  • Patent number: 6426222
    Abstract: A method for inducing osteoblast differentiation and/or for obtaining cells engaged in osteoblast differentiation, starting from human extramedullary adipose tissue cells, comprising the step consisting in incubating said starting cells in a liquid nutrient medium for a period of time sufficient to enable said cells to develop, said nutrient medium containing a solution of at least one glucocorticoid and being free from adipogenic factor. Applicable to making bone implants, in particular using autologous cells.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: May 10, 2000
    Date of Patent: July 30, 2002
    Assignee: Bio Holdings International Limited
    Inventors: Jean-Louis Patat, Jean Darondel, Jean-Pierre Ouhayoun, Alain Francis LeCoeur
  • Patent number: 5985315
    Abstract: By placing a blood plasma in contact with a blood coagulation contact phase activator, before or during preparation of a fibrinogen-based biological glue, a preactivated biological glue is obtained which does not coagulate spontaneously but which is capable of coagulating in less than 5 minutes simply by the addition of calcium ions, without the addition of thrombin. The process has application to the field of surgery.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 30, 1997
    Date of Patent: November 16, 1999
    Assignee: Inoteb
    Inventors: Jean-Louis Patat, Olivier Delmas, Roland Schmitthaeusler
  • Patent number: 5711957
    Abstract: A method for treating a living organism includes fitting in the living organism a bioabsorbable implant. The bioabsorbable implant includes a support of porous calcium carbonate based material for supporting at least one growth factor. The calcium carbonate based support material forms an external wall of the support.

    Inventors: Jean-Louis Patat, Jean-Pierre Ouhayoun
  • Patent number: 5618549
    Abstract: A method of treating a living organism having a disease associated with demineralization or mineralization defects of an existing bone by applying in a spongy portion of the bone or in a medullary canal of the bone at least one biocompatible and bioabsorbable calcium salt in the form of particles having dimensions less than 8 mm. The biocompatible and bioabsorbable calcium salt is an active ingredient for reinitiating bone remineralization and reconstruction of resorbed bone spans and increases bone density and bone mass.

    Inventors: Jean-Louis Patat, Yves Cirotteau
  • Patent number: 5589462
    Abstract: A method for the preparation of a platelet factor-enriched biological adhesive comprising freezing a platelet-enriched plasma and isolating a cryoprecipinate from the frozen platelet-enriched plasma is disclosed. Also disclosed is a method for biological adhesion employing the prepared biological adhesive.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: July 15, 1994
    Date of Patent: December 31, 1996
    Assignee: Inoteb

  • Patent number: 5480827
    Abstract: A three-dimensional solid support for the in vitro cultivation of cells consists essentially of porous polycrystalline aragonite in the form of a cylinder, sphere or plate. The support may be used to successively grow layers of different cells on the support, and is particularly useful for cultivating endothelial cells, fibroblasts and bone marrow cells.
