  • Publication number: 20210145866
    Abstract: Stabilised and aquated polymeric silicate compositions are described in which the compositions are poorly condensed compositions in which the silicates are resorbable and are capable of undergoing efficient dissolution to provide bioavailable soluble silicic acid. In particular, stabilised and aquated polymeric silicates are described that are capable of intravenous delivery, useful in the treatment of cancer or systemic infection, or for topical administration, e.g. in the form of a solid or semi-solid ointment useful in the treatment of wounds or the prevention of bacterial infection.

  • Patent number: 11000502
    Abstract: Copper based antibacterial agents are described based on amphiphilic copper complexes formed between copper and hydroxypyrones, such as maltol. In further aspects, the present invention relates to PEG based-ointments showing that they are particularly effective for topical delivery of amphiphilic complexes of copper. In particular, PEG ointments were shown to limit bacterial growth, even when in the absence of copper agent. However, this bacteriostatic effect is shown herein to become a true biocidal effect when copper hydroxypyrones are added to the PEG.

  • Patent number: 10722459
    Abstract: Processes for recovering colloids of carboxylate ligand modified ferric iron hydroxide materials such as IHAT (Iron Hydroxide Adipate Tartrate) are described based on the use of water miscible non-aqueous solvents, such as ethanol, methanol and acetone. The processes produce materials with advantageous properties such as improved bioavailability, reduced aggregation and/or agglomeration and/or increased iron content.

  • Publication number: 20180147177
    Abstract: Antibacterial compositions comprising nanoparticles formed from copper oxo-hydroxide are described that are capable of delivering biocidal concentrations of copper, typically in the form of free copper ions (Cu2+). The nanoparticle compositions generally comprise small particles, typically having mean diameters in the range of 1-100 nm, having comparatively high surface area-to-volume ratio and enhanced reactivity compared to the corresponding bulk counterpart materials and which are sufficiently labile to release the free copper efficiently.
