Methods for improving solubility of these agents in a neutral or acidic solution, improving the bioavailability of these agents and decreasing the gastroirritation of naproxen, by forming inclusion complexes comprising the agents and substituted or unsubstituted cyclodextrins are disclosed herein. Methods for treating mammals by orally or parenterally administering the foregoing pharmaceutical compositions are also provided.


TREATMENT OF SKIN DISEASES AND TUMORS

(WO1990010441) 20.09.1990 A61K 31/16 THORNFELDT, Carl, Richard
Skin conditions characterized by hyperactive mitochondria including inflammatory, hyperproliferative, hyperplastic, and dysplastic skin cells are treated with topical formulations of 5 to 19 carbon atom length aliphatic monocarboxylic acids or their esters or amides, as well as 5 to 19 carbon atom length monoaliphatic amines or their pharmaceutically acceptable salts.


A PROCESS FOR PRODUCING GLYCOSIDE ESTERS AND COMPOSITIONS COMPRISING GLYCOSIDE ESTERS

(WO1990009451) 23.08.1990 A61K 8/60 NOVO-NORDISK A/S KIRK, Ole BJRKLING, Fredrik GODTFREDSEN, Sven, Erik
Fatty acid esters of methyl glycosides are prepared by reacting a fatty acid or ester with a methyl glycoside in the presence of an enzyme catalyst, in particular a lipase. The resulting fatty acid esters are preferably monoesters. The methyl glycoside fatty acid esters may be used as surface-active agents in cleaning compositions or personal care products.


COMPOSITIONS AND METHODS FOR DRUG DELIVERY AND CHROMATOGRAPHY

(WO1990002141) 08.03.1990 A61K 47/48 AUSTRALIAN COMMERCIAL RESEARCH &DEVELOPMENT LIMITED LINCOLN, Stephen, Frederick COATES, John, Hewlett EASTON, Christopher, John VAN EYK, Stephen, John MAY, Bruce, Lindly SINGH, Paramjit WILLIAMS, Michael, Lloyd STILE, Martyn, Allen
Cyclodextrin derivatives and inclusion complexes having increased solubility and stability are provided. Cyclodextrin derivatives include amino and other modified cyclodextrins, and linked cyclodextrins. Inclusion complexes comprising the foregoing cyclodextrins, and processes for making the cyclodextrin derivatives are disclosed. Also disclosed are cyclodextrin derivatives comprising otherwise substituted or unsubstituted cyclodextrins covalently bonded to agents such as pharmaceuticals. The covalent bond, when broken, yields the agent in active form. Pharmaceutical compositions and methods of treating an animal host are also described, as well as chromatographic compositions and a method for separating racemic mixtures.
