbs the sea salt water into the composition negating the water-oil interface. Shake well for 10 minutes or mechanically blend for 5 minutes. Apply generously to skin over affected area. The same ratios apply to larger batches. The chitosan-oil-water-mineral composition permits the ingredients to cross tissue barriers to effect skin, connective tissue, tendon, ligaments, cartilage and bone to relieve pain, stop inflammation and heal inflamed underlying tissue. The respective components of the chitosan-oil-water-mineral composition will not cross the pericutaneous tissue barriers alone.

Title: Composite garage doors and processes for making such doors

Applicant/Assignee: JELD-WEN, INC

Application No.: 11/983091   Filing Date: 07/Nov/2007

Abstract:

Metal doors may be more cost-efficient than wood to manufacture and maintain, but may not be as aesthetically pleasing to the consumer. For example, metal garage doors may only be available in limited color lines and often do not simulate a natural wood grain in a very realistic manner. Also, metal garage doors may be limited in design, in that it may be difficult to add three dimensional shaping, such as trim or paneling, to the outer surface of a metal door. For example, some manufacturers apply extrusive plastic panels to the face of a metal garage door to add a design to the face of the door. The plastic and metal components, however, may exhibit different physical properties in response to changes in temperature and humidity and thus, the door may exhibit warping or other types of deformation upon exposure to weather.

Title: Use of Iontophoresis and Ultrasound to Deliver Melanin or Other Chromophores for Laser Hair Removal

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/951720   Filing Date: 06/Dec/2007

Abstract:

The method disclosed includes combining iontophoresis and ultrasound to deliver the appropriate chromophores to blonde, grey, white, vellus, and other non-pigmented or laser resistant hair follicles to facilitate photothermolysis hair removal using a laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), a combination of laser and RF energy, or a combination of IPL and RF. This technique preferentially ultra-exposes the hair follicles to light energy which is absorbed preferentially by naturally and synthetic elements in and around the hair follicle. The result is focused photothermolysis damage resulting in death of the hair producing tissue. The combined use of iontophoresis and ultrasound with the appropriate chromophore and laser light allows for immediate and permanent removal of unwanted hair in selected locations on the body of mammals. This combination is so effective that the patient can be treated with single, or at least minimal, office visitations, thereby eliminating the need to continuously prepare and re-prepare the skin with melanin or other chromophores prior to multiple-in office-laser or IPL treatments for completing desired hair removal results. Additionally, this method discloses the use of iontophoresis together with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and also Radio Frequency (RF) energy combined with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to specifically provide necrotizing energy doses to target the regenerative zones of the hair and accomplish hair removal.

Title: MOISTURE CONTROL IN A TRANSDERMAL BLOOD ALCOHOL MONITOR

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/013931   Filing Date: 14/Jan/2008

Abstract:

Moisture may build up inside an alcohol monitor that is securely attached to a human subject due to the inlet air from the subject's skin surface which constantly emits water vapor in the form of insensible skin perspiration. As the warm moist air which has very high humidity flows along the air flow path through decreasing temperatures within the alcohol monitor, moisture will be removed from the air through condensation. The condensation problem is solved by lowering the humidity level in the air sample by mixing the very humid air sample from the body with less humid ambient air, which increases the dew point for condensation. Increasing the dew point in the air sample means that there must be a greater change in temperature along the air flow path of the air sample in order to cause the moisture in the air sample to condense and become water.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/052670   Filing Date: 20/Mar/2008

Abstract:

It has been discovered that granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor ("GM-CSF") promotes migration of activated (but not differentiating) keratinocytes to wound sites. It was also discovered that GM-CSF increases the quantity and improves the quality of collagen. This growth factor specifically increases migration of keratinocytes of the "wound" phenotype but does not have significant effects upon differentiated keratinocytes. Examples demonstrate reversal of skin impairment in multiple animal models of diabetic skin imparment when provided in an effective amount over an effective time period. The examples also demonstrate the efficacy of the formulations in cosmetic applications. A preferred formulation is a sustained release formulation that delivers sufficient growth factor to the skin and the underlying tissue thereof to increase the rate of keratinocyte migration, as well as collagen deposition and fibroblast proliferation, in the skin to promote rejuvenation of skin injuries resistant to repair due to underlying disease, such as diabetes, or aging.

