  • Patent number: 6544531
    Abstract: There are provided compositions which include a retinoid and preferably retinol; a dermatologically active acid; and a volatile base, such as ammonium hydroxide. Another embodiment of the invention includes compositions comprising a retinoid and preferably retinol; a dermatologically active acid; a volatile base; and a second neutralizing agent. There are also provided compositions which include a retinoid, a neutralized ammonium salt of a dermatologically active acid, and optionally a neutralized salt, other than ammonium salt, of an acid. Further provided are methods for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, skin roughness, and pore size and for increasing the clarity of a skin surface, cellular turnover, skin radiance, skin smoothness, skin permeation or collagen synthesis in a mammal in need thereof. Compositions as described above are administered topically to the skin of the animal.

  • Patent number: 4762888
    Abstract: What is disclosed are novel hot melt adhesives having pressure sensitive properties that are comprised of a combination of two acrylic-based copolymers containing the novel monomer 1(2)-methyl-3-oxa-4-oxo-5-aza-nonyl methacrylate, one of the copolymers being a low glass transition temperature (Tg) copolymer and the other a high Tg copolymer and which hot melt adhesives, by means of reversible hydrogen bond formation and dissociation, possess the reversible properties of providing a strong cohesive strength at ambient temperature but also having a melt viscosity at elevated coating temperatures such that it can be used in hot melt coating equipment; a process for making said hot melt adhesives; and a process for making adhesive tapes and bandages using said adhesives.

  • Patent number: 4752466
    Abstract: A process is disclosed for delivery thrombin in dry powdered form from an aerosol container by first lyophilizing an aqueous solution of thrombin and a thrombin-compatible synthetic polymer e.g. polyvinyl pyrrolidone, placing the lyophilized cake in a pressure bottle by crimping on a valve stem and top, filling liquified chlorofluoroalkane-containing aerosol propellant into the bottle, and actuating the valve to dispense in dry-finely divided powdered form a mixture of thrombin and polyvinyl pyrrolidone, which powdered thrombin is for use in controlling bleeding during surgery.

  • Patent number: 4733794
    Abstract: A container comprising a tubular body members of rectangular cross-section and a hinged lid member having a skirt formed by shallow depending walls adapted to telescope closely over the walls of the body member when the lid is in the closed position, is provided with latching means and a projection on the outside of each side wall of the body member adjacent the open end thereof having an interference fit with the inside surface of the side wall of the lid member, whereby compressive forces are exerted by the lid member on the side walls of the body member as the lid is closed, thereby causing the front wall of the body member to flex slightly to assure the positive engagement of the latching means.

  • Patent number: 4706662
    Abstract: A dressing is disclosed which is made of a very thin film coated with an adhesive. In order to allow application of the dressing, the dressing has, on the surface opposite the adhesive, a fabric backing which is composed of a woven or non-woven fabric or a paper backing material. The dressing can be applied to the wound and the fibrous backing then removed, or the fibrous backing may be retained in place.

  • Patent number: 4706830
    Abstract: A vacuum drainage bottle includes a chamber for receiving fluids from a patient and a pressure indicator (9,21) for measuring the pressure in the chamber. Prior to use, the pressure indicator is isolated from the chamber by means of a breakable seal. The seal may be in the form of a recessed membrane (43), which may be ruptured by depressing the pressure indicator, causing a ball (45) to bear against the membrane (43).

  • Patent number: 4695500
    Abstract: A loosely constructed knit or woven fabric is dimensionally stabilized by causing staple length textile fibers to be entangled about the intersections of the yarns comprising the fabric. The stabilized fabric is formed by covering one or both sides of the loosely constructed base fabric with a light web of the staple length fibers, and subjecting the composite material to hydraulic entanglement while supported on a porous forming belt configured to direct and concentrate the staple length fibers at the intersections of the yarns comprising the base fabric.
