  • Patent number: 11912785
    Abstract: Compositions of foods, vitamin and mineral supplements, topical or oral drugs, and cosmetic products containing a small peptide or peptides for slowing degradation, for example by transition metals. The peptides are di, tri, terra-, and/or penta-peptides containing two or more aspartic acid residues. The degradation of several of the vitamin and other constituents vitamin-mineral supplements can be considerably slowed by composition incorporating such peptides, particularly if soluble (and thus bioavailable) forms of copper and/or iron are also present. The peptides can be hydrolyzed by the normal digestive process thus releasing bound metals. Multiple aspartate peptide(s) compositions with foods, topical or oral drugs, cosmetic, and hair care products can replace synthetic chelating preservative agents. Methods are also described to effectively slow degradation and preserve the above products using multiple aspartate peptides.

  • Patent number: 11890370
    Abstract: An ultrasound-induced drug delivery system is described, using a drug carrier containing a plurality of nanobubbles and a high concentration of a drug in one microcapsule, and a method for preparing the drug delivery system, by generating the nanobubbles in an oil into which the drug is dissolved using a nanobubble generator, and then microencapsulating them. The drug delivery system has an effect of maximizing a drug delivery efficiency as the nanobubbles collapse or aggregate when the ultrasound is applied to the drug delivery system. Since the drug delivery system contains a plurality of nanobubbles within the microcapsules, it can also be used as a contrast agent, or can be used to simultaneously perform in vivo diagnosis and treatment.
