  • Publication number: 20070254306
    Abstract: A method of determining genetic predisposition for deficiency in a specific health function of a person using single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis is provided. The method includes performing a SNP genotyping assay of three or more genes using a sample obtained from the person, obtaining a SNP panel which includes predetermined identifier SNPs, comparing the SNP panel with a predetermined criterion defining the genetic predisposition for deficiency in a specific health function; and reporting presence of genetic predisposition for deficiency in this health function if the SNP panel meets the predetermined criterion. The health function includes glycation, inflammation, DNA methylation, oxidation or DNA repair.

  • Publication number: 20060073178
    Abstract: A treatment method for restoring of age related tissue loss in the face or selected areas of the body is disclosed which includes injecting an injectable composition containing a growth factor and hyaluronic acid as a carrier into the dermis, the hypodermis, or both, in various areas of the face, or selected areas of the body of a person to stimulate collagen, elastin, or fat cell production, thereby restoring age related tissue loss in the face and selected areas of the body. Further disclosed is an injectable composition for restoring of age related tissue loss in the face and selected areas of the body, which contains a growth factor and hyaluronic acid as a carrier for providing time release of the growth factor into tissues. The growth factor can be insulin, insulin-like growth factor, thyroid hormone, fibroblast growth factor, estrogen, retinoic acid, or their combinations.

  • Publication number: 20050287227
    Abstract: A supplement for administering to a human, or other mammals, includes a carotenoid material, a nicotinamide material, a zinc source material, and a water soluble extract material of an Uncaria species. The supplement can be in a form for oral administration, particularly in a form of nutritional drink, or in a formulation for parenteral administration. Also disclosed is a method of treating a human including administering to an individual the supplement daily in amounts effective, in combination, to improve the individual's resistance to DNA damage, enhance DNA repair capacity, stimulate immune cell function, and inhibit tumor cell growth.

  • Publication number: 20050158285
    Abstract: Methods of re-profiling adult stem cells are disclosed, which include recording electromagnetic signals from an embryonic stem cell, cytoplasm thereof, individual components of the cytoplasm, nucleus thereof, or chromosome from the nucleus, using an electronic device and storing the electromagnetic signals; and then transmitting the electromagnetic signals to the adult stem cell of a mammal the same species in vitro, and transferring transmitted adult stem cell back into the mammal. Alternatively, the recorded electromagnetic signals are transmitted to the adult stem cells in vivo. The methods also include reactivating silenced genes in the mammal prior to transmitting the electromagnetic signals to the adult stem cell of the mammal. Transmission of electromagnetic signals from embryonic stem cells to adult stem cells provides molecular information of embryonic environment, which induces aged adult stem cells functioning as young cells.