Title: High unsaponifiables and methods of using the same and its derivatives and uses thereof

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/611775   Filing Date: 30/Jun/2003

Abstract:

Materials with high levels of unsaponifiable matter, such as extracts from plants, result in Hydrolysates with unique properties. It has been found that the application of a hydrolysis process to materials, particularly materials with a high level of unsaponifiables (e.g., at least 6% by total weight of the material) produces a product with properties significantly different from those products resulting from the conventional saponification of materials with less than 6% by weight of unsaponifiables. The resulting Hydrolysates from the practice of the present invention are substantive, resisting both physical and aqueous-based removal from skin and hair, exhibit a very unique surfactant property, and are not foaming agents with water.

Addition of extra alkali metal hydroxides to these Hydrolysates according to the present invention may thus be used to neutralized acidic gelling agents and thereby providing a gel with enhanced the performance for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Abstract:

An extract of the grape plant obtained from grape plant cane is a powerful anti-oxidant, and offers a unique combination of beneficial organic chemicals, including trans-resveratrol, trans-viniferin, and oligostiibines. The grape plant cane product is produced essentially exclusively from grape plant cane, which is often discarded by vintners. Methods of making this product include solvent extraction from the grape plant cane, followed by vacuum drying without overheating the product. The grape plant cane extract may be used as an anti-fungal, antibiotic, antiseptic, preservative, as a topical application to improve moisture retention of human skin, and to extend the shipping and shelf life of produce, among other uses. A method for using the grape plant cane extract as a food supplement involves daily human ingestion of desired amounts of a food-grade grape plant cane product.

An analysis phase can be included where the relationship between motion capture markers and detailed facial geometry is inferred. A synthesis phase can be included where detailed animated facial geometry is driven by a sparse set of motion capture markers. For analysis, an actor can be recorded wearing facial markers while performing a set of training expression clips. Real-time high-resolution facial deformations are captured, including dynamic wrinkle and pore detail, using interleaved structured light 3D scanning and photometric stereo. Next, displacements are calculated between a neutral mesh driven by the motion capture markers and the high-resolution captured expressions. These geometric displacements are stored in one or more polynomial displacement maps parameterized according to the local deformations of the motion capture dots. For synthesis, the polynomial displacement maps can be driven with new motion capture data.

The image may be of an anatomical area containing skin, such as the face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms or hands, among others, or may be of portions of such areas, such as the cheek, forehead, or nose, among others. The mask that is generated is based on the locations of anatomical features or landmarks in the image, such as the eyes, nose, eyebrows and lips, which can vary from subject to subject and image to image. As such, masks can be adapted to individual subjects and to different images of the same subjects, while delineating anatomically standardized ROIs, thereby facilitating standardized, reproducible skin analysis over multiple subjects and/or over multiple images of each subject. Moreover, the masks can be limited to skin regions that include uniformly illuminated portions of skin while excluding skin regions in shadow or hot-spot areas that would otherwise provide erroneous feature analysis results. Methods and systems are also disclosed for automatically registering a skin mask delineating a skin ROI in a first image captured in one imaging modality (e.g., standard white light, UV light, polarized light, multi-spectral absorption or fluorescence imaging, etc.) onto a second image of the ROI captured in the same or another imaging modality.

Title: NANO-STRUCTURED THIXOTROPIC INORGANIC PEELING GELS

Applicant/Assignee: MBS S.R.L

Application No.: 11/795853   Filing Date: 24/Jan/2006

Abstract:

A composition, a method, and a kit are provided for chemical skin peeling, based on nano-structured thixotropic inorganic gels, which have a higher potency and are less irritant of the conventional peeling formulations. The gels of the invention can easily be applied on the skin, where they form a stable, uniform layer, that doesn't strain. The kit comprises by a defatting gel, different types of peeling gels and a neutralizing gel. The defatting gel is characterized by a markedly enhanced defatting capacity in comparison to the conventional products, because the sebum solubilized by the solvent is strongly adsorbed on the huge surface of the nano-structured material of the gel. The peeling gels are based on conventional peeling compounds, such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, pyruvic acid, salicylic acid, Jessner solution, but the presence of nano-structured material strongly increases the peeling effect, allowing the use of lower concentrations of peeling compound, with only minimal skin irritation for the user. The neutralizing gel is characterized by a colour change that allows the operator to verify in real time the neutralization of the peeling agent on the treated skin surface. All the gels of the invention can be easily removed from the skin after the treatment. The thixotropic gels of the invention can be used in chemical skin peeling for the treatment of various cosmetic conditions and dermatological disorders, including dry skin, acne, dandruff, keratoses, age spots, wrinkles and disturbed keratinisation.

