  • Patent number: 10960076
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a gummy dosage form including: an amino acid in an amount of about 20% by weight or greater; a hydrophilic bulking agent; and a hydrophilic long-chain polymer, wherein at least a portion of the hydrophilic long-chain polymer comprises low methoxyl pectin. The gummy dosage forms can further include additives such as flavorants, fiber, and pH-adjusters. The disclosure further comprises methods for preparing such gummy dosage forms, wherein a hydrophilic bulking agent, a hydrophilic long-chain polymer, and water are combined to give a mixture and heated to give a hydrocolloid system in the form of a slurry; mixing an amino acid with the slurry; and setting the resulting mixture to give the gummy dosage form.

  • Patent number: 10817340
    Abstract: An approach to improving system availability. Availability data for individual resources may be obtained from configuration templates and stored in an Availability Graph. The graph is traversed to calculate availability statistics at a grouped component and at an overall architecture level and grouping components level. Revisions may be made to enhance overall availability levels, and the revised Availability Graph can also be exported as an implementable configuration file. As a result, this solution provides a structured way to detect and resolve availability bottlenecks.
