  • Patent number: 8227516
    Abstract: The present invention relates to compounds as inhibitors of enzymes having histone deacetylase activity, to the processes for the preparation of those compounds, and to their use for the treatment of diseases which are associated with hypoacetylation of histones and/or other molecules, or in which induction of hyperacetylation has a beneficial effect for example by inhibition of proliferation and/or induction of differentiation and/or induction of apoptosis in transformed cells, such as cancer. Furthermore, the compounds are useful for the treatment of other proliferative diseases, for therapy or prophylaxis of conditions associated with abnormal gene expression.

  • Patent number: 8210421
    Abstract: A process for the manufacture of plated strips comprising at least two layers of different metals or alloys. The process allows subsequent separation of different cropped layers resulting from shearing the plated strips. The process comprises preparing plates corresponding to each of the plating layers, superimposing and assembly of these plates to form a composite plate, hot and possibly cold rolling of this composite plate to obtain a plated strip, and shearing of cropping areas during or after rolling. In one embodiment, prior to superimposing the different plates, an anti-sticking agent is applied to the cropping areas of at least one of the surfaces of the plates which will be in contact with each other.

  • Patent number: 8197835
    Abstract: The present invention relates to biomedical foam articles for the wound sector which are formed by spraying a polymeric dispersion onto a wound. The polymeric dispersion being sprayed onto a wound surface forms a three-dimensional body which conforms to the spatial shape of the wound and which, as well as covering the wound surface, ensures a complete and accurately fitted packing of the wound in the depth dimension as well as the other dimensions. The biomedical foam articles of the present invention are particularly useful for treating chronic wounds.
