  • Patent number: 9649347
    Abstract: An anti-oxidative Lactobacillus rhamnosus CCFM1107 can relieve chronic alcoholic liver injury, and L. rhamnosus CCFM1107 can be used in preparing dairy products as starter culture. The dairy products of this invention include milk, milk powder, milk capsules or fermented milk containing L. rhamnosus CCFM1107. It has strong abilities of anti-oxidation, scavenging diphenyl picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical and hydroxyl radical, inhibiting lipid peroxidation, tolerating cholate, chlorine sodium and pH, and can improve liver function and antioxidative index, lower serum endotoxin level and regulate intestinal flora distribution, thus effectively relieving alcoholic liver injury of mice.

  • Patent number: 9451781
    Abstract: The invention provides a novel strain of cadmium-removing Lactobacillus plantarum bacterium, CCFM8610, which has a good tolerance to acidic environments. Lactobacillus plantarum CCFM8610 has a good tolerance to cadmium-containing medium and can effectively bind cadmium in vitro. Animal studies have shown that it can effectively reduce tissue cadmium accumulation and facilitate fecal cadmium excretion. Lactobacillus plantarum CCFM8610 has a great potential to be used as an active ingredient in cadmium-removing pharmaceutical drugs and fermented foods.

  • Publication number: 20150272438
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for imaging retinal intrinsic optical signals (IOS) in vivo. According to various embodiments, imaging retinal intrinsic optical signals (IOS) may comprise illuminating a host retina with near infrared light (NIR) during a test period, wherein the host retina is continuously illuminated by the NIR light during the test period. Sequentially a host retina may be stimulated with a timed bursts of visible light during the test period. A series of images of the retina may be recorded with a line-scan CCD camera and the images may be processed to produce images of intrinsic optical signals (IOS) from retinal photoreceptor cells identified in the images.
