  • Patent number: 8034382
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method to form sustained release drug-containing microparticles with a biodegradable polymer. The method involves forming a polymer-drug-organic solvent phase, and dispersing the polymer-drug-organic solvent phase in an aqueous suspension of an inorganic gel, which may be hydroxyapatite. The hydroxyapatite appears to coat the polymer-drug-solvent droplets to prevent them coalescing. The solvent then evaporates with stirring of the dispersion, at which time the droplets solidify to drug-containing microparticles. The inorganic gel allows suitably small microparticles to form without use of an organic emulsifier.

  • Patent number: 8035998
    Abstract: A switching power supply includes an active device for pulling out a part of a control signal from a control terminal of the switching device in an RCC, and a control signal generation circuit that applies adjustment voltage as ON/OFF time control voltage to a control terminal of the active device. The active device pulls out the control signal so as to decrease or increase an OFF time of the switching device while fixing the ON time of the switching device when the adjustment voltage is decreased or increased in the active region of the active device, respectively. An element of a timing circuit in the RCC pulls out the control signal so as to increase or decrease an ON time of the switching device while fixing the OFF time of the switching device when the adjustment voltage is decreased or increased in the cut-off region of the active device, respectively.