Abstract:

Procedure for the obtaining a concentrate of the total fixed lipids of the kernels of the family Sapotaceae, genus Calocarpum, Chrysophyllum and Lucuma. The kernels (seeds removed of the endocarp), are squeezed by means of mechanical techniques that use pressure and heat, without using extractive liquids, getting a concentrate of lipidic juices (virgin) in a dry way and with their characteristic aroma. This concentrate of total fixed lipids can be fractioned in its main constituents by means of a process that consist of the emulsification of the lipids, followed by centrifugation or sedimentation, giving place to the stratification of the main constituents and their consequent separations. The main constituent consist of oils, of phospholipids and of residues glucosidic triterpenes plus of sterols fractions. These fraction or as a whole concentrate are used to prepare cosmetics and pharmaceutical compositions of topical application, to act in the skin like anti-seborrheic, healing, promoter of delicate defoliation and as invigorated epithelia regeneration agents, as cutaneous anti-wrinkle agent and as adjuvant in the development of the hair.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/371327   Filing Date: 13/Feb/2009

Abstract:

The object of the invention is to provide a topical preparation for (acne) rosacea and other sensitive skin types that protects the face from harmful UV rays without the use of chemical sunscreen ingredients. It has long been found that chemical sunscreen ingredients (most popular are oxybenzone and avobenzone) can cause an increase of rosacea symptoms (flushing, erythema, papules) (Nedorost (2003) and Landers et al., 2003). Furthermore, typical waterproof sunscreen preparations also contain various forms of silicones that are used to increase the hydrophobicity of the sunscreen. These waterproof sunscreen preparations impair the release of heat from the skin. The combination of this "trapped heat" and a sensitivity to chemical sunscreen ingredients, is harmful to rosacea skin. Therefore, a sunscreen preparation that is water-soluble and uses alternative UV absorbing and UV scattering ingredients would be very useful in protecting rosacea skin from harmful UV rays.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/421792   Filing Date: 10/Apr/2009

Abstract:

A method and process for producing youthful appearing, small-pored, and smooth skin by pre-treating the skin topically with retinoic acid, applying carbon particles on the skin, removing the carbon particles by exploding them with laser light, and post-treating the skin topically with retinoic acid. When treating the face, removing the carbon particles requires only about 4 minutes. The laser light itself does not injure the skin. Treatment by explosion of the carbon particles stimulates the production of collagen in the high dermis leaving the epidermis intact, with no removal of stratum corneum. Repeated intermittent treatments of exploding carbon particles and topical application of retinoic acid to the skin produce the desired results in the skin indefinitely as long as the treatment and applications are continued.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/036007   Filing Date: 22/Feb/2008

Abstract:

A stable system for producing liquid products such as ethanol, butanol and other chemicals from syngas components contacts CO or a mixture of CO2 and H2 with a highly porous side of an asymmetric membrane under anaerobic conditions and transferring these components into contact with microorganisms contained within bio-pores of the membrane. The membrane side of the membrane utilizes a dense layer to control hydration of the bio-pores with a liquid phase. The gas feed directly contacts the microorganisms in the bio-pores and maximizes their utilization of the syngas. Metabolic products produced by the microorganisms leave the membrane through the side opposite the entering syngas. This system and method establishes a unitary direction across the membrane for the supply of the primary feed source to the microorganisms and the withdrawal of metabolically produced products. The feed and product flow improves productivity and performance of the microorganism and the membrane.

