Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 13/245146   Filing Date: 26/Sep/2011

Abstract:

A method of making an active gas by generating a glow discharge, non-thermal plasma, in a gas mixture of a carrier gas and a more readily ionisable gas. The gas mixture is exposed to water vapour at or downstream from the generator to form the active gas. The gas mixture includes helium as the carrier gas and up to 40% by volume of at least one noble gas such as argon, krypton, or xenon as the more readily ionisable gas. The gas mixture is ejected at a temperature between 5 DEG C. to 42 DEG C. The active gas may be used for oral treatment such as cosmetic whitening of teeth, medical or non-clinical cleaning of teeth or for cleaning laundry or dishwashing items.

Applicant/Assignee: PHARMASOL GMBH

Application No.: 13/127073   Filing Date: 26/Oct/2009

Abstract:

The invention is related to compositions which can be used as dermal formulations for supporting the skin to restore normal conditions in case of e.g. irritated skin, or to support medical therapy of skin with atopic dermatitis symptoms, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis or related diseases (e.g. accompanied by distorted barrier function of the skin and microbial load). The compositions of the invention can be used for dermo-cosmetic products but also for pharmaceutical/-medical products, depending on the composition and the additional actives incorporated (cosmetic actives or drugs). The invention is based on the synergistic effect of metallic particles, in particular silver particles (such as microsilver, nanosilver) and lipid particles (lipid nanoparticles or lipid microparticles). As alternatives to silver particles, other metallic particles (e.g. zinc, copper) or nanocrystalline actives can be incorporated (e.g. replacing the anti-oxidative silver by anti-oxidative nanocrystals of plant molecules such as hesperitin). This leads to combinations of lipid particles with nanocrystals for dermal use.

Abstract:

The present invention provides a method for reducing the risk of bacterial infection or sepsis in a susceptible patient by treating the susceptible patient with a pharmaceutical composition containing bacteriophage of one or more strains which produce lytic infections in pathogenic bacteria. Preferably, treatment of the patient reduces the level of colonization with pathogenic bacteria susceptible to the bacteriophage by at least one log. In a typical embodiment, the susceptible patient is an immunocompromised patient selected from the group consisting of leukemia patients, lymphoma patients, carcinoma patients, sarcoma patients, allogeneic transplant patients, congenital or acquired immunodeficiency patients, cystic fibrosis patients, and AIDS patients. In a preferred mode, the patients treated by this method are colonized with the pathogenic bacteria subject to infection by said bacteriophage.

Application No.: 13/496898   Filing Date: 30/Aug/2010

Abstract:

This invention relates to a bipolar antimicrobial particle for use in laundry detergent compositions, fabric conditioners, personal care and cosmetic compositions and a process for making the same. In view of the foregoing, it is an object of the present invention to provide a stabile antimicrobial agent immobilised on a carrier particle. It is a further objective to provide an antimicrobial particle with improved retention to the fabric so that larger amounts of antimicrobial will be available even after rinsing. Surprisingly it has been found that antimicrobial molecules tagged by surface reaction onto naturally occurring asymmetric clay surfaces, act as an antimicrobial particle with improved retention properties with improved stability.
