  • Patent number: 10653549
    Abstract: A novel method of applying topical erectile dysfunction medicaments for controlled dispensing thereof through a condom or like prophylactic article is provided. Additionally, encompassed within this invention is the combination of an initial ingestion of a small dose of orally taken ED medicament for initial generation of nitric oxide followed by such a topical application. With such a method, the initial oral application metabolizes and runs its course while the topical application provides the needed dose of ED medicament. Once a sexual event is completed, the wearer may then remove the topical application article removing the topical delivery thereof in order to return to a flaccid state quickly and easily. Such an article and method thus reduces the propensity for potentially damaging excessive erection states and provides a more reliable dosing regimen for more effective and safe implementation of such an ED medicament program.

  • Patent number: 10617710
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide an agent for sedating the response of skin to external stimulation. The aforementioned object was achieved by finding a component that promotes CD39 gene expression in Langerhans cells. More specifically, the present invention is based on the finding that the combination of carboxymethyl-beta glucan or a salt thereof polyoxyethylene (POE)/polyoxypropylene (POP) random copolymer dimethyl ether and rosewater promotes CD39 gene expression.

  • Patent number: 10611924
    Abstract: A method for coating a surface of a cell culture article includes dissolving a polymer having a covalently attached polypeptide in an aqueous solution to produce a polymer solution. The polymer is formed from monomers selected to form a polymer having a linear backbone, wherein the polymer is crosslink free. The weight percentage of the polypeptide relative to the polymer conjugated to the polypeptide is sufficiently high to render the polymer conjugated to the polypeptide water soluble. The aqueous solution is substantially free of organic solvents. The method further includes (i) disposing the polymer solution on the surface of the cell culture article to produce a coated article; and (ii) subjecting the coated article to sufficient heat or electromagnetic radiation to attach the polymer conjugated to a polypeptide to the surface of the cell culture article.
