  • Patent number: 8524213
    Abstract: Disclosed are highly resilient and cohesive gels formed by the cross-linking of hyaluronan or hylan, their salts or derivatives thereof, using divinyl sulfone (DVS) as the cross-linking agent. Also disclosed are viscoelastic fluids containing alkylsulfone groups covalently attached to the backbone of the polymer, formed by the mono-functionalization of the cross-linking monomer DVS with hyaluronan and/or hylan. Mechanical properties such as values of hardness and cohesiveness are specified by the rheological properties of the gels. Also disclosed are methods for the preparation of such products. They have use in many applications as injectable and/or implantable devices and as drug delivery systems.

  • Patent number: 6017901
    Abstract: Hyaluronic acid or hyaluronic acid ester derivatives, wherein one or more hydroxy functions of its 1,4.beta.-D-glucuronic acid and 1,3-.beta.-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine alternating repeating units are esterified with a carboxyl group of succinic acid to form the succinic hemiester of hyaluronic acid or hyaluronic acid esters. These derivatives are used to prepare the corresponding heavy metal salts of succinic hemiesters of hyaluronic acid or with hyaluronic acid partial or total esters. These salts are used as active ingredients in the preparation of pharmaceutical compositions to be used as antibacterial and disinfectant agents for the treatment of wounds, burns and ophthalmia or as antiinflammatory agents in particular for the preparation of pharmaceutical compositions for the treatment of osteoarticular disorders.