Title: Organic silicic acids complex for therapeutic and cosmetic applications

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/912220   Filing Date: 20/Apr/2006

Abstract:

This invention describes materials containing organic silica, used in cosmetic for external uses (gel, cream or lotion) or for internal uses (microbeads/beads, tablets or solutions). These materials are vegetable extracts such as bamboo or algae which constitute richest sources in organic silica (more soluble and assimilable). After extraction in a basic medium, the organic silica extract can form a stable complex at acidic pH in presence of stabilizers such as gelatin, collagen, polyethylene glycol and/or chitosan, etc. These complexes can be used for cosmetic applications in gel, lotion and cream or as a matrix in order to immobilize various bioactive molecules. For internal uses, the soluble form of monomeric or oligomeric silicic acid is necessary to preserve its assimilability. In this context, the addition of stabilizers (gelatin and/or collagen) or the functionalization of silicic acid is possible to improve its solubility and biodisponibility.

Application No.: 12/464124   Filing Date: 12/May/2009

Abstract:

The present invention generally relates to the transdermal delivery of substances and, in some embodiments, to the transdermal delivery of beneficial substances by a hostile biophysical environment. In one aspect, various methods for the transdermal delivery of beneficial substances are disclosed. By creating a hostile biophysical environment, beneficial substances may be delivered, according to certain embodiments, through the stratum corneum of the skin into the body. Beneficial substances include, but are not limited to, pharmaceutical agents, drugs, vitamins, co-factors, peptides, dietary supplements, and others. The beneficial effects disclosed include, for instance, relief of pain and inflammation, prevention and healing of ulcers of the skin, relief of headache, improved sexual function and enjoyment, growth of hair on the scalp, improving muscle size and/or function, removing body fat and/or cellulite, treating cancer, treating viral infections and others. A hostile biophysical environment may also be used in conjunction with systems and methods for increasing local blood flow, according to one set of embodiments. For example, by using a nitric oxide donor such as L-arginine, local blood flow may be increased, e.g., by transdermally delivering the nitric oxide precursor. The nitric oxide donor may be the sole cause of increased blood flow, or it may be supplemented with an adjunct such as theophylline.

Abstract:

The present invention relates to compositions and uses of novel high penetration compositions or high penetration prodrugs (HPP), in particular HPPs for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIAs), which are capable of crossing biological barriers with high penetration efficiency. The HPPs herein are capable of being converted to parent active drugs or drug metabolites after crossing the biological barrier and thus can render treatments for the conditions that the parent drugs or metabolites can. Additionally, due to the ability of penetrating biological barriers, the HPPs herein are capable of reaching areas that parent drugs may not be able to access or to render a sufficient concentration at the target areas and therefore render novel treatments. The HPPs herein can be administered to a subject through various administration routes. For example, the HPPs can be locally delivered to an action site of a condition with a high concentration due to their ability of penetrating biological barriers and thus obviate the need for a systematic administration. For another example, the HPPs herein can be systematically administer to a biological subject and enter the general circulation with a faster rate.

Title: Compositions and methods for personal care

Applicant/Assignee: LANDEC CORPORATION

Application No.: 12/455628   Filing Date: 04/Jun/2009

Abstract:

Systems and methods for delivering personal care materials. Crystalline polymeric systems, referred to as CYC carriers, are associated with the cosmetic materials, through chemical bonding or through physical association. The crystallinity of the CYC carriers results from the presence of crystallizable side chains, for example long chain n-alkyl moieties, which results in relatively low and sharp melting temperatures. One class of CYC carriers, referred to as CYSC polymers, have a majority of the crystallizable side chains pendant from the polymer backbone. Another class of CYC carriers, referred to as ECC polymers, have a majority of the crystallizable side chains attached to terminal units of the polymer backbone. The ECC polymers can for example be obtained by modification of PLGA polymers. The CYC carriers in another class are non-polymeric. Some CYC carriers, referred to as CYC assemblies, have enhanced crystallinity as a result of the physical association of crystallizable moieties which are present in different types of molecule, for example between a polymer containing crystallizable moieties and a monomer containing crystallizable moieties. Preferably the CYC carrier is bioerodable.

