12907 results about "Vitamin C" patented technology

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid and l-ascorbic acid, is a vitamin found in various foods and sold as a dietary supplement. It is used to prevent and treat scurvy. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient involved in the repair of tissue and the enzymatic production of certain neurotransmitters. It is required for the functioning of several enzymes and is important for immune system function. It also functions as an antioxidant.

Pharmaceutical composition and method for the transdermal delivery of calcium

The present invention relates to a method and transdermal pharmaceutical composition for preventing or reducing the likelihood of calcium deficiency or imbalances caused by calcium deficiency. The transdermal pharmaceutical composition includes a therapeutically effective amount of a pharmaceutically acceptable salt of calcium and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier constituting a pluronic lecithin organogel. In addition to calcium, the transdermal pharmaceutical composition may also contain a therapeutically effective amount of: (1) a pharmaceutically acceptably salt of other minerals such as magnesium, zinc, selenium, manganese, or chromium; (2) a vitamin such as vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin C, vitamin E or B-complex vitamins, choline, lecithin, inositol, PABA, biotin, or bioflavomoids; (3) a carotenoid such as lycopene or lutein; (4) a hormone such as dehydroepiandrosterone, progesterone, pregnenolone, or melatonin; (5) an amino acid such as arginine, glutamine, lysine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, GABA, tryptophan, carnitine, or acetyl-l-carnitine; (6) a fatty acid such as a fish oil or flax seed oil; (7) a vita-nutrient such as coenzyme Q10; (8) a cartilage building nutrient such as glucosamine, chondroitin, or MSM, (9) a herb such as ginkgo biloba, echinacea, 5-HTP, St. John's wort, or saw palmetto; or (9) any combination thereof. The transdermal pharmaceutical composition may be topically administered to a human to prevent or reduce the likelihood of calcium deficiency or imbalances caused by calcium deficiency such as hypertension, high cholesterol, colon and rectal cancer, osteomalacia, rickets, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, preeclampsia, tooth decay, and premenstrual syndrome.

Treatment and prevention of abnormal scar formation in keloids and other cutaneous or internal wounds or lesions

The present invention relates to findings that reducing the activity of Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) suppresses an excessive deposition of collagen which is known as a cause for the formation of abnormal scars. These abnormal scars include but are not limited to keloids, adhesions, hypertrophic scars, skin disfiguring conditions, fibrosis, fibrocystic conditions, contractures, and scleroderma, all of which are associated with or caused by an excessive deposit of collagen in a wound healing process. Accordingly, aspects of the present invention are directed to the reduction of PAI-1 activity to decrease an excessive accumulation of collagen, prevent the formation of an abnormal scar, and/or treat abnormal scars that result from an excessive accumulation of collagen. The PAI-1 activity can be reduced by PAI-1 inhibitors which include but are not limited to PAI-1 neutralizing antibodies, diketopiperazine based compounds, tetramic acid based compounds, hydroxyquinolinone based compounds, Enalapril, Eprosartan, Troglitazone, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Mifepristone (RU486), and Spironolactone to name a few. Another aspect of the present invention is directed to methods of measuring PAI-1 activity in a wound healing process and determining the propensity of the formation of an abnormal scar.
