  • Publication number: 20210196793
    Abstract: The invention discloses a pharmaceutical combination comprising epidermal growth factor (EGF) and the hexapeptide secretagogue GHRP6, useful for the restoration of brain damage, by stimulating mechanisms of differentiation and neuronal specialization in undifferentiated cells residing in the central nervous system or in neuronal cells. The invention also encompasses the use of the above mentioned biomolecules in the manufacture of a pharmaceutical combination for the restoration of brain damage. In addition, the invention provides a method of restoring brain damage in which a therapeutically effective amount of a pharmaceutical combination comprising EGF and GHRP6 is administered to a patient in need thereof. The efficacy of the pharmaceutical combination has a broad therapeutic window: it is independent of whether the pharmacological intervention occurs in the first or further hours after the brain damage, which broadens the therapeutic window.

  • Publication number: 20200297840
    Abstract: This invention reveals the pharmaceutical composition that includes the surface antigen (HBsAg) of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and the antigen of the nucleocapsid (or core, HBcAg) of the same virus. The HBcAg of this composition contains messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) at a proportion of over 45% of the total amount of ribonucleic acid (RNA) in this antigen. Because of the changes in the constitution of the antigens forming it, the composition of the invention is useful for the prevention or treatment of chronic hepatitis B. It also covers the use of this pharmaceutical composition in the production of a drug for immuno-prophylaxis or immunotherapy against HBV infection, and its use to increase the immune response against an additional antigen that is co-administered with the mixture of these antigens.

  • Patent number: 9896482
    Abstract: The present invention discloses structurally constrained synthetic peptides that have been optimized for the formation of a beta hairpin structure. Said peptides are able to inhibit or attenuate Dengue virus (DENV) infections. The invention also discloses pharmaceutical compositions containing these synthetic peptides, which are useful for the prevention and/or treatment of DENV-caused infections. Likewise, the invention disclosed a method for treating infections caused by this virus.

  • Patent number: 8722626
    Abstract: The present invention is related to the use of secretagogue peptides repeatedly administered as part of a pharmaceutical composition that prevent and eradicate the deposition of pathological fibrotic material in parenchymal tissues of internal organs like the liver, lungs, esophagus, small intestine, kidneys, blood vessels, joints, and other systemic forms of cutaneous fibrosis of any etiopathogenesis. Additionally, these peptides prevent and eradicate deposition of amiloid and hyaline materials in any of their correspondent chemical forms and tissue manifestations in the brain, cerebellum, blood vessels, liver, intestines, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, joints and the skin, among others. By this way, cellular, tissular and organ dysfunctions generated by these depositions are corrected. The peptides of the present invention are infiltrated or topically applied, contributing to prevent and eradicate keloids and hypertrophic scars in the skin, derived as sequelae of burns and other cutaneous trauma.
