  • Patent number: 5771809
    Abstract: A coating plate is provided for use in applying a coating material over selected areas of printed material produced in lithographic, flexographic, letterpress, or other types of printing presses. The coating plate is formed of a light-transmitting sheet-form carrier and a light-transmitting sheet-form applicator adhesively affixed to the carrier by a pressure-sensitive releasable adhesive. In preparing the coating plate for use in applying a coating to selected areas of printed material, a pattern sheet is provided with indicia indicating the selected areas of the printed material to be coated. The pattern sheet is placed under the coating plate. Utilizing the indicial of the pattern as a guide, the operator utilizes a knife or other suitable cutting instrument to cut through the applicator sheet around the areas indicated by the pattern sheet to be utilized as coating areas.

  • Patent number: 5746667
    Abstract: A golf tee comprising a vertical member adapted to be struck into the ground, a transverse member pivotally engaged with the end of the vertical member and adapted to be adjustably moved angularly with respect to the vertical member and to retain its angular position therewith after such movement, and a string engaged at one end with the transverse member and engaged at the other end with a suction cup for engaging and supporting a golf ball above the ground. The transverse member may be pivotally moved to suspend the golf ball at the desired distance above the ground. When the golf ball is then struck with the head of a golf club, it encounters less impedance to true straight flight than a golf ball struck from a conventional tee. Longer driving distances can be achieved than when driving from a conventional tee. Moreover, there is less danger that the golf club will dig up a large divot of top soil than when the golf ball is struck from a conventional tee.

  • Patent number: 5714169
    Abstract: A topical composition comprising LYCD together with known topically active useful medicinal agents such as anti-wrinkling, antibiotic, anticancer, antifungal, antiinflammatory such as anti-acne, antiviral, wound healing, and hair-growing agents. The LYCD works together with the other active agents to achieve a synergistic result more effective than can be obtained from the topical agents individually, and more effective than could be predicted from the mere addition of the known efficacies of the individual ingredients.

  • Patent number: 5397770
    Abstract: A medicinal composition comprising an Epidermal Growth Factor-like protein derived from yeast, and a carrier which is pharmaceutically acceptable and suitable for the type of administration and treatment for which the composition is to be used. The yeast-derived protein Has a molecular weight of about 4770 daltons and a murine Epidermal Growth Factor (mEGF) activity equivalent to at least 100 nanograms of mEGF by Elisa Assay Titration. The medicinal composition may be applied topically for purposes such as the treatment of external body wounds, or in ophthalmic surgery such as in cataract or corneal surgery, by incorporating a carrier therein which is pharmaceutically acceptable for the particular topical use. The composition may be administered orally for treatment of such ailments as peptic ulcers by incorporating therein a carrier which is pharmaceutically acceptable for oral administration in oral dosage form.

  • Patent number: 5055216
    Abstract: Cleansing tissue formed of a plurality of fibrous layers laminated together, at least one of the layers being processed differently from the other layers to provide properties distinctive from the other layer or layers. For example, one layer may be treated with a perfume or fragrance material, while the other layer or other layers may be provided with a liquid cleansing agent. In a preferred embodiment the cleansing tissue is formed of three layers, the inner layer containing a perfume or fragrance material, while the two outer layers contain a liquid cleansing agent. Alternatively, one outer layer may be left free of any additives so that is may serve as a dry towel. The perfume or other fragrance material imports a pleasant scent to the skin of the person who uses the multilayer tissue to refresh himself, while the cleansing agent serves to clean the person's skin.
