  • Patent number: 10137081
    Abstract: A drug delivery device comprising a non-erodible, non-porous housing member defining a reservoir is provided. The reservoir is loaded with a dry formulation of a selected salt of a neuroleptic agent. The housing member has one or more porous partitions, where the pores of the partitions are sufficiently small to retain the insoluble powder particles within the reservoir yet large enough to allow diffusion of the active agent once the device is hydrated. A therapeutic dose of the drug is released from the device at a constant rate over a period of approximately 2-6 months.

  • Patent number: 10092650
    Abstract: A guided bone regeneration material is disclosed. The guided bone regeneration material includes biodegradable fibers produced by an electrospinning method. The biodegradable fibers produced by the method include a silicon-releasing calcium carbonate and a biodegradable polymer. The silicon-releasing calcium carbonate is a composite of siloxane and calcium carbonate of vaterite phase. The biodegradable fibers may be coated with apatite. When the guided bone regeneration material is immersed in a neutral aqueous solution, silicon species ions are eluted from the calcium carbonate. The guided bone regeneration material excels in bone reconstruction ability.
