Title: METHOD OF TREATING SKIN CONDITIONS WITH OVINE AMNIOTIC FLUID USING IONTOPHORESIS

Publication No: WO2009/009818
Pub. Date - Int. Class - Applicant: - 22.01.2009 - A61K 35/50 - TANUJAYA, Tanti, Diana
The invention is directed to a method of treating skin conditions comprising penetrating ovine amniotic fluid using iontophoresis. The penetration of the ovine amniotic fluid results in the production of Fibroblast Growth Factor (F.G.F), Natural Moisture Growing Factor (N.M.G.F) and Natural Immune Body Growing Factor (N.I.B.G.F), which in turn leads to the repair, replacement and rebuilding of skin tissues. The skin conditions which may be treated by the described method include skin cancer, such as melanoma, reduction of scaring and blemishes, and prevention of early aging.
