  • Patent number: 7112713
    Abstract: A dressing designed in consideration of Teorell-Meyer gradients is described. This dressing delivers, either individually, or seriatim, pharmaceutically effective amounts of drugs and therapeutic ions to a wound site.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: April 28, 2004
    Date of Patent: September 26, 2006
    Assignee: Gelsus Research and Consulting, Inc.
    Inventor: Nicholas A Sceusa
  • Publication number: 20040220139
    Abstract: An antiviral agent administered using Teorell-Meyer gradients is described. The antiviral agent interferes with viral attachment of cells.

  • Publication number: 20040180006
    Abstract: Methods and compositions are provided for blocking the calcium cascade. More particularly, compositions and methods are provided that inhibit histamine reactions triggered by the calcium cascade, using the naturally occurring pH gradients in the body to deliver therapeutic doses of metal ions which block the calcium cascade.

  • Publication number: 20040181183
    Abstract: A bandage designed in consideration of Teorell-Meyer gradients is described. This bandage delivers, either individually, or seriatim, pharmaceutically effective amounts of drugs and therapeutic ions to a wound site.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 6699282
    Abstract: An implanted device such as a stent is provided which is capable of holding an induced charge or sufficient magnitude that the device may, by electrostatic means, attract the bioactive material to itself. The charge, either positive or negative, or relative to the bioactive material sufficiently positive or negative, is deposited into the implantable device via an exterior induction coil. The implantable device itself becomes an introduced “dosage form”, becoming part of a biologically closed electric circuit, through which the bioactive material is attracted to the implanted device.

  • Patent number: 6414033
    Abstract: A method for delivery of pharmaceutically effective amounts of drugs and therapeutic ions is disclosed. More particularly, a method of formulating a dosage form that will move drugs, pro-drugs or therapeutic ions in either cationic or anionic form between voltaic cell compartments of the human body, such as from the mouth into the naso-pharyngeal area or into the lung is set forth. The method utilizes naturally occurring concentration gradients in the form of concentration cells, which are constituents of the anatomy. A dosage formulation designed in consideration of naturally occurring pH gradients, i.e., Teorell-Meyer gradients, and a method of treatment by delivering a pharmaceutically effective amount of ions or drugs using the formulation designed in consideration of Teorell-Meyer gradients, is also described.

  • Patent number: 5693220
    Abstract: An aquarium filtration system for semi-aquatic animals, such as turtles, frogs and the like, which provides for collection and removal of waste material or debris generated within the aquarium while also providing for an artificial pond and a sunning platform for the semi-aquatic animals. The filtration system includes a multi-layer reverse flow filter, a plurality of collecting tubes which support the reverse flow filter, an inclined ramp structure providing exit and entry between the artificial pond and sunning platform while also serving as a filter structure, and a biological filtration unit which also provides a sunning platform. The filtration system provides for a circulating flow of water contained within the aquarium through filter media while creating an artificial pond and sunning platform.
