  • Publication number: 20100092617
    Abstract: The invention concerns compositions containing polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA's). More particularly it concerns a composition containing PUFA's, (particularly long chain PUFAs derived from marine sources, particularly fish, and its use in fortifying consumables, such as food, drink, supplements and nutraceutical or pharmaceutical products. More particularly it is a substantially non aqueous additive mix, for introducing poly unsaturated fatty acids into ingestible products, which when hydrated forms an oil in water emulsion, comprising one or more poly unsaturated fatty acids or a source thereof and one or more emulsifying agents. The mix can be added to, particularly farinaceous products, to provide PUFA supplementation.

  • Patent number: 7341746
    Abstract: This application relates to a material which is suitable for the treatment of atopic disease, non-atopic eczema or psoriasis. The material can be extracted from a freeze-dried decoction of a mixture comprising the following Chinese herbs: Radix Ledebouriella, Fructus Tribuli, Herba Potentilla chinensis, Caulis Clematis armandii, Radix Rehmannia, Radix Glycyrrhiza, Radix Paeonia rubra, Cortex Dictamni radicis, Herba Lopatheri, Spica Schizonepetae. The material comprises one or more of those components present in the freeze-dried decoction which run with Rf values in the ranges 0.00 to 0.100, 0.167 to 0.300, 0.400 to 0.533, 0.700 to 0.833 or 0.900 to 0.967 if the freeze-dried decoction is diluted in aqueous solution and subjected to chromatography on a Whatman 2 cms×55 cms×3 mm cellulose strip for 10 hours using a solvent mixture of butanol, ethanol and water in the proportions 4:1:1.

  • Patent number: 7088914
    Abstract: A device for vaporizing a medicament (4). The device comprises a resistive element (9) on which the medicament is deposited. The device also comprises a source of electrical power which can be connected across the resistive element to vaporize the medicament. The element is configured to provide a central cool region (11) on which the medicament is deposited and a relatively hotter region (12) surrounding the cool region. Through holes (13) are also provided. The resistive element may be a mesh, foil or a tile on which a resistive pattern is deposited.

  • Patent number: 6849274
    Abstract: Th present invention relates to nutritional and pharmaceutical compositions. More particularly it is concerned with improving compositions which due to the presence of an efflorescent component may be unstable and prone to decomposition and/or spoilage. The problem is overcome by incorporating one or mote anhydrous compounds into the composition in an amount capable of sequestering any water which may be released from one or more water containing components. The preferred anhydrous compounds are anhydrous or calcined MgSO4 and CaO.

  • Patent number: 6350478
    Abstract: Extracts of herbs of the Artemisia family, some of which have been known in traditional medicine to have anti-diabetic effects, are fractionated chromatographically to remove unacceptable mutagenetic properties while retaining effectiveness against Diabetes mellitus. Certain fractions are found to be insulinomemetic while others have glucagon antagonistic properties. Mixtures of such fractions have optimum clinical effect.
