  • Patent number: 11241453
    Abstract: The present invention is predicated on the realisation that problems with the poor water solubility of arsenic trioxide and the extreme difficulty in dissolving arsenic trioxide in anything other than a very basic solution, could be overcome by forming a much more soluble diarsenic tetraoxide, including the compound NaHAs2O4, prior to its delivery to a patient. Pharmaceutical compositions with such compounds and their use in the treatment of cancers is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11224564
    Abstract: Disclosed are a pharmaceutical composition and a beauty-purposed pharmaceutical composition for prevention or treatment of neuromuscular disease, the composition including a combination of Erigeron annuus flower-based essential oil and Botox. Erigeron annuus flower-based essential oil inhibits t-SNARE protein and v-SNARE protein expression in neurons to inhibit the formation of SNARE protein complexes. Erigeron annuus flower-based essential oil inhibits the regeneration of t-SNARE protein and v-SNARE protein degraded by Botox to inhibit neurotransmitter release. Accordingly, an efficacy duration of Botox may be extended. Thus, Erigeron annuus flower-based essential oil may be usefully used in combination with Botox as Botox adjuvant for the prevention and treatment of neuromuscular disease or for beauty.

  • Patent number: 11213493
    Abstract: A topical preparation containing vitamin K1 and a preparation method thereof are provided. The topical preparation includes the following components in weight percentage: 0.01-5% of vitamin K1, 0.1-25% of a transdermal enhancer and 70-99% of a matrix for the topical preparation. The transdermal enhancer is composed of urea, menthol and Eucalyptus oil in a mass ratio of (5-6):(2-3):(1-3). The topical preparation containing vitamin K1 can be used to treat moderate and severe skin toxicity caused by anti-tumor drugs related to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), can effectively treat diseases such as acne-like rash, pruritus, red swelling, dry skin and mucositis caused by EGFR-related anti-tumor drugs, and can ensure the continued treatment with anti-EGFR targeting drugs. It can increase the possibility of vitamin K1 reaching focus sites in the dermal layer through the stratum corneum, and can rapidly alleviate moderate and severe skin diseases caused by EGFR-related anti-tumor drugs.

  • Patent number: 11065191
    Abstract: Process for thickening a composition, through the use of a direct emulsion in water, which is alkali-swellable, of a polymer of the ASE or HASE type, which is both rich in acrylic acid and which has a certain quantity of AMPS. The use of such emulsions simultaneously allows there to be no obligation to use surfactants and organic solvents other than water, and allows the thickening phenomenon to be activated for pHs of less than 7: this latter characteristic is particularly advantageous for formulations intended to be used in contact with skin.
