  • Patent number: 8889630
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for re-growing hair in patients with androgenic alopecia by administering effective consecutive courses of Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor or derivatives. After the state of re-growth is obtained, the hair growth is maintained by administering periodic courses of Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor or derivatives. The invention further provides a method for increasing cuticle growth and density using a similar administration of effective consecutive courses of Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor or derivatives. The increased cuticle growth and density is maintained by administering periodic courses of Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor or derivatives.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8877187
    Abstract: The invention provides methods and compositions for the treatment and prevention of a transmittable disease in a subject, such as avians and mammals. The methods and compositions of the invention specifically make use of avian antibodies to the disease to be treated or prevented. Administration of such avian antibodies to a subject has been shown effective for reducing mortality in a population of subjects that are infected, or become infected, with the disease. The invention also provides kits useful for detecting the presence of transmittable diseases in subjects.

  • Publication number: 20110002959
    Abstract: The present invention is an improved method for the production of vaccines to transmittable viral pathogens where the virus is pathogenic to the chicken embryos. Bird embryos are selected for vaccine production from wild and domestic birds, and preferably waterfowl, that have increased resistant to the viral pathogen. The invention is useful for native and engineered viruses.

  • Patent number: 6717035
    Abstract: Novel polynucleotide sequences that encode insect toxins TcdA and TcbA have base compositions that differ substantially from the native genes, making them more similar to plant genes. The new sequences are suitable for use for high expression in both monocots and dicots. Transgenic plants with a genome comprising the nucleic acid of SEQ ID NO:4 are insect resistant.
