    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to multilayer coatings that include a hydrophobic encasing layer and allow controlled release of a water soluble drug. The encasing layer encases water soluble, or hydrophilic, drugs with a flexible layer and comes in good intimate contact with the water soluble drug layer. Thus, the encasing layer conforms to the water soluble drug and can control the release of the drug. Advantageously, major cuts or fissures in the coating do not cause the water soluble drug to leak or burst out; rather, the encasing layer continues to provide modulated release of the drug. The present disclosure also includes methods of making the multilayer coatings, methods of using the multilayer coatings, and articles that include the multilayer coatings.

  • Patent number: 9138004
    Abstract: Dairy animals have been milked since prehistory. Because these dairy animals are often kept in confined areas the teat areas of these animals are often contaminated with bacteria. This invention is concerned with a process for sanitizing these contaminated teat areas by treating these areas with a solution of Chloramine T. The preferred solutions for sanitizing the teat areas have concentrations of from about 0.005 to about 1 weight percent. Treating solutions for use in this invention may further incorporate a coloring agents, wetting agent, surfactants, healing agents, dyes, thickening agents, skin conditioning agents, softeners etc. The process of this invention is fast acting and is effective against a wide spectrum of bacteria. After treatment the teat area of the dairy animal being milked is bacteria free and hence bacterial contamination of the milk, and Mastitis infections are eliminated.

    Abstract: A chitosan solution is formed from chitin, which is a homopolymer of beta (1-4)-linked N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. Rinsed, dried and ground chitin undergoes a process of deacetylation to convert some N-acetyl glucosamine to glucosamine, a primary component of chitosan. The chitosan solution is prepared by mixing 5 chitosan with an alpha-hydroxy acid such as glycolic acid. An aqueous chelated silver solution is prepared by mixing silver oxide with a carboxylic acid such as citric acid. The chitosan solution can then be mixed with the silver solution resulting in a cationic complex. The cationic complex of the present invention may then be electrostatically bonded with generally negatively charged surfaces. In use, citrate promotes uptake of the silver by microbes. The antimicrobial complex can be applied via several methods of application, including an impregnated wipe, a foam, a gel, a spray, a lotion and an ointment.

    Abstract: An encapsulated formulation for food and bioactive agent delivery to aquatic animals includes various combinations of nutrients, a digestion enhancer, bioactive agents, and a local absorption enhancer. The bioactive agents and absorption enhancer may be encapsulated within a delay layer for targeted release at an area of the digestive tract distinct from the region of nutrient release. The bioactive agents and absorption enhancer may be coated with a sticky coating so that they tend to adhere to the inner surfaces of the wall of the digestive tract, thereby localizing their release and enhancing their effect. Instead of bioactive agents themselves, precursors may be delivered so as to generate the bioactive agents locally. The encapsulated precursors of a specific bioactive agent are separately contained in capsules which themselves can be adhesive to one another.

  • Publication number: 20130183363
    Abstract: Catheters used for medical treatment, e.g., hemodialysis are filled with a locking solution, usually heparin between treatments. To prevent infections, antimicrobial or antibiotic substances have been used as locking solution alone or in combination with antithrombotic substances. It has been found that these locking solutions are rapidly washed out from the catheter tip. The invention describes a thixotropic gel that can be used as locking solution. Beneficial, substances, e.g., antimicrobial or antibiotic substances can be added to the gel. A preferred antimicrobial substance is taurolidin alone or in combination with salicylic acid or one of its salts.

  • Patent number: 8445030
    Abstract: Antiseptic compounds that act as persistent and fast acting antiseptics and disinfectants. The base of these antiseptic actions is CaF2 as the persistent part, preventing the colonization of tissue and nonliving surfaces with microorganisms through the targeted on-demand release of fluorine ions. For fighting heavy contamination and invasion of transient microbes through new application of the solution, fast acting alcohols and toxic solutions have been added in small percentage. They act fast and evaporate fast, leaving the natural protection of skin undamaged and coated with a persistent antiseptic.