Abstract:

An aqueous or non-aqueous preparation comprising cationic agents to neutralize a negative charge thereby relieving tension in the skin and preventing moisture from escaping. It relieves static-tension in the skin thereby reducing the distance between the pores. The difference between the Present Invention and other water based skin conditioners is the amount of cationic agents used. The Present Invention utilizes much more of these ingredients than other commercial products. This produces the unexpected result of neutralizing the charge on the skin and relieving tension, softening and moisturizing the skin. In its most basic form, it contains no moisturizing or other skin conditioning agents. These products can be added to the Present Invention, or alternatively, the Present Invention may be used as an additive to most currently available commercial aqueous and non-aqueous based skin moisturizers for a synergistic skin softening effect.

Applicant/Assignee: FRITO-LAY NORTH AMERICA, INC

Application No.: 12/102683   Filing Date: 14/Apr/2008

Abstract:

A method for making an expandable half-product or pellet suitable for cooking by microwave oven (or other method such as frying) that results in a non-uniform, random design, while having a distinct pattern or style. The half product design is achieved by inducing stress cracks in the half product. The stress cracks are created by a controlled drying process whereby extruded half-products are first case hardened to create an outer skin that requires an internal build-up of pressure to penetrate. After creation of the outer skin, by drying in an oven or in ambient air, the half-product is heated to permit the vapor pressure of the moisture inside the half-product to break through the outer skin and escape. Such escape points induce stress cracks in random places in the half-product.

The general pattern of the stress cracks can be varied by manipulation of the time-temperature profile of the case hardening and stress cracking steps.

Title: Protein formulations comprising s1-5

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/631040   Filing Date: 01/Jul/2005

Abstract:

The present inventors discovered that knockout mice whose S1-5 gene function is lost develop age-related diseases or symptoms. Histological analysis in such knockout mice revealed that bone mineral content, bone mineral density, and bone strength were decreased, and the number of osteoclasts in bone tissues was increased. Analysis of osteoclast-forming ability using bone marrow cells derived from the knockout mice revealed that osteoclast-forming ability is enhanced and osteoclasts are larger in the knockout mice than in wildtype mice. When purified S1-5 protein was added to this in vitro system, osteoclast-forming ability was inhibited.

Abstract:

A system and methods are provided for targeted and individualized delivery of multiple skin benefit agents to the skin of a user. The image of a predetermined treatment area of the user's skin is first captured by an imaging device. The captured image data is then analyzed by a computing device to generate a unique skin profile for the user, which is indicative of the skin conditions at the predetermined treatment area. Based on such skin profile, a printing device prints out one or more cosmetic delivery sheets that can be applied to the predetermined treatment area. Each of the cosmetic delivery sheets contains a substrate with multiple isolated, discrete regions, while at least two of the regions are imprinted with different skin benefit agents for treating different skin conditions of the predetermined treatment area according to the unique skin profile of the user. Targeted delivery of one or multiple skin benefit agents to the skin of a user may be achieved by applying and conforming to the skin a flexible cosmetic delivery sheet having associated therewith, on a first surface, one or multiple cosmetic treatment compositions provided in isolated, discrete regions, while an opposite surface of the sheet is provided with imprinted, predetermined regions corresponding to respective isolated, discrete regions on the first surface of the sheet. The user manipulates the sheet at the imprinted predetermined regions in a manner indicated by the imprinted predetermined regions to release one or multiple skin treatment compositions from the isolated, discrete regions and deliver effective amounts of one or multiple skin benefit agents to the targeted areas of the skin underlying the isolated, discrete regions of the sheet.

Abstract:

This invention concerns the use of cyclopamine, a naturally occurring steroidal alkaloid known for over thirty years, for the treatment of psoriasis and achievement of rapid clearance of the psoriatic skin lesions together with the reversion of the histopathological signs of disease to normalcy with no detectable side effects. The cyclopamine-induced clearance of psoriatic lesions from the skin of patients is associated with the causation of cellular differentiation in lesional epidermis and with the rapid disappearance of CD4(+) lymphocytes and other inflammatory cells from lesional skin. Therapeutic compositions comprising of cyclopamine and a corticosteroid and/or the pre-treatment of lesions with a corticosteroid provide significantly further increased therapeutic effectiveness over the use of cyclopamine alone or a corticosteroid alone.
