  • Publication number: 20200022363
    Abstract: Process for forming controlled release antimicrobial salts that include a four-part mixture of (i) an antimicrobial cation, (ii) the anion of an organic acid, (iii) an ammonium, sodium or potassium cation and (iv) an anion such as a halide, acetate or gluconate, dissolved in a solvent so that a concentrate with dissociated controlled release antimicrobial ions is formed. Upon addition of water, controlled-release antimicrobial salt having a solubility in water at 20° C. of greater than about 0.001 (w/w) %, but less than about 1 (w/w) % are formed. Alternatively, a controlled release antimicrobial salt is formed in situ at a site of application containing moisture by addition of a concentrate having dissociated controlled release antimicrobial ions.

  • Patent number: 7435380
    Abstract: A pseudo-plastic or thixotropic carrier having anti-malodorous components dissolved or suspended therein is sprayed on the internal surfaces of an ostomy bag or pouch. The viscoelastic properties of the carrier allow the composition to be conveniently dispensed from a spray bottle into the ostomy bag and retained on the inner walls thereof without being displaced therefrom by incoming waste during use of the ostomy bag. This allows the composition to continue to deodorize the ostomy bag headspace even after waste material begins to fill the bag.

  • Publication number: 20020176828
    Abstract: A solid oral product, e.g., chewing gum, lozenge, an edible foodstuff, and the like, which is useful for remineralizing subsurface dental lesions and/or mineralizing exposed dentinal tubules, contains (A) a discrete cationic agglomerate component composed of at least one water-soluble or partially water-soluble calcium salt and a first inert solid carrier, and (B) a discrete anionic agglomerate component composed of at least one water-soluble orthophosphate salt and a second inert solid carrier. The agglomerate nature of the cationic and anionic components keeps these components separate from one another during storage of the product but allows the cationic and anionic salts to be simultaneously released from the product upon mixing of the product with water and/or saliva to form a mixed aqueous solution such that the solution contains both calcium cations released from the calcium salt and orthophosphate anions released by the orthophosphate salt.

  • Patent number: 6485708
    Abstract: Improved one-part and two-part liquid products such as, e.g., mouthwashes, mouthrinses, toothpastes, gels and the like, for remineralizing subsurface lesions and/or mineralizing exposed dentin tubules in teeth contain a cationic component, an anionic component and a separating means for separating the cationic and anionic components. The anionic component contains water-soluble phosphate and fluoride salts, while the cationic component contains at least one partially water-soluble calcium salt and preferably at least one water-soluble salt of a divalent metal other than calcium. The tooth is treated with a mixed aqueous composition formed by mixing the cationic and anionic components with water and/or saliva. The mixed aqueous composition has a pH of from about 4.0 to about 10.0 and, in addition to dissolved calcium cations and dissolved phosphate and fluoride anions, contains a quantity of undissolved calcium salt.

  • Patent number: 6451290
    Abstract: Improved solid products for remineralizing subsurface lesions and/or mineralizing exposed tubules in dentin contain an anionic component, a cationic component and a separating component for separating the anionic and cationic components in the product. The anionic component contains at least one water-soluble phosphate salt and the cationic component contains at least one partially water-soluble calcium salt. To remineralize subsurface lesions and/or mineralize exposed dentin tubules in a tooth, the anionic and cationic components are mixed with water and/or saliva to form a mixed aqueous composition having a pH of from greater than about 4.0 to about 10.0, which is then applied to the tooth.
